More on SNAGS

So I'm not as anti-Sensitive New Age Guys as some of my galpals are. Perhaps that's because I've never dated one. However, a friend of mine recently told me that her current beau was on a date with her ex, a SNAG extraordinaire, one who wanted to talk about the status of the relationship and the depth of their feelings daily. Current beau and former beau are friends, so current beau decided he needed to tell the ex about this new relationship. In order to do that, he decided to take former beau for a walk and then to a movie. 

I guess that's where SNAGs veer to the left of the guys I've dated. Rather than a walk, a talk, and a flick, there would have been a shot, a beer, a confession, another beer, a punch, a makeup shot, a hug, several more beers and a game of pool ending with someone falling over. That's my guess anyway.

This sounds like the beginning of a beautiful bromance.

I wonder if they compared notes. Fuck. Dating is weird. Like really weird.

Ha ha! Compared notes, like, "So, don't you love it when she tickles your ..."

It bothers me that I find the drunken punching guy so much hotter than the touchy-feely guy. Why must we be such clich├ęs?

I feel Prof. Cusack in his course titled "high Fidelity" clearly shows the uselessness of revisiting your top five emotional break ups, "as dates." Nice guys finish last because the world just ain't a nice place anymore and I think that's why dating is so wierd lately. I feel its best to just decide if they are your friend after you figure out if anyone got phucked over so bad they no longer qualify. Use dating to figure out what it means to be someones closest friend and then if you take that walk/dinner/movie.. don't feel bad if you find yourself screwing against amongst the trees as that person might be the one still..
Yeah.. Dating is just wierd...
