So it's happened. A self-described "critical blog analysis" blog-review blog reviewed us. Wha? Yeah, exactly. A blog about blogs reviewed our blog. Stupid blogosphere.
But get this! They didn't like us.
They said things like:
"The main problem is that the stories aren't crazy or over the top enough. I know some really strange stuff happens in the world of dating, I just know it! It's just not getting reported, obviously. The sort of stuff you'll find on Dating is Weird is your average, every-day kind of weirdness. Yes, the stories are strange... But they're very believable. When I read a blog like this I wanna be like 'He did what!?' and 'She touched what!?' and 'No way!'"
They also said, "This blog journals hundreds of strange / bizarre / funny / 'zazzy' dating stories."
First of all, what the fuck is zazzy? Does anyone know? Can someone help me out? Cause maybe I'm so boring and lame and too believable to know what zazzy implies.
And secondly, hundreds? Um no. We just broke 100 stories here at Dating Is Weird. If you're going to review a blog critically, get your facts right. Maybe I'm just a stickler for accuracy, call me General Eric Shinseki, but it's not hard to count to 100. I just did and it only took a minute.
And finally (though I could go on) if the stories here are the "average, every-day kind of weirdness" of dating, thank fucking god I'm not dating you Drew. Because pissing the bed, farting while going down on a girl, going on a date with a homeless bum and shitting in the hood of your ski suit while trying to pick up a snow bunny are NOT average, every day type of events.
Thanks for the review though!
P.S. In the email he sent me, he said and I quote verbatim, "Your blog has been reviewed! Again, I wouldn't take the review too seriously. Enjoy"
Good thing even they don't take themselves seriously.
