Taking a Break

After Round 2 with this guy, I think it might be time to take a break from dating. Or at least of the online variety.

Ugh. The date was awful. I just wanted to go home. I wanted to sit in front of my tv, watch bad television, and pop popcorn.

He paid for dinner, but when it came to the movie, he said, "Why don't you pick up the tab on this?" This is the second date people. Call my old-fashioned, and I don't mind paying for a date every once in while with someone that I'm serious with, but come on!

Not only that, but he made it clear last night that he is ready to settle down and have kids.


In other news, I'm not over Sixty yet. I know, I know, I know. I thought I could do it and just move on, but I just think about him too much. I know I loved him, and that's hard for me to do with someone. It's just hard to understand that the love just wasn't reciprocated.

Oh yeah. Did I not tell you that?

He informed me that he couldn't love me and could never marry me, so why waste both of our times?

I give up. I'm becoming a nun.

CAN'T LOVE YOU?! ARE YOU SERIOUS! He's gay, I called it when you broke up.

I'm sooo confuzzled about the Sixty situation. I read through the archives, and could have sworn I read he did tell you he loved you, yadda yadda yadda. So he all of a sudden changed his mind? And he was all like, "I don't love you and never will, so buh-bye"? That's kinda asshole-y. There are more tactful ways of saying the same things!

Where the eff do you find these tards? Sandra you've got to cut this internet dating shizz out... let me try to find you nice guy.... maybe even a pot smoker.. hehehehe

Starslate: If he's gay, then I seriously am becoming a nun.

Girl By the Sea: You, too? And no. He never said "I love you." He said everything but. But no loves.

Okie: Yes. And bring friends to gang up on him, dammit.

Jo: I think it was more along the lines of he didn't love me, and he couldn't marry me, but same diff. He has issues.

(Did I mention that I'm the longest relationship he had ever been in? And it was three months, people. Three months. Retard.)

Anon: I agree. Internet dating just isn't for me, I guess. I thought giving it a try might open new doors for me dating-wise, and with Sixty I guess it did. But look where the heck that ended up. Oh well.

I dated a pot smoker - or rather, a reformed one.

And that puts me in the same boat as Sandra - single because my feelings were stronger than his.

I say 'nay' to Internet dating and 'yay' to focusing on you.

That's what I'm doing this summer and am SO much happier.

Hmm, well him asking you to pay was a bit ballsy but even on a first date I usually offer to pick up the cheaper portion of a two activity date. If it were dinner & a movie I would pay for movie tix. Maybe I shouldn't.

sandradee, you need to take internet dating less seriously. instead of looking for a man, look for some entertainment while you search for a man.

and if she pays for a portion of the date, it's nice.
i don't want to get into a debate about chivalry and equality, but we are in the new millenium.
and i always assume that i'm paying.

Don't give up!

Men are seriously retarded. I was going to be all PC and say "mentaly challenged", but that just doesn't impart what I was trying to say. Retarded and that's that.

Sixty is an idiot and clearly has his own issues because he can't admit that he totally does love you. Ass.

At 7:45 PM, Blogger Adam said...

I'm very retarded, but even I know that saying "Hey, its your turn to pay" is just foolish...unless ole Sandra Dee is such a bad date that he just asked as a way to get rid of you!

I doubt it, but hey, who doesn't enjoy a good conspiracy theory?

I'll bring the baseball bat if Okie brings the chain! We'll do it old school.

Brown Eyed Girlie: I have currently been focusing a lot of attention on me, and I say "yay" to that, too! :) P.S. A "reformed pot smoker"?! Too funny!

Rachel: I'm sure a lot of guys appreciate that! I guess I'm just old fashioned. However, I always offer to pay, especially with dates that aren't going well. Whatevs.

Dave: Maybe you're right about my approach to internet dating, but entertainment is something I can get from my friends and coworkers. I certainly don't need a dude for that! :)

NotCarrie: Thanks for the encouragement! I was ready to sign my paperwork for the convent.

Amber: You're so funny! And yes, Sixty has issues. I thought he and I could be good friends, but after I've let it all sink in, I'm not sure that I need that kind of drama in my life.

Adam: That's exactly what I thought immediately after he said it! Who knows, but I think the next-day voicemail of him telling me he wanted to take me out again might be an indication otherwise. Who knows. And yes, round up Okie and get 'er done.

I need to catch up on your site of course, but I stopped by to thank you for the heads up on Porch Time's blog for the Single Male Bloggers list. He is now added. Thanks!
