When asked why he was not dating anybody, a wise man once answered “a date is an experience you have with another person that makes you appreciate being alone.”
Watching that episode was hilarious enough to begin with, but once Larry let loose with that comment I immediately burst out laughing. How much more relateable can the show get? It was eerily accurate to the point where when I rewatched the episode later that week I exclaimed- THIS is what I’m talking about! THIS is my dating life in a nutshell!
As you well know, most of my dates start and end with the promise of an ensuing/traumatic blog post and is usually successful in achieving that. For that reason alone its always worth it for me to give it a shot with any guy (oh…and also the possibility of finding “The One”- can’t forget that).
However, oftentimes when I am on the date I find myself zoning out, perhaps wishing I was home in my jammies watching Leno or feeling nostalgic with Nick at Night instead of out trying to get to know a complete stranger in the vain hope of making him my husband.
Next time that my mother’s friend’s sister’s aunt wants to set me up, I just might use Larry David’s reply to get out of it. Although, that may result in much fewer blog posts….
