I am tired of the planning process for dating. Tired I tell you. Email flirting back and forth. More email flirting back and forth. Phone flirting. Text flirting. And that’s all before you meet face to face!
I need to sit down.
I endure all of this for the potential stomach butterfly on a first date. What I will not endure anymore, however, is a man that doesn’t plan. We women wear make-up, spend over $100 on push up bras, try on 15 different outfits and even shave our legs for a first date. As a man, all you have to do it plan. Pick a restaurant, pick a bar, pick a hiking trail. Just pick already and let us know.
I just traded my third email with a potential date on where we should meet, what time and what day. He is no longer, Mr. Potential Boyfriend or even Mr. Potential Anything. He has become an “TBD” in my outlook calendar – moving in a shuffle with the rest of the things I have to write down so I remember to pay attention to them. He is an outlook object.
Don’t be an object. Be a Man! Plan!
Since every blog has a generic “Hello world!” initial post, we, of course, had to have one too. (That, plus we were too lazy to remove it.)
Welcome to DatingThoughts.com, a resource created by several professionals in their early thirties who live in the San Francisco Bay Area, California. As it says on our About page:
Whenever we would get together with our friends for dinner, we found that the topic of dating was always the most interesting and popular to come up. We would always have funny or strange stories to tell, lessons learned, and, of course, lots theories on dating that we would develop as we negotiated the dating scene in our search for ”the one.” We also found that most us kept personal blogs or private journals where we often write about our thoughts on dating. Thus, the idea behind DatingThoughts.com was born: What if we created a blog-style website where we all would contribute these ‘thoughts’ so we can share them with each other and the world? At the very least, we thought it would be entertaining. But besides entertainment, we also thought DT.com could actually help provide some support and maybe advice for those who often find the dating process to be daunting and stressful.
More posts coming soon. Enjoy!
