So, I’m throwing myself back into online dating a bit more this week. Moving to an entirely different part of town, I realize that there’s this huge, untapped source of new dates! I am approaching it a little differently this go-round (don’t I always say that?) because I am just being REALLY fucking honest. Not stupid-honest, but like… Here’s who I am, these are my flaws, these are my strengths, THIS is what I want.
However, this ——————->
This is not something I want. I can’t even fucking believe that this picture actually exists. I mean, he’s not an UNATTRACTIVE man, clearly he’s in decent physical shape… Has hair on his chest (which I love) and tattoos (though his are TERRIBLE). But GOD man!
Do you REALLLLLY think someone is going to look at this and get all twitter patted in their lady bits? And is that supposed to be YOU coming out of your own back? Really?
Maybe it’s a white trash thing? I just want to climb up on a box and shout over his fence into his backyard, “Hey! Bon Jovi! Mow your fucking grass!”
I got SIX emails on OkCupid today. I’m always amazed at how things ebb and flow with online dating. I’d really like to see the OkCupid Interns write up about that — is it because it’s getting cooler and people are in a mad-dash to get coupled up by winter? I don’t really know. The most interesting one that I got today is from a guy that lists himself as bisexual. My last email, in our little exchange, asked for some details regarding his view of bisexuality.
On my profile, I say, “Also, re: the bi thing… I don’t REALLY think I’m bi. My experience with women is limited to kissing and I really, really (read: REALLY) love men. Broad shoulders and scruffy faces and thick fingers with callouses and such… But I’m in a very… open space in my life right. Really working hard to stop having a closed mind at all and try things that I otherwise would not have tried. If we were to quantify this whole bi-thing for me, I think I’m probably about 30% bi and 70% straight.
One thing that I loathe is how, socially, bisexuality is nearly always related to non-monogamy or promiscuity. I am a fiercely monogamous person (Hello? Scorpio. True shit.) and when I fasten my heart and my mind to one person, that’s it… Until it’s not anymore. My bisexual journey does not include threesomes. It doesn’t include open-relationships or polyamory. I think you fall in love with people…”
So I’m really curious to get his reply. I will be sure to update you all here, dur.
