Dating: What’s your story?

Do you ever get tired of mixing and mingling? You still want to be someone really great but the thought of answering the same questions over and over again makes you twitchy. I just want to walk up to Mr. Wonderful and hand him my “book” so he can get a condensed version of who I am, what my flaws are, and what I bring to the table.

I know, this is the ultra lazy approach to dating. It’s supposed to be fun and exciting. You are supposed to be filled with anticipation and blah blah blah. Some days you just don’t feel it. That is a classic sign that you are stuck in a dating rut!

If you feel bored with dating, chances are you are boring your dates to tears too. It’s not always their issue, though. Sometimes, it’s you. If you don’t consider yourself a fun and interesting person to get to know, your date will agree wholeheartedly.

If you feel yourself slipping into the Most Uninteresting Man/Woman in the World, take a break from dating and focus on other things. Trust me, it’s good to get a refresher course on how awesome you are. Then you can attract people who find you and your story interesting.

Have you ever been with someone who had a fascinating story? Did they intrigue you with their life adventures or fascinating personality? Has anyone ever told you that you had a really interesting life?

When you meet someone you click with, what do you usually tell them about who you are?

P.S. Any tips on how to get out of a dating rut?

Jake – they are so jaded with the Love Experience that it doesn’t matter what u say to them bitties..

You better stop it right now…lol Not speaking has nothing to do with being jaded. We’re telling you the truth. Most times I’m like ngga please move on past me…nothing to do with my experience. Just hoping he’ll not we’re not about to create another one :evil:

Those weddings are a fool, put your suit on, shine your shoes, and cast your net, the fish bite extra hard at weddings…The fantasy is already in the background

Told ya!!!! See, shuffle, the slide and getting laid. Men attending (married or not) knows believes it’s happening later on!! Told ya!!!!!!!!!

And I’m certain that if I don’t respond to a greeting, he can just accost the next attractive chick that he knows absolutely nothing about when she walks by.

Because I promise, if he stands there long enough, another one is coming.

Funny y’all should be having this talk today… I have to be in a wedding this weekend and I asked my boy ( the grrom) to make sure that I got paired up with a certain member of the Bridal party….Might not happen though cause she is a bit taller than me and I don’t want to look like she is walking ME down the isle….At any rate, its all good cause I asked around and found out what she drinks and you can best believe I am going to make sure she has PLENTY of it at the reception…. :)

Celisea…okay, you are right, every chick aint bad news, neither is every man, but more times than not, ladies are not open to conversing with some stranger…the point is to no longer be a stranger at the end; but if one won’t give those 2minutes, one will never know.

And we are telling the absolute truth about the weddings, u all have seen the Heineken commercial when dude dances with Grandma, and the chick gets puppy-eyed…the advertising team didn’t think it up by themselves…I promise you that it is the easiest place to meet someone for these reasons….

1. You are connected to someone at the wedding, and she is too, she can research u immediately
2. The mutual connection eases the awkwardness of meeting someone new (built in topic, so who are you here for?)
3. There is dancing (booze), simulated sex acts,(gettin the garter, a real dude gonna turn it nasty)
4. As previously stated….She is already in Fantasyland, emotionally vulnerable, and ready for some love her gotdayum self.

THIS ALL EQUALS AN EASY SCORE

Yeah, Leggs, I would think that he wouldn’t want to deal with the type of woman that would get drunk enough for her judgement to be impaired and cause her to do something she wouldn’t normally do.

And he wonders why certain chicks only give him attention after they see his car…the same chicks that would get drunk and give up the nanny…

OMGosh dude…let folks keep talking and the truth will surface. First it was height, then (telling folks…aka leading with wallet) the pockets were right. Now….getting her lushed up is a sure fire way of getting ass. I tell ya…NGGAS

Ya’ll are making it seem like either you’re mean mugging or you got the kool aid grin. A woman can NOT smile and still look very approachable. By the same token a woman can NOT smile and look very unapproachable. It’s all in the demeanor and body language. It’s neither here nor there to me though. A man never got anything worth having by sitting back in the cut talking himself out of approaching like “naw, she looks like she’s in deep thought, so she probably doesn’t want me to approach.” If I want a shot, I take a shot. Only two things can happen…she can be receptive, or she can shoot me down. Not striking out because you never went up to bat doesn’t make you a good player.

Ok ladies you can call it what you will…. we are going to a wedding….There is a cute lady that I would like to “rabbit dance” with….She happens to like Patron…..There is an open bar, so If she happens to want another drink between doing “The Wobble” and ” The Macarena” then who am I to deny her??? And if she happens to feel all festive and game to cut loose while we are there, I would be forced to return my man card if I did not beat that thing like a rented mule….. :)

I have not dated in many years, mostly because I am at the age where practically all the women I know are either married or living with someone. I am also disabled. I don’t know if this is a general rule, but it’s been my experience that about 95% of the women that I have dated want to be either my best friend, or want a sisterly relationship. So I usually never get beyond a second date with them. I don’t know if this has anything to do with my disability or not (I would hope that it doesn’t, but I a afraid that many people still believe the old stereotype that disabled people can’t have sex, which, BTW is not necessarily true).

BTW, I am shorter than usual, because of my disability, so I suppose all you people who responded to the ‘height’ blog and preferred tall people probably wouldn’t be interested in dating a person my height. I am not a midget, but I am shorter than usual.
