The Problem Never Goes Away.....

I called my brother last night to catch up on his happenings in his first year of college. Obviously the topic turned to dating, and he was quick to point out that all the attractive girls he's met are so stuck so up that he can't stand it, and he wants to kick them in the face (or something close to that). Sometimes I feel that same way about the guys around here.

My brother lamented the fact that he'll go into class, sit down by a girl and try to make conversation. It's his first year, he's trying to be outgoing and meet people. No harm in that, right? Well, since he's at BYU, every girl thinks he wants to marry them so they're quick to close the conversation and proceed to ignore him for the rest of the semester.

Same exact thing here in DC....I attend a huge ward where half the population is in and out every 3 months. Hard to keep up, but I attempt to meet people and make friendly conversation. Well, I did. I think I've given up. I think my roommates have too. You can meet someone, talk for a few minutes, have good conversation, then be totally ignored the next week and in weeks to come. Every guy thinks you wanna marry them, so they can't talk to you anymore, obviously. What happened to normal conversation?! Get over yourself, I'm not looking for a husband.....
