It’s Truth

How The Bachelor Ruined Dating For Men Everywhere | The Urban List

A funny read from a self-proclaimed Aussie Bachelor writing about the recent series of ‘the bachelor’ that has caused a stir over here.

I’m not really a fan of reality TV, especially this sort of brain-damaging tripe. However, this particular series seemed to echo my experiences of dating men and the type of dregs that are out there.

It took a year of sifting through them to find a good one!

Dear Dregs…

Dear Dregs…

The latest in the spam folder from my ex who is still pining for me. This is just weird now! :-/

The Wrong Direction

When I was dating…this is how it felt sometimes

I found the “herro” thing pretty offensive as I took it to be a poor impression of an Asian (probably most specifically Japanese) accent, sent they’re known for not being able to pronounce “L” and “R” differently. I dunno. I just feel like it’s one of those things that my Japanese co-worker can say, but coming from this white guy…

I think “herro” can also be said / used in a cute kind of Scooby-Doo type way. And used as more of an endearing approach to the subject. Tiger does this when we’ve been engrossed in watching a show and I break his concentration by snuggling up closer to him. It’s like a fond greeting to my presence.

The right type of man

So, now that I’ve found him, I thought I would share the key principles & values that make up the ‘right guy’. It’s taken me a such a long time to find a good one, and every day spent with him I discover something new that makes me smile and think, “this is how it should have been - always” or,…
