|went to Gap and went crazy|

I work by a Gap. Big mistake. I have been trying to switch up my style a little bit. I have a lot of cut off shorts. Actually WAY too many cut offs. And I don’t also want to look so ratchet. I wanted khaki shorts but not khaki shorts–if that makes sense.

Well Gap was having a 40% off regular merchandise–so I had to take advantage! I bought a lot of things. Some for work and some for the summer. I bought three pair of pants and three pair of shorts. Three tees, a gingham dress and a denim shirt. Oh, and a linen white shirt. It seems a lot but it’s not. I needed light colored clothing for work because most of my work clothes are black and dark. I also wanted some pants that would translate from daytime to happy hour, while still looking cute. So bye bye ratchet shawty this summer. Hello adult Bree. Lmao.

I always have a lot of bottoms and not enough tops. So today I went to H&M and bought some tees. Just white and black basic tees that will go with everything.

I also bought some Vans. They look like Keds. I bought a basic all white pair and a denim pair. And a couple Washington Nationals tees for the Nationals game this Saturday.

The only thing not pictured are the basic tees. They basic white and black and I’m pretty sure you know what they look like.

I have given up… For now

I think I have given up on online dating for now. Too many frogs and not enough princes. And on top of everything, I am extremely busy with my new job and research project that I don’t have the time like I used to to entertain online dating.

The last guy I went on a date with from online dating was a Russian guy. He was nice and went on a couple dates. He was way too muscular and openly stated he took steroids. He was a body builder I think? Not sure but didn’t want to stick around long enough to find out. What turned me off completely was him trying to hook up with me while on my cycle. You barely know me and want to get down and dirty and bloody?! If you are going to do that it has to be with someone you have been with for a while and stuff because that can get awkward real fast. So I never texted him back and he got the hint.

Over the weekend CREB texted me saying he missed me. I have been not replying or texting him for a couple of weeks now to see what would happen. Absence makes the heart grow fonder? Maybe. We talked all weekend and are going to dinner this week after work. Not sure which day we will discuss that later today I guess.

Police officer is over and done with. He’s very inconsistent. Too wishy washy. We were supposed to hang out and then he got pissy when I didn’t want to go all the way to VA. I’m not gonna travel for someone who I’m not interested in.

I’ve just all in all decided to focus on the men I do have in my life and not add any new ones. It was fun. And I’m sure I will pick up again, I’m sure.

The weirdest, most bizarre things I’ve ever been through

Sunday I went on a day date of sorts with a weirdo. At this point in my dating “career” I’m just enjoying free food and a good laugh and not taking dating so seriously. I’m in a little triangle of sorts and just want to see where it takes me.

So anyway, a random ginger messaged me on OKCupid and his message was too funny to pass up.

20140407-205207.jpg

See? I mean who says something like that! It was so creative I had to see what this guy is all about. So after some light conversation and what not we decided to go for breakfast after my run. I picked a place close by my house (walking distance) and we had bagels and stuff.

The conversation was weird. He kept telling me about all these train wrecks he went on dates with. One girl he said asked him to buy a pregnancy test for her and if it came out true, would he be the baby father… I hope he was making this shit up because that’s just RATCHET.

SO if that wasn’t bad enough, he starts trying to take pictures of me! And showed me his wallpaper which was a picture of myself. Who the fuck does that?!

You’d think that by this time I would’ve ran away. No. I just had to complete this date-if only to get a good story. So we decided to walking in Bethesda. We went into a book store and just ambled around for a while. Then back to Rockville where we went to Matchbox for some pizza. Boy was that pizza good!

Anyway he proceeds to tell me more stories about girls that he’s dated. He told me that one of the girls reminded his sister of I Love New York (Tiffany Pollard, or whatever her name is). Um, that’s NOT a good thing. She’s ratchet before we started saying ratchet. And then he told me about some other random girl he would blow off work for because she loves being in the club all the time… And then they would go to the mall. At this point I said, “you seem to like a lot of low quality women”. He seemed to love the crazies as well. I was too normal for him.

OMG I didn’t even get on his car!!! It was a fucking mess. There were m and ms in the seat. There was something spilt all over the middle part that had been there for AGES! It was disgusting. From the video he sent me I could tell his house was just as messy as his damn car. It was a disaster needless to say.

