A Plan

From here,

I truly don’t know how to date anymore. There are two dimensions to this. The first: I don’t know how to physically continue. At this stage in my single life, I recoil at the idea of showering, putting on makeup, picking out an outfit, and blow drying my hair even onemore time in order to meet up with a name in my phone. Like you could ask me to do it right now and I would literally charge a fee.

But would anybody be willing to pay?  At least she can get dates.  Lots of should be acceptable fellas really can’t.  Making herself look good is just too much work.  Men need to work hard and have something to show for it to even have a chance to get on a woman’s radar.

I’ve probably gone on a first date over a hundred times, and I don’t think I have anything left to give to that effort. I have earned my bitterness merit badge and no one will take it from me. The money I’ve spent on wines by the glass over 11 years is a down payment by now, so don’t talk to me about staying motivated to conduct two hours worth of small talk over stale Sancerre with a guy I’ll never see again. Wait, that’s not right — I’m definitely going to see him walking down Park Avenue in seven months and avoid his gaze at all costs.

She has had lots of first dates.  She admits that they go south fast.  There seems to be a pattern here.  Perhaps it might be fruitful for her to analyze what is happening.

It’s the fact that he’s a stranger. I don’t know this person, we haven’t sparked yet, not in real life, anyway. There’s nothing really there to dive me toward excitement, and it’s that palpable lack compounded over 11 years of dating that leaves me feeling so empty. It’s not that I’ve been meeting terrible men (though…girl), it’s really more about the fact that dating for me has held such an absence of excitement, fun, and actual desire that I truly no longer see it as a valid use of my time.

Here we go.  She demands excitement, fun, etc.  This is almost assuredly on top of fitness, financial and otherwise.  Emily Hart was like that.  She ended up freezing her eggs and parading a boyfriend that met hardly anything on her checklist around.

Let’s face it; grandma didn’t have this approach.  She also didn’t have this resulting problem.

And spare me about sparking online. I’ve done this dance too many times to fall for a witty text or two, I can promise you that. The girl he sits next to in his open office floor plan thinks he’s suuuuch a great guy even though she herself isn’t attracted to him and shewrote that adorable message to help him out because he has the wit of a dusty box fan. Honestly, don’t fuck with me.

It would seem that she is complaining about fellas not being sexy enough to meet the Manhattan Girl’s needs, either other women’s, or hers.

These girls seem to put a premium on witty stuff.  I suppose they get what they get what they deserve.

As for the don’t fuck with me, that seems not to be a general problem in this case.

I’m apparently very old fashioned for wanting dates to look the way they did in My Big Fat Greek Wedding. Now, dating is apparently a much more casual endeavor, so casual in fact I find it hard to find the line between dating and simply having a pulse. I shared a subway pole with a guy yesterday, was that a date? A woman gave me free Amaro when she brought me my check at a bar two nights ago, are we married now?

She wants it to be about her.  She wants it well defined.  One might suggest that as women demanded more of everything be about her, men responded by making the whole dance more undefined.  Just a thought.

The end result is I really don’t date much anymore. That’s supposed to be scary, right? If I don’t participate in dating, how am I ever going to meet someone? I have to be honest and say it isn’t scary, it’s a relief. The absence of the inherent negativity involved in modern dating has left me feeling fucking fantastic.

Obviously she wants to meet that special someone, just like Emily Hart.  This is a different response.  Will it last?  Will it make her happy long term?

I’ve been told the way I speak and write about dating comes across as if I think I’m going to be single forever, and my bad — that’s not the way I feel. I feel with 100% of myself that I will love and be loved by an actual human man one day. But I also feel that my path to meeting him has very little to do with an awkward hug hello, two glasses of wine in Williamsburg, and three repetitions of how to pronounce my name.

Perhaps she might question her approach.  Just saying.

I don’t know how to date anymore, so I’ve stopped doing it. I don’t think that curses me, I think it frees me. I think I’ve cracked it. My very participation in my own singleness has morphed into something that contains much less pressure and senseless effort than it used to, and I’m into it. I don’t know how I’ll meet someone, but I know how I won’t meet someone, and opening up my view of possibility from only being able to meet via dating to meeting via literally any possibility imaginable puts the excitement of being single right back where I want it — within me.

