THIS is Why I'm Single!Uncategorized

Blank stares and stuck fingertips

I just sat here ready to return a phone call to one of the Hangovers BUT……


I think this is a problem. Is it because I’ve become a bit of a serial dater?

The only thing that comes to mind are all of the nicknames, so I’m wondering if this is a sign that I’m doing way too much??

Dating is really hard if you’re dealing with more than 2 at a time. I mean really, I never understood how people could have multiple dates lined up on one week. I can name several reasons why having this many men in rotation at once can be problematic.

For one, time consuming. I’m learning that my social life is taking a bit of a dive while I’m out philandering with these different candidates for failure.

Two, I don’t have the most expansive of wardrobes, so with each outing in the early stages with each guy, thought must go into what to wear. In fact, how retarded is it that I actually go out a buy a new outfit for first-time dates and sometimes a new top or something for follow up dates. Duh! If it’s the first date, they’ve NOT seen what I’m wearing before but still, have to be put together.

Third, there’s always the risk of double booking. I ran into this problem on Saturday- I had a bite to eat with Come Back Charlie, but the time I’d blocked out for him ran a little over until after 7pm. A dinner date was on the agenda for 9pm, but I was still a little full. Ladies, I know I’m not the only one who had to act hungry and be a pig by eating again!!

Fourth and probably the biggest issue with having this much action is the nookie factor. So what happens if I’m feeling one or two or three of these guys? I would totally push the promiscuous (tramp) envelope, right???

Ugh, so much to think about. Maybe I need to play eenie-meanie-minie-mo and work with one only?

Decisions, decisions! In the meantime, still can’t remember Black Russian’s REAL name.

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!



  1. Damn, the life of a single woman and I’m so living it up as well. I cracked up reading this because I do the same, especially refusing to wear something I already have. Funny part is men will never know old from fresh off the rack!

    Not a player, you just crush a lot! Haha

    1. Crush a lot?? Did you just quote Big Pun?? Classic.

      Yeah, having fun with the outings is important but I can’t lose sight of the ultimate goal- I DO want to settle down again, but without settling, ya dig?

  2. I laughed at this because the other dat I was talking to someone and told a story about jake and I…using the name Jake. Not his real name. Is like I am getting everything confused!!

    1. See, glad I’m not the only one. But do all of your guys know they have nicknames? Like have you ever called them their pseudonym by mistake?

      1. No, I haven’t. Thank Goodness! And none if them know about my blog. I would be horrified if I said ‘Hey Nice Guy!’ How do you explain that??

        1. I’ve mentioned to a few that I have a blog but stopped doing that shit! Too many kept asking 1)where to find it or 2)if they’re in it. Can you imagine GOP or USBC finding out what I reall think of them. Wow!

          1. It would only be questioned, if they could figure it out. One could be very evident (black russian) Rescue 911, GOP, USBC…would they be able to figure it out? Most of the time, too read what you have written to get it. They are too darn dense..
            Radio Silence….has surfaced again…so this should be interesting to see what comes from this…RTD also sent message…that I have been MIA.

            1. You might be right ED, the only one who knows his nickname well is GOP and he was too busy to *#$ me on a regular basis, so no worries there. I just need to not mention a blog to anyone I’m dating. Then again, there is a sick part of me that wants them to read how much of a dick they may be.

              What-the-hell??? Radio Silence AND RTD!! It WAS a full moon last night. My darling, what did you say to Mr. I Withdraw When I’m Stressed? By the way, I have a little something to share on the subject of men who punk out and withdraw when they can’t handle life. Dummies!

              Ladies I know we get stressed but we do know how to handle our emotions and just going deaf and dumb is not the way to do it!!

  3. You are definitely not the only one … lol. I almost wanted to call my date the alias I had dubbed him on my blog. LOL.

    And hell no, you aren’t dating a lot! (Just make sure you don’t scream out the wrong name in bed, hah, I almost did that a few times … freudian slip perhaps?)

  4. Love the Big Pun comment! So listen Carmen, what happens when you start feeling one dude more than the others??? You keep playing the field with all of them or start cutting them loose one by one? Rhetorical question more than anything, just wondering.

  5. Kendall, when I come across that one I feel is worthy of all of this (adding a finger snap), all of the sideliners will be eliminated!
