I'm so tired now, and so thoroughly depressed. PLEASE, someone give me some words of encouragement. Tell me that there are still single, clean, thoughtful men out there.

Try not to despair. There are single, clean, thoughtful men out there. Some of them are even interested women.

And you haven't been stabbed or shot at yet, so you're not doing that badly [Smile]

No, I haven't, but...funny story!

About nine years ago, a date and I were in my car just driving around. It was somewhere around midnight when we crossed the border into Pennsylvania, just taking the winding valley roads. He seemed to get VERY nervous at one point and started asking me all these questions - "Did we just cross the state line? Did we? Don't you think we should go back?" and on and on until I found a spot to turn around and head back.

I asked him what his problem was and he said that crossing state lines was a violation of his parole. He wouldn't tell me what he had done and after a few minutes of riding in silence he looked over and said, "Are you scared of me? Because maybe it's not such a bad idea."

I dropped his butt off at the nearest Denny's and stayed home a lot for the next couple of years.

Pst! Let off the drunken part, Newf. Census is every five years, on years ending by 1 and 6 (we're right in the middle of one: May 16th - count yourself in!). So there was no Canadian Census in 2003.

Meh. I confused the year with the year the story was posted.

I've tried online dating through various means, but the pickin's were slim. There seemed to be very few profiles, and even fewer seemed interesting.

One day I called one of my friends up and I was going to invite him and some other people over to hang out. Well, he responded by inviting me to a party hosted by a mutual friend.

I did all of the regular party prep things that guys normally do (showering, putting on clothes, etc.) and went to the party intending to only have a good time (I just happen to like looking nice when I do that sort of thing). I knew about half the people there, so mingling was unusually easy. I actually started chatting with Fiance-to-Be with the initial impression, "This person seems like the party conversation-type, let's get our chat on," not "This girl looks single." I was honestly (and naively) just having a conversation and next thing you know, we're engaged.

Moral of the story: You have to take a somewhat Taoist apporoach to finding special someones. You need to be uninterested in a relationship in order to get yourself into one, either that or drunk.

Yikes!

I have an ex-girlfriend from some years back who'd be a great match for him. She's a very nice girl who holds long conversations with her teddy bear, sincerely believes the teddy bear is talking back to her and only occasionally went completely off the deep end claimed the teddy bear told her it had seen me cheating on her with another woman.

They could spend their days happily scaring the dickens out of each other and everyone around them [Smile]

Isolated horror stories aside, though, for everyone traumatic, life threatening date I've had, I've had half a dozen that were okay. Don't let this run of bad luck get to you you too much. Giving up isn't the answer.


...and for those who know me: Yes, I know full well just how hypocritcal that last statement is, but I'm trying to talk myself into believing it.

Wow, is this more common than I first thought? Is there a name for such a... realistical misconstruancy?

Alright now, that's the last straw, I'm calling the ass taxidermist to tell him to stop making hats in your size RIGHT NOW.

I had an ex who had conversations with her soft-toy dog. That's the same ex who taught me (the hard way) how to disarm an assailant armed with a knife.

Run away. Very fast.

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.

I did, 6 months and a week ago, and I never looked back.
