Frisky Friday: Bored

It's been a hot minute (I hate myself so much for using that phrase) since I did a Frisky Friday post. It's because I'm bored. I'm bored of the guys I date. I'm bored of the limited options I have since I got bored of online dating and the bar scene a long time ago. I'm even bored of making bad decisions (that are at least fun in the moment). I'm bored of being single. I'm just bored.

I'm past the stage where I want to go out and party and/or hook up with people. I'm past wearing skimpy clothes to a bar with my hot friends to have drinks bought for us. I mean, how douchey is that. I'm not a douche (anymore). I'm. Just. Bored. I want a person who will watch Star Wars with me in our underwear on the couch and maybe get naked after. I want a person who makes health and fitness a priority by eating well and going to the gym (and maybe getting naked after). I want to be somebody's person they think about at random times of the day and smile. I'm not saying I want to get married, I just want to get past a third date. That's rare, even. Usually I'm happy to get past a first date. There are alotta single losers out there, amiright?

Why is the capitalization so sporadic? 
No me juzgues, I didn't create it.

The problem is, the things I like to do aren't really social, so meeting new people is a challenge. I like running...by myself. I like going to the gym, but I'm in the zone when I'm there otherwise it's not gonna be a productive workout. I like sitting on my couch and watching movies. I like doing silly, nerdy things. I love learning. Maybe I'll meet un homme Fran├žais when I finally master French using an app where I sit alone in my living room and don't talk to anyone except a cute little green owl (Duolingo).

I don't like bars. I don't like clubs. I don't like most people. I'm not anti-social, I'm just awkward. I know I'll find a person, but until then, I'll keep going on blind dates out of boredom. I'll keep dating my Facebook friends and, on occasion, my coworkers out of boredom. Eventually I'll push through the boredom to some excitement. Eventually. Maybe then I'll have more to say on Frisky Friday.

  1. Have you tried Tinder? A friend of mine is on it, and it's been entertaining! I haven't dated since 2001, so I don't have any advice, but I hope you find your person soon!

  3. I have you looked at meetup.com they have lots of different groups. You may find one to go with your interest and meet some new people. I haven't dated since 2007 so I have no idea what is like nowadays.
