Quick thoughts on dating

New profile pic y'all. Showing my dark (knight) side.

And on an unrelated note, I'd like to welcome CS back to the Bauer side of the Jack line. I saved you a seat.

There's a part of me that wants to avoid discussing the female gender on this blog purely because of the possible responses.

Then there's a bigger part of me that wants to read every one of those responses and watch the mayhem unfold.

Aww, what the hell...

One of the reasons I don't date very often is because the type of girl that I'm attracted to seems really hard to find. And I'm not even sure I know how to describe that 'type' of girl...but I know it when I see it.

Does that mean there is no type?

Maybe there's just a small percentage of the female population that I view as 'dateable'. That probably sounds like no one is good enough for me or that I'm too picky. But a good friend of mine (who's been married now for 2 years) recently told me "you can never be too picky."

I like that.

I like having high standards. If there's anything you should be too picky about, shouldn't it be the person you're going to fall asleep with and wake up to EVERY morning for the rest of your life?

Everybody has an opinion on who I should date. Those who are smart try to introduce me to their prospect without my knowledge of the set-up attempt. If you're going to set me up or simply want me to meet someone, don't tell me about it. Just let me remain in my odd little world oblivious to my surroundings.

Again, this post may be asking for trouble.

I just feel like there are SO few high quality girls out there...and I need to vent my frustrations about that every now and then.

Just kidding.

"You can never be too picky." - I like that.

I'm of the opinion that there is a large population of women out there for you to date. Its a matter of putting yourself in positions to find them, giving them (and yourself) a chance to get to know each other, and knowing clearly what it is you are and aren't looking for.

The whole love/dating/romance thing is so confusing to begin with, I think a little clarity on the front end helps a lot. Don't be afraid to give every girl you meet (not the married ones) a chance, respect 'em all, and don't be afraid to say goodbye if its not working. To quote the Stones: "Time is on [Y]our Side".

First off, let me say that I agree with the idea of "You can never be to picky." Whoever said that is oh-so-wise... hahaha...

Anyway, I do have one thought though. To say that you feel like there are so few high quality girls is a pretty broad statement. I'm wondering if it's not that the girls aren't quality, but more just not YOUR type of quality - what you deem to be important. I know a lot of "quality" girls, but they are all REALLY different from each other. They each bring something awesome to the table. The love different things. look differently, and interact differently. Some may find what they have to offer to be appealing, others may not. But I don't think that defines whether or not they're "quality."

Also, I'd agree with Kaydo when he says "Don't be afraid to give every girl you meet (except the married ones) a chance, respect 'em all, and don't be afraid to say goodbye if its not working." I think that's really good advice... I think it opens the doors to a lot of opportunities, but also allows for your "pickyness" to be important, you know?

But then again, what do I know? I have no experience in this area, as we've already discussed.

There are very few quality people in the world, girls or otherwise.

Perhaps you could have a try at courting ... thus kissing dating good-bye.

When all also fails, there's always prostitution.

That ends my 10 seconds of Doctor Neil Clark Warren.

I like the method of focusing very specifically on what you're looking for (works for new jobs, hobbies, financial situations), and then giving it up- "This or something better, Lord."

Or, there are plenty of Russian mail-order-brides to be had for a nominal fee.

I say just find someone willing to work for cash. It's probably your best bet. Most girls suck.
Just kidding.
I feel like frying chicken because right now it's the only thing worth cooking. Then again. the fat content isn't worth it, especially if you are cooking a young, helpless chicken.
The End

I think the girl you end up marrying will definitely see the need for things like 'Oprah's bra show'. This might be away to start separating the girls from the women right away.
Futhermore, I agree with Neil/Kelly that there are some quality women,you just have to put yourself in their vacinity. I don't know where that vacinity would be though. Maybe at Harpo Studios. Don't tell Mark I said that.

Good one, Kelly. I'm sure I'd never come back to see the comments.
