Wonderful Nightmare: A Perfect Dating Analogy…

Dating is the most pleasurable torture you’ll ever experience. It’s like being waterboarded by a beautiful girl who’s giving a happy ending at the same time.

Patton Oswalt, one of America’s greatest comedians said it best, “Dating is a fun nightmare…it’s a nightmare and there’s boners involved.”

And that’s why my friend Erin and I have created this blog. To put it simply…we’re on the other end of the dating bell curve. We go on lots of dates. We’ve met lots of perspective matches. And we’ve read countless personal ads.

In short, we’re grizzled veterans of countless dating skirmishes. With all this experience, comes stories. Amazing stories. Stories of anti-semetic alcoholics. Stories of pot-smoking Republicans. And of course, stories of great connections. It’s all in this oddly flavored stew called dating.

So this blog will be a blog bouillabaisse cooked to the brim with anectodes, oddball personal ads, advice and hopefully, a realistic depiction of what’s it like to date successfully in today’s day and age.
