So I’m currently on date number 41 and I have two weeks until the wedding the Spain. I may or may not have found a date. You’ll have to watch the new episodes in July to find out. Sorry! Dating all these men has taught me a lot about dating but I thought I’d review the lessons I learned from the first guy I met on this earth.
- Never Date A Guy Who Doesn’t Take Care of His Shoes
Basically a guy with terrible foot support will never go places. I remember dating a guy who wore these ratty Sketchers and we went out after dinner one night and tried to get into this lounge to meet friends and the door guy looked at my guy’s feet and told us to go to Kenneth Cole or go home.
- Never Chase Boys
I’m the oldest of four and have a younger brother. One day these stupid boys were picking on him so I threatened to beat them up. One hit me and ran away, so of course I ran after the lil jerk. Unfortunately my father just saw me chasing the kid. So during dinner I he went on and on about how I should never ever ever chase a boy. “Boys don’t appreciate being caught. They appreciate things they catch.”
- Be His Friend First
I didn’t really date in high school, I went to boarding school and relationships got super stressful when you’re sixteen and have to live with your boyfriend. So when I got to college I pretty much fell in love with any guy with curly lashes and a car to take me off campus. After receiving my fourth call about a new boyfriend, my father had had enough. ‘Why don’t you try getting to know these boys before giving them the honor of being your boyfriend. They should earn it by being a good friend.”
- Never Date A Man Who Cares To Much About Money
Don’t get him wrong. He wanted me to be with someone successful. But also someone who was smart enough to realize the money wasn’t everything.
- He Should Love Your Mind
You shouldn’t date a guy who simply wants you for your looks. If his love is tied to your looks you have a problem because looks fade.
Happy Father’s Day!
What if you already knew the last person you’d ever sleep with? Just finished watching Sex and Death 101. Here’s a summary from Wikipedia:
Roderick Blank (Simon Baker) is a successful young businessman with a great job as an executive for ‘Swallows’, a high end fast food restaurant chain, and a beautiful fiancée, Fiona Wormwood (Julie Bowen). On the day of his bachelor party, he is e-mailed a list of all the women he has slept with. Strangely, while the list has 101 names, his fiancée is only number 29. He assumes the list is a prank, courtesy of his best friends Zack (Neil Flynn) and Lester (Dash Mihok) – until he meets number 30, Carlotta Valdez, who is the stripper at his bachelor party. After sleeping with Carlotta, he realizes the list does, in fact, comprise all of his sexual partners, both past and future.
Roderick cancels his upcoming wedding and begins to sequentially bed all the people on the list. Although he makes a connection with some of the women, he is unable to settle down and is compelled to continue until he has crossed all names off the list.
You would think this would be a gift; to know your entire sexual history upfront. But it’s more like a curse. He doesn’t simply plow through the women, he grows attached, he mourns each ending even though he knew it would end. He doesn’t get to experience the sense of hope you get when starting a relationship. Which really sucks. His destiny was out of his control.
Going through 30 dates with no real serious contender has made me feel a bit hopeless. Like Roderick, I’m just making my way down my list. No more false sense of hope. Just want to get to the finish line at this point. I’m more psyched to find new date dresses and try new eateries at this point. I’m thinking of shifting the focus on the show. I’ve learned a lot and I can definitely share some tips I got from the guys. All very nice guys by the way. It was just that none of them has been the guy for me.

Taking a lot of cold showers these days.
Less snow on the ground and less layers between you and the opposite sex. This is great if you’re ready to trade cabin fever with Spring fever. But if you want to avoid high temperature situations like me then I suggest that you follow these preventative measures.
It’s Friday! Which means there are sure to be a number of first dates scheduled for tonight. Here are 5 tips you should follow to have the perfect first kiss.
This may sound strange but I’ve learned a lot about love and dating from The Following this season. (more…)
