Am I Too Picky?

To celebrate my hundredth post, I'm honoring pickiness!

In our young adult meeting last night, we slipped into talking about dating. After sharing a few of my dating woes, I told the moderator/minister that some of my friends have accused me of being too picky. After a quizzical look, she said, "But it's for the rest of your life. You're looking for someone you want to sit up with when you're seventy." A single mom in the group added, "When you let go of your standards, then you end up with a baby."

It's nice to talk to people who "get" it.

The moderator added, "Now if you're looking for just a little summer love, you shouldn't be picky, but if you're looking for the rest of your life, that's different."

So I googled "picky date," "picky dating,"etc, and found the following pictures. Enjoy!


  1. Awesome pictures! And I don't think there is anything wrong with being picky. You don't want to pick someone who is just okay and then end up divorced and/or bitter. Congratulations on your 100th post!

  2. Exactly. I don't want to settle for Mr. Good Enough or Mr. Okay. I don't want to be some man's "Ms. Okay." I want to be the best woman said man has ever known...

    And thanks!
