Here We Go Again...

Apparently I am a masochist. Or just easily amused. This weekend? I signed up for some online dating fun. Yeah. I did.

I have actually been doing this for the last 3 months but through one of those sites that makes you answer multiple choice questions first as apparently I really need to know what someone's idea of adventure is, in a very generic way, and that will determine my soul mate. This site, which I will refer to only as 'the one with the scary christian dude', was not for me. I did not like the question song and dance.

I have decided that this year I will do things that are fun, things that scared me previously and things I have been talking about but haven't done. Thusly I have resolved to: do more improv shows, shoot a gun, ride on a motorcycle, take kick boxing classes and date some more dudes from the internet. The last one scares me most of all to be honest, it's a lot of effort, a lot of wasted lip gloss and inevitably some stories that will make others cringe. However, I've decided it's worth the risk. It could be fun, right? And I think above all else, I deserve some fucking fun. I am tired of having my heart broken after I fall for guys who are all shades of wrong, so instead I will date all shades of guys. I went in to it deciding that I would say yes to the first person who asked me out as long as it didn't look likely that I would end up with my head in a freezer at the end of the night. And I did. So on Monday I am meeting random internet dude for drinks.

Buckle up, it's going to be a bumpy ride.

oh you have got to tell us how this one goes. I remember from my time trying this it didn't go well. But it's not the same for everyone. I have a friend that used the same efugly site and now they are married. So who knows

Back to your original dating stories. Yay!! Internet dates are always so much fun to hear about. Mostly because it's ususlly a train wreck.

You know, I actually met my current boyfriend on the dating site almost 4 years ago. The name makes it sound kinkier than the site actually was.

Anywho, that site isn't running anymore, but dating sites do work for some people.

Good luck! :o)

I have to be honest, this little bit of news makes me smile in countless ways. Taking this blog old school!
