"Kathleen is that rare individual whose mere presence lights up a room." - no seriously someone actually once said this about me

I went on a date last night.

It was really good but now I’m worried he’s not going to call because I didn’t go home with him. Which is better than his not calling after I had gone home with him but still. I like this person so I’m going to think about this until I either hear from him or the requisite three days pass without hearing from him. The good news is that there are apparently attractive single men In New York who are age-appropriate and have good jobs, or at least one of them. Who might not call me because I wasn’t ready to sleep with him yet. I don’t even know.

I also posted that link to FB

and a dude I know made a comment about comparison syndrome that I don’t think is particularly relevant to what I wrote. I mean, I don’t expect everyone to like or agree with my writing, and I know that putting stuff on the Internet means receiving criticism, but I just don’t even understand the point he was trying to make.

Every day I seek out ways to grow and change, to broaden my perspective on the world, to better understand the future, to become more interesting and complex, to be a better version of the person I was yesterday, and I need to be with someone who does the same. I want to marry someone I can build something with, bounce ideas off of, talk to for hours and still not want to sleep for fear of missing out on something going on inside of his head. I love to be alone more than almost anything else and I want to find the one person I could be with all the time and feel equally at peace. I want someone whose brain moves faster than mine and in a million different directions so that I have to get smarter just to fucking keep up. I want someone who plans for the future — not just his own future but for what the world will look like 5, 10, 20 years out. Someone who ravenously devours information, who quietly analyzes everything he takes in but in a way where I can see the wheels turning in his eyes.

And if I don’t meet this person, my backup plan is that I will become her. My backup plan is that I will spend my life with ME, and I will only let in a person who can compete with that scenario.

I wrote a post on Medium about not settling.

do men have resting bitch faces as well or do they not have negative characteristics ascribed to them for putting on a neutral rather than a deliriously happy facial expression

Omg when I was in Paris some old dude yelled “SMILE it’s not so bad” or the equivalent in French at this chick and I was like oh great dudes are dickwads like that everywhere

I will hate your stand up special if:

haygirlhay:

  • You make a women-be-shopping-esque “joke”
  • There are many hackneyed stories about how many vaginas you’ve been in
  • Puppets. Nope.
  • You get progressively louder/more shrill until by the punchline you are  actually screaming and screeching
  • 80% of your material is dick/jerk off jokes
  • Physical comedy doesn’t come naturally yet you’re trying really hard to make it happen
  • An acoustic guitar makes an appearance. How folksy (gun emoji).
  • You have elaborate facial hair
  • There is a chain wallet on your person
  • Any combination of the above

On the plus side, after watching New In Town I am actively seeking John Mulaney as a best friend.

All of this.

The perfect slug pants are just $12.95 from H&M. Obviously perfect for laying on the couch (or working from the couch, ahem), but the black version could be worn out and about with a pair of sandals, a black tank, a light scarf and a fedora. Summer slug.

Re blogging to remember to look at as field pants for this summer.

Have been searching for another pair of business sweatpants. These will do.
