'SNL' had always served as a handy excuse for why I didn't have a boyfriend. 'I'm too busy!' I'd tell myself […] [and] I could always rely on the old phrase 'It will happen when you're not looking!' That's what people would always tell me anyway. These people are NEVER single, by the way. Have you ever, ever had a friend who is single say to you, 'It will happen when you're not looking'? No. You haven't. The people that say that always have a bright smile, happily ensconced in a relationship. 'It will happen when you're not looking!'
Well, I could ‘not look’ like a champ! Not looking is easy! You just do whatever you want to do, whenever you want to do it. Of course, this strategy completely goes against the other 50 percent of the time when THOSE SAME PEOPLE tell you, ‘Get out there! Don’t sit at home!’ or ‘My cousin went on Match.com and now she’s married!’
I personally went in waves, between shut down/not looking and getting out there.
