READ AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!
(See the post below this one for a saner, calmer post)
Okay, say you are a man. Say you possibly are interested in a woman. Say you have a date with that woman, say...on Saturday night. And it goes really well. And that woman thinks you might, just might, be interested in a permanent relationship, not just one based on screwing....
Now pretend that you call that woman a few days later. And the two of you are talking and she casually asks you if you would like to do something that evening, say tonight after work.
Is your answer:
A. Sorry, I can't tonight....how about another night this week?
B. I can't tonight...I have to wash my uniforms and later get on Match.com and e-mail 5 or 6 women, because if I don't e-mail so many women a week, I won't get my 6 months free...not that I'm really that interested, I just want my 6 months free......? Maybe another night this week if I don't work overtime.....
Yes, that's right, ladies and gentlemen. Can you guess by the title which one was Sam's response to me earlier today?
I hate f-ing men. All of them.
I am so done with dating.
Maybe I'm just absolutely not worth dating and no g-damn man has the balls to tell me so. Maybe I'll just start hunting up f-buddies on Craigslist and get my jollies that way. I am so f-ing tired of trying.
I hate dating.
ABSOLUTELY FUCKING HATE IT!!!!
PS. My response to his was stunned silence and then to politely tell him I had to go, followed by about a half hour of tears. I have no idea if he has any idea how badly he's blown it.
