Single Sketches

Girl Talk

Karen: “When you’re single, it’s best to find something you can enjoy alone. It stops you from depending on others when you feel like having a good time.  Fun should not be contingent on other people.  I’m not dating anyone right now, but I plan something fun to do every Friday and Saturday, and then I do my movie thing on Sunday.”

Lila:  “I stopped going to parties with a bunch of my girlfriends. I used to attend parties with at least two friends and sometimes meet up with more friends when we got there.  Then we’d all sit together and the torture would begin.  One good-looking guy would come over and ask someone to dance and it became a process of elimination.  If I were one of the last to be chosen, I would feel inferior all evening about my appearance.  No wonder a woman feels in competition with other women.  Men make us feel that way.  A smart guy would wait until the girl of his choice leaves the table and then approach her.”

Kayla: “I am no longer waiting for my prince to ride up and swish me away. If I see a guy I like, I do the choosing.  I go up to him, introduce myself, and give him my business card.  My attitude is, that if he doesn’t call, that means there was no mutual attraction.  Since I adopted this method. my phone rings more than ever.”

Alana: “If I can’t get a guy’s full attention, I’m not settling anymore for casual sex. It is hard trying to find a mate, and we all face this challenge in different ways.  Some of us get tired of the search and go with what’s available or we hang tough with fake copies of what we’re looking for and work off our disappointments at work or on the phones with our girlfriends.  For many of my friends, brief encounters and floods of tears are common.  They are discouraged and are lowering their social requirements for a soulmate, by liking whoever likes them.  Major shortcomings are often corrected through fantasizing.”

Paula: “I no longer discuss my relationship with girlfriends who are not romantically involved. Too often, when I’m talking, they give bad advice, sigh in boredom, or change the subject.  Now I understand why when a woman marries, she surrounds herself with married friends.”

Sharise: “The next time a guy tells me, he is “seeing” someone, I will not try to outdo, out-sex, and out-think another woman to land a man. It seldom happens and the man doesn’t respect you when you join his harem. ”

Bonnie: “This year so far, I dated enough guys in a lower income bracket to know that Ballet and Wrestling don’t mix.  From now on, I’ll wait for my dream guy or I’ll go alone to the opera.”
