Social Experiment #4

After receiving feedback on my list - Here's the verdict.

No matter how bad my OCD gets I can never control my life by list making. It's impossible. What's even more impossible is tailoring some rando to my list "wants". Literally feels like I'm shopping at the A&P.

Let's backtrack and take a look at the ex's why don't we. I've dated guys who believed Birth Control could protect them from STDs and pregnancies (yeah - I know), lame unfunny guys who never left their couch unless(!!) it was to smoke a blunt by the fire escape, guys who were still stuck on their ex and confused me with their therapist, and nearly every guy from my past had no sisters. Not exactly sticking to the list, am I?

Even though I'm disgusted by dirty guys with crooked teeth - I always manage to date them. Every single ex was unhygienic. But I was attracted to him as a whole person and saw the hygiene troubles as a minor blip. At times I barely noticed it.

I find that after my social experiment, forcing a relationship on some poor soul is just like date rape. They never wanted it to happen after one date but was coerced into it. Sad really. The whole depressing dating scene on its own makes people that desperate. Ladies are obviously more affected then gents.

Another thing, the "wants" are obviously reflecting the changes I am going through this growing-up period referred to as "my crazed storm before adulthood". Best thing is to ride it out and enjoy single-dom while still young and beautiful. If it happens, it happens same as if he asks for my number, I'll give it to him.

Well... the guys I've dated had something in common. No, it wasn't the fact they were complete opposites - trust me I can be skeezy-breezy at times. There was a certain trust there which totally set me at ease. And if they did cheat on me, job well done I still have no idea.

What the Social taught us:

- I have OCD

- Look appealing

- Don't be desperate

- People can't be constrained to a list

-You can't make everybody happy all of the time

- Just live your life

P.S. I'm naked
I'm numb
I'm stupid
I'm staying
And if Cupid's got a gun, then he's shootin'

Lights black; heads bang
You're my drug
We live it
You're drunk, you need it
Real love, I'll give it
So we're bound to linger on
We drink the fatal drop
Then love until we bleed
Then fall apart in parts

You wasted your times
On my heart
You've burned
And if bridges gotta fall, then you'll fall, too

Kleerup ft. Lykke Li - Until We Bleed

Social Experiment #3

This social gets feedback on whether I'm making it hard for the dude to even approach me. AKA are my standards way too high for anything to ever happen.

Impossible or Possible: Comments/emoticons/suggestions please Share

not looking for this.

Now let me know if my wants are possible or crazy. Anything I should drop? Bear in mind you are helping with research on an amazing social experiment. All should be free to comment even if I didn't tag you in the note.

Looking for:

- Intelligence. *what a turn* Preferably a combination of book and street smarts. Someone willing to correct my speech/grammar in public is a plus. I would also like to be able to learn new things from said person, even if they are boring topics.

- A sense of Humor. I do not want someone who is funnier than me because that in itself is humanly impossible. Instead, I would like someone who finds my sense of humor agreeable by chiming in with his laughter. Not at me of course.

-Attraction. True I admit to liking guys that have been given the "no-go" by friends but either way there needs to be an attraction, meaning that I need to find you attractive. And to be that you need to be hygienic, have good looking teeth, tall (I'm 5'9" so taller than that), and puny looking without the puny. Light colored eyes are and will always be the death of me.

-Have a Job. Or at least do something with yourself. And no, drug-dealing is not a job.

-Flies without baggage. Someone emotionally free from previous relationship and mental illnesses. I am not going to school to become a therapist.

-Has sisters. I find guys who have sisters can at times be more sympathetic and tend to lend their listening ears while still being a guy.

-Has cajones. I'm tired of guys that can't stand their own and guys who get walked all over. So not attractive. In fact not having cajones completely puts them in the friend zone forever. Being aggressive is key here.

-Secure with himself. Not insecure. I would like to avoid guys that tend to say "what are you even doing with me? You're so fill-in-the-blank" Pretty soon it will have me thinking, "what am I doing with you, I'm too fill-in-the-blank for you".

-Spontaneous. I need someone to be crazy with me and who wont worry about what's going to happen next. Take each day as it comes without a dull moment. Excluding lazy Sundays.

-Motivated/Not Lazy. Someone who is doing something with his life is better than someone who is doing nothing with his life. Granted he can go out and become party monster (I do it occasionally), but once he taps out of that party-mode I would like him to do something with himself. Lazy Sundays are excluded once again.

-Likes small blind dogs. Self-explanatory.


Okay so is this do-able or is this list impossible?

Baby, I'm Just Bad News.

Finally out of this horrible food coma. I've lost 10lbs. to binge drinking and managed to gain 15 during this turkey week. Feels good - my jeans fill out.

10 Songs I predict to hear a shit load from:

1.Rilo Kiley - Portions for Foxes

It could literally be my theme song for every guy I lush over/wasted time on.

2.The Drums - Let's Go Surfing

Sounds like the fun I have when out and about during Holiday.

3.The Rifles - The Great Escape

"Waiting for the day you're not looking for something else" - rings true.

4.Little Boots - New In Town

Constantly working because I keep taking new dudes out. Needs to stop. Probably wont.

5.Black Kids - Hurricane Jane (the twelves remix)

My answer is still no thanks to guys who want to "officially" date now - "or alone. That would be better".

6.Friendly Fires - Paris

The obsession with France started with one guy and evolved into unimaginable desires. Dick.

7.Clap Your Hands Say Yeah! - The Skin of My Yellow Country Teeth


8. Anya Marina - Whatever You Like (T.I. Cover)

She sounds seductive. Listen to her. I'm taking notes.

9. Florence + The Machine - You Got The Love (The xx remix)

It's the romantic in me that envisions things to this song as if my life is a movie.

10.Atlas Sound - Walkabout

"To go away and not look back and think of what the others say" - love this line. If only.


***Cake - Short Skirt/Long Jacket

Have been told that this is my song/describes me to a T. I concur. And it describes my winter outfits as well.

Now let's get this social experiment on track. Backtracking will only help the cause. My friends not too long ago gave me an intervention like I was some drug crazed crackee. This is what I had to abide by.

1. I will admit to me wanting to be in a relationship, no bullshit, but only with the right person.
2. I will not go about it in a "dick" way aka I will be honest. And just to let everyone know, that will backfire.
3. I will listen to advice/input of close friends.
4. I will not pursue guys who tell me they are not into dating or girlfriends. It hasn't worked this year and I doubt it will work again for the upcoming year, or so thy friends tell me.
5. I will stop selling myself short and will start to understand my full worth does not equal 2.5 PBRs and awkward mornings. AND realize just because a guy can make me laugh is never a good excuse for anything in general.
6. To stop making crude sexual jokes like a man in front a man. Apparently, those jokes make me sound slutatiocious, and we don't want that.

Not having standards is too easy and says a lot about how you think of yourself.

The next part was letting your friends know who you "feeling" and if it's a nay or a yay. It's been known that Ladies will make excuses for a guy and stick around way longer (even when the whole world knows they shouldn't) than a guy ever would. So I ask the companions, for their thoughts and try not to make excuses.

The friend - if stable.

Canada pt.2 -lives far away, but moving to the City come this Summer :D

There was a longer list, but it got chopped up and prodded when I didn't make excuses. So with things simplified, I'll head out to mi cama. Tomorrow we'll catch up and post up social #3 and other embarrassing things.

P.s. - My fbomb about me is what gave me a kick to stop being so yawn-tastic on this. Thank goodness.

About Me: Socially Awkward: Being single is amazing, hence being single is depressing. It gives me something to write about so read my blog. I'm entertaining.
