>Yesterday, I was looking at my site with Meg, my best friend. We suddenly noticed the Google ad. Here’s how it read:

Meg thought this was hysterical. Look, I’m not quite thirty. I’m not married. I have cats. I realize this fulfills a lot of stereotypes. I also have children, which makes me more eligible for the above ad, but I’m certainly not starved for love. I’m not quite a spinster. I have BEEN married. After that very special treat, I’m not exactly jumping to do it again. I suppose dating emotionally unavailable men hasn’t helped, but it’s something I’m working on.
Statistically speaking men get married much more quickly than women do after a divorce. My husband surely did (to a really wonderful woman.) I’m waiting for the right man, not the right now man.
Is there a point to all this? To be honest, not really. However, Google and people of the world, there really is no reason for all of the sad looks and pity. I’m not dead yet!
