Time to hit the polls!

Dear readers,

I need your help.

Whether you are a loyal stopper-by'er or have ended up here by chance, place take a minute to answer my poll on the right. In fact, tell your friends and fam to stop by and make their mark.

So once upon a time, say oh 8pm-ish last night, I was told by the running buddy that I was "not the marrying type." And while I am the first to admit that marriage is far from the top of my priority pile, I'd like to think think that someday my prince will come. Normally these sort of topics and things are not even pertinant in my world. But I digress, this bold statement really rubbed me the WRONG way. And as I made whatever snide remark back that I inevitably made, the given retort was "I said you were not the marrying type, its not like I told you you were unmarriable." Whiskey Tango Foxtrot!! Isn't that exactly what was said?

I mulled this over the entire duration of my swim workout last night, which I might add was a lovely workout, and decided to pose this question to the people:

Is there a difference between "not the marrying type" and "unmarriable"?

Now at the very least, please take a moment to participate in my poll. All you've got to do is click Yes or No. If you are feeling like helping me out, tell a friend or two to vote in my poll. And if you are REALLY inspired, leave me a comment or two. Every little bit helps.

OH!! And if you think that they are in fact different, can you take a second to explain how they are? I'm trying to make peace with this statement.....

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I voted yes there is a difference. Your local psycopath is unmarriable. I don't think you qualify, although you did voluntarily sign up for Ironman, so I suppose the jury is still out.

I wouldn't take it so hard, men say (and do) stupid things, just the way it is.

there is a difference

for sure

i think it is a matter of perspective

from your perspective, you are marryable, but not going to get married right now

from someone else's perspective, cause you are not going to get married right now, you might be unmarry-able

they are silly

discuss amoungst yourselves
