I’m A Dating Dope

Hi everyone, my name is Corey. I’m a 23 year old girl, and I am just starting my third year of law school at a university somewhere in the Northeast (i’m not going to tell exactly where!). OK, my name isn’t actually Corey — all names on here have been changed to protect the innocent (or guilty, as the case may be). I’ve always wanted to write a blog (as if I don’t have enough writing to do as a 3L), and I couldn’t resist the invitation by DatingDope’s owners to write about my dating travails. I’ve been told I am a nice looking girl, I stay in shape and guys (pigs) are always staring at my boobs — so why am I still single? My dates seem like one disaster after the next, and sometimes I feel that I’ll never meet a decent guy.

I’m not asking for much — just a very smart, successful guy who is also good looking, dresses well, has manners and can look me in the eyes instead of my chest as we talk. OK, maybe that is asking a lot. But I refuse to settle!! My last five dates consisted of an egotistical bastard, a geek with a runny nose, a guy who wanted to talk about his last girlfriend all night, a troglodyte with an IQ hovering around room temperature and a guy who asked me to split the check with him at Bennigans. I don’t know what possessed me to accept these dates when asked, or why I attract such losers. Maybe I’m just a dating dope. Part of the reason I want to post here (in addition to the catharsis it provides) is to elicit suggestions from all of you readers on what I’m doing wrong. I am starting to get desperate here!

I have a date with — we’ll call him Robert — this weekend. He found me on Chemistry.com (I’m a cheapskate, I used it during their “free weekend” last weekend!), and he is a 25 year old medical school student. He definitely seems smart, his pictures appear cute — but I don’t want to get my hopes up. I’ll let everyone know how it goes — wish me luck!
