  1. Eegads!!!
    Reminds him of his granny's house??
    I hope you poured yourself an extra strong cup of tea after the last gent., maybe with a couple "cups" of Whiskey added in after the notation of the dust under the sofa! Yeeks… for a guy to notice that… I'd be horrified to ever bump into him again!

  2. I have just laughed so hard…. what clever writing. oh dear me..am I ever so thankful that I have been blissfully married for the last 17 yrs. I cannot imagine a dating scene such as the type that you paint here with words.LOL

  4. I briefly dated a guy(over twenty years ago)who told me I would make a good wife because I cleaned pans well. I said "Bye, bye, so long!"

  5. Dear Lord, woman!
    Why do you tell them about Brocante home right away? If it's going to bring out Loonies like this. GEEZ!
    I HATED dating. I was always so worried and nervous about what the man would think that I could never just be myself. When I met my husband, he was engaged to someone else, so I didn't really care what he thought about me and just had fun…..18 months later I married him!!! It's been over 17 years now and he is the best decision I ever made.
    I guess what I'm saying is that maybe if you didn't care so much, you could find THE ONE!
    Also, going to church helps. I don't know if you're a religous sort, but it helped me quite a bit.
    Hang in there kiddo!
    God bless.

  6. Yikes, surely there is a safer way to find potential dates!
    Love the descriptions! LOL Surely there are still some kind, decent men out there somewhere, right?

  8. gawsh! That one who shoves food in his mouth with no manners and has no idea about vintage movie stars is definitely one to forget about…

  9. Killarious! You just made me feel _happily married_ – no matter if I feel like devorcing him in my PMS monthly. There must be a deep, creepy dating jungle out there, indeed.

  11. If you started a dating adventures blog I can guarantee that it would be a huge success. As a 30 something also out in the dating world I can completely relate!!!

  12. Ugh! Dating is so horrible!! I used to think that my so-called friends would just send any ol' single guy my way. Oh, I do feel badly for you! Maybe you should focus on the guy you already know you adore (Finn) and leave the rest for a bit. We all hand out the advice so easily, don't we? Just ignore mine if it's too stuffy! Blessings…

  14. Well, there can be advantages to dating strange men. I met my one true love after dating many, many annoying men. I was about to lose hope. Then, I went on a date with this man who was refreshingly kind and 'normal'. A few years before, I would have found him boring and certainly would have not fallen in love with him. But after dating liars, psychos and giant egos, I could not help but fall under the charm of this shy, sweet and intelligent man. Bad dates are over for me now. So hang in there, you will meet Mr. Right when you least expect it!
    P.S. I was 34 when I met him…

  16. How hysterical! I have been married for almost 23 years and I have often thought about what it would be like dating at this time in my life (almost 50! Yikes!) Even when I was dating here in sunny California, dating was like touring "Ripley's Believe It or Not"! I even remember being kissed by a guy that I fondly nicknamed "Trumpet Lips," because he kissed like he played his instrument. I thought I was about to become a blow fish!
    And, a date immediately helping himself to my kitchen without an invitation!? Ah! Most men are on their best behavior while dating… One can only imagine how he will depreciate if he's not one to work on relationships!

  18. Well at least you have variety, I usually end up with them talking to my chest all night (to be fair I am well endowed and it'd be difficult not to) and then me refusing to let them into my house and escaping at the first available opportunity!!!

  19. Loved hearing about your dating
    adventures — I do wish you more luck in the future. (He actually had his divorce papers IN HIS POCKET??????)

  21. I'm 32 and haven't dated since my divorce back in 2000. Everytime I read something like this I think "Ummm… I think I'll wait longer!". To be fair, the biological clock is no longer an issue for me so I can put it off as much as I want. It does seem like men go bonkers after 30.
