Why I Bother

8:48 AM Edit This 16 Comments »
Oh Internet. Why I even bother with this dating stuff, I don't even know. Crushed. Once again. He's "not ready to date." according to the e-mail I received this morning.

And I cried for a few minutes, and I'm still sad. But at least I think I know this time it's not about me.

At least this guy is owning his issues. Vast improvement.

The ups and downs of dating. Hang in there cutie, there's someone out there for you!

Oh Kate. I'm sorry to hear that. But you're right. It's not you...it's him.

Hang in there.

Ugh. At least he didn't waste too much of your time. Grab a pedicure and a glass of wine... NEXT!

Don't you know this is a conservative state? Maybe you need to trim your wick of being a flaming liberal--you'd also be much happier if you would cut out screwing around. If you are just dating for sex, keep at it. If you are actually looking for something more, keep your belt on.

You have to be REALLY glad that you didn't sleep with him!

Kate said...

Okay, Ms. Anonymous. You'd know that I did in fact, keep my belt on if you'd read enough. Don't comment if you're not woman enough to state your name.

Piggy Souix is really who you need to watch out for. Guys will come and go. Nature of the beast. Those A-holes will NEVER go away.

At least he had the decency to own up to where he is emotionally and save you pain later on. You never know, my dear, what lies around the next corner.

Kristen said...

Wait.

WHAT?

At least he let you know. I'm sorry.

Oh Kate...he sucks.

But I gave you a little something on my blog!

DUDE. If he "wasn't ready to date," then he shouldn't have a profile on an ONLINE DATING SITE. You tell him that the Canary says to go take a flying you-know-what. And Peggy Sioux? Leave my Katie alone. That was mean-sprited and uncalled for.

MsDarkstar said...

Sorry about the guy, sweetie.

And I'm really ticked that people feel they have the right to leave snarky comments in your blog (anonymously, even!)

I'm sorry this happened. But I'm glad you realize it's not you. At least he didn't invent some shortcoming to dress you in rather than wear his own.

Peggy Sioux is funny. I hope she got the attention she desperately sought with her idiotic comment.

Dingo said...

I'm sorry you got hurt. No, it's not you. It's him. I echo the others when I tell you that I'm glad you realize that.

Poor, poor, dried up ol' Piggy Sioux. Honey, it sounds as if your belt is on a bit too tight. Let some air in, baby, and maybe you won't be such a sour puss-y.

Whew you dodged a bullet. Anybody who goes on a dating site and runs this little come close get away number, is contagious.
