I have to tell you dating today compared to twenty-five years ago is so different. The last few years I have had so many changes it has made my head spin.
Illness, deaths, divorce, career changes, and yes dating, all which have been hard and scary but it is always how you look at things, is it a burden or a blessing? It’s up to you to choose how you see it.
I always chose to see the good and with dating, I chose to see the funny and then share with my friends. All of my friends said “Try online dating” Since we never had this years ago and I am not into the bar scene and have a full and busy life, I thought why not, another change in my life, let’s give it a shot.
Let’s start with Mr. Italian who asked me if I was Italian (what my name Francesca didn’t give that away?)
Then he asked if I was ever beaten with a spoon? (Was he really Italian? Because if he was, that was a requirement of an Italian mother) I said yes. Then he asked if I ever hit my girls with a wooden spoon (Did you not get the last part? I am now wondering if he was a little slow)
Here it comes but because I haven’t dated in 24 years, I don’t see it coming. He then asks if I could beat him with the wooden spoon! What?? Did he just write that to me? DELETE!
Next thing I learned is always read everything in a profile, take “Mr. Sneak things in his likes on his profile”
He had about 100 things he liked and I am not joking! I glanced through them and wrote him back, he asks did I read his profile?
I say yes, he says did you catch it? Catch what? I say.
The whip and chains part…. Really?? I can’t make this shit up!
No, I didn’t catch that part, after all, didn’t you get the previous part about me having a life and not having time to read 100 things someone likes to do, obviously the whips and chains weren’t in bold letters!
He goes on to say, he is just looking to have fun, I say then why is your profile saying you want a relationship? Why don’t you list that you’re a freak looking for a one night stand and not waste everyone’s time?
He goes on to tell me I am a prude and close-minded! Ha! Wait, wait…. listen to this… DELETE!!
My girlfriend started chatting with this guy when out of the blue he texts her, his ass!
Yes, a picture of his ass!
She doesn’t skip a beat and texts back, “Why are you sending me a picture of your ass? Does it look better than your face?”
He writes back lol, really?
Yup, you guessed it DELETE and go ahead guess his new name… Yup, you guessed that too Mr. Assman!
We have names and stories for all the guys that we have encountered, which we decided that we are going to write a book about it! We would love to hear your stories as I know in this age of technology there has to be plenty!
Look, don’t be a man-hater; don’t think there are no good men out there, that they are all freaks. Have fun with it, call your girlfriends to have a really good laugh in the morning on your way to work like I do!
Laughter is the best medicine; at least get something good out of it! Don’t take life so seriously, enjoy, laugh and then write a blog about it! Since I am the Taylor Swift of blogging!! Got to love where I get all my ideas from!
Gotta run, Mr. Dallas is texting me!
