100 Dates

I stumbled - ok googled- across a blog about someone attempting to go on 100 dates. He's not doing so well. I've been thinking about trying that myself - being newly divorced what have I got to lose (besides my dignity, self-esteem, and pride?)? But I'm trying to figure out the definition of "date". Do old friends you have no real interest in count? Maybe you'd be interested in them afterward so is it a date retroactively? Or is a date any organized activity where you are eligible and the other person is eligible and you are by yourselves together on purpose? Or does it have to do with the intent or motive? Dictionary.com says a date is "An engagement to go out socially with another person, often out of romantic interest." Wikipedia defines it as "A social outing with a current or potential lover or spouse; see courtship."

That doesn't help me much.

By the way, I have date number 1 (and maybe date number 2) this coming weekend depending on your definition. I'll keep you posted.

Hey Sass,

Thanks for your words of encouragement. I think dating is probably easier in the US. For some reason we just don't have it in our culture where I am.

As for your friends in the two camps, why can't they all just be happy for you to be out of a relationship that made you unhappy?

You keep going on your quest and I'll keep going on mine. I'll make sure to stay up to date on where you are but I wish you oh so much luck.

Remember, not all men are bastards but the ones who make you feel like shit probably are.
