I've started throwing around the idea of online dating again. Why? I don't know. It's not like I'm super desperate for a boyfriend, because I'm not. I actually really like being alone most of the time. If I could date myself, I probably would. I get along well with myself, I like the same things as myself, I've grown accustomed to my crazy, and, most importantly, the only shit I have to put up with is my own shit. I guess maybe I think I should have a boyfriend because that's something you should probably want to have at some point right? And also I'm bored. Maybe I just need to find some friends. But that would mean I would actually have to leave the house. Life is hard!
My first online dating experience was a cross between hilarious and creepy and neither of those were in a good way. So, rather than make a decision, I'm going to make a pros and cons list as a homage to my good friend T-Far.
Con: A lot of people I know have tried online dating with no success.
Pro: A good friend of mine recently started dating her online dude and is very happy.
Con: People decide to contact or not contact someone based on what they look like.
Pro: I can decide to contact or not contact someone based on what they look like.
Con: Having a guy send me pictures and scrolling down to reveal that he forgot to put on pants.
Pro: The freedom to reject douches and not having to do it to their face.
Con: It seems very anti-social.
Pro: I don't have to leave my house to meet people.
Con: Dates with morons.
Pro: Awesome blog material.
I guess the biggest pro would be that I might actually meet someone who I really like and that might mean that I would maybe get to have sex sometime again before I die. That would be cool. And I'm really not tied down here at all so, if I met someone who lived somewhere else, it wouldn't be that big of a deal. Hm. Ok. Something to think about.
What do you think blog friends?
