My girlfriend has a date on Friday and I realised I hadn’t done that in a while, so I made a post in a local poly Facebook group. Here it is:
Hi folks. I have no Friday night plans, so I thought I’d see if someone wanted to go on a date. I haven’t done that in a while.
I am the least cool individual and I have zero chill. I’m less Vanilla Ice in Cool as Ice and more Arnie in Batman and Robin (but only for the puns).
I have a borderline compulsion to constantly make dumb, meta jokes. However bad you think they’ll be, they’re worse.
Words are my favourite things. When I learn a new one, I needlessly shoehorn it into almost every conversation for the next week.
I believe in facing things that you’re afraid of. I’m still not brave enough to use semicolons regularly.
I think prescriptivism is narrow minded, but also consider the pronunciations “nucular” and “aluminum” morally reprehensible. We all have nuance.
I compensate for a lack of life experience by being obssessed with pop culture.
I made a podcast analysing the Air Bud Cinematic Universe.
I love stand up comedy. My favourite local comics are Mark Little, DeAnne Smith and Mark Forward (I’d also say Amanda Brooke Perrin, but she abandoned us).
Demi Adejuyigbe’s Twitter has a direct connection to my funny bone.
I sometimes write live music/comedy reviews when I don’t want to pay for tickets.
I’m a sucker for sadcoms (You’re the Worst, Catastrophe, Fleabag (ish)) and think Legion is the best show not enough people are watching right now.
I recently discovered the Punch up the Jam podcast and I’m having zero success getting others to listen.
I tend to date women. I’m in no way against dating men, but I haven’t met any that I’m romantically attracted to yet. If you’re a guy and you sincerely think you’re my type, let me know.
I think it’s entirely okay for either person to opt out of a date at any point because they’re not feeling it. Sometimes the chemistry isn’t there and you’re not a bad person for realising that. I’m a weird dude who’s not everyone’s flavour, I get it.
You’re interested in the above and have no plans Friday night.
I’m thinking maybe drinks/dinner. If we’re feeling goofy and flirty (or even if there’s no chemistry but we both feel like it), dancing at Beam Me Up or something. If that sounds fun, comment below.
I figure at worst, if there are no bites, I can stay home and play Magic. That’s a pretty high floor.
