I went out last night with a friend and 2 of her friends who I had never met before to the local pick up joint/disco for middle aged people--that's what I call it anyway. I don't really like this place but this girl works a lot of weekends and we haven't gone out or even seen each other in quite a while--we were thinking of going out last Fri & she canceled and I think she felt bad, so I figured what the heck, I'll drive my own car and if it's dull I can go home early. So the place was kind of empty. We're sitting around the corner of a bar and she asked if I liked a guy standing next to me & I said no, but the guy standing next to you is cute. She says "I'll make it so you talk to him" so she starts up a conversation, he ends up talking--next thing I know, she even gets up with her other friend & drags her to go dance so I can talk to the guy alone. He was nice--he was talking to us for the rest of the night, we even got him to dance. She was really trying to be a good wing woman, but I could sense that he liked her more than me. I left earlier than she did cause I had to work today but she didn't. So she texts me today asking if I would be upset cause he asked her out cause she didn't want to ruin our friendship if it would make me mad. Of course I said I wouldn't mind--it's not like I have any claim on him. And there were things that I might not want for a relationship, like the fact that he has 5 kids (older) but he said his marriage broke up cause he was spending so much time w/ the kids that he kind of ignored his DW--oh and he just got divorced last summer. But it sure would have been nice to get an actual date with a good looking guy. It's not that I'm really upset about it or anything but seriously, I do wonder when it will be time that I will have some good luck!
