Remember when I blogged about Target the last time? I talked about meals for one and that Target hates single people?
I’m not going to take back those words but I do have some advice friends:
If you want a date, go to Target.
I had a friend of a friend (her name is Emily) message me tonight; besides saying some pretty wonderful stuff, she told me how she had just seen a guy at Target lay down a super cheesy pickup line on this girl, grab her phone number and set up a lunch date.
All in the journal and office supplies aisle.
In less than 5 minutes.
Who knew paper products were so romantic?

In the holiday aisle, next to the Christmas trees.
Someone needs to call the Hallmark channel because it was that cute.
I’m not hopeful, but I’ll still let you know how it goes.

Well friends, I think it’s because I didn’t look homeless.
This is how I usually look when I go to target:
This is how I looked today:

I’m a huge nerd and super dense, so I didn’t realize it mattered until my new friend Emily said this in her message: “guess I need to shower and at least put matching clothes on before coming next time.”
Yes … we all do Emily.
Good things happen when you do.
