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.
