How Picking a Pumpkin is like Picking a Man

Last weekend my cousin and I went on our annual pumpkin picking adventure. We were sweating in the heat (because here in California it is still 90 degrees in Fall), and exhausted after a long day in the sun. It seemed like this time it was taking us even longer to find a pumpkin than in years past. Too many of them were scratched, or oddly shaped, or not orange enough. After a while we came to the conclusion that there is no such thing as a perfect pumpkin, you have to look past some of the imperfections...kinda like with looking for a man...

Both pumpkins and potential mates are going to have imperfections, but no one and no pumpkin is perfect. The weird parts just make them cuter!

They both should be well rounded (haha, get it?). They should be able to stand up on their own. Guys who are able to support them self  and who can also teach me lots of new things is quite a turn on...But as I said earlier...nothing and no one is perfect.

You have to be proactive! A pumpkin ain't gonna pick itself ;)

Some people find theirs fast, for others it takes longer...and that is ok! 

And last but not least, it takes time. Sometimes you think you found a winner, and then you look on the other side and there is a huge hole with pumpkin guts all over. Other times you find a sweet guy and then you realize he's just not the one. Relationships and pumpkins take time. You just have to be patient (and I admit, its very hard sometimes)

Happy picking!
