Well thats one friend I never made

I was going post a story about a excursion I took a few Saturdays ago to eastern Iowa. With a friend from work to check out an open house for a husband and wife artists friends of his. Or how I was going to show me attempt to make some holiday treats for family and friends. But instead something happened this past Sunday that has me a little bummed out. For quite some time I've been trying to get the attention of a certain someone, and am not sure the best way to do it. Our two lifes don't cross that often, but I found they would be in certain places almost every day and time each week. So I made sure to be there as well. And me being over cautious and this being a small town, I guess I started to be a little bit too obvious. The last time I saw them they were more than flustered and now I'm afraid I won't get to know them better. I left the store we were at thinking well I guess I F#*ked that one up! And I now fell like I'm back at square one as far as meeting someone new. I'm sorry I can't be more open as far as were, what, and names. I'm not ready to open up more yet. I thought maybe some other blogger would have some sage advice. I think I already know, I'll just more on and let it go. They are just not into me. Well that's enough drama for one post. Normally I'm very much drama free. And to my blgger buddy Ron- Retired in Delaware I found the larger font key!


  1. Hey Randy! Perfect sized font! Easy to read. Now about the subject of your post. You got the hang of a blog post. Just tell us how you feel. No names are necessary (usually my mistake, too many names and I get into trouble). Randy, all of us at one time or another in our lives have seen someone we would like to get to know better. How to let them know? There is no easy answer other than to make yourself available. Sometimes the best thing is just to put yourself out front and take the chance of being rejected. As you know I am in a situation know that had it not been for this particular individual to put himself in front of me, I would have missed the biggest and best opportunity of my life to know this truly fine gentleman. He took the chance and it paid off. Having said that, there are many times that I have put myself in a similar situation and been rejected outright but you never know unless you try. I was lucky, maybe you'll be lucky too. Good luck!

    Your friend,


  2. I second ron. it's tough to be rejected time and time again (and I don't handle rejection all that well). before I met spouse, I went thru A LOT of frogs. but ya gotta keep trying, cause the best might be just around the corner!

    as dan rather used to say: "courage!"

    smooches! :)

    1. I agree with Anne Marie. I've lost count of the times I've been rejected. It happens to all of us. You just have to go back up to bat. If you don't then it's guaranteed you'll never realize your dream. Never give up, never.


  3. Sounds disappointing. I hope things work out better next time. Do you think this one is a no-go, or could there be a second chance?
