Texting with my sister about a date so awful on Saturday that I disabled both my real okcupid profile AND my creeper one.

I was wearing the most comfortable pajamas earlier

Standing outside the bar because ten minutes early and he’s ten minutes late, awkwardly texting my sister and picking at the rosemary in the planter next to me.

Today after a book event I had in Boston a man came up to the table where I was signing books and told me a very long four-part joke about a man who finds a talking girl frog. (I don’t know!)

The girl frog keeps begging the man to kiss her so she can be human, and with each round her promises to…

haha sounds like the last guy i dated

Ray’s rant is so typical and representative of single, educated guys in their late 20’s, early 30’s. I just had this conversation with my single 28 year old guy friend who is good looking and has good taste but who has NEVER been in a single relationship. He claims that he meets so few women that he’s actually interested in both mentally and physically, so he just hooks up or avoids dating altogether, because he doesn’t want to bother getting to know someone who doesn’t immediately spark his interest. It saddens me to see an otherwise wonderful person have such a small and scared view of people and of relationships. Clearly Ray is still scarred from his thing with Shoshanna because I think he was genuinely in love with her…but maybe he only allowed himself to fall in love with her because obviously it was never going to work. Self-sabotaging millennial syndrome???

ALSO - he never signed a lease until he found the perfect apartment is such an untrue statement. He didn’t sign a lease because he was poor and homeless and living with his girlfriend because the only other option was his car. He also didn’t find a perfect place. He signed a lease on Adam’s shitty apartment and then spruced it up and found things to love about it. HMM I see what you did there Lena Dunham. Very Clever. 

I never know what to talk about to new mothers, so I always ask how old the baby is and when they tell me, I croon “awwww that’s such a wonderful age!” NO MATTER WHAT AGE THEY TELL ME. 

What IS wrong with people???

After telling that guy I just wanted to be friends and he acted sketchy, I googled him and found out he joined the meetup group for One Taste two months ago. Then he texts me yesterday telling me that “today” he found a flyer for this mysterious yoga/meditation group called One Taste and have I heard about it??? I play along and he’s basically trying to recruit me for some creepy sexual cult/pyramid scheme, all the while lying about it.

I thought I was good at filtering out the crazies from okcupid, but somehow he slipped through! Gotta figure out a nice way to stop talking to him. He knows where I live…

Am I the only one who notices how much Lena Dunham uses her tongue when she’s trying to be sexy???

It’s seriously in everything she does and starting to bother me. Tongues are not THAT hot.

quintessentiallyquirky:

Convinced that the only way I can have a social life as a 20-something is if I date. Fuck.

Yet, as my friend put it: “Dating is an easy solution to finding someone to have a beer with but more than one date is the hard part.”

As someone who used to be (and still can be at times) really quiet and shy and nervous around new people, dating has given me people skills like you would not believe. I complain about it a lot, but ultimately the good outweighs the bad. Especially when the good is really really great. It’s given me skills in small talk, maintaining eye contact to create a connection with people, and being generally charming with smiling, joking, and laughing —> all of which I use extensively in my professional, academic, and personal pursuits. 

Moving to a new city, dating has also allowed me to explore and have unique experiences that continue to surprise my classmates who have lived here for years. Like being invited to a secret outdoor concert held in a neighborhood forest. We laid on the grass next to a creek, watching these bands play acoustically by candlelight. One time I went on a picnic date to see an outdoor showing of Psycho that was projected onto the wall of a historic hotel’s grassy courtyard. He showed up at my house with a cooler stocked with craft beer and homemade brownies. So cute. The last guy I dated taught me how to rock climb and I’m going to pursue it on my own since we broke up. 

people are strange

i went on like 3 dates with this dude and on the third one i told him that i just wanted to be friends and he was cool with that and still continued to contact me to hang out, including asking me to be his plus one to the austin music awards next week.

he texted me again on friday and we just made plans to go to this cat meme contest tonight. Even though it is raining and cold and I woke up grumpy from my nap, I got up and ate and started to get dressed because how often can you go to something called “#kittencamp” ?? 

He just called saying that he’s being lame tonight and is going to unpack his boxes from his recent move instead…at first he said he was not feeling very social and when i asked if he was okay, he blamed it next on the weather. he offered to still get dinner but the whole excuses thing sounds sketchy to me so i said that’s cool if we just cancel/postpone the whole thing and he jumped at it. 

ummmm okay. 

he just called me five minutes later offering to meet up tomorrow morning for yoga even though when we were discussing plans yesterday, he claimed he had a music lesson he had to teach…that suddenly got canceled. sketchy dude. sketchy.