So it comes back around to her.

Does the above look like a plan?  Is it better than Emily Hart’s plan?

    thinking of Kelly now … and the pic of The Queen … The Queen looks so much more youthful and beautiful than Kelly. feminine. gentle – not weak.

    just b/c we hit the wall doesn’t mean we have to crash. we can climb over it gently and move forward with grace, dignity, gentleness, femininity. it’s about accepting who we are and being content and confident in who we are as a woman our age.

    regret and guilt are a part of life … but when one has lived a harsh life chasing after crazy things … and/or trying to prove they are not who they are – trying to best men in a supposedly ‘man’s world,’ – it just makes one unattractive from the inside out. bitterness has taken root and grown and poisoned the soul.

    my late Mentor was in her early 70’s when she passed. i didn’t meet her till a few years earlier, so idk how attractive she was when she was younger. but she exercised regularly, invested herself in younger women, and gave of her heart generously. her eyes literally twinkled with life, and her smile drew one to her. i know her life wasn’t easy, but she had found a way to accept what it was and to move forward with grace. it made her beautiful.

    when we’re younger we can get away with a beautiful body, if we’re so gifted, but as we pass the wall, we need to have developed something deeper ~ a beauty of the heart and soul which radiates through our eyes, smile, face, and whole being.

    From Aaron Clarey, Adam’s blog quote, from a writeup about “the youth not knowing the value of money”:
    don’t get Patreon.
    Oh, I understand how it works. I have an account. I even make some decent beer money off of it monthly. But I do not philosophically understand how it’s even a success. The reason why is a simple economic principle my brain just can’t ignore – you’re paying for nothing. You get nothing in return. It is true charity and cannot possibly benefit you except for perhaps the warm fuzzies that come from helping out somebody you endorse.

    I lived in Las Vegas (the first time) before internet shopping was a thing. It was an education going to a casino. They’d keep the lights on all night so it was harder to tell what time it was, and 3 AM was just like 3PM. They took your cash and handed you chips, so there was less of an association with money and more an association with “play”. Lots of flashy entertainment going on to distract, and free drinks to keep you there.
    Kind of similar to what the internet does just by design.

    the movie came out in 1986. 1986 was the year i married my first Husband … shortly after our wedding he had to take care of his aging grandparents, and then his grandfather died. his parents were overseas, and he had to take care of all the details then take care of his widowed grandmother. my sister went thru a severe crisis causing us to drive from texas to florida for a quick trip to help. then our friend’s wife died tragically (it truly was terribly tragic and horrible and all the bad things). in the wake of all that, we went with a group to see Top Gun, which included our friend. he had already seen the movie once and left before the death scene, then quietly returned after it was over.

    every time i see bits and pieces of the movie, all of that year is a part of it.

    Yeah. They tried to train them to get used to thinking quickly in high stress situations. Also during the debrief they were brutal (this remains the case…rank doesn’t matter everyone is honest about their screwups, the only way to improve).

    Homan noted that, while he did not write the policy, he had made “numerous recommendations” to Homeland Security, including implementing a “zero tolerance” policy for illegal border crossers.

    “Which includes family separation,” Ocasio-Cortez interrupted.

    “The same as it is with every U.S. citizen,” Homan shot back. “Parent [who] gets arrested with a child.”

    After a brief pause, a seemingly rattled Ocasio-Cortez said, “Zero tolerance was interpreted as the policy that separated the children from their parents.”

    “If I get arrested for DUI and I have a young child in the car I’m gonna be separated,” Homan said. “When I was a police officer in New York and I arrested a father for domestic violence, I separated that father from his family.”

    “Mr. Homan, with all due respect, legal asylees are not charged with any crime,” said the congresswoman.

    But Homan was ready, with a specific U.S. code no less: “When you’re in this country illegally, it’s violation 8, United States Code 1325.”

    So, the columnists all believe that the best way to deal with the problem of sexual harassment in the workplace is to shower men with contempt, to goad them, to ridicule and to mock them. Faced with such hostility, most men know better than to retaliate. But some do not.Forget about sex for a minute– I know it’s difficult, but at least try– and ask yourself whether you, male or female, would want to work with human beings, of either gender, who indulge in such adolescent behavior.

