Is one of your New Year's Resolution to get out there and DATE more? No, I don't mean turning on a social media app and organizing a meeting with the abs that are 3500 feet away. I mean dating, getting to know someone, having a date with food, out in public, being seen with someone else.
All of that may be easier said than done. Some of us have traits that cause others to shut us off even before getting to know us. With the 60% purchase of GRINDR by the Chinese, maybe "no fats, no fems, no asians" will be just "no fats, no fems" from now on. I'm overweight so I know that is a huge turn off for some while the belly is a turn on for others.
But what about those other things that a guy does that may be considered a deal breaker? What about his profession? Are we all out to snag the doctor, the pharmacist, the lawyer, the nurse, the mortician, the professional sports player? Do we run away from other types like retail, gas station attendant, the lawyer, the mortician, the hair stylist, the sanitation worker? You like those lists of stereotypically better or worse jobs? I don't either.
Our good friend Miss Haley Star just released a new video, "Dating Drag Queens." Is this a "hellz to the no" for you when it comes to dating? Are you one to judge the book by its sparkly amazingly contoured appearance?
Here is what Miss Haley Star and special guest Davey Wavey have to say about Dating Drag Queens.
"I feel as though so many people are so quick to judge when it comes to dating. Regardless of the fact I'm a drag queen, people need to be more open and much kinder in the dating scene. Just because I wear a dress a few nights a week doesn't make me any less of a man – in fact, it probably makes me more of a catch than that Grindr hookup you had last Thursday. At the end of the day, get to know a person inside and out before jumping to judgment – you never know what you'll find." – Miss Haley Star
Many of us judge a book by its cover or bank account and then hate when it is done to us. Are we saying stretch your boundaries and take a drag queen out for a date or two? Excuse me, take a nice man out on a date or two that also happens to perform in front of live audiences on occasion? That's your call. Are we saying get rid of the "no fats, no fems" line in your profile, which is usually the only line in your profile? No, we are not. You definitely need to be comfortable with whom you spend your time with in the hopes of making something happen. All we are saying is, if it's broke, fix it. If you are not having the luck you want and you didn't in 2015, 2014, and 2013, maybe it's time to increase the size of your dating pool by branching out a little bit. Give other humans with head shots a chance.
Here's to one of my college gal friends. I remember attending her wedding weekend in Pasadena / Altadena, California a handful of years ago. It was a great wedding with her Filipino family joining together with his Korean family. She confided in us that she NEVER considered or pictured herself dating a Korean, but she found true love in him. I thought that was so touching and it just goes to show, we might be missing out on the love of our life if we need litmus paper to find the correct date.
So go out, give dating a go and take a couple of steps outside of your well defined comfort zone. Who knows what will happen.
