Dating Update
Saturday, 2005 July 23 - 11:53 pm
Not that there's a whole lot going on, but it's better than writing about housework.

I wasn't going to write about dating today. I was going to write about how hot the weather was, and how I stayed inside all day and rewired light switches. But when I wrote that post, it was so dreadfully boring that I had to delete it. So I'm going to write a bit about my latest dating adventures, in the hopes that it will be slightly more interesting. Very slightly.

First, I'll say that the on-line dating world is noticeably more active lately. I wonder if it has anything to do with that show "Hooking Up"? Hmm.

By the way, I have to talk about Cynthia's date in last week's show. (Yeah, I watched it again. I'm so ashamed.) She had a date with an Asian guy, and she commented that if they had kids, they would be really really cute. It occurred to me, WHY HAVEN'T I BEEN EXPLOITING THIS ANGLE? Because it's true, you know: half-Asian kids are usually just scrumptiously adorable.

(I probably ought not use words like "scrumptiously" so much. In another scene in last week's show, a girl went on and on about how she thought her date was gay. She was impressed that he didn't get angry about it; I'm pretty sure I would have. I've realized, it's not so much about being accused of being gay... I think I would be offended at the accusation that I'm misrepresenting myself, or that I don't know myself well enough to know my own sexuality. I've been trying to think of something similarly offensive that a man might say to a woman... perhaps something along the lines of, "I think you're the sort of woman who's always trying to act like a man." Is that something you'd want to hear on a first date?)

Dating for me has been hit-or-miss lately. Up until a couple of weeks ago, the on-line dating scene was really dead. I wrote to a few people, a few people wrote to me, but nothing really panned out. I did meet some people in real life, through the "normal" channels, but all those opportunities fizzled too. I think it would have been better if there had been some spectacularly bad dates or bizarre women, because at least I would have had something to blog about. But no, all my dates lately have been just "meh". Nice girls, just no "chemistry".

But the next girl in the queue might be promising. We'll call her VetGirl (because she's studying to be a veterinarian, not because she fought in Vietnam or anything like that). She mentioned that if she doesn't get the exact job she wanted, she might have to find a job at a poultry farm. I made her promise me that if she did that, she would ask her employer, "Do the chickens have large talons?" I have to see her at least long enough to witness that. And videotape it.

My aunt (100% German) married a fellow from Taiwan. They had 2 daughters. One is drop dead gorgeous, the other is just alright. As a child I would tell people I had "Chinese cousins". No one ever believed me as I am the whitest white boy. Now it seems slight racist to refer to them that way. Though I'm not quite sure what the proper term is.

my 2nd cousin married a japanese woman and their kids were cute as kids but right now they're in the akward teenage stage and let me tell ya, they're not so cute anymore.

I did once admit that I like dating asain guys b/c I love asain babies, much cheaper than flying to china to get one.
