Seeing The Light

Chatting today with a female co-worker…

Her: “You should sign up on ALL the dating sites! That’s what I did!”

Did I mention that the co-worker is one of those really, truly, insanely annoying bubbly types?

Me: “Wow. That must have cost you a fortune.”

Her: “No, you can sign up on all the sites for free!”

Cue quizzical look from me.

Me: “But you have to pay to contact anyone. That adds up.”

Her: “Well, I didn’t pay anything because all the guys contacted me…”

Not the sharpest tool in the shed, this one.

Me: “Aaaand that would mean for me? You know, as a guy?”

Her: “…that… uh… as a guy you’d have to pay for all the sites, wouldn’t you…”

Me: “Ooooooooh, ouch. Seeing the light is painful sometimes, isn’t it?”

Her: “Heh, yeah…”

Unfortunately, nobody seems to be lining up to throw a gift subscription to at me any time soon…



  1. *snicker*

  2. Maybe you could try some after work socials or mixers that are hosted by young professional networking groups in your city? I go to alot for work and there’s so many people and its so relaxed and casual. You meet some really interesting people.

  3. Gee, why don’t you date her? She seems really….nice. Ugh!

  4. I think you should ask all of your readers for donations. I’d kick in $50 just to have every date chronicled in detail on your blog. Oh – and you have to sign up on a cougar site, too. Maybe they’d give you a free membership on one of those…

  5. Doesn’t guarantee that you’ll be hooked up with your soulmate or something in six months? I agree with Mel Heth, I so want to read about your dating exploits.

  6. *giggle* I take no responsibility for the bubbly women on the west coast…not our fault. 😛 man. It’s free, and the contact bs is relatively cheap.

  7. I can kick in a few bucks too btw.

  8. LOL! Why are the bubbly types always so dim?

  9. “Aaaand that would mean for me? You know, as a guy?”

    did you really elongated the and? I know, I know, I’m sorry, maybe it’s the congestion but this is so funi 😀

  10. some chicks are just dumb. I guess it works both ways. Its like McK says, “Boys are handsome but they sure are dumb.” Ahhhhh the wisdom of a 5 year old.

  11. Homer-Dog – as a “bubbly” gal myself, I resent that comment! 😀

  12. Just A Girl – Perfectly said.

    Ruby – I don’t think those things are quite so common in LA…

    TheCoconutDiaries – *snort*

    Mel Heth – Ask my readers to throw their money away? Nah. But if you want to, by all means go ahead

    Dingo – Yep. You just have to sign up for the six month plan at $119.94 first…

    CripKitty – LOL. Okay, you’re off the hook. Isn’t Nerve free to sign up, then they hit you up for cash just like all the rest?

    CripKitty – I’ll keep that in mind…

    Homer-Dog – I have no idea.

    Narami – I actually did!

    BackPackerMomma – Well, I fully admit to being dumb a lot of the time.

    Mel Heth – Trust me, compared to this girl, you’re positively placid.

  13. @Mel Heth: I should have added “Present company excluded”

    My bad 🙂

  14. what makes you so sure you won’t be contacted by women? you should go for it and see what happens. i’ll donate a few bucks too if it helps.

  15. Haha, thanks Homer.

  16. What about Plenty of Fish? That’s the one I use. Granted, I have only met weirdos but it might be worth a try, if only for blog fodder.

  17. Homer-Dog – Good man!

    Blakspring – Welcome to the site. Well, I’ve been on online dating off and on over many years and, to date, not a single woman as initiated contact…

    Mel Heth – LOL

    Mrs Chuck Bartowski – Maybe it’s an LA thing, but I didn’t see a lot of possibilities there…
