Sounds like a recipe for disaster…

21 Mar

Before I give you the message-  I want to point out that this is only what crossed my mind – and it isn’t necessarily a “bad” message.   But it makes me go “Hmm..”

“hello my name is brian. I’m looking for someone that can go out and have a good time but is ok with a saturday night in. I’m not really a big partier. I’m really outgoing but would rather hang out with a few friends than go out bar hopping. I’m looking for someone to come home to after work, make dinner, and hang out on the couch. On the weekends, go out to target and the grocery store. Couple times a month go out to a concert or just out to dinner. I’m not looking for someone that wants to go out and drink ever friday night but can still go out and party every once and while. If that sounds like you message me back.”

First of all –  Brian is a very slender guy.   Very.   I feel that information is important.

So  – let’s dissect, shall we?

“I’m looking for someone that can go out and have a good time but is ok with a saturday night in”  —   Brian – that’s just on about EVERY girls’ online dating profile.

“I’m looking for someone to come home to after work, make dinner, and hang out on the couch. On the weekends, go out to target and the grocery store. Couple times a month go out to a concert or just out to dinner.”    —  Now,  while I appreciate that Brian is a very trim young man –  does he not realize that staying in, hanging out on the couch, eating dinner and going out to dinner on “date night” does NOT do wonders for a female’s metabolism?

I try very hard to be an active person.  I don’t necessarily enjoy it, but it’s important, as I like my clothes to fit.   The thought of sitting all day at my desk job, to go home, eat and do nothing on the couch scares me.   I know how that works out for me in the long run.   I get dumped for gaining weight.. when it would totally not be my fault.

Again –  it’s not that Brian sent a “bad” message, per say..   But, I think he should re-evaluate.   (Not to mention my hate for it because it’s a form letter.)
