kiss dodging

For whatever reason, there’s a short list of things I’ve been eating lately: oatmeal, cous cous, yogurt, grape tomatoes, oranges. And when Coop asked what I was having for dinner, I told him three more things off the list: pita, hummus, and mozzarella.

Cooper: You need to start dating again.
Me: You mean I should start dating for the food?
Cooper: If I were a girl I totally would
Me: It’s just so exhausting. And you have to do things to your hair so much. And then there’s only so much kiss dodging you can do.
Cooper: You’ve got to put that in your blog or I will-- “kiss dodging”.

I have a confession: I love internet dating. I should clarify: I love free internet dating.

But I don’t think I’m quite ready to start back. I’m simplifying.

Dating for the food is a new concept to me, actually. But it seems a far more plausible one than a lot of the other reasons for dating...

I'm writing a post about kiss-dodging, at least in part... if it were an Olympic sport, I'd be at least a silver.

i would never endorse dating exclusively for food. i will say that it can be a perk. . . especially for those of us on what we like to call the manhattan diet (too poor to eat properly or take cabs).

Instead of dating for the food, I keep charging all the food and faking my own death. It's more fun.

pistols, i don't care how you pay for it as long as i can wrap up the leftovers to eat for lunch the next day.
