The Wrath of Blog II: Dating Policies

Read The Wrath of Blog I, here.

Blog Policies with respect to respecting the men I'm dating:

1. If it's over, and things ended badly then it's all fair game. Don't date me if you plan to be a jerk because you will end up eviscerated on here. Warts and all. Though pseudonymously. Not so much out of concern for the jerk's privacy but my own. Often, I don't want to publicize whom I've dated, many a men did not make me proud.

2. If it's over and you were good to me, I will be charitable in my posts about you. So most everything is still fair game though you won't come out looking bad. And I will try to respect shared intimate information by not writing about it. Also sticking to pseudonyms only rule.

3. If you dated me and find yourself discussed here and you don't like it, email me. I'll consider removing the posts from public eye. Whether or not I do and the degree of haste to which I comply depends on how much I still like you. (See rules 1 and 2).

4. I consider the foibles of initial courtship to be public information. Men aren't supposed to know about CitC at first but it seems that some do, due to the success of this beastly blog. Having become aware of that fact, then obviously if I like someone and we are in pursuit of each other I will make every effort not to humiliate him. However, I think almost everything people do is funny and I'm not sensitive so I may be unaware that I'm writing something embarassing. I am in fact shameless online so my boundaries may not coincide with most normal people's. In that case I would ask that the injured party email me and I will quickly remove the offensive material. (Use my personal addie for a more immediate response.)

5. Once a relationship develops, I promise to respect all requests for privacy. Until it's over. (See 1 and 2.) So if you're my boyfriend and you don't want to end up on here then you'll have to marry me. Yes, this is a bribe, my ovaries hate me.

*These policies are subject to revision and addition (some rules I had to learn along the way so I apologize for past indiscretions.)

two posts in one day - feeling a wee bit manic are we? lol. ALl I have to say is when you find the guy for whom you'll give up the blog, I'll be happy for you and selfishly sad for myself. Rock you do, but most of all you're real in a crazy sorta non real kinda way!

This b l o g reminds me at times of the cinematic feature 'Something's Gotta Give' in some ways. At other times I see a resemblance to 'Il Postino' and metafore.

Anon,
That's interesting, I saw Il Postino once when it was in the theaters. I haven't seen the others. So I'm curious what the resemblance might be.

JL,

You haven't seen 'Something's Gotta Give'? That's a New York/Hamptons story right?, about a writer, and there's some computer interaction, a relationship drama, you'd like Keanu Reeves, there's some psychological references from the daughter etc. I had to watch it twice before I liked it. I don't pay close enough attention to catch everything the first time. I want to know where Diane Keaton was eating with her ex, his fiance and her daughter in the city. It looked like a nice place.

The 'Il Postino' reference was related to Communism, and writing in my mind. 'Metafore' was just the word in Il Postino that described what the poet was teaching the mailman. I wasn't referencing metafore as a movie.

To answer my own question about 'something's gotta give', they were eating on a set. Duh. I thought Spiderman was real too.

OK, there was another post on this blog that is no longer here. I realize it was meant to be a personal message, but it was one of the more emotionally moving things I've read here.

So, any response to the other post from the person to whom it (the post) was intended?

Mike,
20 minutes after I posted it I decided not to be such a loser dork that I have to post something anonymously to someone who may not even be reading to tell him he should call me and ask me over to his place. I just called him myself. I had a fine weekend.

'Something's Gotta Give' sounds interesting. I'll see if Netflix has it. I just joined this weekend because my new neighborhood has no movie rental stores. Except the one for Kung-Fu and P*rn. I went in there but didn't find anything to my tastes, and Netflix is cheaper than cable. Network television is killing my soul. Props to PBS at channel 13, I love you. Except on Saturday nights when I'm alone and you show cheesy old movies. Then I'm forced to flip around the syndicated sitcoms. 'Getting lucky" on weekends means one of the sitcoms made me laugh.

But I digress. I should have known metafore was not a movie since you did not capitalize nor put it in quotes. I obviously didn't remember much from the movie.
