Modern Day Carrie Bradshaw: 2013 Dating Is A Wrap!

Her Mr. Big came eventually

Her Mr. Big came eventually

This year has been a bit hard on the head when it comes to dating. A girlfriend told me just this last week that I am the ‘Modern Day Carrie Bradshaw’. I have to bow my head and admit this is true. I wish I could sum all of my romanic escapades into one post but that is a feat that would prove to be too difficult. Pat Benetar’s – Love is a battle field plays in the background as I write this post. Maybe it’s the premise of the song. Maybe it’s the upbeat 80’s music that has gotten me in the feeling to let go. Either way I am sending these guys packing from my memory. See yah later…oops, I mean never!

In summary I’ve dated:
– roommates (by accident)… also how does this happen to me?
– a professional pick-up artist
– befriended a swinger
– sketchy Twitter guy
– Sammie Fake Last Name…
– Kindergarten teacher confused about his sexuality
– Guys still hung up on their exes…in where I become the ’emotional washcloth’
– Amurrricah from Buffalo
– Where’s Waldo wearing a kitty T-shirt
…and these are just a few of the ones that really stand out.

I wonder if I just have really bad dating karma and how long this curse will last. I know i’m not the only one out there. I have several beautiful girlfriends who are absolute catches who are constantly struggling to meet someone with actual substance. I’m not blaming all men out there. There are some really great guys, I’m just saying where the heck are y’all at? I live in a city with millions of people and yet have not met someone I truly can connect with. My grandmother assures me I need to put myself out there. I think it’s safe to say I have put myself and my heart on the line many a times. I’m okay being alone though. I have everything I pretty much need and have done it all myself. I just would like to watch the odd hockey game or go on the odd vaycay with someone I can hold their hand and sneak the odd kiss once in a while. This by no means is a poor Erin post. I am not a desperate girl nor will I ever be. I’m just saying it’s been a rough year romantic wise and I am super excited for 2014. It’s time to let go of the past and all of the negativity that has accompanied it. A fresh start full of inspiration is what the doctor has called for. Here’s to 2014 girls and guys! May it be the best love filled, sexually pleasing, flowers on your doorstep kind of year!

  1. Ever feel like when you tell date stories, some people just don’t believe you?
