New Bravo Show

Have you guys seen that new Bravo show, Online Dating Rituals of the American Male?  I've seen all four episodes, and, um, scratching my head.  It's kinda helpful to see that people are a little wacky everywhere and not just in the Bay Area (though I still believe it's wackiest in the Bay Area).

2nd Date

So, this guy asked me out again.  I haven't replied yet because I really don't know if I want to go out with him again.  He had a pleasant time, but there wasn't any chemistry.  I can't even remember what he looks like.  I guess I could give it another shot, but wouldn't that be a waste of time?

New To Online Dating

When a guy says, "I'm new to online dating" in an email, text, profile, etc, he lands in my recycling bin.  It's like a girl on her way home from a one night stand saying, "I never do this."  In both cases, too much justification.

Why Do I Even Bother?

Got interrogated on another date, ugh.  Why do I even bother?

He was good on paper and his emails were okay.  I guess flags were raised once he got my number and texted me a lot (on several of these occasions, he didn't wait for me to respond before sending another message).  The date started off friendly.  Then, I felt like I was defending a thesis.

When I got home, I was thinking, maybe I should give him the benefit of the doubt, maybe he was nervous, etc.  Well, I'm still annoyed, so, I think we have my answer.

Mixology

I watched a couple of episodes of Mixology (new show on ABC).  Okay, one really funny line that stuck with me, "Girls who wear flats are never trying to get laid," or something like that.  I wonder if there is any truth to this.  I'm always in flats and never trying to get laid, but it's also San Francisco.  Seriously, try walking up or down a 35 degree angle hill in heels.  I'd break my neck.

Date Recap

So, went out with this guy and he was a perfect gentleman.  He wasn't super braggy, which was a nice change.  He paid for dinner and he dropped me off.  He lives really far away (60+ miles), so I don't think he's a potential long term prospect, but if he asked me out again, I'd go.

Boom! This Is A Great Example Of A Very Interested Guy

Boom!  This is a great example of a very interested guy:
  • Guy texts me some banal question
  • I respond 24+ hours later because I didn't like the question.  I didn't like it so much that it slipped my mind
  • Guy responds to my text almost instantaneously with another banal question
  • I respond 24+ hours later because I didn't like the question (again); I didn't like it so much that it slipped my mind (again)
  • Guy responds to my text and asks me out to dinner 12+ hours later (I am happy about this because I find pointless question texting to be irritating)
  • I respond yes to dinner 12+ hours later
  • Guy responds with a time and place 12+ hours later
  • I respond okay to time and place 12+ hours later
At first, I was irritated by his "How are you" type of questions because I genuinely do not believe you can "get to know someone" by hunting and pecking out a message on your cellphone.  Will someone really know me better because my day was "awesome" or my weekend was "interesting?"  No

Why do I think he is very interested?
  • He'll be driving 60+ miles to meet me
  • He did not propose we meet halfway (turnoff)
  • We did not have endless rounds of back and forth texting (irritating)
  • He asked for a Saturday night (I've always thought Saturday nights are bigger deal than other nights)
  • He wasn't put off by my extremely slow text response times

And This Is What Happens

So, Guy #1 asked me out a week and a half in advance.  It was something along the lines of, "Let's do something next weekend."  I said, "Okay."  It is now Wednesday evening and I haven't heard from him.  Meanwhile, earlier in the day, Guy #2 asked me out for dinner Saturday night.

I'll agree to dinner with Guy #2 since Guy #1 never specified a date/time.  Guys, this is what happens when plans are not defined, girl goes out with another guy!  :)

My Goodness

My goodness, what a little b*tch.  The Brain told our mutual friends that I am ignoring him.  He's also asked them to call me about it.  Haha, are we five years old?  He needs to get used to being ignored, there's a lot more where that came from.  He's been asking me to last minute dinners again.  He's just getting what he deserves, nothing, not even a response!  If he was a nice guy, I'd feel bad about this; however, he's slimy and I want nothing to do with him.

Kickstarter

Here's that kickstarter campaign to fly NY ladies to SF.  This is either a social experiment or a great way to drum up publicity. 

Haven't we disproved this statement?  "There are tons more single women in NYC, and tons more single men in SF."  I would also challenge, "...we've met thousands of amazing, beautiful, smart, super datable people in NYC and SF..."  "Thousands?!"  "Super datable?!?!?!"  So datable that there's always a new app, site, group date, yadda yadda around the corner because people are "super datable" and seeing great success on their own?

Not to be a hater, but I'm gonna say it, should this actually happen, many NY ladies will be sorely disappointed.  If it looks like it's going to get funded, I'll throw in a 20 to check out the party (yes, like watching a train wreck).

Fly The Ladies In

Hahaha, another idea on how to fix the dating scene in SF, fly the ladies in.

i always hear about how there are more guys than gals in SF.  Well, I'd like to know, what is the ratio of straight single men to straight single women?

This Was An Interesting Read

I thought this was an interesting read, especially the part about moving if there doesn't seem to be many single guys.
