“I’m a Loser, Baby …”

It’s just natural for people to wonder what other people think of them. Even all those people who say, “I don’t care what other people think.”

Yes, yes you do.

Even if you don’t realize it, subconsciously, you do. And, while I’ve gotten better about trying not to take what other people think of me to heart, I still always wonder.

My view, when it comes to dating, is that people think I’m a workaholic, unattractive single girl who is married to her job and will never find a boyfriend. And, if I do, he will be hideous.

My point was slightly proven over the weekend during a conversation with the stylist who has been doing my hair for the past two-three years:

Her: So, I’m not even sure why I’m going to ask this, but, have you met anyone yet?

Me: No.

Her: I figured.

Then she asked me about Snow Guy. I told her how he basically dropped off the face of the Earth about two weeks ago, and that we are supposed to go to a concert together at the end of this month, so that should be interesting.

She asked something else and somehow I ended up telling her about Philly guy, prompting her to ask me if I had heard from him. I said yes, but that a) he lived on the other side of the country, and b) he was weird.

Her: Why was he weird?

Me: I don’t know, he was just weird.

Her: Was he dorky?

Me: Absolutely not. He was a surfer who was in the military. But, it was what it was. It was just weird.