Where do people like him come from? Check back for the videos he sent me. I’ll try and post them soon!

The Experiment: Another Update

So anyway, I have been M.I.A because I have been transitioning into a new job and just dealing with LIFE in general. To the person who wrote on my blog doubting that I would get the job. I did, so thank you for all your doubt. Anyway, in my last post I talked about a time with my ex. I have been scaling back on the online dating a little because I want to see what is going on in CREB and Napoleon department. I am a firm believer in things happening for a reason, so there is a reason why he is back in my life and I am going to figure that out. 

A couple of weeks ago I got an message from a guy who wanted to meet up. Now, I realize that most of the people on the site typically want to just hook up, but I would like to think that there is someone on there that is a good guy. Anyway, this guy kept trying to get me to go to his house. Im sorry, I do not care how cute you are, I have to meet you in a public place first. So last night he just said to me, “I am just trying to have sex with you and then probably not talk to you again” I literally LOL’d! I loved him for his honesty, but this is 2014 and I am not going to have sex with anyone I have not met yet. I told him I am sorry I wasted his time and that he should move on. He was cool about it and thats all I could as for.

This other messaged me last night and out right told me he was “so busy and not ready for anything serious”. I was at a point where I have my steady hook partner and I am not really looking but I will entertain a message just for the sake of this blog. I like to see what will make people tick. So I replied, “thats what everyone in DC says”. And then I asked him what he did for fun, he told me nothing to which I replied, “i find that hard to believe”. At this point I had already told him, “just because I was not looking for anything serious does not mean I was going to hook up with him” I think this was something that made him tick and I could tell. Then I said to him, “I am probably busier than you, but I make a lot of time to do fun things”. Another thing that made him tick!! “I didn’t know that this was a contest, but you’re just a student”. Um no sir!! This is where I laid in on him saying, “no I work full time and go to graduate school and I tutor for a non profit”. He called me a bitch… And I just told him that he isn’t used to a girl with a brain obviously…. So then he started saying I had a chip on my shoulder and that I am the problem and all this other stuff… All because I told him I work and go to school and tutor and that I still have time to do fun stuff. It was hilarious. Because he was mad that I called him an ass. But he forgot the fact that he called me a bitch. I guess he is looking for a bimbo and I clearly do not fit that category. He is mad because game recognize game. I told him, “thank you for giving me material for my blog” and he abruptly blocked me! I love it.

Like I said, right now I am just focusing on me and this new job and the summer coming up. I am seeing where things are going with Napoleon and CREB. That does not mean I will not go out with other people and have fun, but right now I am not looking for anyone else to enjoy my flower. I did go out for drinks on Monday with a Russian personal trainer. He was nice and sweet and JACKED. But its nothing serious. Just drinks and food and good conversation. I do have to say the communication with Napoleon is different, but we will see what is in store for us. If there is anything.

Case of the EX…

Literally about ten minutes ago (Thursday night) I was having an exchange with my ex Napoleon. It started with him asking to see me and me stating over and over again that I can’t just drop everything to see him. So the exchange went on for about a half an hour and he began to get angry. Something I remember about him, when he doesn’t get what he wants, he gets angry. So we exchanged words back and forth. I said things and he said things. He called me and hung up on me and I called him and he hung up on me again. He wasn’t respecting me having something to do that did not involve him. He’s selfish. Kept telling me I was playing games, but I reality he was playing games. After a few texts back and forth I just left it at that and went to bed. My plan of action was to call him the next day and ask if he he realized all the shitty things he was saying. So the next day I called him. But it was weird because he was in the middle of a Caps game and picked up and held a 10 minute conversation with me. In the past he would just text and say he was out, blah blah blah. He said he wanted to meet up. After the caps game he texted me and wanted to meet up. I was exhausted and in bed. But he was persistent but not the same way as the night before. I told him I was not driving to him exhausted, so he paid for a cab for me all the way to DC. I met him and he immediately took my hand and pulled me in close for a kiss. It was strange. He could not and would not stop kissing me. It was cute. We laughed and talked and just headed straight to bed. We made out for a little while and then we started to get down. Multiple times. Napoleon is not a multiple times a night kind of guy, so I was surprised when he was up for it. We had it again at 4am and then again around 6am and before I left his place for work Saturday. It was intimate and not just hook up sex. He held me all night, which is a rare thing. Usually we cuddle for a little bit and retreat to either sides of the California king. But that night he didn’t even like for me to go to the bathroom. Ugh. Confused.

