I can’t say that I share your frustration with being incapable of meeting people nor finding men. Seriously folks, if you are serious about finding love and romance in your life then the best advice that I can give to you is to go out in the real world and participate. If you’re single and looking to meet people then you should consider getting a dog.
This is Duke.
Duke is a 12 year old Cocker Spaniel mix who was rescued from a shelter far, far away. He’s a friendly shag ball of slobber and floppy ears but dammit if he doesn’t bring all the boys to the yard!! Duke is my roommate’s pet and because she’s busy with an infant it’s been my job to run Duke up and down the streets of New York so that he can have ‘personal time’. I do this three times a day.
I can’t say that I enjoy picking up poop or getting my legs caught in his super long leash but it’s not all bad.
What I don’t mind about Duke is that he has NO PROBLEM making new friends. When he sees a cute pup that catches his eye nothing can stop him from making an introduction.
Lucky for me, I’m standing there as he does so. I’ve met more than my fair share of cute men and women while in New York, thanks to Duke the dog. Breaking the ice is effortless because we chat over what else but the dog? His eating habits and his general behavior is inquired about several times a day. It’s like a whole new world of people and Duke is my network connection.
What’s not lucky for me is that he drags me through bushes and across busy intersections to get to any other dog in his immediate eyesight, but so far, so good.
I’m still here, right? I had a very sexy jogger stop and help me to my feet after one such incident. He lifted me to my feet with ease, all concerned looking, and dam he had some beautiful blue eyes. I apologized for interrupting his pursuit of physical fitness. He’ mentioned, ‘too cute’, before returning to his run. I’m not sure if he meant himself or the dog.
I decided to take the dog for a walk in Prospect Park where we came across this little seating section. It looks like Hobbits live here. I’ve yet to find the seats unoccupied and have been unsuccessful and the Summer is nearly over. Secluded space is hard to come by in New York, I believe.
The Prospect Park lake is quite large and there are several walking paths that will put your right next to the water. Normally I would have passed by but felt confident with Duke the dog at my side. Had something happened I’m sure he would have dived to the ground to roll around in play as I scream for help. Lucky me, nothing bad happened besides these fuzzy cell phone pictures.
What you can’t see is that there is an exceptionally sexy Black man laying across the rocks. I’m sitting and watching him relax. He has a bike next to him, so let’s presume that he’s been riding his bike. I’m not a creep and I don’t have a camera with a long shot lens (I’m saving my money for a new camera) because had I had the proper equipment, I’d show you exactly what I’m gazing out right now. It ain’t the waterfall, bruh.
Either way, me and Duke are so busy gawking at real life Man Candy, and he at puppy love, that I’m neglecting my relationship and sexuality writing. My bad, but what would my advice be if it isn’t tested out in the real world where it really matters?
So….my advice to you is that if you’re single and looking to mingle then you need to get a dog. Companionship, an ice breaker and the living breathing motivation to get up, go out and DO SOMETHING.
EVEN IF THAT SOMETHING IS PICKING UP DOG POOP!! I borrowed a plastic baggie from an Asian guy with a face piercing and long beard that I wanted to procreate with on the spot.
So my question to you is ‘what are you waiting for?’
