Dating disaster blogs
Determined not to pay to find love, I joined OKCupid also known as OKStupid. Pretty much it’s a place to find a partner with no job.
This was the site for me back in 2010, full of artistic types who were misfits, dreamers and do-gooders like me. But hey if you wanna be a sugar momma or sugar daddy, more power to you!
This guest post was originally postedon Amy's Bookish Life on Tuesday, May 10 as part of the #Lad Lit Blog Tour On Sunday, before taking my daughter over to the park to enjoy the rare bit of the London sunshine, I was watching a bit of Sunday Brunch (don’t judge me – I’m 38. ), and John Barrowman was talking about the series of YA books he writes with his sister, Carole.
At one point he was telling a story of how his sister called him up late one night in tears, crying that she simply couldn’t kill off one of the characters they had created because she had simply grown too attached.
(You can take the girl out of the country…) Once considered a stigma, nowadays it’s almost a necessity.
When you meet people in real life, you don’t have the list of their likes, dislikes, what they do for a living, political affiliations (a total dealbreaker), shirtless photos (douchebag territory) and group photos where it’s like playing Where’s Waldo to pick the correct person.
Also, he who was not his listed height which made him a liar from the get go (ladies, the equivalent is the selfie above the head to make you look smaller).
Date two, a cute nurse literally swept me off my feet dancing salsa and bachata on our second date.
That was a dating disaster as that guy turned out to be bipolar and schizophrenic.
I think everyone has a friend like Ollie – the sort of guy who would do anything for you, but is as thick as two short planks!
No matter what the situation the boys get themselves into, you can guarantee that Ollie will always say or do the wrong thing to make things even worse.
She was brilliant to write about, and secretly I think I’d like to date her too… The king of the chat-up lines with a small-man syndrome, Jack is the guy you probably warn your friends against dating, but can’t help but warm to once you get to know him.
He is the little devil that lives inside each and every man, even though we might not show it quite as much as Jack.
