Every time I see a picture of this gal I know, she’s someplace new.
Not just new, as in “I haven’t seen a picture of her in that place before”, but new as in “I’VE NEVER HEARD OF THAT CITY OR COUNTRY EVER BEFORE IN MY LIFE!” new.
It’s pretty annoying. :) [yet, simultaneously fun and interesting]
I mean, I’ll click on her picture and it’ll say the location is West Mxyzptlkstan or some nonsense, and I’m like “not again! :/”
I was thinking about her the other day and started considering the difference in difficulty levels in kickin’ it to women.. or perhaps, not kickin’ it, because anybody can just start running their mouths and hope something good happens, but rather difficulty levels in IMPRESSING women, or at least remaining in the pocket and not getting blitzed out of the game.

I just became aware of the latest scandal involving an internet bigwig. Some people who used to hang out with this dude ALL THE TIME are now saying “I knew he was a creep for a long time” and/or “I heard horrific rumors about him for a long time”.
I find this situation funny, yet educational, for a few reasons. One of them is that the people that “heard rumors” didn’t say JACK **** until this dude was publicly called out for his rumored behavior, way after the fact of when the situations actually occured, and with, so far, zero evidence of anything occurring at all, other than the word of this guy’s ex-girlfriend, who happens to be his accuser.
What’s funny about that is that by speaking up NOW, you highlight that you FAILED TO or REFUSED to speak up between when you heard these rumors and when the public allegations surfaced = not fly. Read the rest of this entry »
Some online dating sites ask people a lot of questions. I know this because I have a couple of fake accounts so I can check out the local talent.
I can’t actually be involved in online dating, because I can’t get into a chick based on some unverified information she typed about herself and a couple of close-cropped pictures of her, spanning from her collarbone to the top of her head.. I actually have to be around a chick to know what I want to do with her.
One of the questions I haven’t seen is “Are You Lonely?”
I didn’t think about it at the time that I was making my accounts, but I was having yet another of the recurring conversation I have with women who can’t understand why guys are trying to touch them and kiss them and get laid when they go on dates with them.
The obvious answer, which hasn’t changed since the beginning of time, is “The only reason he agreed to going on a date with you is that he’s already determined he wants to tap that OR he wants more information to decide WHETHER he wants to hook up with you or not.”
For Context.. I explained 4 years ago, back in 2009, that I don’t “date”. I hang out -> “Dating vs. Hanging Out”. This is for the very reason I just stated. If I go on a date with a chick, it’s because I’m trying to get on.
If I hang out with a chick, it’s because I enjoy her company, and there’s no guarantee that she’s going to get lucky… Although she easily “might could” >;D
This is because I’m not lonely.
I have 3,725 Facebook Friends, several hundred of which live close enough for me to hop on the bus or the subway and see them within an hour or two (depending on how far away they live, and how the trains are running. Sundays are KRAY-ZAY), and several thousand followers on Twitter, Google+, etc.
If I decide to spend time with somebody, it isn’t because I don’t have anything better to do. :) It’s because I’ve decided that out of the list of good things I COULD BE doing, I’ve elected to spend my time with them.
Similarly.. If I were to go on a date, it’s because I’m trying to hook up with that chick, and for NO. OTHER. REASON.
This is what I feel has been the disconnect in these conversations I keep having.
I would not go on a date to have someone to talk to.
I would not go on a date to have someone else sitting next to me at the bar because I don’t feel like going out by myself.
I would not go on a date looking to solidify my relationship to someone I intend to play board games or cards with (I don’t play board games or cards ANYWAY, but I’m just SAYIN’)
The only reason to go on a date is to see what you can do about hooking up with the chick.
Other than that, you’re hanging out.
So I was thinking about this the other day, and I realized that dating situations could be improved if mismatches were avoided.
Women who are LONELY, and don’t have anybody to go for drinks with or to walk in the park with or to play cards with should be hooked up by the dating computer with men who are also LONELY, as both of them would cherish that opportunity to spend platonic time with another human being.
The ‘problem’ occurs when the lonely woman is matched with a non-lonely man who only arrived at the date for the potential of action. Read the rest of this entry »
