A little bit of This "n" That

The Singleton


This time last year I was in a Relationship.

Six months later I was turning Thirty thinking my world was ending and I was single.
Another six months on I’m still single, with a few hiccups in between (Actually they may have been bordeline of burps) BUT its ok.

The thing that isn’t ok is that the rest of my single friends seem to be dropping like flies.
Seriously, someone got a human version of Mortein (otherwise known as MAN) sprayed it around a bit and whacked a few of the coolest single chick friends I have smack bang around the head.

I may have been a contributing factor – Yes, if you have single chick friends you also have single bloke friends and inevitably they will meet each other and they will end up seeing each other.
But suddenly you end up having them grouped into the same classification as the other friends who are in relationships or are married or have kids. You end up only seeing them when they are together, this limits the conversations that you would normally have and also limits what you used to do.
No more hanging out down the pub checking out that cute dude’s butt when he walks past or having a good wingwoman to deal with “The Friend” whilst you talk to the one that is actually interesting. A Girl’s night becomes overshadowed with text messages and phonecalls to the significant other and the 4am’ers turn into “Shit its Twelve O’clock, I need to go home”.

Dont get me wrong, Im extremely happy for these ladies – more so for the fact that they deserve the happiness because of the shit they’ve been put through from previous dickheads who cant even be put into the classification of “Being a Man”.

But I go through a spate in time when I miss that. When I moved back from the UK, I had to rebuild my life get to know people again and start anew, those people then continued with the circle of life got married and started breeding, so I had to find more people to hang with, now that circle is beginning again and Im onto my third cycle.

Im trying to work out if its because Im super picky (Which to be honest, from recent experiences I really have dropped my game) or demand too much.
I like to think Im a pretty good catch, I can cook, clean, I like to watch a good game of Rugby, AFL and Football ( Soccer to those of you who are sport inept), I can handle a drink or two, Im well travelled, I have a rather ace job and the best bit …. Im a good spooner.

Then again I think I may just be having too much of a good time and the possibility of falling into that circle hasn’t been able to interject itself into my daily planner.

I know good things come to those who wait, for the meantime I’ll wait for it to come to me whilst I sip my red wine, don my Uggs and convert my verbal diarrhoea to this blog.

Love It When You Call


Far Out. I thought Last week I was slightly Confuzzled.

But this week I appear to have just no clue as to what on earth is going on at all.

I’ve come to the conclusion that you men are seriously on a different planet.

 While I was handing out fliers last week at a local pub, I quite happily conversed with whomever wanted to take the time to have a chat, find out about the band I was promoting and also anything else either they or I had to say that was interesting to talk about.

I got talking to three guys who were very funny, amusing and chatty. Their ages varied from 24 – 32 and from what I could gather they were all very good mates.

We came to a point of discussing from their point of view, “Why do women make it difficult for men to ask them out or even give them a look in.”

 My reply was this.

From a woman’s point of view you are not necessarily the reason why they won’t give you their number or go out with you. Most women have totally good reasons for saying “No.”

These could consist of the following:

  1. They have a Boyfriend
  2. They are Married
  3. They have a Girlfriend
  4. They have just come out of a rather traumatic relationship and a man is the last thing they need right now.
  5. They are out on a girls night where they just aren’t entering the idea of wanting to talk to men, and that’s any men not just you. (And no, this does not make said women a lesbian)

Mainly, the only reason they are going to say “No”, to you because its you, is due to either the fact you forgot that the mullet went out of fashion decades ago or you think that B.O. is a newly branded format of Aftershave that is socially acceptable.

Generally women are super flattered if a guy takes the time to talk to her, ask for her number and then follow-up by taking her out. When I say taking her out I don’t mean a call “Yo! I’m at the pub with a group of mates, Wanna Hang?” You will get a no. This is an unacceptable first date format.

 My biggest Bug bear about Men and their attempt to “Date” Women  are those that let the side down, the ones who talk the talk, but can’t walk the walk, All talk and No action seems to play a big part these days – well this is what my current experiences have had to endure.

Guys, don’t ask a girl for her number if you have absolutely no intention of calling her. Or don’t ask for it, make contact and then fizzle out after a week because you are a lazy arse and can’t be bothered in following through with your first intentions. This is just super uncool.

By doing the above you are actually giving the Brotherhood of Man a bad name. It means us lady folk will be more protective of giving out our didgets because we will just assume that you all will NEVER CALL us back.

Also DO NOT SEND TEXT MESSAGES !

Be chivalrous, call the woman. If I get a call from a guy this is good news. It means he actually wants to talk to me and take the time out from whatever he is doing to give me the undivided attention that a phone call ensues.

Seriously a text message, this requires no effort or thought and as far as I know you could be sending it from the crapper.

Enough about me telling boys about what they should and shouldnt be doing , I actually jumped on here today to give you the lowdown about what happened with the dates

So on that basis, I can now tell you this.

Mr Pilot  – Has had no contact in a week. But I’m down with that, I always said if it happens it happens. Even if I am slightly disappointed that I didn’t get to join the Mile High Club

Mr High School He has seemingly disappeared off the face of the Earth, After having contact just about everyday, I haven’t heard from him in a week.

 Mr 22.  – Ah, Yes forgot to tell you about this one – Lets just say when I met him by no means did he look 22. (This for reference DOES NOT make me a Cougar). I placed him as a Black Book entry in my phone. Unfortunately he’s doesn’t get the idea that this whole Black Book entry thingymajig means ‘You don’t contact me EVERY DAY.’ And before you accuse me of being like some of the male species out there, he knew what the story was to begin with. Now he has turned into a bit of a puppy dog.

 But hey, It’s a new weekend, I’m headed to my Favourite drinking establishment this evening you never know what will happen .