20140317-190434.jpg

The thing I like about staying at his place is that I can do as I please. Use what I want and he’s ok with that. The next morning I got up and showered and for ready like I usually do. He’s not bothered by it. He does wish I stay longer though. I try not to. I did linger for a little and we talked about a lot of stuff. I played in his hair and slyly asked him “do all the girls play in his hair”. His response “no, I’m a prude” which caused me to laugh uncomfortably. I don’t believe him. But that hair and those eyes…

20140317-190607.jpg

His behavior was different and it confused the shit out of me. Men I know want the “P”, and I get it. But to pay for my cab and get me a car service to get to work the next day is weird. He inquired about my schedule this week and wants to take me to dinner… We will see.

A rather boring post. #sorryimnotsorry

Went on an interview Monday for a position as a marketing assistant at a law firm. Let’s rewind. Last Wednesday I got an email stating this company had received my résumé and cover letter about a month ago and wanted me to move forward and fill out an application they had. The application consisted of formulating a fake tweet, constructing a blog post, and giving some constructive criticism about their website. I submitted the application the next day and got a call back on Friday and scheduled the interview for this past Monday. This is something I really want to do! I was super nervous about the interview and I’m afraid I came off as a stupid person. But I’m usually a charmer in my interviews. The past few jobs I’ve gotten, I’ve been offered the job right away. I was told I had to wait til the end of the week… Ugh. I’m going crazy. I really need this! This would be a push in the right direction for my career. All I can do is hope that God is on my side. So far he’s answers some prayers and has shown me the light in many different ways. If I don’t get it I’ll just have to apply myself in other places. No biggie! (I’m just telling myself that). So all my followers, please wish me luck!

OkCupid vs. Tinder vs. Hinge

I have been in OkCupid for like two or three years. I’ve met a couple good guys in there. The Dean for one. And I find OkCupid to be ok. You have your profile you write stuff and people message you. Most of the time the people who message you don’t even take the time to read what you wrote. And it’s depressing. Now in order to see who may like you, you have to pay money. No thanks. The good thing about OKCupid is that you know someone’s intentions before you go in a date. Meaning, you know if they’re serious or not.

At first I thought Tinder was a “hook up” app. Where would just go in there to hook up. That may the case for some people but not for all. The beat thing about Tinder is the minimalistic profile. I didn’t have to hurt my fingers writing a lengthy story about what I want and what I don’t want. And there’s a few pictures taken from your Facebook profile. Great I didn’t have to find cute pictures of myself. So the person would have to aka questions to get to know you. The other good thing is, creeps can’t be creeps. Meaning, they can’t message you without both of you liking each other. So if that hot guy you slid to the right is digging you, you can’t expect to get a message from him or send him one since the feeling is mutual. The hard parts are cut out for you. The only bad thing is that most people are only there for a hook up. Also I noticed that some of the same people show up again. Has anyone else noticed that?

Now Hinge is trying to be like Tinder. It’s not quite there yet. Plus there’s this thing about inviting friends from Facebook and getting a score or level. First of all why would I want all my Facebook friends knowing I’m online dating? What is this about a level and a score. Then you only get 8 matches a day or something like that… Why are you limiting my matches?! Most of the time when you match with someone you don’t even get a message. So it’s a big waste of time. I only downloaded it because my favorite PR firm suggested it (Small Girls PR). They need to do better. Because I want to delete it.

I’m not even going to talk about POF. It’s a waste and creep/troll central.

Please don’t tell me what I’m studying! Also, this isn’t an interview…

Often when I meet people and men and I tell them what I’m studying in school and what I’m getting my masters in, they seem to act like they know what it is and try and tell me what I’m actually studying. So let’s cut to guy on Tinder. Asked me all the usual questions, the getting to know you kind. So I told him I was studying Linguistics. He goes “what language are you studying”. No my first reaction would have been to say “google linguistics and get back to me” but I’m trying to be positive and what during Lent. So I said “I’m not studying any ONE language. I’m studying how language works in general”. Because if I was studying French I would say I’m studying French! So he goes, “well my job in the army was… And it was called linguistics” my response “yea that a common misconception people have”. Then he goes on to tell me what he thinks it’s about trying to prove me, the person so close to actually having their masters in it, wrong. Right! I hate that stuff. If you don’t know something just say you don’t know it and ask questions about it. Don’t assume you know about it when you don’t and then try and argue your point across to someone who actually does.