    That is, who believe that the best way to diminish sexual harassment is to foster a hostile cultural environment where men are treated with contempt.Introducing such hostility makes certain people appear to be untrustworthy. It makes them appear to have a cultural agenda, beyond their commitment to the company. If they are demeaning their male colleagues they cannot at the same time be showing themselves willing to work together on projects.

    Respecting other people precludes treating them with contempt. I hope that this is not the first time you have heard that.

    Obligatory gloss on the OP:

    If this chick has been on “100 [failed] first dates” she a) uses a 10 year-old headshot; b) she’s 5’2″ 160 lbs. And/or her literary personality is what she carries into real life. My guess is she’s 3/3.

    She stipulates that she’s had 100 bad dates, which is to say, she’s gone out with 100 strangers who were wasting her time. A more reflective person might ask, “Why did 100 men think I was wasting their time?”

    Feminists need to take a play from the tranny playbook: Men who don’t want want to date trans-women (men who dress as women; or, “women” with dicks) are bigots committing bigotry. So, men who don’t want to make short, fat, dumb females feel good about themselves are bigots, redolent of hate speech. Then the social media apparatchiks can ban them, those mean boys. They can’t, though. It will kill every dating site on the net.


    tldr version: I never met any man who didn’t date for companionship, who didn’t seek companionship, who hadn’t lost his illusions after the addressable market of females was in their 30’s.

    Once he got the NVGs off, it was okay. He wasn’t able to do it until he got out of the maneuver(s) (which were pretty dicey).
    For background context, this was during the testing phase of the F22 and they were trying out something new. I’m not even sure they use NVGs for the F22 anymore.

    I would be able, however, to perform my marital duties if married to Kidman — which he declined to do. That’s a weird guy.

    The riotous counterculturalists of the Sixties and Seventies demanded freedom. They didn’t give a damn what the ‘moral majority’ thought of them — they just wanted the moral majority to leave them alone.

    Fast forward to 2019, and that historic human instinct to be left alone in liberty has been replaced by a needy and therapeutic politics of recognition. Now gay-rights activists don’t demand autonomy — they want validation. Everyone has to wave their flag and celebrate their lifestyle and embrace the strange new idea that trans women are literally women, and if you don’t it’s off to the metaphorical gulag with you.

    It’s no longer enough to leave homosexuals alone to live however they choose and to inflict on them no persecution or discrimination or any ill-will whatsoever on the basis of their sexuality, which is absolutely the right thing for a civilised liberal society to do. No, now you have to validate their identity and cheer their life choices

    But I suspect that very few Insapundit readers make it a point of skipping action movies with female leads but were too afraid of internet disapproval to express their cinematic preference.

    On the cultural differences, Japan v. USA, that influenced the successful outcome at Midway. VD Hanson:


    I’ve always been stunned by the Devastator pilots. They were flying obsolete pigs that floated along at about 100 knots until the Japs had finished with the turkey shoot. They knew they were dead men. None bugged out.

    English historian John Keegan, like Hanson, sought cultural keys to decisive military success, eschewing the Clausewitz cliche that war was simply “politics by other means.” Keegan called Midway the most remarkable, decisive naval battle in human history: “the most stunning and decisive blow in the history of naval warfare”. Rather a notable comment, for an Englishman (I’ve heard that they’ve launched a reasonably effective Navy, from time to time), much less an historian of all wars beginning with the Greeks.

    I’m extremely fond of Keegan’s “The Mask of Command”, a study of military leadership, which, for me, was simply a study of leadership. His section on U.S. Grant (“Unheroic Leadership”) changed how I tried to do my job. For the Commonwealth, there is an excellent section on Wellington.

    Happy Sunday. It’s hotter than hell where I am, but Nicole Kidman remains hotter!

    This woman simply wasted her life. She believed all of the modern feminist woke lies and as a result she was a train wreck. I genuinely feel sorry for her, I really do. She was a beautiful woman. Imagine if she had found a suitable man when she was in her early twenties and she had become a wife and mother with a home full of lovely children. Instead she had reached the age of 35 and pink dildos on television. Her brief life should be a warning to young women everywhere of what not to do.
