The TV set in the breakroom was tuned to News Channel Five's Talk of the Town today while I was eating lunch. I had heard Michael W. Smith was going to be on the show today but, alas, I missed him.
The segment I did get to see and hear was by this married couple who met via the wacky lounge room that is the Internet (her words, not mine). The name of their book is called Marriable
and it is supposed to talk about singles who get to a place in their lives where they are looking for from dating than just going out and having a good time, but want to date with some sense of purpose. I was interested enough to pay attention until the authors started getting into their advice for singles looking for that special significant other.
Basically, it was a lot of the wisdom of Joey from Friends
. I'm not sure if it was on Joey
(yes, I watched Joey
once or twice) and Joey gives the advice of rating yourself on a scale of 1-10 and then not dating anyone too high or too low for you. As in--a five couldn't date a ten and a ten shouldn't date a three.
I had to laugh to myself. I figured with all the TV I've watched, I could distill down a few things into print format from Seinfeld, Friends
and other shows and write my own dating advice book....
