semi-related, i've considered getting a keychain breathalyzer just for personal use.
I'd decided to disable or delete my OKCupid profile but now all of a sudden a lot of guys are sending me messages.
Of course, they're all total cheesedick messages that make me wish I could punch someone through the internet.
I've heard that in some states you will not get a DUI for being in your backseat, though I don't know if that's actually true. Being asleep in the driver's seat is definitely an issue though.

Yes, I agree it's lazy, but I consider myself pretty social, but I never meet new guys.
I realized at some point that there have only been 3 or 4 guys that I've slept with who were people I met with the intention of dating or sleeping with them. The rest were all friends. When I go out, I hang out with my friends, or I meet guys, but they're guys that become friends. So, I don't know, the dating website stuff is lazy, but at least when I meet those guys I'm doing it with clear intentions to date or to at least get laid.
I find that my busy social life is making the dating thing even more difficult. Boys get mad if you tell them you have to cancel a date because your girlfriend called and needs to hang out. Then they expect to be invited to come hang out with me and my friends... umm no, I don't even know you.
It really sounds like you date children.
"Hey, I can't make it one of my friends needs a hangout."
"No panic, want to hang out after or maybe tomorrow?"
I know, I am finding myself liking the idea of not dating more and more, because the options around here are just not good. Although, I don't want to be like those older women I know who just have no interest in men. I have worked with ladies like that, and they seem very bitter and angry and they eventually buy many cats. I don't like cats.
Ok, maybe they're right? But damn, I guess that stuff is just not my style. My whole (albeit short) online dating experience left a really sour taste in my mouth. I didn't like ANY of the women/girls I was coming across (whether it be through emailing, texting, calling, meeting, fucking). I do admit, I did fall for one of them, but she turned out to be a massive fail, and maybe that was because of me, I'll never know.
But most importantly, I didn't like how I felt while interacting with the whole online dating game. I felt like just another cheesedick among all the other cheesedicks.
Maybe I am a cheesedick.
Hey lets go out.
Forget it, I can't keep to my commitments, plus my friend invited me somewhere better.
May not be something to get mad about, but don't pretend you're the more mature person.
My girlfriends helped me through a pretty tough time recently, so yes, if they call and need me they will always come first. If I know someone for a good period of time, then they are more than welcome to join me, but a first date with someone I don't know will not take priority over family or friends. If a guy can't understand that then no, he isn't someone I want or need in my life.
Although, I will admit that it takes quite awhile for me to feel comfortable enough with someone to bring him into my social group.
I know what he means, I am just not sure anyone ever truly grows up. We all have some insecurities that make us appear childish. You all are functioning adults and claim to be grown ups, yet you start fights with strangers on the internet. I find that to be somewhat childish, does it make me like you any less, nope. I just accept it as who you all are.
