Confessions of a Brunette on the Internet 83

Another true confession coming up. A little venting session if you will. There have been many occasions where I see people that I have not seen in a long time... such as old ward members or cousins. You know, the people that have expected me to be married by now, or the ones that knew I was going to get married before and it didn't work out. Instead of having a great conversation and catching up on each others lives and what is knew since we saw each other last ... I end up having a short conversation. They ask me if I am dating anyone. The answer is no. They then ask me if I am working or in school, I tell them I am working. They ask me what I do, I tell them I work at Novell. Then the conversation ends and they move on to the next person in the room, and I am pretty disappointed. Well... here is what I have to say.

My name is Tracy Mills. I am 28 years old. No, I'm not married. No, I don't have a boyfriend. Yes, I do date. No, there is nothing wrong with me. No, it's not my fault that I am still single, no... I'm not doing anything wrong. Yes, I have tried Internet dating. Yes, I am completely happy even though I am not married. Yes, my life consists of more than work. In fact, I don't usually even talk about work outside of work. Even though I am not married or dating anyone seriously, I still have a lot of interesting things to talk about. I do a lot of traveling and other fun things. Yes, I would give it up to be married and have a family (not that I think you need to give it all up just because you get married) Even though I am the only one in my family that is not married and doesn't have children (or children on the way) I should not be treated like an outcast that has nothing to contribute to conversation.  My life is awesome, and I can even be funny sometimes. So.... don't be afraid to talk to me... just because I'm single.

The End.
