Dating Women and Dating Games
I’m going to share some of my experiences from dating women and dating games encountered. Those of us who are single are typically surrounded by friends who are attached or have families. They laugh at our experiences, and it almost always invariably comes back to us that we’re “too picky”.
Has anybody else noticed how anyone who’s 30-plus and single is “too picky”? It’s not like the person we were out with has green eyes as opposed to brown eyes. Oh no. Because then we would be “too shallow”.
I came to Australia excited at the possibility to finding a bride-to-be. If Frederik, Crown Prince of Denmark can find Princess Mary in Australia, I should be able to find such a woman. Plus I wouldn’t force her to renounce her citizenship or learn a new language – I’d actually prefer it if she speaks English.
Common Dating Games
Alas, what I’ve experienced is the significant amount of women in Australia who are far too dependent upon game playing than I could have ever imagined! Mind you I am not saying all women; I just seem to have had more than my fair share.
What do I mean by games? Not your basic run-of-the-mill, “wait 2 days before returning his call”.
I’m talking about games where:
- women cancel on you at the last minute numerous times. It’s almost like they have a betting club going on – let’s see who can cancel the latest the most.
- they tell you on a date they would love to see you again, but then shortly after send a text message saying they don’t want to see you again
- you’re having a nice time with them on a date and the woman says she really isn’t over her last boyfriend, but needs to find someone to settle with because her biological clock is ticking.
Some people say I am too picky, but those same people are usually the ones in relationships who have no idea what it’s actually like out in today’s dating world. Several friends have reiterated to me over and over that I should write a book chronicling my more … *ahem* … “hilariously outrageous adventures” … to let you decide.
Let the Games Begin! Roll the Dice!
“Kathy” I met on online, and then in person a week later. It was during this date where it came out in conversation, “By the way, I’m going overseas for at least 8 months — leaving in two weeks.”
I blinked as I thought, “then why are you looking to meet local men? Can I invoice you for the cost of contacting you?”
Who would want to date someone, if you can really call it that, who’s leaving to go overseas for at least 8 months? Am I too picky for wanting someone who will actually be local and available to date?
Maybe I am and that was my mistake, because by the time you read this, it’s over 8 months later, and well… here I am writing a blog. 🙂
