It’s winter. I’m up before the sun is. I’m so vitamin D deficient that I find pouring cereal to be a huge effort, let alone walking to the store, reading things that keep my mind from becoming mush, or looking for women online.
Being single in the winter is a cold road. I am sure all of you single men out there in winter countries know exactly what I mean. These long, dark months are the months I’d like most to spend hibernating with a sexy woman in my bedroom, or on my couch. Wrapped in thighs throughout January, February and March – that’s the best way to stay warm.
Instead, here I am alone again at the beginning of January, having just departed ways with an unhappy woman. I work, eat my soup and try to make an effort to go out with friends. But it’s all so depleting. Having long given up on bar dating in favor of online dating, getting out there isn’t as much about searching for women to go home with, but about continuing to be an interesting and active person. Trust me – even through the computer a woman can tell if you haven’t gotten out of your sweatpants all day and have just been sitting on your couch with you hand down your pants.
So I’ve decided I (we) all need to step up our game. I’ve joined a cross-country skiing group. I’ve made a deal to meet at a book store coffee shop with a buddy once a week in order to discuss politics and find hot shit to read. I’m going to make myself cook gourmet (but healthy) meals three times a week. This, in turn, is going to help me attract higher quality women online.
And yes, finally, I am going to step up my game when it comes to finding women online. I’m going to invest more energy in it, and get more in return, because at least by February, I’d like to be wearing that nice pair of thighs I was talking about.
