Giving Up Yet Reinvigorating

Thursday, February 02, 2006

Hey All! Before I go on I want to make sure you stop on over to the Audio Edition and check out the Wednesday Wist which I wrote on weds, but had to much going on and forgot to publish.
Anyway, I'll bet you're wondering what's with the title of the post aren't you? Well, even if you're not you're going to find out, so :-P
Giving Up:
I decided for the time being I'm giving up on dating for the time being. I figure when spring rolls around I'll be doing a lot of different social things again like kickball. I'll actually be the president of the Twin Cities Kickball Division so that will be interesting. But, after the run I've had recently with dating (Kickball Girl, Pute Paramedic, Hot friend and Gun Show Girl) I'm just sick of the whole thing. I don't have the will to be out there doing that whole thing, just don't.
I was talking with Conservative girl the other day about her search. She's doing the Match.com thing and has had a fairly consistent string of dates. She was asking me if I had found anyone new and while we were talking I realized that right now, I just plain don't friggin care. I also realized that those dating sites are pretty good for women, and completely and demoralizingly bad for guys. Women get about 60 inquiries to a guy's 1 and even after you weed out the losers, oldies and creepies, there's still a handful of possibles. A guy can send out about 50 emails and maybe get 1-2 back, a females sends one out she's almost guaranteed a reply. but yeah, as for the whole thing I really don't give a crap.
I have options, there's O'Gara's Girl that I met the other day at my buddy's B-day Party. We talked about going out, but I don't really know if I really wanna have to go through all the motions with dating. She was definitely a cute, funny girl, the type I would love to date, but I'm just not sure I'm up for it. It's pretty sad, but right now mentally, my relationship with my DVR is good enough. heh.
On the other side of things, though, I've decided that it's time this blog was reinvigorated. It's dwindled a bit because of the whole Improvement Plan thing ar work and all that. Unfortunately I haven't had a chance to keep up on all of your wonderful logs and that, in combination with me not being able to post as much fun content has lead to dropping from an average readership of 50 visitors a week day to about 17. This needs to change.
By the way, a big thanks to those 17 people, YOU FREAKIN ROCK! Thanks for being loyal through the rough patch ;O)
But yeah, here are the highlights of the Daily Slacker Reinvigoration Plan:
So yeah, thanks again to those of you still reading, and I hope we can get more people to join you soon! Spread the word, the Slack is on it's way Back!

i don't agree with you on the match.com thing...i had a friend that said she couldn't get hardly anybody to email her back...i told her maybe the guys weren't paying and could only see the emails and not reply...maybe it was yahoo...i don't remember...

another explanation could be her second head and 4th boob..

Ugh, I could never go back to dating. No way. Just thinking about it is making me sweat.

Nice to have you back in the game!

It's good to see you posting again. I've been wondering how you've been. I go through cycles where I don't want to date or even care to, so I understand.

Anyway, I like your reinvigorating ideas. :) I'm still here, still reading...i'll work on getting the slacker word out!

Just when you least are looking for it, opportunities with women will jump up and rape you. Violently.

Okay, maybe not the best analogy-thingy, but just focus on getting the rest of everything in order and the part with women will come naturally.
