top five

So, apparently the writers of Forbes are not reading my blog (not surprising). Nor are they dating in DC (again, not surprising). They ranked DC 5th in the nation for city with the best single life. If this is true, I better start looking to relocate in one of the top 4 cities ...

the secret to men

I have finally discovered the secret to dating men:


Treat them as you would if you did not have interest in them for anything more than friends. Men want what they think they cannot have. This theory is the basis for that stupid rules book, but they take it much too far.

Keep it simple, like men. Don't call them back, don't reply to their emails and text messages, and don't accept their invitations. Obviously, you must do some of those things every so often to keep them interested, but it really takes about a half of a percent of effort. Problem is, women don't act like that -- they have guilt or feelings of obligations to return a call. Unless of course the woman is not that interested.

That's where I am currently. Not that interested and can't get the redhead or party boy to stop contacting me. Maybe I should start calling them several times a day, along with sending text and email messages. Then I will give them mushy cards, talk about marriage and kids, and talk about what we will do for New Years. I say less than one week of that behavior, and I would be hard-pressed to hear from either again. But that takes so much more effort ... although it would be great for entertainment value.

Please tell me I don't sound as much like a guy as I think I do!

now this is news

Science made a very profound discovery this week:

“[W]hen it comes to achieving orgasms, women are more affected by mood, self-esteem and other issues of the psyche than men.”

If you don’t believe me, here’s the link:

Hey, thanks for the news flash, brainchild! Where the hell have you people been? Obviously not having sex with a woman. You could have saved yourself a few million dollars of research and just picked up a copy of Cosmo. Even better yet, you could have just asked a few women. If it isn’t just those nerdy scientists that didn’t realize this, it isn’t any wonder so many women do not enjoy sex.

Get with the program people.

off topic

i know that this post has very little (if anything) to do with dating, but i want to remind everyone to donate to a charity asap. whether or not you donate to the red cross or other organization that is directly helping the Katrina victims, charities of all types are going to be affected by this disaster. just by pure numbers alone, i know that some of the victims statistically must have serious diseases and cancers, heart disease, HIV/AIDS, and other major health issues. The state of poverty, despair, and utter chaos is going to magnify the existing health problems and add many, many more. Not to mention that there are more poor, homeless, hungry, illiterate children and adults than anyone can imagine and this problem will have an impact on generations to come. People are dying everyday because not enough is being done. We can't all be there obviously, but PLEASE contribute in any way you can. Even $1 will help buy a baby food or water. If you absolutely cannot afford to give, please give blood or volunteer somewhere that is shipping supplies, etc.

The Post has a list of reputable charities, as does FEMA. Also, PetsMart is taking donations to care for the animals that have been abandoned or lost (thanks to ms J for that info). If you need a little incentive, United Airlines is offering 500 bonus miles to people who contribute to three chosen organizations. Pick one or 10, and do it TODAY.

I'll step off of my soapbox now ...
