This blog is a whine-free zone, starting now
I’ve never thought of myself as a whiny person. I hate whiners. So I was a little shocked when a friend told me to quit whining about being single the other day.
“Look,” he said. “Even the people who read your blog tell you to stop whining whenever you write about your love life. Seriously, it’s not attractive.”
Ouch. Pretty harsh words. I don’t think I’m that whiny about my non-existent love life but looking back at some of my posts -- and the comments they generated -- I guess he has a point.
So, as of right now, I promise to never again write about the lame guys in Vancouver and how hard it is to get a quality date here (did that sound whiny?). I am waving the white flag high above my head. I surrender.
No more complaining. I’m happy and healthy and fit. I have an awesome family and wonderful friends. I’m educated and smart. I have a great career and hobbies that I’m passionate about. But I’d still like to meet Mr. Right. And if I don’t, well, you’ll never have to hear me whine about it in this space again!
