Just checking in, still single!

 I went on one date a few weekends ago with a really hot, tall guy.  We had a good time watching the Tigers game and drinking beer... and the night ended with a (weird) closed mouth kiss (what is the point?!) but I knew I wasn't his type.  He likes working out everyday and I am just not there yet. 

Match this time around seems to suck more... and/or I have lost my zest for life in general.  A few "winners" are still on there from the last time I was a member... 8 months ago... and the rest seem to be illiterate or really into looking at themselves in the mirror.  Blech.  Why did I decide the 6 month plan was a good one (stupid discount!)?!  

Also, this guy emailed me with a lame "Hey, we were supposed to get together a few months ago (uh, 8 or so).  Things with work are less hectic, would love to hang out)"   I am sure you would, asshat!  I don't know what you do for work that would keep you from emailing/texting/calling me at any point the day of our date to say you weren't showing up OR in the time since then to apologize  Unless you are literally Christ himself or maybe President Obama, you aren't that busy at work. 

Maybe I should change my body type back to "About Average" from "A few extra pounds" (morbidly obese and disgusting was not an option)... I mean, the guys lie about their amount of hair or height so we would all be picking our battles. 

Anyway, I will be in Colorado Saturday-Thursday (the best part about having a real, corporate-type job is PTO!) so maybe I will meet my soul mate there.

The perfect (shit)storm.

Oh, blog, how I have missed you!  You see, life in a relationship was too mundane and boring to blog about.  No one wants to hear about dates at Olive Garden because someone had a gift card or my constant annoyance at someone's habit of getting out of the shower dripping wet and then drying off (after my floor and rugs are soaked).  BUT, that is behind us now.  You see, I am back on the singles circuit!

How did that happen, you ask?  Well, after a nice gesture followed by not thinking things through (sewage+mop+put back in my kitchen), I made a bitchy comment.  He packed all his crap and left without so much as a word.  I apologized, he never called back.  SO, in true passive-aggressive ambiguous form, I changed my FB status and called it over. 

Of course, there are things I will miss, but I don't think this would have worked long term.  We have differing opinions on handling money, politics, etc. 

Other things I learned:
  • I don't EVER want to watch cspan or Meet the Press or Chris Matthews again.  I will take CBS Sunday Morning, Good Morning America and Teen Mom anyday!
  • Brunch at Fishbones is delicious
 Things I am left with:
  • A Yoda bobblehead.  Do I mail that back?!  
  • My fattest self ever.  This one is a real "get back into the dating scene" confidence boost!  
  • Having to pay for movies again.  THAT sucks.   
So, how long do I have to wait to re-up my membership?  Yeah, I said 12 days also.  Time is a-wastin!
