My So Called Life - The Good, The Bad, The Ugly

Embrace life -- both the sweet days and the bitter...embrace the joy and the sadness...the successes and the defeats -- for all of these things, both good and bad, have made you who you are.

My Dallas Dating Debacles - Trainwrecks in History

Ok - so I plan to give a brief summary of a few of the relationships I have had here in Dallas. Actually, you can hardly call them relationships. Rather...just a brief summary of the guys I have dated....the only major relationship I had was with Brock, sigh.....:-)

Dallas Guy # 1:

Met this guy when I first moved to Dallas on the internet (Red Flag #1). Successful, damn hot, older (he was 32 when I was 23), did I mention hot. Oh yeah...and he was separated (Red Flag #2) And oh yeah, I was the first guy he ever messed around with (Red Flag #3) but at the time he was hot, and I was fresh to Dallas. One night he asked me to fuck him (I would have been his first, but I said no - I didn't have a condom! DAMNIT! - the opportunity never arose again...damn was he hot!)

Result - you predicted it - broke up with me after one month in a crushing scene over the telephone - sigh!


Dallas Guy #2

Met this guy about year after I moved to Dallas. Student (Red Flag #1) at local university. Mistake dating someone younger (Red Flag #2), but he was so cute. I was stand offish...he was needy....sigh...

Result - after 3 months we broke up - during the break up with many sarcastic pot shots at my expense and a dramatic crying scene, relationship terminated

Dallas Guy #3

Met this guy at the Village (Red Flag #1), now Station Four. I was passing by him and he just introduced himself to me. We went upstairs and talked and began dating, or hanging out as he called. He could not call it dating, b/c he was not comfortable with that (Red Flag #2). Should have been a warning sign, but it wasn't. He was an asshole, I was insecure (Red Flag #3)...sigh...

Result - after one month he called me up and told he couldn't put up with my "pouty" attitude...relationship terminated...

P.S. - at that time yes I guess I was a little pouty b/c I actually liked this guy and he was such a jerk - we are still good friends to this day - we obviously made up after the break up and fight...


Dallas Guy #4

Student (Red Flag #1)
Younger (Red Flag #2)
Ardent political activist (Red Flags 3 & 4) - yes this one counts twice
Not very communicative (Red Flag #5)Result - like you even needed me to tell you - we crashed and burned like the Hindenburg on a hot summer day in Arizona!


Dallas Guy #5 - My Biggest Mistake!

Now I call this my biggest mistake not because I want this guy back or want to date him again. It is my biggest mistake because I hurt him and it probably could have been avoided.

Met him online, but it actually seemed ok this time. Sweet, funny, cute guy - successful, owned his own house, great job, LOVED all of his friends. So why didn't it work you ask. There just wasn't that spark. It just didn't click with me on the inside. I cant explain it.

My fuck up comes in here. After I broke up with him the first time, I panicked and thought...what did I do...did I just give up a great guy...so I kept "hanging" around and started dating him a second time. Ended up breaking up with him a second time which really hurt him...

BAD MATT!

BAD MATT!

Result - we are still friends to this day - thanks mainly in part to his forgiveness.


Dallas Guy #6

Met this guy at the Round Up - very cute, great smile, good job.

Younger (Red Flag #1) - but that was really it...

Until one night he decided to make out with other guys right in front of me....

We had only dated a few weeks...

Result - haven't spoken to him since - what the hell would be the point of that - would be a total waste of my valuable time :-)

Yes I know this was just a short summary but to tell the whole story of each one would bore you to death I am sure...

Dating in Dallas has been a bigger disaster than the movie Waterworld....

Maybe Atlanta will hold greener pastures!

    I hate dating. That's why I keep holding on to my love-at-first-sight fantasies.
