The snow is really ruining my game.

I know I have no right to complain because I've lived in Cleveland my whole life and I stay here by choice, but I still hate the snow. Every winter I dread the snow and cold. A whole weekend was just seriously destroyed because of the snow. Well, not really, but it definitely was not as fun as it could have been. I had a girls night Friday at my friend's house. The 5 minute drive home took at least 15 minutes. Saturday I stayed in all day and ventured out for a much needed trip to the gym even though the streets were still a nightmare. Saturday night my friends had a graduation party at Around the Corner which is very close to where I live and it was fun except that the whole rest of the bar was pretty much dead - a consequence of the blizzard I suppose. Subsequently, there is no news to report from dating world.

In somewhat related news, I am seriously considering re-upping my membership on an infamous online dating site. I online dated for about 4 months last year. I went on 2 dates total (and they were 2 guys I had already known in real life who found me online). Needless to say I wasn't too impressed with the selection. I like the idea of online dating but I have only met one person who it has actually "worked out" for, and needless to say my friends are (sadly) already taking bets on when that disaster of a marriage is going to end. Does anyone else date online/have a favorite site?

I don't know what it is - but I always get stir crazy this time of year.

  1. Cleveland is too small for me to online date (since my life is two degrees of separation), but my friend at work married someone she met online. So it CAN work!

  2. I don't know. The more I think about it, I think everyone is right. It's just never a good idea.

  3. I hate the snow here, too. It took me two hours to get to Akron from Cleveland last Friday.

  4. online dating seems to be the topic du jour. the blogger over at famously single is clearly not a fan, and i have to agree. even if your "perfect on paper" guy is on there, it's just twice as disappointing when you meet him in person and feel no spark.

    at least, that's how it was for me. i went on nearly a dozen dates with different guys. only one got a second date and only because i was proving a point to a friend who said i never gave them a second chance.

    unplug and wait out the snow. there's just something about spring...

  5. Well for someone who lives in sunny South Africa where the most we gest is sleet, snow would be quite cool to see. But I guess if you see it every day and it ruins a few things (like outings) it can get rather over-rated.

    HeHe!! M

  6. online dating can work. My friend met her husband on her first online date, no joke. If not, it will make for great blog fodder.

  7. True, it would make for entertaining stories, but my time is a bit more valuable than that. I might just let nature take it's course. :)
