The Hookup: Paciencia y Fe

I am a typical Aries female. Just like it reads in astrology books, I’m super impatient and want what I want when I want it! The Universe, on the other hand, constantly tests my demanding nature. Whether I have to wait an extra 5 minutes for a new batch of McDonald’s French fries or an extra hour for a man to return my text, my patience is often pushed to the limit.

Once this happens I summon another known Arian trait – impulsivity! This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but it’s caused me to do some serious drinking and dialing. Take this past Friday, for example. I was at Coogans Bar in Washington Heights, mingling with some newfound acquaintances. One of the men in the group said he thought I would hit it off wonderfully with one of his friends who is a 35-year old trainer.

“Is he good looking?” I asked, not ashamed of being a little shallow.

“He’s an attractive guy,” his friend reassured. I nodded, pretending to take his word for it but still feeling doubtful.

“Does he have a Facebook page?” I continued to pry. His friend shook his head. I would have to trust his word and see for myself on our blind date. Unless…

“Give me his email!” I exclaimed while grabbing my Blackberry. He dictated his email for me. My heart raced as I composed the following message:

“My name is Sujeiry & Jay keeps telling me he thinks you and I would hit it off. So I’m curious. You’re single, I’m single and he keeps hyping you up. Send me a pic and let’s see :-)”

And just like that, I pressed ‘Send’. Lets just hope the Universe doesn’t keep me waiting long.

Sujeiry is a natural storyteller, dynamic radio show host and the proud CEO of LoveSujeiry.com. She's been at this digital media and content creation game for 15 plus years and pours her heart and soul onto LoveSujeiry.com - the only site for Latinas on all things love. After realizing there was a void in the love/relationship Latina media market, she took matters into her own hands and became the go-to sex and relationship expert on Latinx platforms. The former sex and relationship expert on Latina.com works diligently and passionately to encourage women of color to be their authentic selves as they navigate all things love.
