A Lonely Undead Flesh Eater Seeks the Same for Possible Romance

November 18, 2009

Sometimes I really do wonder why I never think of things like this, the Zombie dating profile.  The best random thing I can come up with sometimes is Testicle Kicking contests or midget tossing… sigh

Wooing Women With Baby Powder? Ugh.

November 10, 2009

I waited at Ruby’s for three hours tonight for Staff to arrive. Okay, well, I worked on some writing for two hours and then waited for Staff for the last. Still, three hours sounds so much better. He wanted Pinkberry and I find it unreasonable to say no to such things. We got our amazing-life-changing-yogurt-goodness and went on our outdoor mall walk. I like walking with Staff. He tells me everything I have to say is full of crap. I pretend not to listen to him. It’s a great friendship. (more…)

Is That the Smell of Defeat or Week Old Undergarments? Ew.

November 4, 2009

Hopefully you’ve never been in the position to ask your date/mate “What is that acrid stench?”  aka “What stinks???”  I really hope that you haven’t been the answer to that question either.  I was reminded the other day of a couple gals that I dated where there were some bad hygiene related issues.

IM Confessionals: Breaking Up is Hard to Do.

October 27, 2009

So the other night I had a conversation with a friend of mine I’m yannibmbr, obviously, and she’s fallingstarsncards and the chat went a little like this: (more…)

Wedding Dance Spoof.

October 13, 2009

Apparently I’m the last one in the world to not see the wedding dance video.  I didn’t even know about it until I watched the office last week.  This video has gotten over a million views, that’s crazy!  This is further evidence that I live under a rock…

However, with most things popular there’s someone that’s gotta go make fun of it and make a spoof.  So here’s the loving couple once more, but six months later… Bom, bom, bom.

Guest Post on the Tornado Dating Blog.

October 8, 2009

Hey everyone!  The Urban Dater’s Yannibmbr (Alex) has contributed an article over on the Tornado Dating Blog. In this piece he talks about getting shot down and recovering from such humiliating situations as getting turned down by the parking-lot attendant and Big Sally Mamooshka, the Bavarian Car Tosser… Okay, maybe there’s nothing about Big Sally but, it’s worth checking out if only to hear Yanni’s tales of woe.

Tornado Dating is worth a look, too!  It details one single woman’s journey through the dating minefield.
Tornado Dating Breakups:

I stink at dating and am even worse with breaking up. I hate the thought of hurting someone’s feelings and try to convince myself I am doing everyone a favor by not wasting time or letting feelings become deep. I’ve realized there is no perfect time and the “It’s me, not you” is a legitimate excuse that no one wants to hear.

On the Down-Low…

October 6, 2009

For those of you who are, battle-tested and hardened, veterans of the dating game you know that, like life, there are ups and downs, peaks and valleys.  My friends, I’m skulking my way through some valleys right now.  No, I’m not depressed but I’m a bit discouraged.  Recent dates have left a bad taste in the ol’ mouth.  Nothing really came from them, which is too bad.  Though, I do look at the bright side of things.  At least I’m getting out there!  I’m trying to force the action, as it were. Maybe that’s part of the problem… (more…)

Speed Dating. An Interesting Experience.

August 8, 2009

I am on this kick to try new things….I will try anything. And speed dating has been something I have been interested in trying, if only for the hilarious stories I knew I would get out of the experience (and this article of course). So I decided to sign up for an event (www.hurrydate.com) along with another single friend of mine, and I braced myself for this new adventure. To answer your question- Yes, I did feel a little desperate. I actually really hoped I wasn’t going to run in to anyone I knew. (more…)

Stop Being That Turd With the Bad Attitude!

May 11, 2009

I’m probably the last person that should be imparting self-improvement advice. I don’t have much of anything figured out… But one thing I do know is this: On pretty much any dating profile I have posted anywhere at any time always says this: “I always have a good time no matter what.” Simple, if a little absurd. Obviously if Mothra drops a “deuce” on my favorite blazer I’m not going to be happy about it and, furthermore, I’ll be very confused as to why Mothra was even in Orange County in the first place, but I digress… The point is this: I know how to have fun and it’s an attitude, but more importantly it’s a decision.

Single Doesn't Have to Suck.

April 28, 2009

I’ll tell you, being 29 and not having been on a real date in over a year could be devastating to some young women. The constant question from my older relatives of “Why don’t you have a boyfriend?” That’s not fun. Being the only single person in attendance when one of my girlfriends has a party -sucks. Everyone around me seems to be getting engaged or married. How many times will I be a bridesmaid? Not fun. (more…)
