And the big deal is?

I have been single for the majority of my adult life. Save for one lovely relationship, from 18 - 27, I have been single. And I don't think there is anything wrong with me or that.

I date. I get out there and I date. And I can say from experience, for the mostpart, dating sucks.

Awkward meetings, bad restaurant choices, poor conversation, on occassion, prayer - what about this sounds like a pleasant experience?

Granted, there are exceptions. Those first dates that keep getting extended, where the conversation is so good and the beer is so tasting that you think, this dude is totally something special.

But those are few and far between. Believe me. So why on Earth do I want to date more?

Where does this come from, you ask? I am sick of seeing these Lavalife ads. 'Don't be alone'. Ugh.

Shut the fuck up. And it is always a girl in the picture. Like they are holding your love in the palm of their hand.

Ugh. So yes, that is the lesson of the day: Dating is the worst thing ever. Most of the time.

Ha! Great rant! Yeah, if you don't want to date - don't! There is not a law or there?

You aren't supposed to tell me that! You are supposed to say, Iris, keep on dating. Plug away because finding true love and getting married is everything anyone could want.
