Hmmm. This was a bit long to post in the comment section. It's my response to Anonymous's comment below.
Maybe it was just you. Im noticing a trend in your dates. Can you guess what the common denominator is?
Maybe it was me, but if it was, why did HE text me and say he had a good time and wants to do it again. If it's not there, it's not there.
I notice a trend of Anonymous people trying to impart their wisdom on blogs. I DO appreciate your comment(s), but you should elaborate and impart you infinite wisdom upon me...really...really... I'm waiting.
Of course, anyone who follows my blog, and who reads ALL of my posts knows that I blog about my dating experiences in Washington DC, hence the title DC Dating Adventures. If I wanted to blog about other peoples adventures in dating, I would have named it as such, so yes, I blog about MY dates, hence the common denominator is ME....I'm not blogging about yours...
In my blog, I do not male bash, nor say I have some secret infinite knowledge on sex, love and relationships. I do not blog and say I am looking for a husband, or long term significant other (at this point), nor do I blog and create a long list of unheard of and quite frankly stupid deal-breakers. My blog serves the purpose of posting about the funny, not so funny and just downright "I can't believe that happened" of my dating life. It's my online diary so to speak, and I go back and read past posts and comments often just to see if I could have done anything different, or looked at the situation differently (Brian comes to mind).
Anonymous, if you read my blog from the beginning to the end, you will see that I'm open to race, age, educational background, career background, and more than enough idiosyncrasies, that guys I date tend to have. I often give guys another chance (and another) to see if it really is there (Mr. Henry & Tony come to mind) and I often try to see beyond the person on the outside and look at the core (The Old Man comes to mind). No one is perfect, I sure never claimed to be.
As my Dad once said you may have to kiss 1,000 frogs before you find your Prince (as well as not to put all my eggs in one basket), so therefore I'm not jaded or delusional about dating.
I have quirks, just as everyone does, but more times than not, the guys I date just aren't for me. I don't think I'm asking for much when I want someone who can make me laugh, or who is intelligent and can hold a conversation, and hasn't JUST been released from jail. I'm not asking for much when I want someone who doesn't live at home with their momma, or has multiple kids. I'm not asking for much when I want to go on a first date with a guy who doesn't think it's cool to get drunk. I'm not asking for much when I want to date someone who is not married or engaged or seperated, but not divorced.
I've always said on my blog and in comments of other peoples blogs that Chemistry is extremely important to me. I don't care if the guys I date went to a particular school over another, nor do I care about the job they have or the car they drive, or whether or not they are wearing the latest and greatest from Armani Exchange or another sweatshop clothing line.
See the thing is Anonymous, I'm pretty grounded and laid back. I know who I am, and am still adding to it. I'm working on me, while simultaneously being an entrepreneur, volunteer, and having fun. I'm digging within my true core to determine what makes ME happy, while developing my communication skills with friends and family. I'm constantly reading, researching, and improving my skills, whether it be in the bedroom or the boardroom. I know my faults and I work on the outer and the inner on a DAILY basis and I would hope that everyone does the same and never settles for mediocrity.
Let me impart a bit of knowledge on you Anonymous, since I am in the giving mood.... CHANGE YOUR ATTITUDE, CHANGE YOUR LIFE.
Thanks, that's all.
