After more than 50 bridal showers, 30 bachelorette parties, 80 weddings and 15 baby showers, it's not about you, my friends, any more. It's all about me. Check my blog for clues on whom I'd like to live happily ever after with. Each day, you need to think -- "Hmmm...would he be right for Lisa?" Then, when the right guy comes to mind, set me up! But, let's keep the contest between us girls (and select boys that are allowed to view my desperation).

It's the eve of the biggest makeout night of the year... wish me luck! Just in case you didn't know, the top nights that guarantee a makeout include:

5. First day that the temperature goes above 60 degrees in Chicago -- usually in early April -- everyone is in an unbeliveable good mood -- "boys are in full bloom" and you start to notice them, wink at 'em and next thing you know...

4. St. Patrick's Day -- you don't even have to be wearing the "Kiss me I'm Irish" button on this day for everyone looks better after a few too many Guinness

3. Thanksgiving Eve -- everyone is "home for the holidays" and going out in their hometowns -- good chance at making out with the captain of your high school football team

2. New Year's Eve -- sort of a "duh" -- it's a mad dash of everyone looking for someone to smooch with at midnight!

And, the number one night is...

1. HALLOWEEN -- something about kissing and costumes mixes real well! It may have something to do with the witch's brew or maybe how cute you look bobbing for apples, but you always guaranteed to seal the night with a kiss!

Since Halloween is on a Tuesday this year, that makes both weekend nights fair game for costumed makeouts!

Greetings from Dallas

While I'm not opposed to kissing a cowboy, I haven't seen any yet! I guess I'll leave Texas tomorrow still single. :(

Don't make me read this book!

Bad Lisa. I have not been good about keeping you all up to date. There has been little to no progress with the current list of husband potential.

1. The cop -- works too much and since I'm never free on Wednesdays at 3 pm for a date, I have not been out with him in a while. He calls enough, but again, I'm looking for dates not a phone buddy!

2. The guy my friend met in a bar and gave my email to -- saw him last weekend, but he was a bit overserved and had the hiccups, which was pretty funny, but again, not too charming as you're looking at him as your future husband! He did buy me some pizza at the end of the night, which was nice. He's got 4 weddings to go to over the next three weeks, which gave me a reason to flee. That's all I need is to be a date at four more weddings -- get that grand total to 85! No way. Anyway, I'm pretty sure I'll go out with him again sometime in November. Until then, it's strictly an email relationship!

3. The waiter that my friend met at an event -- I was given his email and his phone number. I chose email. Sent him an email and well...never heard back from him. I call? I say no, but then again, what if he never got the email? I can't get too upset about this since well, he never met me so at least, it isn't personal!!!

Rumor has it that the following people know someone for me...
- Carol, "TV producer guy"
- Amy & Scott, "guy named Jim"
- Kelly, "bald guy"
- Ann, "hockey guy"
- Kristin, "new guy at work"
- Dena, "contractor guy"

Get busy people, I'm not getting any younger!!!

Do I have any dates this week, you ask?

Not yet. I stress the "yet" because I'm optimistic. Who is still in the dating hopper you ask?
1. The cop
2. The email guy
3. A waiter that my friend Brooke met at an event she went to (he had red hair and he is single so he met at least two must haves)

For those of you that read my blog and NEVER post, then complain that I don't update frequently enough, I must remind you that this blog is not for your entertainment! I ask, "What have you done for me lately?" Keep reading, but keep looking for "my guy!" And, if you're going to read, you gotta post! Give me some dating tips if you must, but don't just laugh at my dating failures and go on with your day :)

Must have #10: A passport! I have a lot of places to visit and I'm going to need someone to travel with. And, while I haven't been to all 50 states, I think Oklahoma can wait while Bora Bora calls.
