Embarrassingly enough, I joined a dating app (which I’ve written about before). So far, it’s slim pickins. It even got to the point that the app stopped suggesting people because I had literally “X”d through almost 99%. I’ve gotten hundreds of likes from people who clearly didn’t read my profile. They see my pictures and jump on the opportunity and hope against all odds that I’ll “heart” them back or even say hello. I rarely do.
Saw a profile of someone that liked me, they were attractive, their profile was interesting, so I liked back. Crickets for over a month and then out of the blue yesterday he joked that he hoped I liked younger men. I typically do not. I don’t have the patience for the antics but he seemed relatively sane so I replied that I was more concerned that he liked “older ladies”… yes, not women, ladies. Trying to send my own message.
His reply was “are you at all interested in a purely sexual relationship. I don’t expect anything from you. I’m here to please. I’m very good with my tongue.”
DOES THIS SHIT WORK??? Umm… tempting… but one night stands and random sex with guys is not how I work at all. Of course, my options these days are extremely limited/non-existent, but I just can’t bring myself to be one of those people.
This wasn’t the first time, this weekend, that a scenario like this presented itself.
Friday night I went out with my neighbors to have dinner and drinks and laugh at some Karaoke… When karaoke started, this very attractive man “V” sang a Prince song. He sang it very well… I was feelin it… He sang a few songs and I loved all of them. He sat down to talk with all of us and eventually asked me to speak alone. I was flattered. We exchanged pleasantries for a few minutes and BAM he hits me with “Hey, I have a room at the Hyatt downtown, you should come hang!” I politely explained that “I’m not that kind of lady”… he claims to have meant no “intentions” and that he thought I was cool and wanted to hang out. Umm… this isn’t my first day on the planet. We could hang out just fine where we were if that is what he wanted. He promptly disappeared.
This is exactly why I’m avoiding the whole dating scene. I am too old fashioned for today’s scene. I still believe in courting, flowers, opening doors, etc etc. I want romance. Not some mystery trying to figure out someone’s last name after being ravished for 20 minutes.
