My date for the weekend

May 22, 2008

Meet Bear. I’m very grateful for my date. It beats the hell out of being alone. I’ve decided I’m not very good at being alone, though there are certainly worse things in life. Bear is already making it better. Bless you, Bear.

  1. Well, Bear is much better looking and probably more loyal & fun to be around than a lot of other “dates” you could be with!


  2. He looks very friendly, and cute in an ewok sort of way. And I bet he never says ugly things to you.


  3. What better companion? He’ll cause no heartaches and will always be faithful. Glad to know you, Bear. Now, you take good care of her.


  4. Beth ~ Absolutely!

    Citizen ~ One of the things I’m already really liking about him is that he is a magnificent listener and a total optimist! He had me laughing several times last night, which was really good for my soul.

    Ian ~ Bless you, my friend. I so love your heart.


  5. I thought owning a Little Black Dress meant never having to be alone πŸ™‚

  6. TW ~ Perhaps the loneliest times (and the ones with the most potential for growth) are when we realize that we don’t *have* to be alone but that being alone is infinitely better than just finding something/someone to fill the void. Yes? No? Maybe so?

    I could probably have any number of dates this weekend, especially with the accessibility of online dating. I’m feeling sorry for myself today, though, because I’m not really interested — a strange first for me.

    I’m just going with it. Welcome to my Pity Party. πŸ˜‰ Pull up a chair and grab a beer. I’m going to be here for a while — as long as it takes, actually. That saddle feels a little nail-filled today, so I’m taking a bit of a break.

    I get what you’re saying, Ang. If the choice is between a bad relationship and no relationship at all, I know which one I prefer. And I’m always surprised at the number of people who opt for the “security” of a bad relationship. You should never be afraid of being alone with yourself, you’re really not that bad…

    Welcome to my Pity Party.

    Where’s your registry, at Grate & Quarrel? πŸ™‚

    Pull up a chair and grab a beer.

    Only if I get to cry in it…

    That saddle feels a little nail-filled today, so I’m taking a bit of a break.

    Nail-filled saddle, huh? You cowgirls are tough πŸ™‚

    p.s. I’m impressed that you gave a thoughtful, sincere response to my jokey comment; apparently that Little Black Dress has a big ol’ heart on its sleeve…


  8. TW ~ Thanks for the encouragement! πŸ˜‰ Your sense of humor is wonderful — thank you for sharing it. And yes, I suppose those nails prompted a deeper response to your dress comment than I may otherwise have made, but I lost someone I love very much recently and the pain of it is always right in front of me — it colors all I do, say and think. More than you wanted/needed to know, I’m sure, but yes, that big ol’ heart makes me who I am and I can’t imagine that I’ll be getting rid of it any time soon, fortunately or unfortunately as the case may be. Thanks for sharing that beer with me — my tears have overflowed my glass, I’m afraid. If you have a couple to share, I’d love to hear about it — misery so loves company, you know?


  9. TW ~ Thanks for the encouragement! Your sense of humor is wonderful β€” thank you for sharing it.

    Now who’s buttering up who? πŸ™‚ I’m glad you like my sense of humour; sometimes typing over the Internet doesn’t always make an impact, or the right impact, so you never know…

    And yes, I suppose those nails prompted a deeper response to your dress comment than I may otherwise have made, but I lost someone I love very much recently and the pain of it is always right in front of me β€” it colors all I do, say and think.

    Yeah, I looked at some of your older posts this weekend and I think I have a better idea of your situation now… Even though I don’t really know you, you seem pretty nice, so I’m sorry you’re having to go through what you’re going through…

    More than you wanted/needed to know, I’m sure, but yes, that big ol’ heart makes me who I am and I can’t imagine that I’ll be getting rid of it any time soon, fortunately or unfortunately as the case may be.

    As a charter member of the Heart-Sleeve Club, I’m right there with you…

    Thanks for sharing that beer with me β€” my tears have overflowed my glass, I’m afraid.

    Sorry to hear that…

    If you have a couple to share, I’d love to hear about it β€” misery so loves company, you know?

    I probably overstated things when I made that cry-in-the-beer statement; I was mostly fitting in to your Pity Party motif… I was probably more “disgruntled” and “unsettled” when I wrote that (and “tired”, don’t forget “tired”) But on my way home this evening, I ran into a couple of angels, who I think the Big Guy sent to remind me to get off my butt and change my situation, so I’m trying to be more positive now… I know, I’m ruining your Pity Party, but I am still tired πŸ™‚

  10. Oh my god he’s so cute.
    And, that tongue!


  11. Connie ~ He’s a great dog. Dumb as a rock, but really sweet sometimes.


  12. TW ~ It looks like I missed this. I’m sorry! Thanks for your commiseration. It helped and I really did appreciate it. The sun came out in my world, so I’m doing much better — I hope the same for you.


  13. Cant Wait To Go On the Site Again.
