14 May

Yes, that’s me. I just don’t see where I’m going wrong in my quest for a man. 😉

 

What happens when a woman creates an obviously fake OKCupid profile, declaring her love for cats and only cats?

ALWAYS Use Protection!

7 Apr

Today I present to you, my dear reader, a fun CatLady fact. On a random whim six months ago, I went to the optometrist. I hadn’t had my “Disney Eyes” checked since grade school, and was about to sign up for insurance and wondered if I should purchase vision coverage. (Oh Adulthood, you’re so fun!) I assumed I still had perfect vision, but when I was asked to read the letters on the wall with my left eye – my soul was crushed. I am now the proud owner of way more pairs of nerdy glasses than I’d ever be willing to admit. (Most women like shoes. I hate shoes. But give me ALL OF THE NERDY GLASSES!) This is necessary information for today’s online dating horror story. By the way, this post is NC-17.

As much as I would like to, I just can’t take Tinder seriously.

Rejection Letter

31 Mar

If you listen to any of my podcasts, you would be aware that I’ve been on a number of dates recently, and all but one was pretty terrible.  (And the good one ghosted me, for the record.)  However, one date in particular was worse than the rest in ways you could only listen about to understand, as I’m not going to re-live it again.  Check out the podcast(s).

This terrible date, after said date, texted me to ask how I thought the date went, because at very least he could use advice.  I was told that I needed to give an honest evaluation since it was asked for, so I typed up one of the most difficult things for me to write.   A friend read it and suggested I post it, as it really holds some good advice that many could use a refresher on.  So, here it is:

Life is Short, Bang a Stranger!

26 Mar

Aside from the constant reminder that you’re single, I think one of the problems with dating apps is that it seems to indicate that you are using the app, if you are so much as using your phone for anything else.  Last Friday, to try to soften the blow of not having a date, I went to the casino with my mom and brother.  We are skilled enough gamblers that we ended up being there for a long time before our money ran out.  I got home at 2:00AM on Saturday.   I set the alarm on my phone to not waste away my weekend, and “BEEP!”  New message from 26 year old looking for love:

“Hey looking for a late night fling”

CatLady – the Evil Hearted Elitist Age Snob

8 Mar

I sometimes get slack for not giving some guys a fair shot.   If you are one of  “those” types, I am going to suggest you not read this one. Not only was this guy too young for my comfort level, (He is 26.  Yes, I’m an age snob, I get it.)  but he also had absolutely ZERO information on his profile.  He had a very unflattering photo, and I think his grammar speaks for itself.

I’ve Been Waiting My Whole Life For You! – Part 2

17 Feb

More from the CatLady files of telling every match on Tinder that I’ve been waiting my whole life for them:

“I’ve been waiting my whole life for you!”

“For me?  And whys that?”

“Because I knew you would turn up eventually.”

“You’re kind of like a psychic!”

*

“I’ve been waiting my entire life for you!”

“Oh my god me too!”

“You’ve been waiting for yourself?  That’s weird.”

“It’s only weird if you make it.”

“I make everything weird.”

“Just the tip isn’t weird!”

*

“I’ve been waiting my whole life for you!”

“Are you a cuddler”

“Aren’t most women?”

“Do you prefer a well endowed man?”

*

“It’s YOU!  I’ve been waiting my whole life for you!!”

“Get in line hunny ’cause I’m the main act.”

“Oh.”

“You’re first in line though.  Hi, I’m Brian.  Nice to meet you.”

*

“I’ve been waiting my whole life for you!  Where have you been all my life!?”

“Around.  Moderately busy.  I do a lot of laundry.”

*

“I’ve been waiting my whole life for you!”

“This is usually where I bail”

*

“I’ve been waiting my entire life for you!”

“Oh?”

“What took you so long???”

“Traffic was crazy”

“Okay.  I forgive you.”

Don’t Do Lunch!!

13 Nov

Cat Sushi

When it comes to your first in-person meet-up, learn from my mistakes and DO NOT GO TO LUNCH.  (Or dinner.)  You really don’t know if you will have good chemistry with someone, and eating a meal is a big awkward event if you don’t click, or they’re weird.  I don’t know why I continue to make this same mistake over and over, but – I’m a sucker for sushi.  So, when Charming Tinder Fellow suggested we meet for a sushi lunch date, I broke my rule.

“Your Mother Will LOVE Me!”

2 Nov

I’d advise being a little skeptical when a man’s dating profile says that he’s a gentleman more than once, and that your mother will love him.

“you look adorable.  iid love to talk sometime”

I don’t know why I bothered.

“About what?”

“anything,  you.. what you like to do for fun, etc  im curious  to know more”

Everyone knows by now that I HATE the “what do you like to do for fun?” question.  This was also sent at a bad time, so I did honestly forget to respond.. but, I wasn’t interested anyway.   He followed up a few days later with a question mark.

Can’t Win For Losing

14 Sep

i quit

I think we all know by now that I take online dating with a grain of salt, and I certainly believe you should do the same.  Don’t set any expectations, and therefore you won’t be disappointed.

As all my single friends know, Tinder is an interesting beast (and seriously, don’t pay for it!)  in that most people you match with on Tinder never send a message.  What is that about?!  I’ve indirectly told you I find you nice to look at- you have nothing to lose!

About a week ago, I matched with a really attractive guy – and he sent a message!
