Where the Boys Are...

Are you old enough to remember Connie Francis’ song “Where The Boys Are”? She pines for her yet unmet love:

“Where the boys are, someone waits for me...
A smilin’ face, a warm embrace, two arms to hold me tenderly"...

Don’t you wish you could just be walking down the street one day, and your soul mate would find you in the crowd? what a romantic notion... but not very realistic, you know.

Okay, not an option; so common sense would then tell you to go where the odds are stacked in your favor — where you’d be surrounded by hordes of intelligent, fun-seeking, educated, fit, straight, eligible bachelors. There's safety in numbers.

On a recent Oprah Show, she revealed the best cities to meet single men. Based on an article from Men’s Health Magazine, entitled “Women, Here’s the Best Place to Find a Man”, she listed the top cities in which to find men over 35.

Men’s Health sorted data by 7 criteria: fitness, ratio of single men/women, low divorce rate, philanthropy, education, and thrill factor. What they didn’t factor in are things like social skills, employment data and interest in settling down.

Their findings: The 5 American cities with the most & best eligible bachelors were:
1.San José
2.Salt Lake City
3.Arlington, TX
4.Raleigh, NC
5.San Francisco

Interesting information. But useless. What are you gonna do, pack your bags and head for the Bay Area, where the median price for a home is $700K? Are you a single woman who is actually having trouble deciding on what new city to move to? Then by all means, pick one of the above. But if you are like the rest of us working stiffs, you have to make do with what ya got!

Take heart, though, there are many ways to increase your chances of finding your own true love... right in your own back yard. Give this a quick read:  Where & How to Meet Good Men.


First Love is True Love

Stumbled across an interesting blog entry by Yasmin Ahmad on first love :

---"First love has always fascinated me because it happens to you at a time when you have not yet learned to lie to yourself. With first love, within five minutes, you accept the other person for everything that they are, warts and all. I believe that our first love is the truest love of all. Unfortunately, most people I know do not even believe there is such a thing as "true love".

They remind me of the last words in a poem by Wislawa Szymborska:
"Let the people who never find true love believe that there is no such thing. Their faith will make it easier for them to live and die."

P.S. From Stella: There is such a thing as true love. Just because you haven't found it yet doesn't mean it doesn't exist. I do not believe that there is only one true love meant for you in this universe. I think that true love probably passes right under your nose many times during your life. You just have to be receptive to it, recognize it when it comes, and be willing to nurture it as the delicate and fragile treasure it is.

This is a great book to help you become more receptive to love when it passes by:
