whatcha ona bout girl??
A retrospective on the inner workings of love, flying pancakes, mensa disasters, dandelion cookies, number bending, super salt, bubblegum oysters, chicken spit, crystal kidneys, guerilla carrots, polychromatic tofu, paraphysics, tender vigilanties, black sand, phillastine placebos, wood soup, buttered shuttlecocks, apostrophe training, fish whips, bleeding speed, plastic fantastic lobster telephones, venus drug rehab, clowns on fire, kiosks on a leash, marshmello overcoats, bottled light, fried blood, unbridled hyperthyroidism, folding wine, amygdula tickling, fainting in coils, hamburgers for the apocalypse, plastic memes, and conjugal fritters.....well...the love parts true

Online dating, strip poker, and killin dinner


Im gonna say I’m lucky. Yeah dude……lucky……. Well…with most things that is…… playin the lottery is NOT my thing, and my last trip to the dog track was nothing short of a disaster, and I confess…….. Im not a card player…..although I would love some lessons…..
I cant say blessed….just lucky…cause I’ve had some good relationships in the past…..and I’m grateful for that….cause there are times when love isn’t around….. I mean….. I have my health….. Seriously dude…..
This is a picture of my local matches from an online dating site…….Like I said…I’ve got my health……….Now I can’t take credit here.

You got to know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em,
Know when to walk away and know when to run.

Some things just ARENT meant to be. Im good with that. Im still a lucky man. I’ve tasted love and know how good that feels…..I have a feeling there are waaayy too many people who never get their shot. Now THAT would stink. Big time……Weathering times by yourself because the love train isn’t stopping is one thing…..but to NEVER get a ride is……….well……. not pretty. Like I said …I’m lucky.
I’m a man. In my world I have to prepare for times when I’m unlucky. A REAL man doesn’t trick a woman into sleeping with him. He doesn’t make her feel guilty. He doesn’t control her or make her feel trapped to get what he wants. A lucky man is patient when he’s unlucky in love. You can’t just……..trick it into happening.
Men by nature jump up and down and yell. Ya gotta remember that for the last ten thousand years, we’ve been getting up at dawn and going out to kill dinner. All those characteristics we bring home when the hunt is over.
I was at the gym and this girl brought her two kids….. a son and a daughter.…every thirty seconds she was chastising the son for climbing around on things and the daughter just sat in the corner. She said “I wish he was as good as her” as she yanked him around the gym. FAIL. Five hundred years ago he would be out with his dad……tracking down dinner all day…not sitting in a chair. That is NOT his nature. At no point in time did a native Indian dad say “son……..sit on this rock for the next SIX hours and be still……and pay attention to the old lady over there talking about foreign policy and atomic structure……..we’re gonna do this every day this week….and at the end of the week Im gonna test you on what you remember.” FAIL X2 Boys like to throw rocks…We’re good at it… ....cut us some slack please. We're wired differently and its important for you to understand why we do what we do....Just like you really wish he would get that you sometimes just want to be held....
I will admit we still need your help. What we need your help with is how to bring you the relationship you want. I hear women criticize men all day long about how stupid we are. I gotta tell ya…. I NEVER hear a guy complain that women throw rocks like a girl. Do you?
Just for the record….I am NOT doing the online dating thing. I set up a profile just to let my beautiful followers know…….. I’m better off in this town by myself……..

You never count your money when you're sittin' at the table.
There'll be time enough for countin' when the dealin's done.

Bring it………. Bring some good luck………Life is tough on people these days. And for some it’s probably a comfort to smoke, or eat, or sit on the couch to get through the tough times. I think that’s an empty solution. You wouldn’t want your man to run to a bottle or spend your paycheck on some heroin would you? The good times are easy. It’s the hard times that test you. Yeah Trey, You’re a sooooper genius…..I guess my point is its important to measure your man by how he acts when times are tough. That will tell you something important about his character. It’s hard to feel safe around a loose cannon I should think…….. I don’t mind the downtime…… I would rather wait for my luck to change rather than place a bad bet. Maybe I should take up……...strip poker. You know what they say…….. unlucky at cards……

Well said my friend. As a woman who has been on several online dates recently where I ended up asking myself why I had wasted the make up....I'd rather just wait for my luck to change.

I love this post. The whole entire thing. But especially the part about the measure of a man being how he acts when times are tough. So right, my friend, SO RIGHT.

BTW, i'm going to send you an offline email about a book I want to write. I think I need your input for a few pieces of it.

Bombshell BLISS said...

Hey Trey,

Got some blogger love for you....go check it out.

Just telling it like it is said...

I hear ya...Now what I would like to know is why is that girl in her underwear taking pictures for a online dating site...sounds fishy to me....From a girl that just broke off a relationship 10 mo. ago I can tell you that love will happen again...You might not know where it is coming from but it will happen...Your a good man I can certainly see that ...feel it thought your voice...

I've never given my body to someone that didn't love me...If I gave it to them before they knew that they loved me I knew that they would love me...Chemistry is funny sometimes...but I know this...It is the strongest men that survive and pass on their genetics...survival of the fittest!!From what I can see your pretty fit!!!

f1trey said...

@ Bombshell- thank you so very much!!! give me a day or two to put something together!

@ Just- yeah the whole lot is scary!!!hehehehe its deflating lemme tell ya!! youre lucky! I like your love policy!!

Online dating isn't all that bad. I actually met Joe on Craigslist of all places. I placed ONE ad on there without a picture and got like 80 hits in 2 days. I went out on 2 dates with some really nice, but really misrepresented by their pictures, guys. Then I got Joe's email. It was really weird because as I read what he wrote, I was like, "This is the one!" Not THE ONE, but the one I'm probably going to really hit it off with. Then I saw his picture and was even more happy. Now I realize that he really IS "THE ONE"!

But after reading so many bad stories from other people, I'm starting to think that finding love online is the exception, not the rule. Guess I got lucky with my hand in online dating.

I would gladly give you lessons in poker (clothed that is) because I'm pretty damn good at Texas Hold'em. My ex and I used to play all the time. I won $1500 in a 27 person tournament with only 2 women. (yeah, I'm bragging)

And that collage of pictures?? Just a damn shame. The one in the top left corner....is she even 18? You need to move. Come up the state to Northern Virginia (that's where I live) and you'll have better luck. I mean, most people around here have their teeth. =)

I love that song, too!! Every time I play poker I sing that song in my head when I'm having a tough decision!

I think the choice really depends on the person. One part of me feels like I have to be the one to fish through emails and look at profiles and go on a online dating that I choose because no one knows me better than I do. But another part of me would prefer an expert to match me up with someone and possibly eliminate those people I will not connect with. Maybe someday I will try both to see which works better.
