Dudes say the darnedest things.

Guys say some funny things on dating sites and every now and then I feel the urge to mess with them a little. In his profile this guy claimed to be both a porn star (and he had the body for it, if those are really him in the photos) as well as interest in philosophy. So after the long pitch for his "sex positive" approach to life - apparently that's the term that horndawgs are now using - I had to ask him about the philosophy. And speaking of jerks online, I see that the guy I was horribly in love with for several years is still on at least a couple of dating sites and he just turned 50. But he's still looking for someone between the ages of 30 - 40. I wonder how many more years he'll stick with that age range.  Probably forever. If I had known that he was your standard middle-aged entitled ass I would never have fallen in love with him in the first place - I really had this delusion he was a special person. And since he rejected me like I was radioactive waste lo these seven years ago he's been persistently single as far as I can tell. I have to laugh about it now because he's such a seriously mediocre human being with some awful friends (theater people, also incredibly mediocre and with typical sexist views) who hooted like howler monkeys (or the online equivalent) because I dared to express my attraction for this guy indirectly in poetry. I'm still amazed their lives were so empty they cared enough to be mean to me. Being rejected by this very average-looking guy (even when I was in love with him I didn't think he was especially good-looking) made me feel completely worthless for a long time. Lucky for me there are plenty of men who don't agree with him. Although perhaps some of them are a little too "sex positive."
