...When I'm around the larger group, I call myself the Invisible Girl. But unlike the superhero, I can not render myself uninvisible at will (maybe because I don't have her curves).
Tonight there's going to be a party. It's a barn dance, actually. I don't think there will be square dancing or anything, just top 40s music and regular dancing. It's a fundraiser for the local National Guard.
You would think I'd be excited to be around so many single men, but as invisible girl, getting my hopes up around this group is pointless. Although I've gone on more than 20 gatherings with the larger group, I have never once been asked out by any of the men, not even flirted with. While other people are hooking up all around me, I'm telling some guy, who has already been introduced to me on numerous occasions, my name for the 3rd or 4th time, while he looks above my head for a girl he will actually make eye contact with.
Well, I haven't seen my group of friends since I started my 52 week project. I wonder if this gathering will be different. Obviously they won't be different, but maybe I will be. Maybe these 18 weeks have given me a vibe that makes more men attracted to me. After all, I've dated more men this year than I did in the last several years combined. I even have 2 dates scheduled for next week, which ends my 5 week dry spell - thank God.
So tonight we shall see if Invisible Girl has acquired new powers. If I could pick one, what would it be? Well tonight, it would definitely be Magnet Girl. What superpower would you select?
