Anonymous asked: Can you write a summation of your dating life over the course of the past year? The highs, lows, crazy times, bad times..
I suppose I can. Although, I’m wondering who on earth could be this curious about me, and secondly, why so curious? I don’t find myself to be all that interesting, but hey. Now that we’ve handled that, if you are asking me this question partly in reference to my writing that I’ve posted; I’m sorry to disappoint but I don’t have the time to write it like I do any of those other posts. OKAY. Let us begin.
A year ago, was what? May of 2012. I had basically just decided that 2012 was going to be a terrible year. My dog had passed (not that, that matters in this context), and the love of my life had moved to California. Needless to say that was an obvious low point. The summer went by painlessly enough, and I was set up on a terrible blind date by one of my coworkers, teeth (I’ve spoken about this already so I don’t feel as though there’s much more to say). After that I sort of swore off dating for a few months. Until I met her, she was fantastic, and very well could have been my second “love” but I never got the chance, as she was into some other man far more than she was into me, and she cut me off before there was anything to cut, but it was a bad time indeed. Shortly after that, on the rebound, I met my most recent ex-girlfriend. At the time I didn’t know I was on the rebound, it was winter, I was cold, I was lonely, she was more than willing. Our first date was sort of a low point, and every date on with her was too, in retrospect. She talked about Conan O’Brien and cats, I like dogs and Jimmy Fallon, it was not a match made in heaven, but like I said it was winter, I was cold, I was lonely. I should have known it wasn’t going to work before it got to this point, but I didn’t. One night, I double booked myself. We had a routine down me and her, this night I go to her house and stay the night, this night we get dinner and drinks. It was also my friends birthday, on her night, and I wanted to go get drunk at a karaoke bar with the rest of my clan. She went with me, but it was obvious she didn’t want to go. She was extremely rude to my friends (I’m being nice to her by only saying that) and I should have known it wasn’t someone I could be with. You say happy birthday to the birthday girl, okay? No matter. I’m tired of speaking about her, so I’ll round the rest of this out. We went out of town and it was the worst Valentines day ever, thank you for that. I broke up with her and that was hell, especially when she sent my parents a letter in the mail.
After a short time off from dating, I met a cute girl and we hit it off but breaking it off with her was a hell of a low point with me, I just couldn’t get myself to string her out when she wanted so much future from and with me and I knew I had nothing left to give. Then I met another nice gal and she was cool and all but when she said we should just be friends I wasn’t heartbroken. Although I would have liked that fourth date. And now you ask? I’m casually seeing someone 15 years older than me.
I’m not sure if this answers your question. I’m very curious as to who you are and why you want to know these things. Between all the highs and lots of lows there were some crazy times (blow jobs in the parking lot, friends fucking on patios) and there were many mundane dates as well, If I were to write about it all with feeling and emotion I could fill a book.
Is that a good enough summation for you?
