My brother is getting married.
My opinion is irrelevant. He is going to do it.
I am choosing to be Switzerland. I am neutral (mostly).
My job is 3-D management:
- Date – I need one.
- Dress – I need one.
- Drinks – I need more than one.
So, my goal for the next few months is to find a dress that I look not terrible in (nobody is supposed to care what I look like anyway, I just can’t look too terrible for the two pictures I need to be in).
I also need a date to this thing. Someone who is fun and distracting. Someone who will keep my cup full and not judge me on any of my behavior that day (so they will need to know me well enough to know how cool I am regardless of how not cool I behave that day).
I will need drinks. Swiss people drink, right? Chocolate won’t cover it.
The wedding is March 23rd so I have some time to work all of this out.
Yes, I joined a dating site.
No, I had no patience for it.
Yes, I have met a couple of interesting people… only one of which I consider an actual viable option.
Naturally, I can accept that whomever I ask to be my date to this wedding could turn in to something more, but that is not the original goal. It would be a happy side effect.
Because I have all these verify specific goals, I think my word for the year is going to be “Intentional”. That is the only way I can see this working.
I’ve been BRAVE, and it was amazing.
Now that I’m BRAVE, I need to be Intentional.
So, let the dating begin!
