    Well, she's a No Show. I guess I should have expected as much. Ditch me once, shame on you. Ditch me twice, shame on me.

    Uh, did she ever get back to you about changing the time?

    She did not. I don't know why I was expecting this to work out. I should've known better.

    I think I'm going to deactivate all my dating profiles and write off romance for the foreseeable future. 2016 will not be my year, I feel.

    Probably a dumb question, but were you there at the time she thought the date was?

    Nooo don't do this! I mean, do it if you really don't want to date at all, but like, don't let crappy no-shows get you down. You're adorable! And fun! And who knows about this chick.

    I've never been a fan of deactivating a free profile. Just like, don't use it? It's not like people will message you if you're aren't actively messaging people anyway.

    Today I saw a Hersey thing in Tesco, I nearly had to get the smelling salts out I was so shocked.

    I'm so sorry.

    the other day I heard some yuppies say they preferred Hershey to Cadbury after trying both
    my lip curled instinctively

    what the fuck
    in terms of milk chocolate
    how in the fuck does Hershey ever come out on top?

    Because it's cheap and everywhere and people got used to it. It is the flavor a big chunk of people think of when they think of chocolate.

    I think I'll text the girl from the hike tomorrow about next weekend. The orange trees out back are blooming and the apartment has literally never smelled better. This is the perfect time for someone to come over.

    Sometimes "fancier" chocolate actually doesn't taste that great to some people.

    I know I can't stand Lindt's regular range.

    If you give me milk chocolate I will probably eat that milk chocolate.

    I just ate a pickled egg, two pepperoni sticks and a cheese string and I need something sweet right now.

    It's also probably the worst chocolate to eat in the northern territory.

    The entire thing is either an uneatable goopy mess. Or it's from the fridge so it's all solid, and it misses the point of it anyway.

    I'm a chocolate snob. If you give a Hershey's milk chocolate bar I will politely say thank you and then discreetly put that shit in the trash when you're not looking. Give me 70% cacao or higher. I'd buy a case of Pascha bars every week if I were made of money.

    It's not just this chick, it's this chick plus 8 months of continuous failure to find someone who even comes close to holding a candle to my ex, nevermind somehow getting their attention and hoping they keep up consistent communication with me. The universe has spoken, and I must have the wisdom to realize the message it is sending: "Don't bother."

    Seems pretty straightforward to me.

  • honoverehonovere Registered User regular
    I can be quite self-deprecating myself, but using it as an opening line seems ill advised. Also: grammar!

    I like that if i decided to go on a date with him at some point big men in suits will come and drag me to the second date. As one date is just not allowed, making my mind up during the first date makes me a woman of questionable intentions.

    Is that what that second part of the message means? I admit wasn't quite able to parse it.

    Yeah, well I'm hoping that's not exactly what he meant.

    Being self-deprecating is the worst, for me personally. I've been there with the low confidence, but for goodness sake you are not making me want to date you by putting yourself down.

    Yeah I used to be like that a lot and while I've not had to date anyone since I've learned differently, it makes sense that introducing yourself to someone by telling them how little you think of yourself, is not a good way to help them see you as anything different.

    Date #3: he's slowly realizing he can touch another guy and not burst into flames. We played Halo co-op (first time for me) and I didn't do too badly, especially after I got the hang of aiming.

    I think self deprecation is fine, in the right situation.

    But it really can't be in your profile, and it can't be a crutch for your comedy. Otherwise it just gets sad quick.

    Yeah, self-deprecation should add flavour to your character, not be your character.
