A few years back I wanted to do a test on what source would provide me with the best dates. I was new to Buffalo and in Grad School, had my own place, and had the world by the balls. Instead of doing something in a half joking manner I decided to take a scientific approach to this. I wanted to legitimately meet someone from this and do a comparison between the following sources:
- women I meet in real life
- putting up or responding to a post on craigslist.com
- using a dating site like match.com
- using a hardcore adult personal site like adultfriendfinder.com
- a dating service
Well I have done just that over the last two months and I have kind of kept a diary that I am going to turn into a blog series throughout the next week. Oh and this series is going to be a beauty it involves: cripples, large black girls that may or may not have been men, crazy bartenders, the police, girls taking pole dancing classes, and some normal people.
Before I start looking into this though I need to do a little self evaluation. Why is a semi handsome and huge cocked son of a bitch like me single?
For this I have decided to go down the whole “Scott Baio is 45 and Single” route, I reached out to a few ex-girlfriends and sent them a questionnaire about me. The initial reaction didn’t go over the way I wanted it to:
Response 1: You have got to be fucking kidding me. The last thing on the face of the earth I want to do is talk about you.
My Reaction: This was a great one to get right out of the box, it not only made me question this whole idea but my station in life. I considered becoming a monk after reading that.
Response 2: I totally miss talking to you and I am so happy that you are still thinking about me.
My Reaction: Why did I message a girl that told me on our second date that I was the type of guy should could spend the rest of her life with?
Response 3: …..
My Reaction: I have been checking the local papers to see if anyone was rushed to the emergency room after sticking a pencil through their eye. Nothing as of yet.
Then finally I got someone that agreed to do it:
Response 4: Sure, sounds like a good time.
My Reaction: It figures, the girl I was probably the biggest asshole to but yet oddly enough have remained friends with wants in on this. To say I expected her answers to not be positive was an understatement, of course I would have needed to get them back in order to evaluate them… That didn’t happen.
So I am going to go into this experiment with very little feedback. I am going to dive right in and see what happens.
Is this going to be mildly interesting or the single dumbest idea ever?
(Note: There are some ground rules to this series, I am not going to be using any real names or pictures. Also as a baseline if I have posted profiles on any site I have put down the same information which is pretty much the same info on my MySpace page or my about me page on this blog. Also, I know a few of the girls that will be mentioned read my blog now after googling me or me telling them about it, so I expect to get a few death threats or nasty comments, it should be fun… ugh.)
