As I took a short cut through the valley behind my house one sunny spring day last year, I was looking in amazement at the dead trees, and the shrubs that some people believe to be flowers, and smelling the water in the creek (that I’m am sure comes from the sewers), when a bird pooed on my head. I thought “oh well” just another ordinary day. As I scurried along, I came across a acquaintance of mine that I will call Stinky and please don't ask why I call him that, I think the name speaks for itself. As we walked, I told him about the unfortunate incident with the bird, and he replied “where is that tree you were standing under, its good luck”. If I had thought for one minute that it was good luck I'd be rolling in it, (as you may have figured Stinky really doesn’t have much of a social life, but then again, were two of a kind).
Our biggest problem is communicating with the opposite sex. Stinky can usually make a few vowel sounds, then he has to get lost. I’m a little more relaxed since I work with quite a few women anyway. I can usually have somewhat of a conversation with them before I start to shake and have any confidence suddenly elude me, then I have to politely say I think the boss is calling me.
Stinky feels that women's standards are too high when it comes to dating, however, I disagree. I really don't believe for a minute the women suggesting that he have a shower before picking her up is considered “high slandered”. Stinky may not be the cleanest person I know, but he is one of the nicest (nicest not brightest). However, he has been known to come up with decent idea's that make a lot of sense, but I'm not sure about this one. “We will join a Dating Site” he cried out. I said before sometimes he comes up with smart idea's but this wasn't one of those times. He proceeded to inform me that a friend at work gave him the idea(nice friend). “Is this the same friend that leaves deodorant and body wash in your locker”? I asked. “It sure is! He's a very thoughtful person,” (is he for real). Stinky said “My friend met a wonderful women on a dating site,” (what women?? the guy he's talking about is a homosexual.) “Why would your gay friend use a dating site to meet women?” I asked, “I think your getting in over your head”. In the end, and after weeks of hiding from Stinky and his not so bright idea, I finally decided to give in just to humor him.
As I tried to sleep that night, all I could think about was the last date I had, which ended in complete disaster for me. I’m sure the woman I'll call (“never full”), hadn’t eaten in a week prior to our date and she must have thought was independently wealthy or something! After she had consumed several hors d'œuvres, as well as several other side dishes, expensive wine and the entree of lamb chops, I checked the balance in my bank account, then to my horror she suggested we order desert! “Desert!?” I quickly reminded her that this was not an all you can eat dinner, she then jumped up called me things I've never heard before and stormed to the door. Like the desperate person I am, I ran after her and asked if she would like to get together with me again, at which time she slugged me with her hand bag (I guess that meant no!). So I went back to the table and sat by myself looking at the bill she had run up and wondered if I would be able to get some overtime at work next week to pay for it.
I started to have a lot of doubts about joining a dating site, but since my best friend had his heart set on it (and knowing he would do anything for me), I decided to go through with it. It turned out to be the best thing we had ever done. Stinky and I both joined a Dating Site, and it wasn’t long before we had responses from some beautiful ladies. We were both very worried and excited to think that we might no longer have to make love to our hand. Stinky asked me “what should I do to get ready?”I said “just get in the shower and don't forget to turn the water on, use that bar of soap (you can't take it with you) and scrub your worries down the drain”, (as well as the dirt and body odor of course).We double dated that evening to lean on each other, and we had a terrific time. We ate, had some drinks, and danced the night away. Stinky pulled me aside and confided in me, that even though he had just met this women, he knew this was the one. I gave him a brotherly hug, and said “follow your heart,” and he did. She seemed to take to him as well, surprisingly!
Well I don't call him Stinky anymore, (no one does now that he has learned basic hygiene). He is and always will be, my best friend. Marcus is still with the soul mate that he met on that dating site. This almost a decade ago now and after dating for several months, they took the plunge. They had two children and are expecting another any time now. As for myself, it took a little longer, but I finally found the love of my life, and we are expecting our first child soon. Life is fantastic and it keeps getting better!
Its true what they say, there's someone for everyone. You only need the right rock to look under I guess. Some times it just takes someone who cares about you to push you in the right direction . Life is too short and precious to spend it alone, wondering what it would be like to have someone to share it with. So if you are interested in making a positive move for the future then take my advice, and get off your bum and make the first move.
