Is It Me???

This weekend was rough for me. I mean I got things accomplished, but a lot of things in my mind got me to thinking....and that is not always good.  I am a person who thinks a lot and sometimes over thinks. I don't always tell people what I am thinking because they might be shocked (Hence the title of my blog).

Recently I have made some major changes in my life. Some I am still struggling with, but I know for the better. Some are shocking to me...and shocking to the few people I have told.  Lent began Wednesday and I have giving up some things and have been focusing on the direction my life is going...

What is funny since I have been doing this the strangest things have been happening. In a blog post a few weeks ago I mentioned the fact that I had never dated anyone. This sometimes irritates me, but I am dealing with it better.  This weekend, or the past few days...the strangest men have come up to me and I am like do I look like a person that is willing to date you? I am not conceited and I try to be very open minded, but when I say the guys were far from any type of person I would date. It is all not based on appearance either. One guy was buying a 40 oz at 10:30 in the morning, with gold teeth, and staring me down like I was a piece of meat while at the gas station.  One guy even though he tried was not able to make a complete sentence, and although he was in his work uniform, he was unkept...take pride in what you do!!!!

I have said all this to get back to my title...Is it me? This weekend was an abundance of triflingness (is that how you spell it?) but in general the randomnest, most "special" people approach me. Why do I attract foolishness? See the picture above...that is me, and usually how I carry myself, I don't dress "hoochie", I know that I am articulate and intelligent, and can hold a conversation. I will not go any further because I am just talking about the initial qualities you see when you first meet a person. I don't think I am stand offish.

This just bothers me....

I think some men, especially good quality men, may be intimidated by you. You possess what they want; they're just not sure how to approach you.
