The Dating Game

drollgirl, the dating game


I am still reeling from a date I had this weekend.  NOT GOOD.  Not good at all.  The above is only a SMALL BIT of the monologue that was delivered to me over the course of two hours.  SIGH.

He was nervous and wouldn't stop talking:) Not too attractive, is it?

Annabelle said...

Just wow.

Maybe being married isn't sooooo terrible.

Bless your heart.

Brandi said...

Hopefully you got a good dinner out of it.

Cheryl Ann said...

did you drink a lot of cocktails? i would have slammed a few to make it more interesting ;) i went on a date once with a guy who would not shut up about his sister - it was super creepy. he was seriously enamored with the chick. i'm sure lots of us feel your pain, lady!

Heidi said...

Gak! I do not miss those days! Better luck next time.

rach said...

What?? good lord- thats a huge ball of crazy! and how does he KNOW that trent reznor defecated on marilyn manson's chest? was he there? and asking about rent and telling you personal problems on the first day? UGH. I'm sorry your date was so lame!

internettherapy said...

I agree with Brandi, thank God for the free food! We're definitely going to need more information on this date however.

Trixie said...

what the hell! How do they keep finding you?

Lynn said...

Next time this happens, just throw up on the table and go home.

Prairie Chicken... said...

Throwing up on the table and going home is probably the most brilliant idea yet :)

Morgan said...

hahahahaha! this cracks me up. sorry it was so terrible but it makes for a good story right?!

Dancing Branflake said...

But just think of all the stories you have for a book. Way to sacrifice your sanity!

formerlyonlyamovie said...

Ack!!! We'll be needing more details, however. :-)

Lisa (aka sweetie) said...

bananas. said...

oh brother...not again.

i swear you meet the ODDEST men! hopefully you got a decent meal and SEVERAL alcoholic beverages out of the talker.

btw it sounds like my new boss. did this guy happen to be visiting from minnesota?

adrienzgirl said...

Where the hell do you find these losers anyway?

If your friends set you up with these guys, you might want to find better friends!

Mandy_Fish said...

Aw man, bad dates make for the best blog material!

*Creatively jealous*

E said...

Talkers are the worst. I'm exhausted just thinking about it. Feel for you :-/

Sarah Jean said...

Definitely been on a few of those. Guys who can't stop talking about their band or how smart they are or how they're "totally into 80s hair metal and why aren't you?!" Etc etc etc. I feel your pain, ma'am.

mermaid gallery said...

men are so desperate that sometimes they are stupid too...don't give up....there are a few signs of intelligent life out there....

Claire Kiefer said...

For the record, I love your dating stories.

Jen said...

My condolences! Where did you meet this guy?!

Jessica ( frellathon ) said...

Wow I'm sorry I hope you find that hot perfect guy really soon. Fall into his lap, he's out there somewhere.

Chocolate & Chants said...

I knew a guy like this. His name wasn't Sterling, was it? How come LA is full of those types of idiots?? Grrr. Well, at least I don't have to deal with that anymore!

Sister Wolf said...

Oh god. Could you at least tape this stuff? Then it will be art, instead of pain.

blueviolet said...

OH CRAP. One of those...

cerebral e said...

bwaha. "I miss sex": that's because you talk about Trent Reznor shitting.

十十f十 said...

oh dear. how are you going to keep him from bugging you for a 2nd date?

Haute World said...

The only difference between this and your date is probably that Pandas are way cuter and can get away with anything. How did you survive two hours of this?? How much booze did you have? ;-)

Ace said...

RUN! Run as fast as you can! Your cartoon cracks me up. I think you should have flipped him the L for loser sign early on about the time he said he liked big tits, and then called the date over when he said he didn't see his kids. Yikes!

Lorena said...

It is a calling.
I think you should become a therapist.

Kellie said...

Ahhhh! And this is why I don't miss dating. There are wackos out there. Sorry it was such a bad date. Try to think that at least you'll most likely have a better one next time. :)

Rita/Fighting Off Frumpy said...

Seriously? Poor you.

I don't miss dating, either.

Collins @ Life. Mostly Sweet. said...

unbelievable. dating is a pain in the ass!

SabinePsynopsis said...

You are a brave woman, and one day your courage will be rewarded, I'm sure. Do you think it's possible to say Bye after 5 minutes if the guy is obviously hopeless?

Phoenix said...

Holy shit, girl. If I ever break up with Benni I'm heading straight to a convent. Your bravery at dealing with these guys is astounding.

Lara said...

Oh you poor thing! What a self-centered moron!

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

Word vomit at it's worst. I definitely hope you got a good dinner out of it!

Kitty Stampede said...

Oh good Lord. makes for a hilarious little comic panel but i imagine it was excruciatingl.

Kristine said...

I'm so sorry! I feel so bad for you and for the poor dejected panda. She looks so broken. There are a lot of idiots swirling around. Incessant talkers are the worst, all I hear is the blah blah blah and all I can imagine is my hands closing in around their necks. Sorry you are are a crazy magnet but don't give up!

heisschic said...

his poor kids...

i'd like to hear about his first wife's brand of crazy though. that woman clearly had issues.

ugh.

Savvy Gal said...

eeek. one of those that we hope to forget.

Diana said...

eeep! maybe he was nervous!! you'll find the perfect guy for you. i'm sure he'll be complaining about the horrible dates he's had 'till he met you!! (sorry, i'm such an optimist, aren't i? vom!)

Kathryn said...

Sorry to hear about your bad date; sure are more frogs than princes that if for sure.

The asking about rent is as scary if not more than the Reznor/Manson reference, where you worry about if they are testing your sexual boundaries, because they may be wondering what their portion of the rent might be (and what they can talk you down to accepting if it is cheaper than what they are paying) because they think they are so wonderful that they can talk you into letting them move in after a few dates.

I think it is a numbers game and just have to keep trying and statistically if you have the endurance to keep trying, you finally reach the prize that is perfect fit.
