Mismatched

I can't believe I didn't run, not walk, from you on our third date when you bragged about being a good liar. The next weekend, you took me to see that joke band and then casually mentioned on our way out that you had slept with the dorky lead singer. Next date, you got stoned and told me a rambling story about your first fiancé who had tried to control you so you cheated on him. "I love men and men love me," you said, and when I think about it now, I throw up a little bit. I could have put up with the drinking, the mood swings, your vanity, your ridiculous schedule, and how selfish you were in bed if you had not insisted on talking about previous guys you had slept with and how many of them went on to do fabulous things. I used to think to myself: "I wish she would just shut the fuck up. And if these guys were so great, where are they now?" And one more thing, if you slept with as many guys in Seattle as you claim to have, don't worry about trying to conceal the fact that you color your hair. You might as well make the caption in your Facebook profile "The Carpet Doesn't Match the Drapes!"

"how selfish you were in bed if you had not insisted on talking about previous guys you had slept with and how many of them went on to do fabulous things."

Anon might think it was all worth it if he would just put two and two together and realize he just got blessed by a magic luck vagina. Sure, it was attached to a crazy person, but now you get three wishes.

Everybody already knows the correlation between crazy and great in bed. You don't bitch about it; you just kept having mind-blowing sex until you can't take the crazy anymore. Move on, man, you sound like a whiner.

@4: They went on to better lives AFTER leaving her dumb ass.

@7: Lawl, that too.

@10: Are you that excited to exclaim that one woman let you fuck her? Jeezy creezy. I'm sure the novelty will wear off after a few years.

@12, if your roomate's step sister hadn't been spending so much time with her vibrator during her "bathroom breaks" maybe she'd still have that job. All the ecstatic howling she did during her "sessions" could be heard clear out to the office lobby.

Dude's a Bitch, too.

(Not to take away from the genius of Weissman's illustration).

I think I dated that woman. Nice to know she's still talking about me.

She probably says how at ease I am within my skin, how secure I was with our relationship and how much I enjoyed hearing about her past relationships, good and bad.

We had a blast. Her selfishness in bed was a turn-on, for sure. I enjoy a woman who knows what she wants and isn't afraid to ask for or demand it. Yeow.

"I could have put up with the drinking, the mood swings, your vanity, your ridiculous schedule, and how selfish you were in bed if you had not insisted on talking about previous guys you had slept with and how many of them went on to do fabulous things."

Translation: I'm totally down to date a complete asshole as long as she doesn't dredge up personal insecurities regarding my masculinity and sexual prowess.

Wait a minute. If I'm reading this column correctly, when it talks about the drug-induced ramblings and the drinking, what it is really saying is that she in fact uses COCAINE and MALT LIQUOR!

Does writing an I, Anon count as having gone to do fabulous things? 'Cause if so, damn if she wasn't right.

Three dates and you were already putting out? Good luck with that whole rabbit-boiling thing.

That must've been some pretty bomb pussy. I bet she was super fun when she wasn't being crazy. Nothing wrong with hopping on one of those carnival rides every now and then, but we owe it to ourselves to get off when it starts a-shakin.'
