While I don't begrudge anyone their much deserved happiness, I can't help but wonder what's up with everyone in the world around me getting married. I haven't even been on a date in in least 9 months and the only man who gives me any attention is a formerly muslim atheist from India who never wants to get married. So much for that. At least he dresses well and tells me I'm beautiful everyday. Saturday, I showed up at my younger cousin's wedding looking ridiculously beautiful and spent the whole evening commiserating with my single twin-cousin, Brandon, about why we always pick the wrong people to date and whether or not we're doomed to be single FOREVER. We just sighed and sat shoulder to shoulder watching the happy new couple dance their first dance together. The sad thing about looking so very good was that every attractive eligible bachelor in the room was related to me. I do have to admit, marriage has not been my focus for quite some time now and I'm fully aware that it's something I need to be preparing myself for and making some effort on the behalf of in order for it to happen. I'm learning. It's a process.
For all of my dear friends who are currently engaged, I'm truly very happy for you and I really would like a wedding announcement, even if I can't make it to your wedding.
