Dating by Michael Scott

For those of you who did not see The Office last night, this quote will make no sense. But I think it pretty much sums up my thoughts on being single, as well:

“I like it. I like starting each day with a sense of possibility. I’m optimistic, because every day I get a little more desperate, and desperate situations yield the quickest results.” Michael Scott

God bless the writers of The Office because not only did they provide us with an incredibly warm and fuzzy Jim and Pam moment (hands up if you squealed when he said he bought that a week after they started dating?), but it provided me with a sure way of actually getting a date—forever known as The Michael Scott Method.

In fact, I think I’ll employ MSM today. When I get to work, I’ll hand everyone a 3×5 index card and threaten to fire them (or have them fired if they don’t actually work with me), if they do not provide me with the name and phone number of an eligible man. Sure, the Draconian measures might slide dangerously close to illegal, but it could be time to step up and do the unexpected.

Why didn’t I think of this before? It’s brilliant. I’ve been reluctant to let people set me up on blind date’s, but I have said yes. Oddly enough, both men disappeared and were never heard from again, but that wasn’t my fault. I hadn’t even met them yet. It couldn’t have been me… or the prospect of meeting me. Probably.

Just put aside a little bail money—that’s all I’m asking.
