DSWF w/ children (more than you can remember the names of) seeks sane, handsome SWM. Must have clean credit history, nice teeth, 8-passenger vehicle, pleasant disposition, dimples, organizational skills, American citizenship or greencard.....

Ok, so I'm new to this whole single thing. I don't know if I play the single role well or not. The wife thing I had down pretty well. My lines were memorized, I never forgot the proper placement of props, and I was great at improvisation. But this new role is completely different.

I'm learning that my having a tattoo (oh what was I thinking?) helps break the ice after my new single friends learn that I have five children. I'm also learning that my married friends are at a loss as to what to do with me, and that's ok because I'm also at a loss as to what to do with me.

So, how does one fairly young, formerly married woman play the role of being single? Does she sit on the sidelines and watch the pros in action? Does she dabble in and get her feet wet? Since the pity party over the loss of the marriage has ended and the guests are gone, what kind of party does she throw next?

Just a little rambling to get this blog started. What have I gotten myself into now?

Neither dabble nor sit on the sidelines.
