Yay, a new game! Thanks Rory, for tagging me. I won’t be tagging anyone, but this is fun and I hope peeps will voluntarily choose to participate. Just pick a word that comes to mind and jabber on a bit about it, all philosophical like. Obviously, mine will be obsessively themed and not random cuz that’s how I roll.
A is for all the annoying men on dating sites.
B is when they bark questions at you, like sea lions in a fight.
C is for closet, as in the one some are still trapped (not that there’s anything wrong with that 🙄).
D is for the double standards that they hold,
While E is how you must appear eager but not too desperate or too bold.
F is for the family they won’t introduce you to, while swearing they’re so into a future with you.
G is for glam, which is how they want you to look,
And H is their hope you’ll be a top-shelf cook.
I is for ice, as in the diamond you won’t get,
Since J is the job he hasn’t quite nailed yet.
K is the knife with which you want to stab him in a rage,
Cuz L stands for the fact that he lied about his age.
M is the money you’ll be spending on the date, since he “forgot his wallet” and was two hours late.
N is for the naked selfie he requested;
O is for the unfortunate one he texted 🤮.
P is for persistent, borderline stalking,
And Q is for the quiet guys who do no talking.
R is for rightwing conspiracy loons,
While S is for lefty snowflake maroons.
T is for tired of not meeting my dream man;
No one out there gets a U for understand.
V is for the world’s smallest violin, since this is not as bad as it might have been.
W is for what if I’d met Mr. Dreamy, but it turned out he was allergic to G? 🐱
Then I’d have a third X husband to add to my pile of romantic fails and sads.
Y for best not to dwell on yesterday (or god forbid join any new dating sites today!),
But instead zero in on our goals and ideals, which should be, I suggest, buying my new poetry book with some zeal!