The other thing they do to annoy me is try and pull up all these really stupid articles written by non linguists about linguistics topics… Dude, give it up!! If I wanted more reading material I would go study.

Another thing that annoys me is the question about what I’m going to do with the degree. If I haven’t been on a date with you yet, I feel like these questions are not going to get you a date. Period. This is not an interview so stop asking me interview like questions. It’s frustrating. Beyond frustrating.

Before the date, I feel like one should ask light hearted questions. Like “where are you from”, “what’s your favorite food”,etc. that way you know enough about them when you actually go on the first date. Leave the important questions to the first date or the second date, when you actually comfortable with the person. Maybe that’s just me.

My dates with the police officer.

It’s been a while since I’ve posted. I’ve been sock and extremely busy. Since I’m not working a “full-time” job I have found a part time job to help supplement my income with my research assistant job. That’s for another post. Just wanted to briefly update y’all in my absence. I see that I’ve gained some followers and I could not be happier!

So anyway, on to the good shit. So two Mondays ago I went out with the Police Officer. He picked me up after court and we went to a Tex-Mex restaurant near my house. I was hung over from the night before so it was a struggle (that story is for another post). We had great conversation and after lunch we decided to go to the movies. We saw some movie I would never see but it was ok. Then, I realized it was rush hour and didn’t want to send him home stuck in traffic so I offered to take him to happy hour at Buffalo Wild Wings. We had wings and massive ciders. And this massive dessert nachos.

20140305-063544.jpg

They were so good! But I felt like a fat ass after eating them. It was great. I was myself. My weird self around him.

Cut to this Sunday past. We went out on another date. We went to his neck of the woods, Arlington. We went to Bon Chon, which is a Korean wings place and it was delicious.

20140305-063803.jpg

Like so good! There I got a little tipsy and very talky. After two whiskey gingers, who wouldn’t be tipsy and turn into a conversationalist. His house was around the corner, surprise surprise. So we went to his place and he have me more wine. He had a very minimal place. Typical of a guys guy. Of course I did my usual inspection of the place to see if someone left anything behind or if there was a presence of another female. Ladies have been saying they didn’t know their guy was cheating because they’ve been to the guys place. Well I think they need to do a better job of being observant and seeing if there’s a presence. Anyway. So he was cool with me checking it out. I was upfront with him about my intentions and he laughed. He seems innocent enough. We drank wine and I tried to get him to watch Girls. Then he leaned over and kissed me. I wasn’t expecting it. Not at all. So we kissed for a little and he lead me to his room. Now I hadn’t prepared to do anything with this guy so I wasn’t all the way groomed down there. Which didn’t hit me til his face was down there working magic. While he was down there in between breaths, I told him it could not go further. Not because I didn’t want to, but because I’m already sleeping with CREB and that wouldn’t be right. I also got a peak of his member and was disappointed. Nowhere near CREB, not even in the same universe. So he was down there for a while and then it was done. Back to the wine and the Girls. Just as we finished my friends texted me and wanted to get dinner. I was all game and asked him if he wanted to come. He said yea and we for ready and was off. Since we weren’t hungry I figured I would just nibble and drink more. It’s weird that I didn’t even second guess him meeting my friends. It wasn’t a big deal. I warned him that things could get a little weird and he didn’t mind. It was fun. We all talked for a long time, laughed and they asked him questions about his work. I did that thing where I would laugh and lean my head on his shoulder. At the end of the night I was going to have a sleep over with my friends, so we were gonna make plans and rendezvous later. On the way to my house he asked me to stay with him. I didn’t like that he was giving me a time limit. So I refused and didn’t kiss him goodnight. Next day I thought he was mad at me but turned out he was sick and just being unresponsive. He’s not that much of a conversationalist via text or phone when we are not together and that annoys me. I need that conversation or I just going to lose interest. I guess that’s something we could work on. I mean if I decide that this is what I want, that is.

So far another success for Tinder.
