Andrea Silenzi has a new live show tonight and wants help rewriting the rules for dating!  Give her a call at 201-209-9368 or tweet @andreasilenzi.

For your consideration:

  1. Meeting people.
  2. Pre-date communication.
  3. The “Wait 3 Days Rule.”
  4. The first date — the beginning.
  5. Paying.
  6. The first date — the end.
  7. Early relationship.
  8. Meeting friends/family.

My thoughts:

Best responses to the rando/crazy ex-girlfriend post

These were some of my favorite responses to “And that’s why you don’t bring a rando to your office holiday party“:

“If you need someone to give him a beat-down, I will punch his root canal.​”

“Want me to call in sick and take a baseball bat to his kneecaps?  Or is him having an ex like that punishment enough?”

“Greetings from Sri Lanka! I can’t participate in a beat down but I can maybe pray at a temple that a curse befalls him. That seems in line with Buddhism right?”

“That’s why I never kiss ’em on the mouth.” [technically a Jayne Cobb quote]

“what a spineless fucktard.”

“Bag of dicks”

“ok, i’ve only read the first 2 paragraphs, but this is kind of amazing” [from my ex]

“damn, you put the smack down” [my ex again]

“Reading your story made we want to start drinking beer” [I can’t think of a higher compliment]

“I don’t know what you were thinking dating a military guy from West Virginia in the first place.”

What the Hell

A few weeks ago, I recorded an interview with a friend at WFMU, and it just aired yesterday.  So check out the link below to hear me say some things on the radio I mistakenly assumed would be edited out.

And that’s why you don’t bring a rando to your office holiday party

I met a guy, Johnny Army, at the end of September, and by December we were spending a lot of time together but were only just beginning to talk about being exclusive, which we were by default but not fiat.  The admins in my office were pressuring me to bring him to the office holiday party in mid-December, but I knew it was too soon and my boss backed me up.  The holiday party was last Thursday and I flew solo, returning home late; Johnny kindly fed my cat before returning to his place.

On Spark Theory — Ex Edition

I want a girl who will laugh for no one else
When I’m away she puts her makeup on the shelf
When I’m away she never leaves the house
I want a girl who laughs for no one else

– “No One Else” by Weezer

“The Spark” and “connection” are two of the most common terms used when discussing dating and relationships. [They also remind me of this terrible early episode of Angel — Joss had no script credit and the music is especially offensive].   Continue reading On Spark Theory — Ex Edition
