So... I had a suggestion to post honestly about what it is like to be single. Since it's no secret I want to meet someone amazing and get married... well, here goes. I'm in school. I work full time at a pretty time consuming job (meaning I have to take work home with me... in fact I should be working right now!) I'm busy. When I do have free time I either catch up on sleep or hang out with my girlfriends. To get married, you have to date, but in my super busy life, I meet very few new people. This whole school thing is only a year long, so I can deal.
So... imagine my surprise when I go to take my final and a cute guy starts talking to me at the desk. Long story short... he asks me out and we met up last night for some drinks. Ugh... longest two hours of my life! There was just no spark. He was vegan... I'm sorry for all of you who are vegan. Vegetarian is one thing... gluten free is understandable because I've had my own digestive issues. Vegan is just too much! The guy ordered pizza with no cheese! That's the best part! I happily ate my caprese... savoring the mozzarella and being so grateful for cheese! :)
Anyways... so we just had nothing in common. We went for a walk and talked a bit, but I was just bored! I finally said I had to get up early... so I had to head home. I gave him a half hug, thanked him for dinner and headed home. As I was walking into my apartment (less than 15 minutes later)... I get this text.
You are a beautiful and smart woman and I feel like I need to be honest with you. Not that I'm trying to jump into bed with you, but about 5 years ago I had a girlfriend who wasn't honest with me and now I have herpes.
AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! WTF???? I mean seriously... we didn't even kiss. Not that I'm trying to jump into bed with you? Who do you think I am? We hung out for 2 hours! That is not necessary information to disclose at this time. And, look, I am sorry that happened to him. I'm not a cold hearted bitch... but ewww! I don't even know this guy! Why would he tell me that? That's at least maybe third date material! Ugh... so yes... this is why I hate dating. It is why I stay in my own little area and hope my prince will fall into my lap... preferably disease free...
