Mr. One Upper - Repost

The following is a repost from I Hate 2 Date.  Peep it.  You won't be sorry.

Well, I sucked it up and went out on the date with….hmmm….let’s call him Mr. One-Upper. This has inspired me to construct another installment of Please Don’t. You determine how the date went.
Please Don’t….
1. Cancel the date 2 hours before and then re-schedule.
2. Pick a very expensive restaurant and then text me “We’re just meeting for drinks!”
3. Try to get me plastered within the first 20 minutes.
4. Insist that you know more than me….about everything….and then insist my opinions are wrong but cute.
5. Tell me you grew up with a live-in maid on a first date. Come to think of it…I don’t ever need to know that.
6. Repeatedly ask me if you meet my expectations?
7. Tell me that if I wasn’t attractive you would have bailed within the first 30 minutes.
8. Call the bartender honey or sweetie while you continue to annoy both her and I.
9. Check your blackberry in front of me all night. C’mon fellas that one is a no brainer.
10. Ask me “do you know what that means?” when speaking about world affairs.
11. Make sure to incorporate how successful you are in every other sentence.
12. Be so friggin’ obvious when checking my cleavage.
13. “One Up” me on anything and everything.
14. Think you are so worldly because you travel to NY for business a few times a month.
15. Tell me how beautiful the women you date are. Surely you are undeserving and impressing them with your wallet!
Actually the date was ok. It’s the post date wrap up that makes me realize what a douche he is. Surely what appeals to most women repulses me!

About Me

My photo
I am the product-child of the Women's Lib movement. I have a grade A education, a promising career and no immediate goal for children or a spouse. I will be 30 this year and I have spent many years in monogamous relationships. In and out of 1 to 2 year relationships, I always dated with the goal of meeting someone special. Most of the time I didn't date. Most of the time I found myself falling into relationship after relationship. These relationships were doomed to fail. They were all built on expectations that were, for me, unattainable. I love meeting new people. I find sex enjoyable and empowering and I am not happy when I am monogamous. So, after my last break-up, after taking some time to grieve, I decided to cut my societal puppet strings and get back in the game. I set out on a mission to spend the Summer of 2010 dating as many men as possible. My only initial criteria was attraction. My only limitation was - no love and no structured relationships. This is my date by date tale of what life can be like outside of the goals of relationships and love.
