Cat Got My Tongue? July 26, 2011

Huh, funny that when writing a dating blog there isn’t much to post about when not actually dating.  Or communicating with anyone.  It didn’t even occur to me until today, when I had nothing to write, that I haven’t logged onto any of my bazillions of dating sites since early last week.  Huh.

I usually log on to at least one site a day.  Unless, of course, we’re talking about Plenty Of  Tools, in which case it’s more like once a quarter (which is still too often).  I don’t think I’ve even thought about it.  Sure, to most this doesn’t seem like a big deal, but really, its been sorta my ‘thing’ for the last 19 months. 

I log on, I wink, I e-mail, I respond, I go out, I don’t like the guy, I come home, I log back on and the whole cycle starts again.  I guess this a newly discovered measuring tool (haha tool=internet dating, get it?) for me to recognize if I like a guy or not.  Not in the whole ‘put your eggs in one basket’ after one date (regardless of how good it was), but more of a ‘why would I want to look for bigger/better/shinier/whatever, if I like this one?’  I’ve read a lot of blog posts lately about ‘serial daters’.  I don’t think I am one.  I don’t think I’ve ever been one.  I think I will date more than one guy if I’m not certain (or am absolutely certain that there’s not) that I really like them or that there is potential for a future together.  I won’t, however, even look at profiles if I think I do like someone.  I tried to do it when I was seeing Webster and we all know how that worked out.  Every guy got compared to him, so why bother? 

I didn’t look at other profiles until the final stages of my short-lived (yet way too long) romance with Irish Guy.  I hid my profiles after I met Webster, only to be put back up entirely too soon once I realized only one of us was ‘present’ in the pairing.  I haven’t looked at anyone since meeting TallDark.  No, no, no, although I do consider myself a bit of a romantic at heart, I do not envision hearts and flowers and white picket fences with someone after one date.  If I do think that I like them though, I certainly owe them the respect of at least giving it a shot.  However short-lived that shot may be.  As an aside, I do think I have some record breakingly short-lived encounters. 😉 Where’s my award?

As I have no clue what’s going on with Tuesday Guy (and I had already bitchily deemed him ‘filler’) and know that TallDark is not to be, I seem to be left with nothing in the works.  And with a birthday around the corner and my really really really wanting a shiny new bike to commemorate the occasion, I guess I better get back to work.  Or else you’re all going to be bored to tears when I start posting pictures of my dogs and other random shit on here. 😉

    Too many fish in the sea for you to be down…being down is not your thing…

    Your dogs are frickin adorable. Who would be bored with pics of them?? Not me!!

    I prayed to the Tigers that you would get a shiny new bike for your b-day present. I also sent a note to Santa…and the Tooth Fairy. Tonight I will wish upon a star. You never know…somebody might answer.

    You are a marvellous monogamist 🙂

    • haha, thanks. I would never think of seeing someone else if i were actually ‘dating’ someone, but i guess it just doesn’t feel right when I actually just ‘like’ someone either …….. huh, who knew? 😉
