    Was Reba blind dating Chicken Boo from “Animaniacs”?

    Face it, most women are waiting for ‘Mr. Right".
    And that means rich. Most of the women I know, wouldn’t know a “nice guy” if he helped change her tire on the side of the road.
    When they say “Where are all the nice guys!” That’s “code” for where are all the rich good looking guys that will give me everything I want without wanting anything in return!"
    Yeah, I’ve seen it first hand.

    Sounds like MicroGuy’s got issues. (Sigh! Tired topic!)

    Anywoo, it looks like Reva’s getting older, so perhaps she should look for an older widower with grown children.
    After all, who says she has to get married and have kids? Why can’t she live life as a bachelorette-with-benefits?? Like Mindy McCready used to sing, “Guys do it all the time…”

    hehehe… and to think that her last blind date does the same thing now (“HOW old did she say she is, and is that a bun?”)
    - picky is as picky does….

    I’m sure blind dates work for some, but you need to broaden your horizons, Reba. Or usually what I’ve found is that once I stopped looking and go enjoy my own life, that’s when I found a good guy.

    Sounds like MicroGuy and Nab need to join a club and moan about their love lives together. ;-)
    p.s. MicroGuy, if your name is accurate, I don’t think women are dumping you because you’re not rich. ;-)

    Jenn: She’s right in the demographic for the old guy who just left his wife….or, she could let her hair down and go for a younger man. I did that. What a ride! I had to support him though……

    Actually, I’ve dealt with such things, too.
    My last relationship ended in 2005.
    Since then, everyone I’ve tried to start a relationship with has either “just wanted a friend” or just wanted a sugar daddy.

    She needs to sign up for an online service – or, etc.

    My wife of 47 years was met on a ‘blind date’. We didn’t invite the two people that ‘cooked it up’ to the wedding though ! ! ! Mainly because they weren’t ‘our kind of people’‘;
    the young lady was a ’good time’ girl, the male was a egotistic ’ne’er do well’ who had father issues. Not really the kind of people you want at a Midwestern farming community wedding.

    My husband set the bar pretty high for me before he died, the last guy that tried to “pick me up” asked if was going to “do” him and his friend or did I have someone for his friend. That guy hadn’t even asked me my name and he was quite persistant, blessed be for security.

    I have come to learn that all the things men & women say about " the other gender" are not really gender related, but more of a human nature kind of thing.
    The waiting for mr, or Ms perfect is actually “code” for I don’t ever want a relationship & is a perfect excuse to remain alone.

    What is so wrong about not wanting to be in a relationship? It’s not the same thing as being alone.

    I don’t want a sugar daddy, but I do want someone who can work on my house. lol All I know is it is better to be single than with the wrong person.

    Ok, I know this is a comic and we need funny, but . . . I don’t respect people who pass on what I call “second-hand insults.” It would be mean for someone like Val to tell Reba what Evie had said. It shows Val to be an unprincipled blabbermouth and not sensitive to Reba’s feelings. Anyhow, that’s my humble opinion.
