I don't remember exactly why I thought this was a good idea (though I think it had to do with a Barbera and a Cabernet Sauvignon), but I decided last night on a bloggy project. That project is for people to explain why dudes should date me. I probably shouldn't talk to my mom when I'm drinking.

See, the thing is that back in the day, when you made it to your mid-twenties still uncoupled -- the little voice in my head snorted when I typed that -- you met potentials not on the internet or at a bar, but through your friends. It was sort of like job interviews -- everyone came with recommendations. Anyway, for some reason, my friends and I thought it would be funny to write me recommendations. Leave your own in the comments, if you like, or email me and I'll post them.

Why, yes, I am having kind of a low self-esteem moment. Why do you ask?

I only know Megan through her work and what little correspondence we've shared... well, that and the flair she has sent me on Facebook. I could sit here and wax poetic about her beauty, rhapsodic about her intellect, or philosophic about her view of the universe. In any age, she would be the kind of woman that odes, sonnets, and testaments would be written about, the kinds that would resonate throughout the ages.

Instead of providing lists of her virtues and attributes, instead of trying to justify why becoming involved with her would be the zenith of rapture, let me put it as plainly as I can: Megan is worth dating because she is a real woman. She is not pretending to be someone she is not. She is not out to impress you. She is not seeking your approval. She is raw energy given female form. She will talk fashion one minute, politics the next, share intimate and sometimes painful details of her life, and do it while drinking and dancing and carousing with the best of them.

Megan is there, open to you, and if you accept the gifts she has to give you without precondition, you will not regret it. If you choose not to, it most assuredly marks you as a fool.

I actually wrote a dating resume, much like a normal resume but to say why someone should have sexy times with me rather than give me a job.

I think the mere existence of such a thing says why I'm not dating.

Megan said...

Ryan: I did once date a guy on the strength of my regular resume, actually.

Nefarious Newt said...

The whole problem with a dating résumé, though, is embellishment. I mean, you know every guy is going to put down attributes like "smart," "witty," "big dick," etc. Then you're right back where you started.

I think you need to go the whole nine yards: résumé, three references (non-family), and a background check. Urine sample optional.

Megan is one of the most clever and funny people I know. Most people who are killing themselves trying are not half as cool as she is. She has an encyclopedic knowledge of politics and filthy sexual references, which she likes to talk about simultaneously. Unlike most ladies, Megan will encourage you to look at her boobs. She's a writer, so you may get to see your name/description in print (hopefully not in Crap Email from a Dude!) She's one of my favorite drinking buddies, and you are damn lucky to have her up there.
