When John Hawkins ran his first look at conservative women and dating, I sent a note asking if I had missed a memo and not realized it was sweeps week. It was such an odd post that I assumed our sites were being judged on sex appeal that week. The response he got was fascinating. It got picked up everywhere.
I actually can’t believe the first piece was only a month ago, however… And now he’s back with part two.
I’ll excerpt a bit, but you really should go read it all. There’s some great material in there.
Tell me the worst dating story of your life.
I fell asleep on the guy…. [My cousin] had the brilliant idea of setting us up to go see a play… I’m watching it, it’s warm in the theater, I’m sitting next to him and he’s not talking — The next thing I remember, he’s shaking me awake. I think I was drooling on his shoulder. I was out cold. I was so embarassed.
What do you think the biggest thing women have wrong about men is?
We, in our heads, over-analyze everything that the guy did. The reason that he moved to the couch was because there was more room, not because he was trying to get away from you.
What is the weirdest date you have gone on or been asked to go on.
…An Easter brunch where the guy I was dating told me I’d meet all the other girls he was dating, and sternly warned me I had to be nice to them. Obviously I didn’t go to that gathering. I never signed up to be on The Bachelor!
…The weirdest date I ever went on was when I was in college. I was taken, I swear to God I am not making this up, by a guy from my Spanish class to go to the dump and shoot rats with his friends… I didn’t hit any. I am tender hearted. …I really like shooting, but I don’t like shooting living creatures. …But, I did fire off a handgun or two, at cans.
