It seems like there is a list of dating experiences that everyone has to go through at least once. Some good, some bad, and all at least leave you with a story.
With regards to dating that list could include:
- a bad blind date
- a good blind date
- a date who is more interested in you than you are in him
- a date who's less interested in you than you are in him
- a rebound
- a date who dumps you
- a date you dump
- and a date that you really should've listened to what everyone was saying and left alone
And yup, I can cross all of those off my list, at least once.
With regards to that last one, I don't even think a bad-ex tracking system would work.
Because it seems like even if we did get a warning that specific, we wouldn't listen. I've had guys that I got plenty of warning about, either from friends or even my own gut. Luckily I did manage to listen before too long. But if they ever do start up that tracking system, let me know, I have a few to add.
What other types of "dates" would you add to the list? The Art of Manliness had a list a while back of The Taxonomy of Lousy Male Friends. We could probably add those guys to the list as well. And I dated a few of them too.
