Hey, Nice Couch

They say in relationships what you put up with is what you will get.

When it comes to straddling the ever lowering fence of getting to know one another over dinner and theatre dates to being in a “normal” relationship how long should you climb?

When the beginning “dating” period is over and as a couple you are becoming more comfortable with one another when is the appropriate time to say “whatever” and give up on the planning and beautifying anxiety ridden preparations? I understand its the natural progression of relationships… but shouldn’t there be a little bit left for some in-public shenanigans?

As a female in America fighting for respect and any kind of romance or sparkle daily, when is the right time to give up the fancy fight and say f**K it… allowing your significant other to become ultimately lazy letting the “relationship” period pull its dark hood over your coupledom’s head?

Is this something to fight for? Or is it really just acceptable to waive your white flag and start making nightly dinners followed by Netflix movies and late night romcom’s followed by morning scrambled eggs?

As Valentine’s approaches I realize that oftentimes when you are “supposed” to be going out due to a national holiday… or hallmark coming out as a drug user of steroids… I wonder should we continue to expect someone to WANT to bring on the sparkle for all of time… or are sweatpants and takeout food just the normal sequence of events? I can’t help but want to fight the urge of such a thing known as comfort… just to keep the special. Perhaps if not avoiding the monotony of TV and couple supermarket trips means that you have made it in the quest of relationships and dating. Instinctly, I want to pull a mulligan and resign from the game. On this path… the only next logical move is farting in bed and tweezing each other’s eyebrows. Or perhaps, it is worth the fight to keep the fantasy… at least one night a week? As women isn’t that what it’s all about? Being single for most of my life, I appreciate the fun and glitter of dating and making plans and having something to look forward to.

However, if examining oneanother’s boogers and foot cramps really is the reality of the situation, I’d rather keep my reality to Keeping Up with the Kardashians and become a serial first dater… until I’ve reached Betty White status at least.

I guess thank gawd for Match.com and Ben and Jerry’s.

Here come the snuggies. *le sigh

Relationship Revolutions

19 Aug

After personal experience and talking to friends who are active in the online dating world in which afternoon dates are the only option so that “bro” time can happen in the evening (PS if you use the word “bro” or “bra” you don’t deserve a date), I realized there is a definite movement that is entering into the relationship world that has increased in the past 5-10 years to the point where I think complete asexuality is a possibility in our near future.

Dating or real relationships are being replaced with sex buddies and casual hookups. The deterioration of love and chivalry is beginning to spread across the masses as marriages are ending very quickly and independence across younger generations is becoming more abundant. Thus proving there is less need for long-term companionship with the opposite sex. Sex and reproducing is also becoming less of a concern as overpopulation continues.

Gone are the days of getting to know someone. Today everything goes straight to the bedroom and that is the norm. Serious commitments are replaced with casual sex, No Strings Attached, and Friends with Benefits. Men no longer NEED to try to win over women, they are getting to the finish line before they leave the starting gate. Plus, they have their “bros” to hang out with after they are satisfied.

And it’s not only men. Women are partaking in this trend and don’t seem to have many complaints.

Additionally, sex toys are becoming so creative that an actual partner is no longer necessary. People can get what they want and can be freed of the chains of relationships, marriage, incessant chattering, awkward dinners, chick flicks, and screaming children. And who can blame them? Yes, there still are those “old-fashioned” types, but they are fewer every day. And of course the Justin Timberlake’s and Ashton Kutcher’s out there can’t help but fall for the Mila Kunis’s and Natalie Portman’s in the end… but there may be an end to that coming as well.

 Every one is getting what they want and still getting to live their own lives without the compromise that comes with coupling. I think this concept is going to continue into something that is unknown as of now, but will evolve to be very familiar in the future.

Ya feel me “bra”?

Wait… so am I a Virgo or not?

A few months ago the astrology signs were all shook up and what you once were you are now not. Or are you?

People said the new way was the right way and others said the old way was the right way and the new way was a fluke. But noone ever came to a concrete decision on whether or not our astrology sings have changed. All the star gazers just said screw it and gave up. AND NOW the whole world is confused about what horoscope to obsess about and how to determine the outcome of their future!!

 Is noone else concerned about this?!?! I’m not really into astrology and never look at my horoscope, but for crying out loud lets hammer out this discrepancy before the whole universe and the signs themselves give up from the confusion! This is very unprofessional of the universe to start rotating differently and ruin my once sorted out personality expectancies. I mean if I was super crazy about anything I just blamed it on my sign. Now what am I supposed to fall back on?… actually working on my inner-self and character, and letting fate take its toll?… I think not!

I mean if I’m a Virgo or a  Leo it is going to be a VERY important dinstinction for my future dating habits and how I treat my co-workers… duh.

P.S. Where was Ophiuchus when you needed him before???… he just popped in and made the executive decision to join the party in 2011? Silly Universe. 😉
