“What’s a Date?” Part 2

Online datingSo as I mentioned in Part 1 of this post, I would dive further into how technology has changed the dating scene forever.  I will admit that I know both failures as well as success stories, from each of the technologies I’ll list below.  So to say if they work or not, I do not know, all I know is dating ain’t what it used to be.  So get your tablets ready for downloading, log onto your favorite dating site, and prepare yourself to get sucked into the world of digital, as taking a girl out on the town means little if you look like a whore on Facebook.

I want to begin by stating that not everyone uses these means of dating.  I know plenty of people who will still meet someone out at a party, out at a bar, through friends at home or at school, and develop very deep and meaningful relationship.  But that doesn’t mean that sites like the very seclusive “christianmingle” don’t exist.  But the true question is do they work.  I’ll break down my thoughts on each of the three main game changers that I see that has altered the life of dating.

Derek Zoolander was right

SnobSome weeks I feel like I have nothing to write about and others I feel like I have so many thought I wouldn’t need a new post every day.  This is one of those weeks.  Of course I’ll be in Dallas most of the week for work but do not fear my friends I have already lined up a post to be sent out later this week.  So to begin I my week like I always do I was reading some other people’s blogs about their lives and what they were talking about in the past week.  I came across one post called :”The Road To Riches: Count Me Out” in which the blogger (Sarah) explains how she hates those uppity folks that spend mountains of cash on themselves for ugly accessories.  I love her posts and love what she writes about so I would defiantly check her out but here’s my little personal story about all this “name-brand hoo honkey”.

“What’s a date?” Part 1

MilkshakesDating over the years has really changed.  My parents certainly did not go through the experiences that I’ve been going through the past couple of years.  With being gay as the new black, people are coming out all the time.  It’s definitely a good thing that people are becoming more open and comfortable with who they are but it creates an aura of needed sex that I don’t think we have seen since the 60s.  With the introduction of social media, the constant use of cell phones, and the ability to connect with just about anyone from any part of the globe, there is certainly a level of privacy and secrecy that every person now carries with them.  I hear people say, everyone in a relationship always wants to be single, but everyone single always wants a relationship.  The desire for a relationship has never changed, it’s the methods that we go about finding it that has.

I’m An Addict

Love AddictionYou’ve been dating someone for a few weeks now and it’s time to figure out if you should hit it or quit it.  When is the right time to finally commit and when does that area of grey move from dating to dragging?  There’s a huge difference between giving a guy six weeks to choose you over the other people he’s dating… and to be a sucker for hanging around when they aren’t ready or not willing to date.

I recently read an article that stated that it should take a man six to eight weeks to figure out if they want to date you or not.  This obviously means that there are people who have that “love at first sight moment” while others take their time to carefully deliberate who thy are seeing and if they value your time.  I know from personal experience that I’ve been going through hoops with someone for almost six months trying to deliberate if it’s going to be worth it or not from both of our ends.  I think it comes down to three main points that someone should consider:

My 72 Hour Boyfriend

Matt O'NeillI’m sorry I’m yet again a day late for the weekend update but I’ve been very busy with work.  It ended up being a blessing in disguise because I have a much different topic to discuss today.  As of last night I am no longer in any level of relationship with anyone.  I was actually just 3 days prior pretty much in a committed relationship that lasted a total of about 72 hours.  But that’s just my life!  I had been talking to this kid for a couple of months now and we had our ups and downs.  Recently we discussed actually being in a committed relationship.  As of this past weekend, we told people we were.  As of last night, we longer were.  So the infamous C words I’m relating to is commitment, compromises and core values.  What does it mean to be in a committed relationship, what are the compromises that come along with that, and what are core values that one isn’t willing to budge on?

Sugar Daddy’s are more than Candy

I was going over my horrible spending habits this past weekend because I am looking into buying a new car.  I realized I spent WAY too much on life.  Most of it on new clothing because a boy can never have enough pairs of shoes.  This got me thinking though; I went on a date a few weeks ago with a boy who was very nice, we had dinner, enjoyed a movie, and had great conversation.  We went to a really nice restaurant and had a wonderful meal.  The only issue was all night the conversation seemed to go back to finances.  I love myself a sugar daddy as much as the next guy but I really didn’t like the idea of talking about how much money he made.  So after a few extra stong drinks, I was able to drown him out while he went on about those “great conversation pieces” I mentioned earlier.  The night concluded, and by the time I left I am pretty sure I could have been his certified accountant.  I was quite taken back by the amount of information he was willing to share.  So as I got back into my beat up, run down, 600 dollar, 2000 dodge neon, I thought to myself could I even date a guy who was out of my wealth range?
