Speed Dating

Single women of the world rejoice, I am once again available.  

As with all dating matters, I will keep my blogging on this matter rather vague so as to minimize any potential embarrassment on the part of my co-dater.  I understand that association with me can be rather damaging to ones reputation and hold you back from many upper level government positions.  For those of you that don’t speak Chris co-dater would be my girlfriend, who no longer qualifies as such.

It was fun while it lasted.  We dated for exactly a week.  She was and is a fantastic girl who I greatly enjoy being with.  But by the end of the week I knew that I wasn’t going to marry her (timing played a role here, but it was primarily some inherent differences between us) so there was no point in continuing the relationship.  Having a girlfriend is great, but that’s not my end goal.  So I broke it off, which admittedly is easier than being dumped, but by no means a pleasant event.  Time will tell if we remain friends or by necessity separate ourselves.

So that’s it.  I’m back on the market and taking the highest (and cutest) bidder.

"Inherant differences" that might cause Christopher not to marry you:
--you question the morality of music files-swapping
--you have not invested 75% of your income in Asian-made cartoons
--you have a problem with people dying their hair
--you admit to a country music phase when you were 13
--you made a derogetory comment about I-pods
--you sleep sometimes
--you made an Idaho joke
--you explained your embrace of "Intelligent Design" and named it as the reason you intend to homeschool all your children
--you "just don't get" his Jaberwaky poem
--you don't like his sister

Any more?

Good luck, Christopher. Slim pickings out there.

You really think Christopher would break up with a girl because she didn't like one of his sisters? Any one of his sisters, or just his favorite? Don't get me wrong, I think this is one of the best reasons for a breakup (being trumped only by a sister not liking the girlfriend), but I'd be kind of surprised if Christopher felt the same way. Getting eight girls to approve of one seems like a tall order.

Wow, a week. Is that a new record for you?
