Looking For a New Mate?
I’m writing back!
Depressed? -Naah, didn’t get much sleep last night because my sons woke up at 11pm and played superheroes, and then my pager went off, and I’m a little whiney. But not really depressed depressed. In a grumpy mood, a little PMSish, but - no - not depressed.
Twitter can bite me. Yeah, I know, I know, get with the social media program or get left behind. It’s not like I don’t have a Twitter account. I do. I got my account about a year or so ago so that I could keep up with the Joneses (if it’s even called the Joneses -seeing as I know no one with the last name Jones and I’m way behind on hip terminology -I still use “phat” as an adjective) but I’m having trouble giving a shit about what anyone tweets or twats or twitters or whatever you call it. Whatever!
For a while, I was feeling really on top of things, technologically speaking. When email first came out, back when I was in law school, I got on it right away. I was surfing the internet when people were still calling it the world wide web. My husband and I were early adopters of TiVo, digital cameras and Blue Ray.
I love boys....always have. There were the two Alans and a Brad, a Noah a Scott a Chris and a slew of Mikes...I wound up even marrying one. There were also the scandalous Todd and Lance. And, of course, there was the beautiful Dutch guy, Iljan, my summer camp love. It was an exquisite romance - six weeks of intense, young passion followed by a year of heartache when he went home to the Netherlands.
In reality, I would only actually call up a handful of them to go to lunch with or to talk to while I'm making a long drive. I only talk to a couple dozen of them in person on a regular basis. And I sure as heck do not care that that one girl I met in college who friend requested me 5 minutes after we introduced ourselves is "going to work...then having a grilled chicken salad for lunch YUM! xoxo". Maybe this seems rude, but I don't expect them to care about what I'm doing every second of the day either!
Anyone who knows me understands that technology is a huge part of my life. I am an on-the-go mom with three kids, a demanding job, and a busy lifestyle that keeps me running around from the office to school to the grocery store to my house.
What's your real motivation? And are you on the same page? Be honest with yourself. If you really want to friend your ex, then it can’t just be to gaze at his smile or to jealously assess whether his wife is hotter than you.
When I consult with people about starting a new business, I have to giggle at the old excuses..."Don't have the time or the money." If you truly have a passion for your new project, you will find the time and it may cost a lot less than you think, too. With technology these days, you can utilize almost every minute of what used to be wasted downtime.
