The Story Behind the Picture

I am not a subtle person.  I have been told I am about as subtle as a sledge hammer.  Hence the photo.

Yep, I’m single, and ready to get back out in the dating field again.  Last month I met with a member of the bishopric to renew my temple recommend.  While talking with him he asked if I am putting myself out there (married guy are always astounded that I’m single, single guys, not so much), and jokingly I replied “I couldn’t put myself more out there unless I stood on the side of the street with a sign that said “Please Date Me”.

I decided against actually standing on the side of the road with this, but figured Facebook would be a safer option  J

My sister suggested I make a sign that said;
“Looking for someone who’s not a loser and actually ready to commit”

Probably a little too blunt for me.

So this is me, putting it into the universe that I am looking for someone special.  I have a goal this year of going on 100 dates.  I don’t know that there are actually that many men who would want to take me out, but let’s give it a shot J

Do you know someone you want me to meet?  Feel free to set me up!  Oddly I actually enjoy blind dates.  Invite me to every party you know of, I will be there, flirting up a storm.  I will also be trying a bit of online dating again, that should be interesting.  Think I’m totally crazy and just want to follow this to watch me crash and burn?  Go for it, it should be quite the show  J

I don’t have a lot of requirements, but there are 3 things he must have;
1.       A Job
2.       A Car
3.       Be active in the church

Other than that, I am open to whatever.  Unless you creep me out, then I will say no.

Is this desperate?  I hope not.

Am I crazy?  More than likely.

I will try to blog about my crazy past dating experiences and the things I have learned.  

Here’s hoping for an exciting 2014!


  1. I'm all for your goal! It's a numbers game, and the more you work it, the better your odds. I just watched a Tedx talk about online dating metrics over & search youtube for it.


  3. I just happened to go across your profile on facebook, and I'll be blunt...I'm a sucker for blondes. That's something we have in common on...Blunt. Since High School, my teacher would always tell me to be tactful...and I struggled with that. I just say what I see! So...I'll be blunt're cute.

    We have 3 mutual friends, and if you talk to the about me...they'll vouch for a good way I hope.

    You're funny...I like that.

  4. what if my car is broken down at the moment?

    1. Apparently I totally missed this comment! How's the car? ;)

  5. Would you be willing to speak with the Universe, BYU's newspaper, about being an LDS woman dating in your late 20s to early 30s? We love this photo and would love to feature it! Please contact us if you're willing to at this email: Thank you so much!
