Yes I Am!

Ever really look at the lyrics to Katy Perry's Hot N Cold?  Yes I am!

This part is especially applicable:
You change your mind
Like a girl changes clothes
Yeah you PMS
Like a bitch, I would know

And you overthink
Always speak cryptically
I should know
That you're no good for me

'Cause you're hot then you're cold
You're yes then you're no
You're in then you're out
You're up then you're down

Gamer Convention

Yes, the Gamer Convention has been in town this week.  I have no business attending any of their parties/networking events, but I did go to one.

Pros:
  • 95% guys
  • 90% of the guys that talked to me and/or my girl friend were nice
Cons:
  • 100% of the guys were socially awkward (think over sharing information with strangers about ex girlfriends, talking about their awesome programming skills and dislike of other human beings, etc)
  • 99% of the guys I met were not guys I would want to date, I could be friends with some of them, sure
I met one guy who could be okay (because he's tall, in shape, and could hold a decent conversation), then I found out he is in his early 20s.  He emailed me wanting to see me sometime.  I might go out with him to check out his maturity level.  He's got a great body (FB led me to a shirtless picture).

Facebook Games

Oh these facebook games we have to play these days.  What am I referring to?  Well, if you send an fb message to someone and they reply, you can see if they are online in the Apple iPhone app by looking at the message to that person!  I have a sneaking suspicion The Brain is monitoring my whereabouts via facebook.  He clearly checks my page since he "likes" fairly often.

Definitely March Madness

It's definitely March Madness on OkC?  I've never seen this many people logged in at once...like 140,000.  Think Valentine's was a bust for lots of people!  Might be right on the whole dating cycle theory.

My Friends Made Me Do It

As I suspected, The Brain and the girl are over (shortly after or around Valentine's Day, also one of my predictions because he's just oh so predictable).  Went out with him for dinner and drinks.  My friends made me do it!  I wish I was kidding, I am not.  One friend said it should help me determine whether or not I want to put him on the potential list again.  Pretty sure he has not changed for the better?  I don't have more or less clarity than before I went out with him, no change at all.

Also, isn't it interesting that I was more excited to see The Brain than I have ever been to see Smart Guy?  This just means my taste in men needs improvement.

The Brain was sending mixed signals.  Walking me down memory lane while telling me he's not sure if he's ever going to get married.  Flirting with girls under my nose while trying to cozy up to me.  This could have been a jealously ploy, if so, fail.  I was reminded of his player-esque behavior.  He was drunk and I had to drive his car at the end of the night - also a convenient way of getting me to stay over his place.  He's had four different apartments since I met him and I've stayed at every single one.

Since we share a group of friends, he'll probably always be in my life.  I'll just continue what I do best, be unaffected (usually, it does occasionally bug me).  I also c*ckblock him because he does it to me (yes, childish).  When we are out girls always ask me if we are dating (remember he is rich and has a lot of girls after him); my new standard response, "We used to date and are probably dating again."  These girls have got to know something is up if we dated three years ago and are out in public together, just the two of us.

Next New Trend?

Not only are older guys contacting me on OkC, but now, guys with kids.  Lots of guys with kids.  These guys are typically late 30s.  One guy even sent me three messages acknowledging the fact that I haven't replied to any of his previous messages.

This Is Pretty True

I think I've dated most of these guys mentioned in this Huffington Post article...  The ones I haven't dated:
  • I need to watch sports all the time
  • I will let you pay for some of my bills
Hahahaha, me pay for a guy's bills!!!

Think typically, the set in his ways guy goes with the less romantic with each date guy, with the over controlling, with the don't like your friends guy...  Perhaps 80% of the guys I've gone out with exhibit all these characteristics (and then some off the list).

Totally Predictable

Things must be close to being done between The Brain and his girl.  He called me for a last minute dinner.  I didn't return his voicemail.  I'm not too sure why he is still getting this "dating" label.

New Trend?

I've had more older guys (at least 40 years old) email me on OkCupid...than ever.  Is the older crowd getting tired of match.com and migrating over to OkC?  If so, doesn't that mean OkC is almost over?  I've always thought of OkC as catering to the younger hipper crowd.  It's like that feeling when you see lots of parents and grandparents on facebook.

That's New

That's new!  A bisexual girl emailed me on OkCupid.  I was flattered, but did not reply.

Never Ever Ever Again

I loaned a girlfriend money...this was more than a year ago.  She is still paying me back, but often "forgets."  Instead of returning everything in one lump sum, she is doing installments (minuscule amounts) every month.  Had I known it would take two or so years for her to pay me back, I wouldn't have lent her the money.

It's true, loaning money does ruin friendships. I don't think we'll continue to be friends after her debt is repaid.  I'm pretty sure she has the money, but is just taking her sweet time, not sure why...I know where she lives and am not above breaking kneecaps.  Never ever ever loaning anyone money again.

Apparently, when a guy loans a girl money, the girl can "work it off."

It's Been Really Nice Out

When it's warm and sunny out, I really don't care about dating, meeting new guys, finding a husband, etc. Why is that?  Am I the only one who thinks this way?

Okay, it wasn't warm today, but it was sunny even though the forecast predicted rain.

Disturbing Show

When Girls first aired on HBO, I was not a fan. It took me months to give it another shot.  Finally watched Sunday's episode.  It's like looking at a train wreck, I just can't help myself.  I find myself pausing the show a lot because it makes me uncomfortable.  Is it too real?  I am sure I know people who used to behave like this.  I remember being pretty confused and doing stupid things when I was in my 20s.  I also remember life as being pretty drama ridden...

LA Guys

I was recently in LA and I must say, there are some good looking guys in LA!  I'd move down there if it wasn't for the traffic.  LA guys are also pretty aggressive, fabulous!  Guys I don't know ran to open doors for me, it was great!  Don't think SF guys do this.
