New Take on Dating

Remember, way back...not so long ago? Yeah, that's exactly what I meant to say. Yes, back when I was dating up a storm, sometimes double and triple booking? Good grief, it was fun, dysfunctional, discouraging and did I say fun?

For all intents and purposes you could honestly say my milkshake was bringing all the boys to the yard. Alas, I've given up my date-a-holic behavior and went as far as clearing out my mental queue of menfolk.

****SIDE NOTE: totally forgot to mention I dated an ex-male stripper in early March. How in the dickens did I forget to tell anyone!?****

Amongst, the '09/10 Date-Fest is when we ran into DLC...Surely you remember him! He's still around and I still like him. Sometimes I feel sure he likes me, and then other times I wonder if we have mutual feelings.

It's scary to wonder if he does indeed like me and see potential, and it's far easier to dole out the undeniably awkward charm to "leave an extra candle burning just in case one goes out", like my good friend told me to do. I can't play the games involved; I simply don't have it in me to deal with the kind of stuff like the message copied & pasted below, even though it's hilariously funny and we LOVE it:

"Hey hi....I do believe your profile fits your photos very well which is okay. You do seem to have a lot of positive energy about you. And you sure do take very nice pictures. If i would have been around you the day that you were wearing that outfit in photo 14 you would have had my complete attention all day long you have very very nice legs. I know i am a leg man and i would have been trying very hard not to stare at your lovely legs if I had been with you that day(oh and i would have been trying my best to see as much as i could of you...not trying to be too forward just letting you know the facts). Oh and i am not saying that your physical appearance is everything it's not...there's a lot more to you than just your legs....i think i will take another look at photo 14...well perhaps a couple of looks!!"

And this is why I couldn't ever handle internet dating. You are far stronger than I am!

So if you have stopped the date-o-rama what have you been doing?

@SIF: It's completely come to an end and it has been a relief!

@Bathwater: I do stuff :P No, I've being seeing one of them consistently, and have decided if it doesn't pan out, I'm taking a MAJOR break!

I just joined Match last Sunday and am already over it. I went on 2 dates with one guy and talked to many others but DUDE. Dallas guys are just douches, I'm convinced. I hope things with this guy work out so you don't have to endure it anymore... I"M, for one over it!!! But srsly, we should do happy hour next week! This week I'm poor or I would say this week. I wanna have drinks and discuss this dating world neighbor!

Ah. Internet dating. Can't say I've ever jumped on that bandwagon, because of messages like the one you received. You poor, poor soul... :/

Lisa said...

Oh wow. That is Creeptastic! I love it. Hahaha. Sounds like a nice guy! ;)

DLC is still going strong eh? I know how you feel though. When you start to wonder if they feel the same and you second guess yourself. I've been through that 20 times with The Boy. It's still fun though. I wanna know more about him!!

Sad thing is this is one of the better notes out there in dating land. I mean at least it is riddled with spelling mistakes, and does sort of make sense.
