Couldn't have said it better myself

(If only sound worked on this!)
This dating game is ruthless! And tiring. And expensive.
It's been a fun summer, but seriously, where is he?
There have been a few candidates along the way, let's recap:
  • The weirdo with the bag of chocolates keeping warm in his pocket that he produced as a gift for me (weird, but they were Lindt so . .  .)
  • The dude with the lisp who was so lovely but reminded me far too much of my brother (so pashing was way out of the question)
  • The English guy who liked long {awkward} pauses and wore sneakers with socks
  • The catch of the year who I never met even after four weeks of texting (I'm starting to think he never existed - just call me Casey Donovan)
  • The dude who drank coffee, and only coffee - look, I like coffee but I'm so much more charming and witty and gorgeous after a few vinos
  • And most recently, the perfect guy (sigh) who turned out to be the biggest turd in the world (insert expletives here)
I even looked this up this morning, out of pure desperation, but my mother would kill me.
The time has come to turn to the sisterhood - surely you must have wonderful, eligible, charming male friends out there?
My friends are having their first 'Bring a Friend Friday' drinks at The Carlton this Friday in the city, and I invite you to a) come along and b) bring a delightful male guest! We're all new to Melbourne and are keen to broaden our friendship group - it's very Adelaide centric at the moment an it's time to adopt new peeps to the fold!
There will be other singles there (that's the good thing about this city, I'm not the only one!) and it's sure to be fun. Beats sitting on the couch on your own eating a whole block of chocolate and watching online episodes of Real Housewives of Melbourne (because that's not what I did at all last Friday night . . .)
Let's talk, friends!
PS. How GOOD is Real Housewives of Melbourne!? #carcrashtv #loveit
And here my friends, is the extended clip . . .

The Casey Donovan comment...hahaha...you may have met a few duds lately but at least you have still kept your sense of humour! When he does eventually show his face he will get a good chuckle at what you had to go through to get to him! Xx jb

You are so refreshingly real! Plus You can insert video clip and so this makes you incredibly smart. The dudes will be lining up on Friday night! Bring your stick .. And get a blow dry!


Lill said...

My fav is the bag of chocolates. Great post, Elliott.

Kate said...

You are funny JB! The term 'dud' doesn't even start to describe these bozos xx

Kate said...

T - I did my hair especially today, quite a bit of volume and bounce if I do say so myself! Thank goodness it's stopped raining. There will be no need for a stick, I wouldn't dare shoo anyone away #comeandgetmeboys

It was so awkward, Lill. I mean, Lindt balls have gooey centres at the best of times, but after an hour or so warming up in the jeans pockets (no actually, I think they were cargo pants. Noice) of a nervous kiwi, they were a liquid mess. Oh well, my housemate and I enjoyed them all the same!

Just Like Martha said...

Ooooh hang in there but DON'T settle for nothing less than FABULOUS!

Now look, I'm *just* putting this out there but do you think perhaps you are placing WAY too much emphasis on finding a man/husband?

It's exhausting if that's where you direct all your energy and can get incredibly heavy for men if you pin all your expectations on them.

I promise you enjoying your life and not being so hooked on finding someone to complete you is much, much nicer and lighter.

Thanks for stopping by to comment Incense & Happiness. I'm not sure if you're a regular, but this blog post is pretty typical of me and my sense of humour. I lead a very fulfilling independent and fun life and happen to think that sharing that with someone else would be kind of cool. I have a lot of energy and let me assure you, not all of it is directed on finding a man. But I believe in taking life by the balls and working for what you want. And yes, I want a boyfriend. But don't get me wrong, I don't need one. I am not weighed down with "being hooked on finding someone". It's just a bit of comic relief!
