Blog Karma

You'll remember that a few weeks ago I met up with Katie from Date Me, DC! While we lounged by the pool (that we sneaked into), she told me that she had an anonymous donor footing her match.com bill--and that the person found her blog through my blog. Sweet! And where the hell is my cash? 

Then, I found out via Facebook that Katie got a date with a hot British man. And how did she get this date, you ask? Through my blog! The guy saw me on Twitter, read my blog, found her blog, and then tracked her down to ask her out. Of course she is way funnier than me and the topic of her blog is more entertaining and way less depressing than mine can be. But still, I'm fun, too! I swear! Especially when I'm not mopey. Which I'm working on like a champ.

So, I'm all "Go Katie!" and then I think, "Good things gotta be coming my way soon." So, dear blog world, if you'd like to send me cash, beautiful boys, or lavish other lovely things on me, I'm completely ready to accept them.  And if you have suggestions about how to make my blog better for attracting such awesomeness, let me know.

  1. That is insane! The only single guy that I can think of off the top of my head in my ex and I wouldn't let him near you. He is a great guy, don't get me wrong, but a horrible boyfriend!

  2. Krysten--haha, I'll pass. :-)

    Bry-Guy--I'd love one! Oh, and I fixed my bike.

  3. Unfortunately, we got a little too excited a little too early about the Brit. He asked for a picture, and when I sent him one he never wrote back.

    Not pretty enough, I guess! wah wah wah.

  4. How rude and superficial!! Good to be rid of him! Don't take it seriously DateMeDC. This guy is not worth your time!

    hey Non-Stu...how did your "practice date" go last night???

  5. Felisha, I totally agree. As for the practice date (and you just totally outed me!), it didn't happen, mostly b/c after talking on the phone, I got the creeps. Yikes. But tomorrow I'm spending the day with a Brazilian boy named Daniel. Wahoo!

  6. Tudo bem? (Portuguese for 'how are you?')

  7. Bry-Guy--thanks. :-) This is a blind date of sorts. The couple I stayed with in Richmond last weekend want me to meet him, so they'll be tagging along. So, it'll be like a supervised blind date. How very 19th century.

    Oddly enough, my brother is dating a Brazilian woman right now.

  8. Random people on the internet I've never even met do have the ability to hurt my feelings, but I'll brush it off. Ain't no thang. Wish my outsides matched the awesomeness of my insides, though.

    Good luck with the Brazilian! I've got some single fellow menfriends if you want a few other setups as well.

  9. Awesomeness will come in it's own time. As will a new boyfriend. You just broke up, for heaven's sakes! Stop trying to force the process. And by that I mean trying to figure out how to meet someone. You don't need to meet anyone right now. Let life happen as it's supposed to. You're nowhere near ready for another relationship. Until you've completely healed...or at least farther along in it...you can't possibly be in the right head space to be with someone else. Don't be a relationship hopper. Which it doesn't sound like you are, but you get my drift. YOu're a young, single person in a city full of fabulous young, single people. When the student is ready, the teacher appears. Replacing SCL isn't going to get you over him, though many do just that. All it does is interrupt the mourning period, making you feel like you're over it, when there's no way you could possibly be. Give yourself some time. The last time he ended it, you were signing up on a dating site, etc. right away, weren't you? YOu're not desperate, Non-Student. Or if you are, guys can smell that from a mile away. Just mourn for awhile (in a healthy way...not just obsessing), and trust that the universe will send you what you need eventually.

  10. Just giving you a heads up. Some people use other people as a way to get over someone. Just my two cents for you, for what it's worth. Sounds like you're hanging in there and right where you're supposed to be right now. One day you will look back on this and it won't even hurt anymore, I promise.
