So I wanted to write a supplemental blog because well what else am I doing? Anyway.

Let’s talk about being single and the purpose behind this blog. First let me go grab a yogurt. I’ll be right back. 🏃🏃🏃🏃Ok I’m back.

Let’s talk about my dating experience. My life as a dater sucks. I hate it. I don’t like selling myself. I haven’t dated in a long time.

But when I did, it was the funniest shit ever!

I remember one guy I met online he was always sitting. I wondered about that. Turns out he’s in a wheelchair. I can’t deal with this.

Another guy I meet. Omg our conversation was great. He typed really fast. That’s a turn on for me. Lol I like a man who is good with a keyboard. ( My standards are very low). His name was Michael. He was kinda cute and we hit it off online. I was like YES! This was 2011. I have a test that I take every potential guy through. If you pass each level, we proceed. If you don’t, you’re dropped. He was doing great! Finally it’s phone call time. We are about to talk for the first time! Omg I’m ecstatic! I call him and a womans voice answers. I’m like, uhhhh , and I just hang up immediately. I will tell you, he was not expecting my call. I stare at my phone in disbelief. I called back again and I hear a slight feminine sound but then he clears his throat and he begins to sound manly. I said Michael is that you, and he says yes. TILL this day I don’t know what that was, but I was not about to stick around and find out. In my mind this dude was living a double life and I don’t have time for that.

Another guy. He was a school administrator. He was a decent looking guy. He had these thick lips and gorgeous smile. He was black of course. Michael was white. Anyway, we chat about shit. I’m happy because he works at the highschool I went to. We set up our date. We go to Applebee’s. Late night. Awesome! Drinks are watered down. He buys me a bogo. He’s so proud of himself. After the meet and greet which is really all it was, we walk out to our cars. He hugs me. I’m not feeling it, but whatever. Then He does the strangest thing I’ve ever seen a man do. He turned his back to me and put his ass on me. I’m 5’9 and he’s taller than me. So I’m like leaning up against my car with this dude up against me. What the fuck do I do? I’m the girl. I’ve done that to guys, but never had a man lean on me for support. He was HEAVY! THEN he was like making his booty bounce on me. Ok yes, maybe he was just playing around, but to me, I think he wanted another dude. I aint got Time for that.

Another guy. I was in to him a lil bit. We had fun. Until he made out with a chicken bone! So we went to a restaurant with AYCE chicken wings. He was trying to be sexy and or cute, but he kept deep throating the chicken! He literally twirled his tongue around the chicken bone while staring at me! It was awkward! I just can’t. I just can’t do it. He was a Latino named Rico

Then there’s cute brainy Mark. Oh he was adorable and SMART! Oh gosh a man who can hold an intelligent stimulating conversation. Yes yes yes! I was riding a scooter at the time. Just a 50cc. But I loved it. So I meet Mark on Date Hookup. Very nice respectful young man. The problem. He was 100% broke. There’s homeless men out there with more than this guy. I’m not materialistic, but DAYYYUM dude he couldn’t afford anything! I literally hopped on my scooter and went to pick him up. This isn’t funny. He asked me to buy him a Sprite and a pack of cigarettes. No lie. I drove us to the park. Now you might ask Ericka why did you go out with this guy if you knew he was broke. Honestly I thought he was just being silly. I kinda went just to verify that he was REALLY as broke as he said he was. After our meeting I drove him home. And he rode behind me on my scooter holding on like a bitch! He had his fucking head on my shoulder! Wtf!  …  I told him I’m not going to be seeing him anymore. He was looking for a sugar momma. No time for it.

Then there’s the boyish Virgo. He had gorgeous blue eyes and spiky dark hair. He was SOOOOO cute! On our date we went to McDonald’s.😂😂 And star bucks. I hate McDonald’s but I figured the company would be good. Let’s just say I played DR PHIL! He talked about his ex all damn night! Wtf! She did this. I hated that about her. …  Ugh I just sat there thinking, this ain’t going nowhere.  He did custom graphics on cars. He was good at it too. But that didn’t last. We stayed friends for a couple weeks then it fizzled.




The point of this blog is be glad you’re not ME!

I want to get back out there. But I just can’t. There’s too much weirdness out there. I remember when I was younger I’d always hear people say that old people are set in their ways. And it’s true to a degree. I’m really getting more and more set in my ways and a lot less willing to compromise.

After a marriage of 14 years, you learn a lot about yourself. And when attempting to enter a new relationship, you just don’t want to tolerate anything. I’m looking for people in my life who are JUST LIKE ME. Honestly I don’t want any opposing views. I like that on my blog. Not my personal life. I am a firm believer that opposites do not attract. I think being with someone who’s just like you is the perfect existence. To me life is too short to be quarreling with someone about their own personal choices and their own personal decisions just because they don’t line up with yours. I would not want to date someone who did not read or did not understand poetry or did not like History or whatever the things are that I like.

I don’t know how people get into their relationships with other people where they constantly feel like they’re pulling teeth to get their spouse to do anything. I can’t stand that. If I have to beg you to go to a function or if I have to beg you to go see a movie with me or whatever it is I like, I don’t want anything to do with you. And vice versa.

If you find the key parts of your life that matter the most, make sure the partner you choose has those exact same feelings. Make sure he or She likes it.

I think a lot of us are with the wrong mate.
