Why I Don't Need a Dating Site

I found my answer to the whole dating site fiasco - cupcakes. Yes cupcakes. Despite looking like I do when I work at the clinic - scrubs and ponytail I turned every man's head this morning and even better got to talk to this amazing Barista boy at Starbucks - who knew about Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World - and once he said that I was his and well I blanked on my Starbucks order it was fabulous. It's a shame I hadn't seen him there before and even worse it was my last day in Yaletown - I was almost prepared to tell Jas I would work Mondays just to see him. A boy who loves coffee and vegan cupcakes, who has that stylish geek look going on - the Commercial Drive look - witty and all. So that's what I'm going to do - move on with my life, no more dating site and instead I'm going to use Green Tea, Boston Creme and Red Velvet caloric delights to find me that special someone...

That was worse than writting in a stall in the girls bathroom at your local elementary school...

shawn, we already talked about this - the reality is this - one we've known for a long time the dating site was practically an awful idea - it made for some funny blogs for a while but now I've had enough of it.

As to the barista boy and the whole cupcake thing - you really think I'm going to pander to the patriarchal system to find a husband?

Relax - sorry it rubbed you the wrong way, though yes you did pick up on the source of the matter...

I LOVE YOU I LOVE YOU I LOVE YOU...
You are so right about dating sites, they are an awful awful mind numbing experiance type of thing... Can you give me some of your cupcakes to walk around with to attract men that will think that I cook? I dont mind giving into the Patriarchal system, especially since I will be decieving them .

The dating site thing is a disaster in my book as well. You and I have talk extensively about that and I think the three of us agree. I do however have some amazing bloggin material to write about this evening regards to a two minute blind date on the radio this morning. More to come on that.

totally - 100% baking (especially charming cupcake-type) is good for the flirting. I've experienced this phenomenon. I'm convinced that's what cupcakes were invented for.

Not true sf,
The quickest way to a man's heart is through his chest.

LeahA said...

does a man's heart really matter? It has been in my experiance to belive that men do not have hearts!

Shawn said...

Leaha, that is not very fair to say. I have an incredibly large heart, I am 6'3" I need a large heart for my body to function. On a serious note, you girls who have bad experiences with jerks and then write off us good guys are all the same. You never give a nice guy the time of day, proven fact.

LeahA said...

I never write anyone off, I just dont belive guys have hearts thats all.

I am a lover of all !

Shawn said...

Some of us do I promise.

leah said...

i think everyone has a heart. to a woman, it's just hard to find it in a guy. yepppp..

Shawn said...

I think my heart is ready accessable, now it doesn't mean I am feminine. It means I am okay with me (usually).

jocelynlt said...

Oh, I know guys have hearts. I just find they use their eyes more often.

In my past experiences I have met some very heartless women. Maybe they were created by the way that they were treated by a man. I will admit that the values of a large majority of the world have gone to poo. But does that mean that the cycle should keep going? Does this mean that the bad seeds of a few make the hole crop bad? There are alot of things that males are influenced by but dont really know it or to what extent. A book that every male should read and even woman is Every Man's Battle by Stephan Arterburn and Fred Stoeker. The influences of t.v., magazines, magazines, even the way that some women dress especially. How is someone to know how to treat or look at a woman that is wearing a shirt that shows cleavage or a short skirt? A majority of women use what was given to them to there advantage I cant say that I blame them. They know how some males work. But it is not the right thing to do. If a male is pure of heart and has a understanding of what is really going on there he can control his eyes. I had not realized in my younger years that the things that I had done and acknowledged about women actually had pushed me farther from the right woman. That with every sexual partner or everytime that I thaught about a woman in a inappropriate way that a little piece of my heart went with that thaught, causing my heart to become smaller and smaller. Since that realization a year and a half ago ive had to continually and faithfully accept Gods love and forgiveness for my sins. To in hopes and faith to slowly start to put some of those pieces back together, knowing that all of them will never be back together. But this is a price of love. tc

I have to say (tc) put it very eloquently and pretty much right on target, great job.
