I don't usually reblog people but I felt this entry would fit well with my blog. Plus I've been too sick lately to write anything of substance. For your reading pleasure, I submit to my readers this hilarious blog entry from Scholars and Rogues.
A couple friends and I were doing some pre-drinking on New Years Eve at my place before going out. We were listening/watching music videos on YouTube and drooling over some of the latest hot country stars out there (Eric Church= Yummy!!!) A male friend decided enough was enough and suggested we watch a video by one of his favorite comedians Jon Lajoie. We kind of rolled our eyes at him at first but within seconds of the video starting we were laughing our asses off!
I give you “Dating Service Commercial” by Jon Lajoie
Wow, in my 16+ years of on/off online dating I have never seen or heard of a message like that. Almost every line resounded a huge "WTF" in my head. Aside from totally creepy I believe this man suffers from a mental disorder, possibly Aspergers.
Totally reblogging this!!
Totally agree with this entry and felt the need to reblog.
I commented: "I reblogged this. I totally agree and so tired of the “hang out” vs “an actual date”. I can understand a first meeting being just a coffee…but why after meeting does it have to go straight to “watching a movie” instead of out on a date? Ugh I blame easy women making it harder for the rest of us."
It’s Friday, I’m sick..and of course, that means the assholes have decided today was the day to show their face clearly. Please note that since I’m sick that any annoyances may be a little over the top.
A couple days ago a man who lives almost two hours away messages me about one of my pictures. He asks if I’m wearing spandex. huh? Weird question. I look at his profile and pictures and find that he’s a avid cyclist and in all his pictures he is wearing spandex cyclist wear. Well, I guess the question isn’t as weird now. I reply telling him it’s not spandex and that was it. He then sends me a series of flattering messages telling me I have great legs and that I must work out a lot.
Well, you know what? In my experience if a man is going on about a woman’s body parts it’s not because he wants to have a chat with her. I was at work at the time of these messages and just stopped responding since my break was over.
Today, the man messages me again. I end up politely telling him that I’m not interested in anything long distance. He replies that he’s in my city two times a week and that it’s my loss. Umm what? I like confidence but I think this guy has a little too much for my liking. I should add that he listed his profession as “Emergency Medical” and does appear to be quite good looking. I’m thinking he’s not used to rejection. Sorry, no amount of good looks is going to change the price of gas.
I reply with “I’m sure you will find someone who can accommodate you.”
His reply, “This is why you’re single. Have a good one.”
Really…I’m single because I’m realistic? At this point I’m leaving Wal-Mart, my 4 year old son in tow with groceries and Kleenex in hand. I would have loved to have blasted this ass to the moon but the energy just wasn’t there.
“No need to be rude. This is why you’re single.” Block.
I swear if I didn’t delete my account all the time I would have the longest block list ever.
I’m single because I refuse to settle for an asshole, again.
I read this blog entry and I agree with everything that this woman has said. I also literally laughed out loud at her closing line. I definitely remember why I subscribe to her blog. :)
I’ve been biting my lip all day in hopes a handsome, brooding millionaire would take notice. I think I’m shit out of luck.
