    Much like querying, my experience is that dating is highly overrated.

    I only just realised I have more than 11K posts. When I get past 20K, I want a party.

    Dating is SO overrated. Ugh. I have a 100% record of breaking up with guys 'cause they're so BORING. And TIME-CONSUMING. Hello, I am a busy woman with many things to do!

    BECAUSE I DON'T HAVE BOYFRIENDS WHO LOOK LIKE THAT.

    Ahem.

    I try come across as a very confidant, strong-willed, intelligent, ambitious young woman, and there are guys who are attracted to that.

    However, most of those guys are 'too old' for me.

    In my age group, there are way more guys attracted to my ass.

    Unfortunately, I get bored very fast and when a guy asks me out, I don't hear "I like your ass", I hear "I LIKE YOU 'CAUSE YOU'RE PRETTY AND SMART. I have a car and will bring you places and buy you things" and I say "sure! sounds like fun!"

    But then he wants to be dating and kissing and shit all the time, and I'm like "If I'm going to take time out of my precious schedule to do this shit, I'm going to do it with someone I actually like, thank you very much."

    AND THIS IS WHY I'M A TERRIBLE DATER.

    If all a guy wanted to do was kiss all the time and have NO CONVERSATION/FUN, I would get so bored.

    The conversation bored me too. I was like, "I'm dating you 'cause I'm BORED, not 'cause I care about what you have to say."

    I'm a bit of a terrible person.

    But no, generally my problem is that I am casually dating the guy and he is seriously dating me, and we have miscommunication problems.

    I'm getting the impression we wouldn't be friends IRL.

    Please tell me if I'm wrong.

    OH, no. I'm a totally different person to my friends!

    I believe I am a really good, encouraging, kind, respectful friend!

    ...as a girlfriend, I'm something like Haruhi Suzumiya with Kyon (look it up).

    But I mean, I've never been in love. When I date a guy I actually LIKE (not just out of boredom) I'll probably be a good girlfriend.

    NOW LET'S ACTUALLY FIND A GUY I LIKE

    (guys I've honestly, sincerely had romantic feelings for and *thought* I was in love with: 1)

    ETA: I'm a very nice friend, but there are many people scared of me because the way I act here online? With all caps and randomly jumping up and down? THIS IS NOT AN EXAGGERATION OF MY IRL PERSONALITY.

    I'M A VERY INTENSE HYPERACTIVE PERSON.

    AND I HAVE A BAD HABIT OF SHOUTING "I LOVE YOU LET ME HUG YOU" ALL THE TIME.

    HULLO, El!

    I'm sitting in science class, and our science teacher is in DC so we're just chillin' like villains.

    I want to be writing, but I need to wait for my brain to catch up with me. Up to a point, the plot moves along just great, then there's a giant patch of what the eff happens here. The further I go, the more splotches there are and I can't deal with writing that at the moment...

    I wrote a strange flash fiction thing for the March challenge, though. At least I did something productive today.

    On an unrelated note, I love it when the beggars on Fable give my character things. It doesn't make sense!

    There are some people I like hugging and some people I don't. It's very strange, and has nothing to do with how much I like them and everything to do with how physically comfortable I feel with them hugging me.

    I like hugging people who are warm.
