Here are some things you should know about me: I could eat nachos every day, I have eight tattoos, and I do yoga most mornings. Oh and also, I’m married. In fact, I’ve been coupled with my husband for almost 11 years now (and we’re not even 30 yet!). So, you’re thinking, what in the world is she doing writing for WTF?! How could she possibly know or relate to the madness that is the post-dating world?
Well, my fellow WTF fans, I have a different role – I am the friend who is up at 3 am on a weeknight while my best friend’s boyfriend just broke her heart; I am the wing-woman in the bar on Karaoke Wednesday at the firefighter bar; and I am the one willing to make the often awkward leap into conversation with a Hot Sex Prospect so as to segue way for my single sistas.
I can dish about whether or not it’s a good idea to sleep with that new co-worker you hit it off with over tapas and can tell you when, yes, your butt looks too fat in that outfit, but this one will be perfect. I am here for the tears, the cringes, but also – the romance.
I cherish my gal pals. But it seems like I’m the exception, not the rule. Time and again, I’ve seen girls alienate and drive away their Single Gal Pals the second a semi-serious guy enters the picture. Sound GOOD to you? Here’s a Handy Guide on what to do if you’d like to make The One your One And Only!
(and by now I’m hoping you realize this is a How-To in reverse a la How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days…Oh dreamy McConaughey… even married girls can dream…)
