Online Dating in the DMV...Trophy Dating

Online Dating

The Guy contacted me last night. The Guy all your girlfriends hate. The one you don't mention to the Girlfriends if he does contact you- because even the slightest hint there is contact will send them into lectures and interventions for you not to get back together.

I finally had to explain to The Guy after hearing about the fifth girl that he dated recently had implants and the ex-NFL cheerleader he lived with- that he obviously dates eye candy...which I am not. And I date intellectually smart men...which he is not. Tells me he has street smarts though to compensate- although he never read a book and isn't sure whether he finished high school. Runs a successful business and spends half his day at the country club- golf, tennis, and who knows what else with his very best female friends.

Did I mention he followed the Grateful Dead for three years and some habits die hard? He tastes bad- like cigarettes and illegal substances- well illegal in some states and other states they are opening up stores to sell it. He asks why I am bringing pineapple juice over all the time. And I wonder why the man forgets every time we make a date- isn't exactly the most reliable on the making plans front. Yeah this is going to work well with a girl who completed boot camp and has lists for her lists- color coded.

Our last contact prior to this was when he asked me to come over to watch Duck Dynasty- I had passed because watching the show and having the munchies wasn't my idea of a hot Tuesday night. When ILOVEMAKONNEN released his song, Club Going Up On A Tuesday, I don't think that is the club he had in mind which involves slim jims and camo. He indicated if I didn't come over he would call #2 and she would come over in my stead. Emotional blackmail. How did the stoner figure out how to be such a mindblower? Score one for him. I was pretty impressed.


Moral of this story: men who "brag" about their conquests usually are the models, cheerleaders, beauty queens...whereas women who "brag" about their conquests do so over lawyers, doctors, and professional men. Hopefully this isn't a throwback to childhood when little girls are encouraged to marry well- and little boys see Barbie on toy shelves. My Barbie was an astronaut- yes her suit was pink- but she wore awesome silver boots as she walked on the moon.
