According the comments on this humiliating post there is nothing wrong with an irrational seven year pining for someone nearly three times my age and married with grandkids, no, the problem is that I am not dating.
Some people practically berated me, calling me a lonely actor hating workaholic whore. Or something. I need to re-read that comment. Other people are far more trusting than me and think that casual dating doesn't involve promises or expectations. This gentleman was surprisingly candid and sweet. At first this gal said go for it but then she noticed that he is married and retracted her statement in another comment. This person commented again though I really can't recall what she said as I was too busy cowering in fear about her first comment where, and I am paraphrasing here, she called me a fat ugly pathetic loser and told me she is surprised that anyone has ever shown interest in me and I should just jump off a bridge to make the world a better place. Dude! Why is the internet so full of haters? Finally, this intimidating guy tried to scare the stupid crush out of me and it almost worked too, except it is hard to take a guy who works his balls into every post he writes seriously.
The overall impression I got (Sally, you know I'm just messing with you) is that I should be dating. Now. Ten minutes ago! Get thee out and get a free meal! Then tell the internet about it! So that the internet can be entertained! Because the majority of the comments came from people who are happily married! FINE. Just for you, because I cave to peer pressure, I'll make it my goal to go out on at least one date in the next two weeks. You happy? You, Maya, who wants to see me suffer? And you, Hollowquirrel, who wants me to have to crawl out a bathroom window in a restaurant to escape the company of a crazy man? FINE FINE FINE.
I promise that I'll go out with the next guy that asks me. So long as he doesn't work with my ex, isn't married, and has never been in jail. Well, not to jail for something really bad. If he went to jail for a peaceful protest or something that is okay. Actually, if one of the commenters would volunteer to do background checks on any guy I decide is okay for a first date then that would be cool. Just not Sally, I think she has it out for me.
A coworker just expressed serious interest in a date about thirty seconds ago. Buah hah hahhhhhhh I love how my life rolls. Sorry though, I have to add no coworkers to my qualifications, it just wouldn't be prudent.
