A few months ago, a friend asked me if I was single and suggested setting me up with her sister. I said she didn't have to, but I wouldn't argue with her and played up how busy I was (and I really was, but I would have made time). Then recently, another friend's dad and he asked me if I was seeing anyone. I told him in a joking kind of tone "No, but if you know anyone..."
So what gives? Why do I act like it's not a big deal? I mean, it is, but not to the point that I wake up, go through my day, and go to bed thinking about how to find a girlfriend. Why do I have such trouble "admitting" that I'd like to date someone?
