Won’t You Hold My Hand?

Well, since I am pretty much anonymous…I guess I can be honest! I was on birth control for two years. Only for the sheer fact I had outrageous PMS.  However, a correct diagnosis of a hypothyroid could have saved me from all of this. Needless to say, I was on “the pill.” Don’t they just refer to all brands as “the pill?” Anywho. The Joker told me when she was on it took away her “sex drive.” Well, I didn’t care, I wasn’t using it for that! A saving grace really. A good way to stay single and not even care.

Now I have been off of it for a few months. (Remember when I said no one night stands, I have morals? I don’t know if you are picking up on this, but the lack of a certain activity makes it perfectly ok for me to be off it.) But, now that I am not on it…it is like I have this incessant need to look around and consider the options. If I am sitting next to one of my single guy friends…I will wonder what it would be like to date him or hold his hand, etc. It is so weird. When this all starts happening, I have to consider (no offense and all), but am I lowering my standards? Throwing caution to the wind? I mean, I like my friends, but I know that some of these guys–not for me. They are great, there are just a few missing points.

So does one loosen up the standards as they get older? I know there has to be some realistic compromise. Even still, maybe it is that I just don’t know what I want.
