CLICK HERE to leave a question for Hottywood.
So I’ve been following your blog and “Ask Hottywood” column. My question may be a little annoying and kind of…well, I don’t know the word I’m looking for. But anyway; I’m an attractive female. Some people say I’m cute. Some say I’m pretty. Some say I’m beautiful. Guys hit on me all the time but they usually just want to have sex. If I’m so pretty, why am I single? Why can’t I find Mr. Right?
My Phone Doesn’t Ring
Dear My Phone Doesn’t Ring,
Um, what’s your number??? Just kidding [sorta].
Let me be real with you. You shouldn’t spend any time waiting around for Mr. Right. The longer you wait, the longer it will take for him to arrive. Fate and love/relationships go hand in hand. When the time is right, your beau will come galloping along on a snow white donkey pony horse. And when he finally arrives, you’ll appreciate him more because you weren’t expecting him. If you’re searching, hoping, and/or waiting, you run the risk of unconsciously comparing Mr. Could Be to Mr. Right, which usually ends up being all wrong!
To let you in on a little secret, a lot of attractive people have problems settling down with the person of their dreams. The reason why that is, is because most people believe anyone who is appealing to the eye must either already be involved with someone or involved with a couple of someones. It’s a sad stereotype but it’s true nonetheless.
Commonly, pretty people are assumed to be high maintenance. It isn’t that you aren’t able to find Mr. Right; Mr. Right might be scared of you based on the stereotype of your looks.
Either way, you need to stop tripping off finding a man. If you’re not careful you’ll end up with a man of your mind instead of a man of your dreams. You have your whole life ahead of you [provided you don’t go out and step in front of a bus], so enjoy being single for as long as you can. Enjoy dating. Free movies, meals and vacations are something most people long for. Heck, I wish someone would give me some freebies, alas this isn’t about me. That’s a post for another blog. As long as you can bat your pretty eyes, you’ll have a wide variety of Mr. Whatevers to choose from and compare until you meet the right guy. All the worrying, wondering and waiting you’re doing right now is simply going to put bags under your eyes. Then you’ll be writing me about this same question, only you’ll be asking if the bags under your eyes is the reason why no one wants to settle down with your ass.
Like I tell everyone who asks me about this similar issue; just relax, have fun and enjoy the ride. Impatience is a turn off. Wait your turn. Get wined and dined for a while. Why the hell not? Use it to your advantage while you can. Just think of all the women who may not be as fortunate looking as you are and have no one gawking over them. You should consider yourself lucky. When you become totally irrelevant, that’s when you start worrying.
I hope I’ve helped you out at least a little. If not, then we can revisit you giving me your number! I’m getting my donkey out of the shop soon. Who knows, maybe I’ll be the one galloping your way. In the meantime, avoid walking in the direct path of oncoming public transportation.
Good luck, pretty lady.
