whats the deal with you and ned


today i got really nervous that dating will never work for me. i always had my suspicions but now i am feeling like its turning into evidence and soon will be a scientific doctrine. one theory being thrown out there on a regular basis by mom, church leaders, dating books (i have read like 3 and skimmed 7), Dr. Phil, etc. is that you date to get to know people and then you end up in a relationship. i actually really like relationships. i dont require a boyfriend but i prefer having one. because if you have a boyfriend you dont have to date AND there is always someone to watch tv with. nothing makes me happier than those two things. and its nice to have someone to talk to and you dont have to keep explaining who the people are in your stories. oh and cuddling. i like cuddling. (but i think(know) i am hard to cuddle with. so squirmy. if you plan on cuddling with me i am just going to apologize in advance). where was i? oh yes dating. it doesnt work (for me). because i dont get it. i never felt comfortable with dating. i dont get the door opening stuff. i dont understand the paying thing. i dont like answering questions about myself. i dont like talking about my job/interests/family with people i dont know. i hate almost all dating activities EXCEPT for movies and bowling and i dont like bowling on dates. i am really awkward and self conscious most of the time. so, i really dont like dating and i dont understand how it helps me get to know anyone besides myself and how awkward i can really get. and whats more is i dont even remember the last time i had a boyfriend as a direct result of dating. so maybe all those people are wrong about it (fingers crossed).

anyway i have a date tonight. i think i might only blog on days i date.

Punk Rock Girl,

This post makes me sad a little.

natali said...

oh jefe dont be sad. i am not sad. i am pretty happy. i just think maybe i am done with dating. it might in fact be dead (to me).

Jefe said...

I always hate it when people say "you always find someone when you aren't looking for it." That's such BS, it's like when someone says "Everything happens for a reason."

What's wrong with the guys in this town (I know I am a guy too) you should be getting dates left and right!

natali said...

oh i date. more than i would like. thats the problem i dont like it...and its not because i dont like who i date. its because i dont like dating.

Jefe said...

So what would make dating fun?

natali said...

sex.

natali said...

and probably alcohol.

Jefe said...

I know some guys.

Jefe said...

They won't even make you do a walk of shame, they're gentleman, they'll actually drop you off at your door after a night of boozing and doing things that won't allow you to look at eachother for at least 48 hours after the fact.

becky said...

sign me up!

natali said...

joking aside i am trying to figure out ways to date without dating. its kind of like how brian is trying to figure out how to redefine romance.

Jefe said...

It's easy Nat, it's called ambush dating what you do is...wait a minute, hasn't that been addressed? Any way, I'm surprised that the dudes in our ward aren't lining up yet. Looks like you're going to have to come up with some creative deflecting!

Colls said...

natters, it's ok to boycot dating. i called your springville family practice doctor and he said to go for it.

natali said...

hot doctor willey? how did you know about us?

natali said...

no seriously. i had a huge crush on my doctor. and he totally flirted with me. it made it hard to go in there when i had that rash situation...

becky said...

i bet the pap smear was even more awkward

natali said...

no his ex-wife did that. complicated i know.

Jefe said...

Sounds like the wonderful new romantic comedy staring Richard Gere as smooth, avaialble but always sensitive Dr. Willey and his EX wife who just can't get away from him Susan Surrandon. They are dr.'s who run a small town practice but both looking for love in all the wrong places.

You could be the one that helps him get over himself.

punk rock girl said...

it does sounds like a good movie. i hope i get to kiss hot dr. willey. is that in the script?

Colls said...

it should be in the script and then he will tell you that your burning sensation is normal.

becky said...

haha colls.

i would like to vote that hot doctor wiley and his wife NOT be played by richard gere or susan surrandon. i would prefer to see people a little younger and sexier. i'm thinking brad pitt....do you feel a lump doctor? i don't think you spent enough time on those.

punk rock girl said...

i do think the tumor is growing back. this could be really perfect.

Jefe said...

Pretty Boy Pitt doesn't do romantic comedies, the closest you could get would be Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Gardner, but then you would have to revamp the story line and it would no longer be Dr. Willey, but Car Salesman Willey and his semi retarded ex wife (let's face it, she's a little bit retarded). But then breast exams would be just weird.

natali said...

vince vaughn is not good looking. and i dont really think he is funny. i refuse to have a crush on him. i would prefer either adam or adrien brody.

Colls said...

what about macaulay culkin? don't be close minded...

Jefe said...

Well we could use Adam Brody, but here's the rub, he would have to be boy DR. so it would be a remake of Doogie Howser MD.

Did I mention I love the O.C.. Yeah I do!

punk rock girl said...

its hard to top OC season one.

becky said...

adrien brody? you seriously disappoint me. you know how much i love adam, but jefe is right, he's too young. i've got it!! clive owens.

natali said...

adrien brody is probably the actor i am most attracted to. clive doesnt do it for me...

Jefe said...

Again, Clive Owen,too intense for a small town heartfelt romantic Comedy/ melodrama. Your going to have to get someone like Jude Law and Drew Barrymore...

They don't love each other, but through their shared practices and sharing of their dating experiences they realize that they are still in love. This happens while they are walking home one night and Jude Law realizes that he is looking at the stars again for the first time. He is really seeing it, understanding it. Drew Barrymore isn't trying to be won over but she realizes that noone understands the female genetalia (remember she does all the pelvic exams) like her Dr. Ex-husband.

natali said...

i got it luke wilson. how did i not think of him before?

becky said...

luke wilson. good call.

nothing says "romantic comedy" like pap smears and breast exams
