No Hookups and Other Online Dating Farcicalities
Online dating can be a productive and efficient way of meeting a collection of like minded matches suitable for consideration of a long term romantic relationship. Yeah, it can also be a hysterical farce of a show. See the guy picture to the left? Yeah, I use that picture in my profiles because it shows off the side of my personality that is “harmless” as a couple of my friend like to point out. Here I’m using harmless to showcase myself in a vulnerable and adorable state…in bed. This is a vision and a location that I’d like potential matches to consider seeing me in. Sweet and adorable and the distracting contrast of using cold technology to portray a warm and fuzzy moment. Brilliant…I know. Trust me, another side of my personality influences things. We call him the IntimiDATER. Go ahead and “Like” him on Facebook. Do it now before I show you what he thinks that innocent looking picture communicates to the ladies.
I Blame Coffee
It’s not often that you get a chance to share an important first experience with a man, but you are all witness to my first opening of my laptop to “work” in a Starbuck’s, or any coffee shop for that matter. It’s not my first time physically entering a Starbuck’s. I’ve passed through and I’ve always wondered what all of these people were doing with their inherently hydrophobic computers purposefully placed next to paper cups filled with liquid. These people are always here, at all times of the day and night. It’s as if they have no jobs or homes to go to. Now I’m one of those people that people like me wonder about.
Single Resolutions – 2014 Updated
A lot of you guys are still single and frankly, I don’t need the competition. We need to get some of you pair bonded, post-haste. I’m not sure if you paid attention when I dropped the Top 10 Single Resolutions for the 2011 New Year’s season, but go ahead and catch up because ALL 11 of those Top 10, still apply. I’ve just added a few to the mix.
Before we get to that, let’s talk about resolutions or whatever you want to call them: visions, intentions, plans…they’re all the same thing. Anyway, why do we constantly set ourselves up for failure? Throw in a few gimmes and you’ll feel better about yourself. I resolve not to make people feel guilty about the fact that they aren’t running a marathon, so I will refrain from running a marathon this year. DONE. I resolve to support the good people who own and work at micro-breweries. COUNT ON IT. I resolve to do my part in solving state problems. For example, prison over-crowding is a problem and I resolve to prevent my temper from adding another number to the system. PERFECT.
OK, let’s jump into these additions to the list of single resolutions!
