How long would it take for men to discover my potential?

"Do you have a boyfriend?" Virginia asked me the other day when I was on the way to her apartment.

I sucked in my breath. And I think my answer sounded like a sigh.

"No," I said simply, dreading the conversation that was to follow.

"Why not?"

I shrugged.

I saw her nod to herself out of the corner of my eye.

"Don't you worry. Men took some time to discover my potential," she said cheerfully as I dropped her off at the guardhouse.

I did some thinking on the way back to the office.

Virginia is very attractive. She is also in her 40s.

I groaned to myself.

I want to be attractive now.

I don't think I want men to discover my potential only when I'm in my 40s.


  • being attractive to men has less to do with external beauty, and more to do with confidence, kindness, and perhaps a warm smile.

  • point taken. but i've observed that nice guys always finish last.

    how did you get here anyway?

  • you're right. though i'm not a nice guy, and still seem to finish last. but i do believe in the simplicity of kindness.
    how did i get in here? i dunno. random clicking through links while sipping my morning coffee. but you're on my hotlist now :)

  • i'll give myself another 10 years of kindness. if that still doesn't work, i'll hatch a backup plan =)

  • but but...you'll turn 40 before me. so what's the deal now? you wait till i turn 40 too?
    anyway kan, i've been told i behave like i'm 10 most of the time, so i don't see what's so intimidating about being 10.
    you have a good trip ohkay. don't forget my chocolates =)

  • i bet you were afraid of older women when you were a kid.

    if i had my way, i want to be 5.

    By Blogger Shavain, at 5:41 PM  

  • nah. i don't mind older women.

    By Blogger vagus, at 5:47 AM  

  • but if you act like you're 8 and girls who act like they're 10 scare you...doesn't that confirm your fear of older women?
