will I ever learn...

... I should really stop telling potential suitors and dates I have a blog. At least not until I have completely won them over.

I should also probably tone down the conservative political rantings and government conspiracy theories too, at least until the fourth or fifth date. And maybe leave out the time[s] I was almost arrested, or the time I shaved my head.

I can't help it. I get nervous. And babble. And drink. And babble some more.

Lovely Rita, pray for me, an impossible cause.

What else are you going to talk about?

The weather?



Maybe you should have a mock-tail. Keep your head clear and eyes wide open until that 4th or 5th date.

just be yourself, dear.
Yeah, be yourself.
That's enough.
If it scares 'em away, good enough.

Babbling beats jumping in the hay with him, doncha know!

If the guy doesn't find you enchanting that means he's a clod and you wouldn't want him anyway.

My first "date" with my husband I ate an entire pizza (extra large) all by myself and managed to talk the entire time.

He was instantly smitten! That was close to 30 years ago. Have patience...

oooops - close to 35 years ago.

I echo Adrienne: "If the guy doesn't find you enchanting that means he's a clod and you wouldn't want him anyway." Just be yourself!! Best wishes and prayers!

If your blog isn't a selling point you don't want to marry him anyway. I'm a big fan of full disclosure early on, especially when it comes to "sense of humor". If he doesn't find you funny now he certainly won't laugh later. A marriage without laughter is worse than one without s-x.

Are you the only normal one out east? Up north we'd be carrying you around on the sedia gestatoria. Maybe ask Father Vasiliy for advise?

I did the same thing on first dates. Yes, it scares away suitors, but then one day, after your diatribe, there will be one who not only shares your ideals and morals, he stays and calls for a second date. I have been married to him for over seven years, and he still calls our first date, our worst date!!! Why waste your time looking for wheat amongst the chaff? Don't change what you are doing- you are doing the right thing.

On the contrary it saves you wasting time on unsuitable matches for you.
