This past weekend was a ton of fun - I spent time with girlfriends at a bachelorette party in Miami and enjoyed a fantastic day at the beach Saturday. I was scheduled on a flight Saturday night, but the flight was delayed, then cancelled. I was annoyed at first, but I took a cab back to meet my friends, and I ended up having a fantastic night.
The girls were at a club called Liv, and it was packed when I arrived close to midnight. We had to work some magic with the bouncers, but soon, I was inside sipping champagne with some new friends. I proceeded to meet two beautiful girls from Atlanta, who were excited about a singles mixer in their city.
I learned that the bachelorette was ready to go, so I finished my champagne and headed back to our hotel. We decided to have drinks on the front patio of our hotel, and it became a revolving door for various groups of guys. The group that stayed was a bachelor party - affiliated with the bride's fiance's brother....small world! I met a cute Russian, and we all stayed up talking and sipping cocktails until the sun came up. I had been re-booked on a flight the following morning, so I decided to forget about sleeping...I stayed up all night.
Ironically, I ended up running into one of the girls in the lobby while waiting for a cab. We shared a ride to the airport, and it was so nice to spend more time with my friend. It's funny how a change in plans can bring unexpected connections and fun.
Also, as I stayed up talking with my friends on the patio of the hotel, new connections and ideas for Project Husband emerged - including a contact who started his own dating site, a producer at MTV and a new friend who works for a record label in Chicago. None of these contacts would have emerged without my flight cancellation....thus, it was a happy accident.
Now, it's back to dating in Dallas....I'm working on new video footage and of course, I'm working on finding my man - but I'm going to trust the process and keep the faith. Nothing shall be forced.
