Plenty of FailTHIS is Why I'm Single!Uncategorized


Okay, here’s something interesting that just happened.

I’ve been bombarded with messages from this dating sight (remember, the sign up was only supposed to yield laughs and blog material), and occasionally, one catches my eye. You know, like Black Russian.

So I’m reading through the message and am impressed by the fact that the guy:
– has actually read my profile
– joked about some things I specifically said in my profile
– his grammar was on point
– he mentioned he was NONE of the things that turn me off about men


He’s nice looking. The problem? I know him. Pretty damn well and can vaguely recall our last sexual encounter some years ago which was great!

I mean really great, and aside from a few KEY issues, he’s a pretty decent guy but always seemed to have some type of female drama. For instance, after our last reunion I ended up stranded in Buena Park with no way to get home.


Well… some mystery woman he was involved with either (1) followed us back to his place (2) was pissed that he didn’t answer her late night calls and was already waiting in the parking lot and saw us pull up or maybe even (3) was listening to the door and heard he was a little busy.

Whichever the case, said woman made sure he knew it was HER who slashed ALL of his tires and keyed the ENTIRE driver’s of his car.

Yes, he’s a hangover and no- me being around him when these types of incidents happen isn’t new.

It’s been some years and he obviously doesn’t recognize me from my profile photos, so I’m pondering how to respond,  if at all.

My mind is telling me run girl, run quick!!!!

Until there’s a cure….

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. No!


    You already know he’s trouble. Why bother with anything? Once you take the trash outside, you don’t go back out and bring it back in again.


    I’ll just screen your potentials from now on. Send ’em over.


    1. “Duh, silly girl, why even ask. Have you not learned anything??” Is what you really mean, right Caleb?? Lol.

      I know better than to try hooking up with him ever again. Trying to explain to someone at 7am why you need them to come pick you up from some dudes house was enough for me, trust.

      But because I’m one of those people who just has to make someone go “Oh, damn”, I will reply so he knows who I am and wish him luck then add his profile to Don’t Date Him! Okay, kidding about the last part, he wasn’t THAT bad.

      1. Yes! That is what I mean. Any sort of contact, for a lot of guys, is enough of an opening for them to “convince” you to see them. But you do what you want- even though I’ve never, ever, been wrong.

        Oh, and more importantly, THERES A SITE LIKE THAT?? If you’re serious, you have to go check for my name.

        ::fingers crossed::

        1. Too late, already replied. See one of the faults (I guess that’s what it is) with me is the need to not leave anyone wondering why.

          I guess because so many people have dealt with not knowing why they didn’t get a reply to something or a call back. F#@k that, I’m going to! Not always, but most times.

          So here is what I sent to Dilemma:

          Love the introduction! I can tell
          that you actually read my profile
          and seem like someone I would be interested in getting to know.
          Only there’s this one thing.


          The last time we hooked up was a few years ago, I think you were living in ______ and just like what happened almost 10 years before that, some crazy chick you were dealing with ran me off.

          I believe she did something to your tires and car? Hmm.

          The times with you aside from that, pretty cool and the sex- amazing.

          Saying all of that and since you
          obviously didn’t recognize me from the profile pic, your memory may not be as good as mine. =)

          Good luck looking for what you’re looking for on POF because it shouldn’t be me.


          1. Awesome! Thanks for posting that. Your candor is winning.

            You have to send me follow up emails though. For serious.

            And yes, it would totes be an accident if I was on that site. Misunderstanding, really.

        2. And YES! That sight is VERY real, LOL! I’ll go and check your name and let you know if you somehow got mixed up (accidentally, right?) In the land of the Douchiest men known to women. Haha

  2. Ohhh boy! I remember this hangover. Reply and refresh his memory…..then go from there. Maybe he’ll give an explanation of what took place and you can post that here!

    1. Lol! I knew you would remember!! I posted the reply I sent to him. We shall see if he responds, this could be juicy. I’m a mess, I know!

  3. What I find terribly amusing is that he didn’t recongize you and tried to pick you up. LOL. LIKE SERIOUSLY?

    GOD and I love your response to his message. LOL, awesome. I bet he didn’t know what to do with that.

    1. Oh yes Simmarah, I was like “what the hell” too but in his defense, I DO look quite different. Much finer! Lol

      No, I have on one of my wigs in the profile picture and come on, POF? Those men hit on so many women at the same time, they probably don’t even notice if a woman has a pet lizard on their forehead!!!

      This is what he sent me (another reminder for folks to remember that anything you e-mail, dirty pics included, there is some blogging chick ready to post that shit!)

      ” Amazing and you aren’t open to a friendly lunch date and talk at some point? Ten years ago was a loooooooooooooong time and of course I recognize you but yes, it was ten years ago……lol…….So now what?

      No shot in a lunch or a walk at the beach sometime? If nothing else something casual? Sex would have been amazing only because of chemistry………..So what are you gonna do?

      Wish me luck and push me away or be open minded (that crazy chick is looooooooooooong gone) and possibly allow a meet up for us? What do you think? Just to let you know, I will not take no for an answer…

      Let me contact you, how can I call you?”

      And there you have it!

  4. Oh I totally would have fucked with him. Seriously, it would have been so easy!! You could have set up a date and not shown up, or you could have gone in a disguise and fuck with him more. OR kept e-mailing him and post it all on here! Ack! You missed out on so many opportunities!!

    But WTF is up with the ‘push me away, but I won’t take no for an answer’ bit?
