We’ve all been there. We’ve all done that.
I spot a cute guy at the bar. Chat them up. I get a drink and start flirting. Until his girlfriend shows up. I think to myself: “Really?! I thought we were going to date. He was going to be my boyfriend. He was going to propose to me, we were gonna get married, have 3 lovely children and a golden retriever…”
Yeah, all that just went through my head during the first 10 minutes of meeting this handsome stranger. And that’s not the first time thoughts like that have entered my head, just to find out that he is married, gay, hung up on his ex or otherwise emotionally unavailable. At that point, I usually swear that I will never talk to another guy ever again.
But as we all know too well, we miss every shot we don’t take. You have to remember that you have to put yourself out there and meet new people. Keep knocking on those doors and you will eventually find the one your are looking for. Or he’ll find you. Which is the theme of the story line of C.B. Bryza’s “Are You My Boyfriend?”. The book is a witty and charming picture book for grown-up children – a parody of the timeless Dr. Seuss classic, “Are You My Mother?” and one we can certainly all relate to. As I’m sure you’ve encountered these men before:
The attached guy:
The dude who is still in love with his ex:
And the emotionally unavailable man:
