I appreciate your concern, but...

So there I am at 9:00 a.m. waiting in the Chiropractors office awaiting the relief that will soon follow from a little crackin of the back. It's early enough in the day that I don't have a lot of things on my mind yet and it's a good day. The Dr. calls my name because it's my turn, I lay on the table and the first question out of his mouth before he asks how my back is doing is "So, how's the boyfriend?"

So much from my good morning.

I had to break the news to him and inform him that, once again, there is no boyfriend.  I had hoped by the tone of my voice he would catch the fact that the topic should be changed and conversation of "boyfriend" over.


He then proceeded to tell me that around his office, they all guessed I was jugglin multiple men each weekend.

That sounds sketchy, I know. But it wasn't.

15 minutes of my 30 minute appointment was consumed of DATING ADVICE from my chiropractor!


Things like, "well, the guys are most likely more nervous than you to talk to you, so you should initiate some conversations to ease their nerves." or, "a smile goes a long way." and "you'd be surprised what a touch on the elbow will do".

OK... I can understand the little nudges here and there from the family and friends, but really? Him?

It's not as weird when I walk into my aunt an uncles house and the first thing Devin asks me is whether or not I'll be getting married anytime soon. Then after I reply with that answer that everyone hates he says "Oh... I better start praying for you then. How about we say a prayer right now?"

Thank you for your deep concern world, but I'm fully aware of the fact that I am single. And, it's okay.

Most days :)


  1. oh geez. why can't people just ignore the fact that you're not dating? that's what i do and it keeps me sane most days.

  2. and of course i meant the general you. not you, sarah harris. ignoring the fact that you're not dating is not what keeps me sane. =)
