- Coworker: Here, let me give you my recipe for iced tea, it's really good. (She claims to be from Tennessee, by the way)
- Me: ::eyebrow arched::
- Coworker: It's just three family size Luzianne teabags, one gallon of water, 3/4 cup sugar and some cloves...
- Me: ::stops listening::
- Obviously her Southern girl cred has been revoked. The only thing we add to iced tea is bourbon or lemons.
I’ve found (and been found by) a bunch of tumblrs who have the same goal as I do - sign up on OkCupid and pretend to seriously date while really just mocking other people’s profiles. And life choices.
Part of me wants to make a everyone’s best posts with the text:
We’re just here to make fun of you.
Let’s be honest - it’s true.
I was walking to work on random morning when it hit me. I’ve explain previously that I tend to begin to think negatively about myself when I start dating someone new. I begin to focus on who I’m not, and how that’s lacking, with almost every guy I’ve ever dated.
I don’t do that with the Dom. Not even a little.
There are moments where I’m self-conscious, of course. But those are expected and nothing compared to the overwhelming feeling that I’m completely unappealing or interesting in the eyes of the person I’m dating.
I don’t know what the difference is exactly. Part of it is that he’s open, honest, and upfront about what he’s thinking. I don’t have the opportunity to twist myself up with wondering and what if. We’ve already had the talks about relationships and previous partners, childhoods and parents, high school and college.
