    the insanity of online dating 

    the following is the message i sent to a stranger at an online dating site:

    “this is how it will be:   
    1. we will meet and you will fall head over heels for me
    2. you will love my candor and simplicity
    3. you will pull back because such intensity scares the crap out of you
    4. you will stop returning my calls, say “it’s not you, it’s me”
    5. you will break my heart

    so instead of all this drama and heartache, we should just fuck on our first and only date… sounds like a plan?

    he thinks to himself, “she is either an insatiable slut or a really funny girl.”  the plot thickens…”

    i don’t know what got into me. maybe it was the Bailey’s Cream in my hot cocoa or maybe it was the bullshit of dating online. men are visual creatures but we all know it’s substance that keeps them. but how will he ever get to the substance if his thinking is so one dimensional and focused on the visual? whatever.

    i don’t have time for dating anyway. so many things now seem only to exist to give me ideas for writing. and i grow increasingly frustrated that my writing is interrupted by work, school, sleep, life. i can’t wait until my vay-cay to vegas. no interruptions. no distractions. 12 days of blissful writing. it is my secret goal to write 2 novels while on holiday in vegas. will it happen? only time will tell. since my best work seems to come when i’m drunk, it is totally possible:)

    His response< 24hrs:

    DOUG: Ha! great message and I can sympathize with your sequence there. You’re solution is obviously intriguing too, but that would be a first and I’m not sure I got it in me. Between work and this profile (which is completely blowing up MUCH to my surprise???!) I’ve got a little too many irons in the fire right now. Think I must politely decline for the time being at least.
    Message from Hi-Im-Doug
    RIDA:  decline to what exactly? haha. that i piqued your curiosity is a victory in itself:) your profile is very active since a woman knows a great catch when she sees it… godspeed, until we meet (knees pressed firmly together;)

      This piece gave me a good chuckle. Hopefully the right man is sent to you soon enough.

      You are so adorable! And although I cannot imagine trying to date in this whacky day and age, I think your attitude towards it is going to land you someone who is a lot of fun and probably a perfect match. Great read!

      Look at YOU Momma!!! I love the pics. And the post is outrageously funny. His response is pretty funny too. I don’t think he could have handled you girl! Your vaca sounds so blissful. I’ll have something like that in maybe a decade or so.

        or… you could have it in a few months, just sayin:) yeah, dude could def not handle me. i was just f’n with him anyway just to see if he would respond. thanks for the compliments. i will be getting back to my pre-nursing school weight soon enough, well, before august. i’m going meatless all this month. it’s so hard not to have bacon:(

          Ha! you tell my kids and my husband I’m taking off to Vegas and we’ll see how that plays out. lol…Good God how I would love to just take off on my own little vaca!

          You…go meatless?? hahahah…with my mind in the gutter, I find that hard to believe (:

          I wouldn’t survive without bacon…just sayin’

              You??? NO way! lol…you can’t tell me that. I vicariously live through your sexcapades.

                i am celibate, but not by choice, working where there are mainly women and where the only men are either gay or married, puts a slump in my scorecard. when i get lucky, WordPress will be the first to know:) it always happens when i’m not looking for it…
