Kissing Frogs

That old saying “you have to kiss a lot of frogs to find your prince,” is ridiculous, there, I have said it and thrown it out into the universe.  I have to say I find it absurd that in this day and age ANYONE could say that to a single woman with a straight face and be utterly serious.  Let me say this, why does the over and over failure have to be character building exercise when it comes to dating.  I get that you need to find the right man and weed through the wrong ones, but it is said as if it is going to be some fun and jolly good time, which sorry, it isn’t, hate to be the barer of an ugly truth.  Last time I checked kissing frogs was not fun, nor did it build character, it is just plain gross and nauseating.  An endless parade of bad dates, wrong men, and yes rejection from the ones you would have not minded seeing again gets really old really fast.  Being single in today’s world is like a having a second career going on dates interviews for the position of significant other and just hoping to find someone who will give you the position.  It is arduous having to get enthusiastic for another date when the previous ones have gone oh so very well and leave you feeling like you are just the most beautiful and beguiling woman in the universe.  Again, part of me really gets that that is a part of life, meeting people and seeing how you fit, especially when it comes to attraction and an inexplicable connecting with someone,  it is a difficult thing to quantify, but it really can tread hard on a girl’s self-confidence when dating is nothing more than futile activity and leads you down nothing but the road to nowhere fast.  Yeah, there are just enough of us single ladies to make the competition seem daunting and intimidating, but there again is the feeling of “is it them or is it me?”  So yes, I suppose kissing frogs will continue on and ChapStick will runneth plentiful for many ladies, but I am going to take a break and say bring on the prince now.

  1. Wow Girl, I like this one. you make many good points. I look at it like this, in case you actually care to hear my humble opinion 🙂 But my view is this. If you can get a date, be it an ugly frog or a semi decent horse… that's great news! Cause in today's world, it's hard to even have a man ask you out for a first date! Now a days, a lot of men just assume they can ask you for sex and that you'd actually be dumb enough to do it. But that's beside the point. However, if you are indeed lucky enough to get a date, I say who cares if it goes bad. It's good to have expectations and if the man doesn't meet any of it, then onto the next frog! As for kissing them… I don't think it's a must but if I was you, I would pay very close attention to their breath. Because I tell ya, if a man has bad breath from the get go, it don't matter if he's a prince or a king, you'll be stuck with it for life! blah!
