Dating in Los Angeles

Ok, let's just say this upfront: Dating in LA sucks. Beyond sucks actually. If it just sucked it'd be normal levels. However this level of suck is akin to being stuck in a car with a group of strangers who are screaming while farting for 15 hours straight. And then at the end of the car trip you get punched in the faced and shiv'd. Yeah. Just about that level.

Sunday I had a date for drinks. Dude showed up in a dirty tee shirt and approximately 6 inches shorter than stated. If in fact you say you are 6 feet tall, be at least over 5'7. I towered over him which clearly made him angry. Date lasted for 1 drink and 1 drink only before we both ran outta there like our hair was on fire. Me more quickly as my legs are as long as his entire body.

Last week I had a great date. Great! He was cute and fun and we talked for hours. At the end of said date he asked me out again. I, being of moderately sound mind, said yes. We compared schedules and agreed to Wednesday with him saying that he'd also like to see me that weekend if possible. He made sure I put our date in my calendar and then we parted ways. We texted a bit the next day and then he had a friend in town so I knew he'd be busy. Yesterday I sent him a text saying hi and asking if we were still on. No word. Ah life... fun.

I was a bit bummed but whatever, right? So he wasn't as interested any more, c'est la vie. I then went home to get an email from a dude asking why I'd never returned his call. The reason was: I hadn't gotten the call. Apparently my phone is evil (wich I knew) and had been not notifying me of missed calls or voicemail. I immediately called the dude to apologize at which point he A) yelled at me and then B) told me that he prefers girls hot and stupid and while I had the hot part down was too smart to date. And then he hung up on me.

Internet, this is why I own cats.

Even though I've only been back out there for about a month or so I think I'm taking another break from the internet. Instead I'm going to go back to meeting boys the old fashioned way: drunk, in bars.

Sweetie, when you do find someone, he'd better be the freakin Prince of Cake for you to put up with this endless line of creeps.

I hope he is on his cake plane heading to LA now...

Take care,

Chuck

What is it with men and the height thing? Yes we know they exaggerate it but come on, be reasonable! And there are plenty of stupid girls out there. I meet them at Wal Mart every time I go. Maybe we can set him up. My Mom used to always say, "You're too good for him," but in this case it applies.

Haha! This post made me want to jump up and give you a high five and buy you a shot. Seriously, I couldn't have said it better myself. Hell, I'm well on my way to joining a convent... if it wasn't for the fact that I can't be so sure I wouldn't flirt with the priest. ;)

Great post.

Check out this truly unique website that also features a blog, which includes articles that discuss a variety of topics about love, romance and relationships.

Ali munir said...

Dating sites have thousands if not millions of members so good search tools are important. However, it's still up to you
search out your perfect match and not everyone has time for this. Luckily many dating services have matchmaking features
(more sophisticated search tools) that will help you find "the one" quickly and easily.

Awesome thing I found here.

Amanda said...

Is it not true that the best feeling in the world is to love and be loved in return? Finding the right partner though is not as easy as selecting which dress to wear to a party. Most of those who are looking for a lifetime partner would have to think about the "How?" This is because the search would have to be a process of getting to know the person and liking everything about him or her.

What Your Profile Picture Says About You...

Let's face it, attraction is important. The reason you put up a picture in the first place is to "attract" someone to your profile. Those daters that don't post a picture are sending out some very counter-productive vibes. No picture usually means the person can't work a camera, or worse, they have something to hide. Craig's List is swamped with posters posting messages without a picture, because they know they're hiding something. Don't do that on a real dating site. Especially one you're paying for. More often than not, not having a profile picture can also signify you're already in a relationship and/or married, looking for something on the side. I've, unfortunately, met my fair share of women who claim they're "divorced" but actually only "separated" and they still live in the same house as their "ex".

My biggest beef with people's profiles is that they upload their four or five "favorite" pictures from a decade ago. Relationships are based on a foundation of trust. If you show up on that initial "meet and greet" looking nothing like your profile pictures, that trust is gone before it can even begin. It's common knowledge that people fudge a little here and a little there...women usually subtract 5 years from their age while men routinely add 3 inches to their height. But once you finally meet the person you've been emailing and texting and chatting with on the phone, and they look nothing like their pictures, you feel cheated and bamboozled. Not a great start.

Most of us would rather see what you look like running an errand today rather than what you looked like that night you dressed up with friends and snapped a picture at that perfect angle five years ago. That's not being shallow; that's being a realist.
