Finally – a show with a premise this near and dear to my heart has arrived in theatres!
The Second City in Los Angeles has added a new show that is relevant to all sexy singletons called “Undateable.” Enough said!
According to the press release, the show is:
“In a nutshell: The cast did a photo shoot and posted 38 “Undateable” profiles on OK Cupid across the country and tracked the results. The show is the results of months of research of REAL people talking to FAKE characters. A scientific experiment about the online search for love. The show features multimedia, original music, and real life characters transferred from the online world to the stage. It’s unlike anything you’ve ever seen before.” Click here to meet the comical cast.
The belief that Big Daddy might be a cokehead cannot be proven at this time, however the fact that he is a Peeping Tom can!
Following the advice of a psychic that I saw a few months ago (I know, I know…), I put a dating profile up online as he felt that I might meet my significant other this month. Yet again, I was contacted solely by salesmen, cheats and liars. And people with their shirts off.. And people who sound like they’re one bad date away from having a relationship with their pet… Exhausted and disgusted at the prospects (or, lack thereof), I decided to check out who had been checking me out. When I scrolled down the list of creeping creeps, Big Daddy’s profile popped up. I was surprised. Shocked. Saddened. Having not spoken since the breakup (it’s been almost 5 months), it brought back all the drama. It also stirred up lots of questions:
If I had any doubts over the past 3 weeks whether being on mancation was the right decision, I certainly got my answer on the weekend. In a moment of weakness, I decided to put my profile back on Useless Dating Site just in case Big Daddy happened to be back online and might see it. Mature, I know… Anyhoo, after receiving winks, smiles and ridiculous emails from men who say they are forty but are really sixty, who refuse to wear tops, who are in love with their dogs or who can’t even hide in their crazy-eyed photos that they are serial killers, I received an email from someone who seemed different. Normal. Adventurous. Outgoing. Successful. After some emails back and forth and a couple of missed calls, I received the following message on a beautiful Sunday morning in Cosmpolitan City:
Yay! Since I cannot figure it out for myself, I have turned to the experts from DatingSite.org. Read on for their amazingly accurate advice:
If there is something in this world that you want, you should go after it, right? Making a list of your goals and desires, and then finding a way to achieve them is a strong way to go about getting what you want. The trick is you have to be specific. The more specific you are in terms of what you want in life, the greater the chances are of you achieving those goals. This is a great way to determine what you want in most aspects of your life, including using a dating site.
It seems that some of us (I’m lying… I mean those of the male persuasion) need to go over the expectations of etiquette that apply to dating. Unfortunately, there are men out there who have lost track of how to go about it, or perhaps never knew how to behave properly from the start. I’ll begin with my rules of etiquette as they apply to dating online. I would also like to offer up some pointers for dating in general, but I just can’t stomach tackling both at the same time. Please stay tuned.

This is my first post and the subject of this post is what inspired this blog. I’ve been experiencing a less-than-successful dating life for the past few years and some of my recent experiences have pushed me into territory that I never thought I would use to hopefully meet someone decent….. Yes, I went outside my comfort zone and into the world of ONLINE DATING.
I took some time to create a somewhat thoughtful profile (complete with photo carefully chosen so as to look pretty but not overly made up, friendly but not friendly in a guy’s opinion, which would just be slutty, fun-loving but not drunk …
Just when I think I’ve had my last communication from eHarmony (why, WHY did I ever sign up for that bloody free weekend???), I receive another email that makes me sad for the people who pay good money only to get relationship advice like this. The experts at eHarmony feel that, in order to have a successful relationship, daters should NEVER say the following:
