THIS is Why I'm Single!,  Uncategorized

I’m back!

Okay okay, fuss at me later!  As I’m sitting here with a compress on my neck and shoulder that is probably burning through a layer of my skin because it’s way to hot, I’ve got to write!!!

First, confession time – I am terrible at posting over long weekends and yes, I know, this is probably a little retarded when you figure you have MORE TIME away from work to blog right?  Um…. yeah.

So your girl has been missing in action and has been recovering from the partying, the men, the drinking and for the past couple of days.  Plus, my body feels like an old ’67 Chevy so I’ve been making love to with a bottle of Vicodin for my neck and back pain so when I get home; sleep is all I’ve been doing.

For those who care, it was All Star weekend here in Los Angeles.  This annual brouhaha is where the single mingle, those with boyfriends and girlfriends play the “I’m not married” card and normally cheat, and the married try really hard to behave amongst the basketball players, celebrities, scantily clad women and men dressed in their best are all in one place.  It’s like Disneyland folks!

I know what you’re thinking – was there some nookie in there?  Maybe, maybe not.

Of course, there are updates to share about the hangovers and anything else related to dating that is crowded in this little mind of mine, so the first reply received telling me what you want to hear, I’ll post it.  Here are your choices:

1.  Tall Glass of Wine’s “Ahhhh” Moment
2.  How to Date a Single Mother (I know, hypocrite especially after I moaned about dating men w/kids!!)
3.  The Best Nookie Ever – My Top 5 (sorry Esme and Simmarah, I’m sooo late!)
4.  My ramblings on Why Date? 

What say you blog world?

Hangover - a let down following great excitement or excess. Wow. This one sentence describes nearly all of my dating and relationship experiences! I'm a 30 year-old woman muddling through the Los Angeles dating scene and yes - Believe all that you've heard about the screwed up men and women in La-La Land. This blog is of my actual experiences that will either make you chuckle, laugh out loud or maybe say "aw.....". If your dating hangovers seem worse than the next person's, read on, post a comment and enjoy! Carmen

    OK, of course I am going to say the top 5!
    But I also need to know…an Ahhhh moment like ‘Ahhhh crap, something like this was bound to happen’? Or Ahhhh like ‘Ahhhh, he is really a great guy’? You can’t just leave it at that!!!
    And I am all for ramblings on Why Date. Because I, too, and wondering why I fucking bother…

    • Carmen

      Ah Esme!!!! That’s what I love about you… Able to pick up on the subtle hints by asking if that ahhh was a good or a bad thing. And girlfriend. There will always be a moment to wonder why the hell we are dating, hence the reason for my little survey.

      I think the problem with me is that I am meeting too many “want to meet new people” or want “new sex partners” vs those who date with the goal of actually settling down.

      Dating shouldn’t be this much work!!!!!

  • E.D.

    Good to see that you are back. As another who lives in the So Cal area…I stayed away from LA. …I agree w/ Esme….what the F*ck, and why bother…so go on with the ramblings of Why Date…it really is a dog and pony show…

    • Carmen

      What Erin, you’re sick of it too??? Here’s what I’ve concluded in the last couple of months of dating… We will need to collect 4 or 5 different types of people because what or who we are looking for and desire in a potential mate does NOT exist!!!

      1. Date buddy
      2. Fu*@k buddy
      3. Chill and relax or snuggle buddy
      4. Company function buddy
      5. Cool daily conversation and just friends buddy

      I give up on the platonic and monogamous relationship, and when I explain why Tall Glass of Wine is now another hangover, you’ll understand why!!

        You know, I have to say that I am digging this whole gay friend thing with Jake. He comes and visits me at the hospital. He tells me I look gorgeous. And I bet he would snuggle with me on the couch. That settles it…I need to marry a wealthy gay man!

          • Carmen

            You’re right Simmarah, wealthy and gay. Have you noticed the two sometimes go hand in hand? So off the topic of this post, but I have several W&G friends. Esme, you lucked up on Jake. Hell, maybe he’ll convert since he was a little confused in the beginning. LOL

  • Jessie

    There you are! Ailments acceptable, now on to the good stuff! The top 5 of course but in all fairness, the first to reply was Esme I think (too lazy to scroll back up) so let’s hear about the ramblings. Hope you’re feeling 1000%!!

    • Carmen

      Thanks Jessie, I’m feeling much better. The top 5 is almost ready to go but I think I need to condense the descriptions. I figure for each of the lucky men to make it in that top notch area, it would be an injustice not to explain HOW they got there. More to come, chat soon. =)
