The Dating Diaries ~ Update, Opposites, And Bottom Feeders
First an update! I know you are all dying to hear how my next outing with the humorous Chuck went, and I must say, quite well. In my opinion anyway (Chuck can chime in anytime!). We went to The Shadowbox, my very favorite place to laugh my butt off, chair dance to a fantastic house band, and eat good food and drink cold beer. It was very nice, the company of course highly entertaining as always. Then we walked outside and watched the fireworks after the Reds game. Was a great night weather wise, and of course the conversation moved along at a great pace. Then we hit the Irish pub in the Levee before heading home to sit on the deck for a bit. Thanks Chuck, had a great night!!! 🙂
As in opposite personality types, lifestyle, just about everything.
I am moderately conservative in my political views. I say moderately because in some ways I am far more liberal than many on team Right Wing (I support gay marriage for example). In other ways, staunchly buried to the right.
I am also a meat eater. Meat IS dinner. I love my steaks, chicken and SOME sea food. Grill it and hand me the steak knife then get your fingers out of the way or risk losing one. I like goat curry and even like frog legs, though while I do agree they taste like chicken, I still battle with my stomach while trying to wrap my head around the idea of a bunch of little legless frogs. But, I DO like them. I will win the battle, no worries there.
And as you know, my faith is important. I have my beliefs. I was raised Catholic, left at 18 and have been to a variety of churches from charismatic to Methodist. My church is non-denominational, but lines up pretty closely with the Reformed Baptists (Calvinist). I know my way through the Bible fairly well, I’ve had my own for 27 or so years, it is highlighted, noted etc all over. I hate the term ‘religious’. I am not religious. I am a christian, I place all of my faith for eternity in the work of Christ on the cross and nothing of my own doing including my desire to follow Him.
So, imagine my shocker when I receive contact on one of the dating sites from a man who is very liberal, his religion is science (facts and logic he said), and he is a vegetarian. I’ll give you a moment to laugh at the possible hail storm this sort of match up might be. *moment* Yes, my thoughts exactly. ARE YOU FLIPPING KIDDING ME PAL???? Needless to say I said no thank-you, we have zero in common. He then wanted to get into a discussion about why I am conservative. No thanks, blocked! Opposites do attract at times, but rarely make it the long haul. Not a chance.
Oh if only some men had a clue. Do I LOOK like I should be standing on a street corner in a mini-skirt, wearing entirely too much make-up, chewing my gum and strutting my stuff, “hey sailor, buy me a drink?” on my lips? I should hope not, because if I do, I need to run for the convent. I have SOME class!
I received an email today on one of the sites (one I pay for!):
Damn you’re sexy! let’s have dinner?
Yep, hold me back, hubba hubba….NOT!!!! I suggested that he look at Adult Friend Finder or a swinger site, he is obviously clueless about class and relationships. Can you say BOTTOM FEEDER??? Ah well, loads of toads in the mix, but that is okay, I’m finding plenty of nice gents too.,
