This morning I woke up and did my usual.
It never seemed like a morning that anything significant would jump out at me. When I signed into my Facebook account I saw that I had three friends celebrating their birthdays today, July 22nd.
That’s when I noticed it. All three Facebook friends were guys I had a crush on at one point in time or another.
Maybe I should look into this July 22nd thing enuh

1. The first guy I had met at the church I grew up. I cannot remember exactly ‘meeting’ him since he was always there. What I do remember is suddenly crushing over him when previously he did not appeal to me. I took it as a lesson to be learned; I had said I could never see myself with a certain type of guy and lets just say, he set of a chain reaction. He was so reserved and I don’t know why I found that interesting because I usually don’t. He IS soft spoken and prefers the background. He isn’t one for the flashing lights and attention though I did question this when he bought his first car! (Can I tell you, that after I had let the crush go, that care reignited it!!!! HOT! Just proved to me that men with cars are way more attractive. Now I sound superficial…but I digress.) He must have been the first guy I dubbed ‘my husband‘ without the qualifier of ‘future‘. Silly childhood. PG
2.The second guy I met at my other church. When I was in Kingston I attended a particular class at church and there was this guy there. I never spoke to him for the first year of being in class with him but I did take notice of the fact that he had a striking resemblance to my then favourite gospel artiste Tye Tribbett. Coincidentally, when I actually uttered a few sentences to him it was in the same year that Tye Tribbett and G.A. would be making their second appearance in Jamaica. We bonded over it and decided to meet up at the concert. Low and behold after using another friend’s phone (a female from the same class at at church as us) to text arrangements to him, he thought the number was mine. I can’t remember finding him in the crowd but after the event he kept texting the number which lead me me to believe that he was interested in my friend. I had assumed he knew who the number belonged to since we all had a sheet with the contact information of everyone in the class. I will never forget when he called me saying that all this time he thought he was messaging me. Long and short of the story, we became pretty good friends. AC
3. The third guy I met during my final year at the University of the West Indies. It is amazing how we are still friends considering what his first impressions of me must have been! I should say that my final year at university was my bold, experience-everything-while-you-can year. Every year had its own thing. I had to work with/ alongside (I cannot decide which tells is best) this guy. he was really tall. I cannot say anything more for fear of singling him out. The whole experience of crushing over him opened my eyes to new things. Tall guys are fun (when they aren’t trying to get the spotlight off them). Big up my Saturday-morning-cartoon friend OH
@Char_Donae Oh! Very dominating types, aren’t they?

But I cannot seem to pin point any character trait that was similar to all three guys. I cannot pin down what drew me to like three men all born on the 22nd of July as everything was so different about each. I am not one for finding out what the stars say about anything because I should have been rich and in love by now…but horoscopes are slightly off, right?
