Bucket List – Part 2
After much anticipation, the rest of my dating “bucket list” (as it stands now):
1.) Have a kiss like Felicity and Ben’s first kiss. See previous post.
2.) Have a romantic comedy first date. You know the one: lots of laughs, some awkward but endearing moments, a perfect kiss at the end (or maybe a perfect almost kiss, whichever you find more romantic), and then they both lean against the door when he drops her off at the end of the night, and you just know he’s gonna call, or she’s going to hit him up on Facebook, and while the rest of their relationship will have some funny ups and downs (a la Ross and Rachel on Friends), they end up living happily ever after in the end. You know the one!
3.) Go speed dating. Nothing better than meeting a couple dozen men that aren’t right for me in one night. And, I’ll have plenty of stories for the blog, I’m sure, about the losers that go speed dating. Oh me? I’m not a loser, I’m doing it as a dedicated blogger.
4.) See a matchmaker. This one will require me to fall into some money first, but I think it sounds amazingly fun. Even more fun? Seeing the Millionaire Matchmaker. Just sayin’.
5.) Go on a blind date. And I mean a real blind date – no Googling eachother, no Facebook stalking, no driving by their work every day to make sure they don’t seem crazy (or maybe because you actually are crazy enough to drive by their work daily). A blind date like back in the day when there were no phones, no Internet, no TV, certainly no Twitter, and a farmer from one village would set his son up with a farmer’s daughter from another village and it is a total crapshoot what you end up with. That kinda blind date.
6.) Go on the Bachelor. How amazing would it be to hang out with a dozen or so bitchy women fighting over the same man, who no one has really had a chance to get to know halfway decently, but he’s cute enough, has a job, passed ABC’s background check, so he must be great enough to fight over his hand in marriage? Whoops … I mean (especially since I’m really considering applying LOL), how amazing would it be to find the love of your life on ABC’s The Bachelor – possibly the best show that ever existed? Watch it on ABC, Monday night at 8 p.m. (7 central).
7.) Think for a few minutes that I’ve found the “one.” Even though I never thought that “the one” even existed, finally meet him, have a few crazy weeks with him, neglect the blog, my friends, my life, and maybe even if I get my heart broken (again), at least feel happy that I know it’s possible to love again. Because I have no false illusions that the next guy is gonna be “the one,” but it’d be great to know that love is still possible.
8.) Sleep in the middle of the bed. Why still sleep on what used to be “your side” leaving the other side of the bed vast, empty and downright sad? Sleep in the middle, spread out and make it almost physically impossible for anyone to spend the night in your bed again. Especially your drunk friend who can’t drive home because she had too much wine at your house. Make her sleep on the couch. Enjoy your bed, because you too probably had way too much wine but at least you are at home, in your bed, and not on the couch.
What am I missing on my dating “bucket list”?
