Happy 100th post to me!

I just realized that my last post was my 100th.

I can't believe I've had 100 posts worth of things to say to virtual strangers but in honor of this auspicious occasion, I think I'll try my hand at a Q&A. If you have a question, ask me. I will answer.

Last night ended up being a huge bust which, for someone who does not take disappointment well, was well... disappointing. I was so ready to go out and have fun with friends and when people bailed and my night then became movies on cable TV, I was bummed. I hope everyone had a more interesting night than I did.

I was thinking about the date that I broke. I really did feel bad. Everyone's response to that is always "that's because you're so nice." Too nice, perhaps. But NY is teaching me how to be a little more mean. I'm a bit tired of dating. A lot of the dates I've been on this year have been blind and personally I think blind dating is a bit like being paired up in college with roommates you don't know: it has the potential to be awesome but rarely is. I don't know, my co-worker married a guy she met on a blind date. I'm constantly hearing success stories from online dating, but I guess it isn't my medium. The more I think about it the weirder my "deal breakers" are getting. Right now my thing is that I want a transplant, preferably one who is also from California. Of course I just want a nice guy. But I so often relate to fellow transplants. They just "get" me.

What are (or were) your deal breakers? Questions, anyone?

I'd rather go blind than on another blind date

Congrats on 100! I hate night like those, when friends pull out and then your are stuck!

My question what can someone usually find you going on a weekend in the city? Drinks? Dinner? Park?

Yay for 100 posts!

Sorry your weekend was such a bummer. :(

I have two questions:

1) What do you miss most about Cali? (People don't count!)


2) What brand of flip flops do you love the most?

Deal breaker for me would be a guy who's not a dog person. Love me - love my dog. Period.

Also, another deal breaker for me is sense of humor - though it takes longer to find out. If a guy can't make me laugh, like REALLY laugh, not gonna work. I'm pretty easily amused so that shouldn't be too difficult, right? haha but it did weed one guy i dated for a few months out.

anywayy, What are your deal breakers?

Congratulations on 100 posts!!!

I didn't really have any deal breakers that I could list. It's just when they happened, I knew. I went on so many dates from MDC, and I tried to force myself to give each guy 3 chances. BIG MISTAKE.

You know what though? Going on all of those dates helped me to see what icky guys were out there. This, in turn, helped me compromise what I was looking for. And that, in turn, made me appreciate TEN so very much when I found him.

Perhaps all of these dates are serving a purpose? I finally quit. I quit a few weeks before I started dating TEN, but I just had to take a breather. I think that's okay sometimes :)
