Such a bad blogger.

I know, I know. So I've been telling myself I'd make a post for weeks now, and I'm just finally getting around to do so.
No one likes a dusty blog.
My original idea for this blog was that everything I'd post in it would be art related, but I haven't been feeling very inspired lately. And what is even worse than not feeling inspired is that I feel like a tool saying I don't feel inspired. Epic art fail.

So I've been thinking/talking with some of my more single friends about dating and have reached several conclusions I'd like to share.

1. Emoticons are deal-breakers. No if-and-or-but's about it. I"ll say it again. Emoticons are deal-breakers.
2. In the beginning at least, minimal textural contact. Meaning somewhere around the first, second and maybe even third date don't try to have a conversation though text messages. Texting to say you had a great time or to confirm plans is one thing, but you can't get to know someone through text messages, you can't read body language or hear their tone of voice through texts.
3. If you are dating someone older than you and you have a hard time with it, you're probably too young to be dating that person and should date someone your own age. While there is nothing wrong with dating someone older or younger than you as long as you connect and relate with that person and all the good stuff. I've got this friend... we'll call her Jane. Jane gave her number to a guy that is maybe two years younger than Jane. We'll call this young man Tarzan.Tarzan thought that Jane was "so old' and would send her texts saying things like "Hi, mom! Let's have a drink this weekend." Now, Tarzan being the misguided soul that he is probably thought the mom comment was cute. News flash, Tarzan, it's not. You might as well have thrown an emoticon in there.

I've also come to the conclusion that dating in the suburbs when you don't drive is virtually impossible. Yet another reason why I need to get the hell out of the suburbs before I lose my mind.
