"We're probably not meant to be..."

Posted by on Friday, October 21, 2011


First off... I am very content being a single person.  I can lay on the couch sans-pants whenever I want, I can eat for dinner whatever I want, and I have spent the last two months perfecting the "starfish" in bed.

That said, one of the good things about my last relationship is that we actually did things together.  We had similar tastes in sports and enjoyed (or at least I did) going to sporting events (and other events) as a couple.  I am totally fine going to things by myself, but with someone else I felt I got more out of the experience.

So - I've dived back into the pond.  The goddamn Plenty of Fish pond.

I've been lurking mostly (although I do have to sit down and type out the story of the "date that never was" from last weekend), and here are just a few things I've discovered along the way that cement that "we're just not meant to be".

If you're giving the camera the one finger salute in your one and only profile picture, we're probably not meant to be.

If you haven't figured out that "orange tan" is not an appropriate skin colour, we're probably not meant to be.  

If your profile picture include a ripped wife beater, a cowboy hat and your abs, we're probably not meant to be.  

If you think "graduate degree" means you graduated high school, we're probably not meant to be

If you are wearing white sunglasses in your profile picture, we're probably not meant to be.  

If you keep calling and texting me after you were all creepy and I told you so, we're probably not meant to be.  

If you say you don't do drugs, but then mention that you "smoke a few doobies on the weekend", we're probably not meant to be.

If you are over 35 and list "skateboarding" as your only means of transportation, we're probably not meant to be.  

If your profile picture contains you and a half dressed whoreish looking female draped on you, we're probably not meant to be.  

If you have a faux hawk, we probably aren't meant to be.

If you'd like to follow my journey of "we're probably not meant to be" I always hashtag my tweets with #POFrules. Perhaps I'll do a post later where I don't protect the innocent offenders and post some of the stuff I read... or even better... some of the profile pictures!
