Pollyanna and the Weirdness of Humans: Dating Game edition

Lyda here. This is our weekly “Weirdness of Humans”, with an emphasis on dating. yes, we are going to call it “dating” – just go with me here…

Imagine that you are hearing the Dating Game music, okay?

1) Funny article: advice to 50+ age men on dating, written by a very funny woman. Not really weird, but funny.

2) On the subject of attraction, there is this: Gals send macho men packing for girly guys. Hmmm… I guess that explains Captain Jack Sparrow, yes?

3) But that article is partly refuted by this one: What an ovulating girl wants: Manly men

News flash! One of the scientists in this one said the findings revel that “preferences are not absolute.” Hold the presses!

4) My Conclusion: Science cannot explain the weirdness of the Human Dating Game. It is just too weird for science.

5 ) If your dating problem is shyness, they say you can work on it.

6) And in other dating news: Pa. teacher resigns after porn star date

We’ve all had bad dates, but usually you don’t lose your job over them…

More strange dating tales:

Usually we have at least 10 of the Weirdness of Humans, but I’m on deadline.

So, Pollyanna asks you to contribute to this week’s Weirdness of Humans: The Dating Game edition (soon available in a board game for your at-home pleasure. Uh, that didn’t come out the way I meant it to… or did it?)

Just post a comment with one of your own Dating Weirdness experiences.

C’mon, don’t be shy (see # 5).

Ya’ll know you wanna!

    Gosh, most of my weird dating tales aren’t suitable for family viewing. Time for a little pondering … okay, got one.
    There was this guy I really liked who was Scottish and a helicopter pilot. He came from a reasonably well-off background and ran a flying school. He was charming, sweet, gentlemanly … and scary cheap. He had rented every single freakin’ bedroom in his condo and slept on the couch. Needless to say, he never “got lucky”, although I was very into him at first.

    (No, Lyda, not the Scot I married–the one I married sang “The Lumberjack Song” in its entirety on our first date. In public. How could I not fall in love?)

    I didn’t realize this was family viewing… uh-oh, I might be in trouble. (The Resident Sith Master says it’s too weird to read our blog, so he only reads if I force him to look at an entry that I think is funny.)

    OMG, I don’t remember you ever telling me that! LOL! Well, no wonder you fell.

    I don’t remember the cheap helicopter pilot either. Eh. I would not like to live in a condo where the owner slept on the couch… ugh!

    Either you aren’t sharing, or my brain cells are rotting away… I’m guessin’ it’s Door # 2.

    When I was in college, I went on a blind date with a friend of a friend of a friend. This was ’69 and people did that back then. He was really cute and seemed nice. So we’re riding down main street in Columbia, SC and a car cuts us off. This guy goes crazy. He starts yelling and driving fast and blowing the horn and weaving in and out of traffic. Then he reaches over and takes a gun out of his glove compartment, and at the next traffic light I got out and ran! I went in a restaurant and called my roommate to come get me. Never heard from him again!

    Jane!!!! OMFG!!! Wait, I think I dated that dude. Just kidding… the anger yes, the GUN in the CAR no. Scary weirdness!

    Marin, yes, that guy needs a tatoo on his forehead as a warning to all women. I’ll hold him down for ya 😉

    Oh, yeah, my own Dating Weirdness story…

    Hmm, there was the Egyptian who wanted me to hang upside down by my feet with my ankles strapped in… that was pretty weird.

    Then there was the guy in college who had innumerable roommates (seriously, I counted at least 5 guys there). He told me that whoever had a girl that night used the big bed. I asked him if they changed the sheets each time and he just looked really confused. Ewwww!

    Oh, and the time the borrowed bed collapsed… which I thought was hysterical! I knew I was with the wrong guy when he didn’t laugh. (How could you not see the humor in that?!!?)

    For more… well, see the rest of the blog…

    When I was in college, I had a blind dating with one guy from internet. Before that day we called each other up almost every day. I think he was really cute and smart. So, he invited me at a popular and expensive cafe for dinner. We ate and drank some vine, and after that, just imagine, he told me to pay for a bill!!!
