Today was my first day of vacation, which consisted of me being a slowly (and painfully) unraveling ball of stress. It seemed the best course of action was to watch TV. Late in the afternoon I caught an episode of a new show on Bravo called “Miss Advised”. It’s a known trope that dating columnists, and match makers tend to go home alone.
However, this show has found an extremely dysfunctional trio. I’d be terrified as a single person to do anything that they recommend. The dating expert, Julia, chased a guy around the room begging for a kiss in one episode. The match maker, Amy, went on a date with her ex-boyfriend a year afraid moving to Saudi Arabia without telling her. Then the sex expert goes out with another sex expert who has “Kissing Tourette’s” and is amazed that him and his poly girlfriend are incredibly creepy.
These women are what I feared I would become as a teenager. Completely desperate!
Above is one of the most amazing train wrecks I have ever seen on TV. For so many reasons I have to make a list:
- Spin the bottle is a bad idea with four people.
- Especially when two of them are already banging and the other two are on a blind date.
- Even worse when over the age of 15 (the only exception being college keg parties)
- If you don’t get the lip kiss, you’re not going to get one.
- Don’t ask again.
- Don’t start chasing the guy around the room.
The show was a real self-esteem booster as it made me realize I am not all that bad at this dating and relationship thing. I’ve been madly in love for over 3 years. Maybe I do have something to say about all of this. So I’m going to make a few posts over the next few months about what I know.
At the very least it will be better than these chicks.
