Feast or Famine?

When dating in NYC one thing is always the same as anywhere else in the world – it’s either feast or famine.  There are weeks that go by without any prospects.  Wishing you could meet a new guy.  But, before you know it, there will be a few days in a row when you need to double book yourself with dates for dinners, drinks, museums, concerts, and sporting events. 


A former roommate of mine had triple booked an evening, and I’m still not sure how this darling girl pulled it off.  She met the first guy out for happy hour, then left to meet her second gentleman suitor for dinner, before heading to her final date of the evening for late night drinks.   This pretty lady is usually being pursued by new men – she is not only stunning, but sweet, outgoing, intelligent, and lovely.  What guy could resist?   But, even this sought after beauty goes through dating dry spells. 


When you get a text from the cutie you met at the bar last Thursday night, inevitably your ex leaves you a voicemail that day, and your handsome coworker seems to be stopping by your desk more often with flirty gestures and plans to get together outside of the office.  All of my girlfriends have found themselves in this predicament – too many potential men all at once, or none in sight for long periods of time.

Do you experience feast or famine when dating? xo

  1. This just made me think of stupid bitches that don't eat during dates because they think the guy will look down on them if they do so. FUCKING EAT, ESPECIALLY IF WE PAID FOR IT. EAT MOTHERFUCKER EAT. ..in other news, this had nothing to do w/ the post above.

  2. Well Russ, you can take me out to a nice dinner in the city soon and I'll actually eat. And maybe I'll buy you a drink after ;)

  5. this is a great topic! I remeber Charlotte having this dilemma in a SATC episode too! I think everyone has dry spells no matter how hot they are or not, but then "When it rains, it pours!"

  6. Pretty Cali Doll, sometimes I do feel like Charlotte with this dilemma, but lately I've been more of a Samantha ;)

  9. I am an expert in this area! Either I have ten guys texting, sexting, calling, and stopping by or not a one!!
    It is crazy how it works out. Some people say it is confidence or horomones but I've noticed it is mostly a feast when I am busy, traveling and have a ton going on in my life! So perhaps that makes me more confident but I'm not exactly sure!
