Anyway, somewhere in Season 4 or Season 5, our beloved Chuck Bass was struggling to get over something having to do with Blair, 'natch, and he had a new theory on life. It involved saying the word, "yes" to everything.
Here's how I use it:
If I'm attracted to a guy,
If he doesn't appear to be a jerk or a creep (yet),
AND if he actually gets around to asking me out (trust me, this is probably the biggest obstacle, too many pen pals out there) ...
I say "yes."
I always say that the worst that can happen is you have drinks with a stranger that you don't connect with, but hopefully it's at least someone who will share a friendly conversation with you.
So, yes, I've been on a lot of dates lately. And no, I haven't met anyone new that I have a serious connection with yet. But that's how dating works! It's a numbers game and you have to throw a lot of darts before one is going to stick, right?
You really have to meet someone in person to know if there's any real life chemistry anyway, so you might as well get out there and go on some dates. You can't start doing that until you start saying "yes," so get to it. As far as I know, Prince Charming isn't going to just show up out of the blue and knock on your door.
Thank you, Chuck Bass!
