After telling you all for months I should write a blog, here it is.
I feel I have a disproportional amount of what-the-fuck moments in my life compared to the average person, so it is time I start sharing. I need to have my sanity validated by others because lately I have thought there must be something about my persona which is ripping fruitcakes, crackpots, and screwballs out of the woodwork and shoving them onto my path.
Don’t get me wrong. Part of me loves all the weird – a big, sopping wet, fuzzy part. I, however, have finally reached a point where I am analyzing my own involvement with the presence in my life. I am beginning to think the cosmos have aligned to torment me – placing me in situations where I play backgammon while carousel music plays in the background and a small Celtic man massages my ankles. (No, this hasn’t happen yet. Give it time though. Who knows what I’m doing next Tuesday.)
This blog will document my experiences resulting from my maintaining a profile on the online dating website, OkCupid, as well as the ‘real life’ dates I go on. (That’s what I call the dates with people who I don’t know before the date how shitty of music taste they have or that they could absolutely never live without their cell phone or Ayn Rand Reader.)
In the spirit of real talk (no, not the R. Kelly kind), this blog will also document my experiences resulting from not drinking alcohol anymore. Living in the United States as a twenty-some year old and identifying as a recovering alcoholic surprisingly will reward one with a number of curious conversations and bizarre or baffling interactions.
I’ll update this blog whenever something juicy happens which if the trend continues is probably on a weekly basis. If there’s one thing I’ve learned thus far from online dating, don’t have any expectations, hopes, prayers, or dreams – I’ll get to it when I do.
Let’s get weird y’all.
