The post about the crazy stuff I’ve signed up to do

a49c471483d7afc3c5d2566ae82a8ef6So, in an effort to get myself out of the house and doing fun things while meeting new people (hopefully guys), I signed up for the Outdoor Adventure Club, How About A Date Meetup, the Los Gatos Buddhists Meetup, the Hot Springs Adventure Group, and the San Francisco Homebrewers Guild, and the Bay Area Outdoor Adventures Group along with two new dating websites – How About We and How About A Date.

Whew!  I am literally exhausted trying to keep up with all the emails.  But I did manage to do the following:

  1.  Arrange for two men to take me on the same date AT DIFFERENT TIMES (glow-in-the-dark Frisbee on the beach plus a bonfire)
  2. Sign up for my Boudoir photography shoot with Celebrate Your Sexy (May 18th y’all, sorry you’re going to have to wait for the fruits of that labor)
  3. Go on a rainy hike through Elephant Seals at Ano Nuevo State Park
  4. Sign up to go ocean kayaking and whale watching in Santa Cruz on March 22nd
  5. Arrange for a Lebanese-American to take me to Arabian Nights in SF for dinner (fantastic, if you know my dad is Lebanese
  6. Take an Introduction to pole dancing class (remind me to buy some hot pants to wear)
  7. Sign up for a beer making class at workshop SF in SF (woo hoo… beer! Let me be your brewmistress!)

In retrospect, going on the same date with two different men is a little ballsy of me.  But hey, all’s fair in love and war and this is a bit of both, don’t you think?  I’m actually really looking forward to all of it with the exception of taking off my clothes in front of a camera which will capture it all.

But I’m already working on figuring out what four outfits to wear for it, and since you’re all so helpful, come back and vote as I suggest possible lingerie outfits (with pics) to wear for the photoshoot.

And wish me luck with all the other activities, I’m going to need it!

Is it bad to be too bored to date?

Is it bad to be too bored to date?  Honestly, if I have to go to Los Gatos for one more dinner date I may just fling myself into Vasona Lake and go for a long cold swim.  After my $1,000 date with Edward, no other date will come close.  Edward ruined me by setting the bar too high.  No more fancy dinners.

Honestly, I’d love for someone to just take me to the beach for a bonfire, or a sports game, or skating/falling at the ice skating rink.  That could be fun.  Hell, I’d even enjoying going to a park and flying a kite.

Anything but dinner in Los Gatos.  The waiters all know me there and think I’m slutty with all the dinner dates I have.

Little do they know.

Last night I was expecting to get three phone calls from three men I met online – Tony the Italian physical therapist, David the 6’6” pinot lover, and Anthony the camper.

So when Tony called, I naturally said, “Hello David.”

“Wrong horse,” he laughed.

Big oops!

Not the best way to start a conversation with someone new.  We had the standard getting-to-know-you conversation which was unremarkable and slightly boring.  I tried to get off the phone but he kept me on until I agreed to a date.

IN LOS GATOS.  At a restaurant OF MY CHOICE.

Any of this sounding familiar?

Welcome to the wonderful world of internet dating.  Pin a medal on me and call me “Genius.”
