Dating Women and Dating Games, Part 02 8

Dating Women and Dating Games

This is the second installment chronicling my experiences from dating women and dating games women play. Some friends laugh at my use of “experiences”, instead referring to them as “war stories”. Read the first if you need to get caught up.

Let’s start on Common Ground

There’s an invisible threshold most of us cross at some stage in life where we decide we want a partner who’s both reliable and dependable. The kind that when they say they will be somewhere or will do something, they actually follow through.

Right now I bet more women than men are nodding their heads in agreement, which makes this experience so ironic.

In the beginning…

I met “Sara” at a friend’s party. Having got on really well, we made plans to catch up again within a few days.

A few days rolled around, and Sara called about 10 minutes after we were supposed to meet. I was expecting her to let me know she was running a tad bit late.

I couldn’t have been more wrong.

Instead, she phoned to let me know she was cancelling. As if she didn’t know this 20 minutes earlier?

Start the game play

When it came time to meet Sara the second time around, she phoned an hour beforehand to let me know that she’d be unable to make it (at least it was before this time instead of after. An improvement?), asking if we can postpone until later in the evening as she was late with some errands.

Whelp, the evening rolled around, and (who didn’t see this coming?) she cancelled again 5 minutes before via text message.

The Bitch Slap

When Sara called me the next day asking to reschedule, in a straight, monotone voice I said:

“No thank you. I already have enough flakes in my cereal.”

To all my readers, commit that line to memory and use it when appropriate. It’s the ultimate bitch-slap on someone that treats you in a similar manner they just simply do not know how to respond to.

Anyway, Sara wasn’t too happy about that crack. I didn’t care. She was obviously playing dating games. I’m not.


The Irony of it all?

She’s probably telling her friends I’m the game player.

Where are the women who aren’t?

Am I too picky for wanting someone who’s reliable and dependable?

    Good for you! It seems that the older I get, the more flaky people I find. How hard is it to be where you say you’re going to be?

      Exactly. And if she’s this bad now, I don’t want to know what she would have been like in an actual relationship.

    Holy heck! This whole time I thought I was the only one who:

    A – has dated every cereal in the breakfast isle.
    B – feels like the only normal person in the world and there is a huge possibility in living by myself for ever based on past dating experiences.
    C – has many fruity dating stories to entertain the couples.

    Thank you for your blog… In which I stumbled across in a research mission to google my actual chances of finding a soul mate in my 30s…(research for something I am writing… Not just out of interest… Ha! Well… Maybe.)

    You have reassured me I am not special in my experiences… It’s a crazy world out there… We have just got to kiss a few frogs (and in some cases some toads) until the day there are no frogs or toads left… Just our person.

    I will add, however, it will be interesting to see how long your blog lasts. My hopes it doesn’t last long as that would mean there is hope for all of us and you found your person. Like the scene from Toy Story where one of the three eyed aliens from the game of skill gets chosen… The rest of us single folk will take a moment to dream of the day it’s our turn. Ha!

    Glad I stumbled onto your blog …

      Well, this could be the start of something special Becca since we seem to have at least one thing in common. 😉

      My hopes it doesn’t last long as that would mean there is hope for all of us and you found your person.


      Another entry, Part 04, has been posted, so it’s not over yet. But with each post it brings me that much closer to “the one” and hopefully you too.

    I can only laugh at this, HAHAHA

      You and everyone else. *rolls eyes* Friends loved getting together over drinks or something about once a month to get caught up on my latest dating experiences. Those catch ups were good times.

  • Heidi

    I’m having the same issues with men.

    • Dave

      I’m sorry to hear. Isn’t it annoying when people are so discourteous? Hopefully from such experiences you appreciate the ones even more who actually walk-the-walk after talking-the-talk?
