I have become apathetic when it comes to dating

By: Bobby Finstock on 07/16/09 @ 7:59 am

I just don’t care. Right now I have about 8 e-mails to respond to on match.com from semi attractive women that have interest in me. There are women I have gone on multiple dates with that I like, had sexual chemistry with, and enjoy being around yet I haven’t made any plans with them for this weekend. Usually my male sex drive would kick in joined by my desire not to be by myself and I would go find someone to do something with but… meh.

Last night I realized that I just don’t give a shit right now. I’ve felt like this for a month now. The thing is I can’t put my finger on why. Lets break this down to what could be the reason why:

1) I have some form of depression

I could possibly have a reverse case of seasonal affective disorder where I get depressed when summer rolls around but shine when the winter hits. Of course that can’t be true because I generally hate going out in public during the winter because I have to do things like “shovel”, “clean off the car”, and worst of all “put pants on”. Apparently society truly does look down on you when you rock out with your cock out no matter what those t-shirts say.

2) I’m gay


Nope…. Nothing. No movement down there.

3) I am too focused on building my own company and taking over the world.

My little business that I left my real job for last year had begun to really take off. I almost have more business than I can handle, that is why you are seeing less out of me blog post wise. Thoughts of me becoming a multi-millionaire have begun to fill my head and the fantasy of becoming rich has led me to dream about fulfilling my list.

However that can’t be it, all the money in the world can’t replace empty sex as a motivating factor in my life.

4) The death of Bea Arthur has destroyed my passion for women

This has to be it….

I am open to your theories, what do you think it is?

    You COULD be a depressed, homosexual, megalomaniac with a fetish for very handsome women.Hmm.

    I had months where I just couldn’t be bothered with the entire scene. Its so much easier to just masturbate and then when its over you have the whole bed to yourself.

    With that attitude no wonder I was single.

  2. clientsideshowbob says:

    You’re probably just burned out. Doing the first date thing repeatedly is like work, and who wants to work two jobs? I say rock out with your c*ck out all you want, see if someone passing by takes you up on that offer.

  3. Raeann says:

    You are probably just in a funk. Dating like that is a lot of pressure too and puts a meat market aspect into it. I wasn’t going to say anything either, but since you did, you haven’t seemed the same since the death of Bea Arthur. Guys get preoccupied, but just stop dwelling on the dating thing, you said eariler it was like looking for a job. Who likes interviewing and looking for a new job? There are other ways to meet people. Just don’t get chronic carpal tunnel with excessive masturbation, I don’t think your hand could take it.

    I blame online dating. There is something very anti-climatic about the process. I mean yeah, it can work but it isn’t anything like meeting someone finding them attractive asking them out, etc.

    And I don’t know about you, but now that I am single I just turn to porn. I mean it is there…

    *Note: I said “turn to porn not turn into porn”

    • maybe we should have a viewing party?

      The thing is I don’t work with anyone anymore, I am in a city where I know hardly anyone, and I am not going to a bar myself… Meeting women online is like my best route… It is like a giant screening process.

      • Sarahh says:

        The odd thing is, I only watch it when I am single. Don’t really need it otherwise I suppose…

        I work in a place with NO people and I live on an island where I grew up. The dating pool is nothing but floaters and I just don’t have the patience for any bullshit.

        That and I have been told, when in a bar I give off a “Fuck off” vibe. Probably not helping my case any.

    I assume its because you’re waiting for me to become available.

  6. You could be like me, and your right hand got you drunk, and made you sign a pre-nup before you married it. I know that my dream threesome of Barbra Bush and Bea Arthur were crushed when Bea died(RIP Bea). Just remember, it’s almost football season, and who needs women when football is on. Just sayin’

    I feel your pain, it does become exhausting to do the whole dating thing. Example: So I’m going out with this Brazilian girl and I find out she’s living in the country illegally, but her English is so poor I don’t really realize what she’s trying to explain to me until about 5 minutes into the conversation (probably because I wasn’t paying attention and was just mentally counting down until “naked time”). So, kinda awkward moment, but what happens next is some guy calls my cell phone and it turns out to be the drug dealer of another match.com girl I was ’seeing’ and he threatened to kill me because… well he’s a drug dealer that’s what he does I guess. Apparently, he went through her phone while they were getting high and got my number. Then there’s the 31 year old Saudi Arabian woman I was dating who had a 17 year old daughter that I found myself being more attractive, causing me to question my own moral consience, whether I was a good person and deserved to live or not…
    Thanks, Match.com!

      I’m with Jeff, I’ve tried the match.com thing on and off for a few years, it’s just a giant hassle. From the back and forth e-mails only to have the chick just disappear on you, the awkward first meeting where you see them and think, “Oh please God,let that not be her” and it usually is, to the ever popular, “Oh, I had a really nice time, let’s go out this weekend”, only again to have them disappear, also known as the, “I got back with my ex, who was the only reason I was doing this match thing, to piss him off and make him jealous” routine. I think the internet in the early days was a great way to meet people, now it’s turned into a giant trailer park cesspool.

    See? It’s all that married booty. You’re cursed.

  10. Mr. UGVC says:

    Bea Arthur’s DEAD?!? I can feel my manhood growing limp and disfunctional; it’s like my testicles have stopped producing their essential man juices!!!

    • Andy says:

      Really? The thought of a dead Bea Arthur lying in front of me is pumping more of my essential man juices into my nether regions!

  11. Mr. UGVC says:

    PsYcHo BiTcH – say you’ll be MINE!!! (Cause my life isn’t wrecked enough already!)

  12. Andy says:

    I think it’s what most folks have already said: you’re just tired of dating at the moment. I know I am. While it is nice to go out with someone, having to meet someone, get to know, take them out, and possibly maybe have the chance to go out with them a second time is all a pain in the ass.

    Or maybe we’re all cranky bastards.

  13. Richard says:

    You just gotta keep trying…quitting will not lead to anything1
