Hmm... The "Burn Notice" scale of dating
I think I have finally found the perfect way to tell whether or not I should go on a date after meeting on-line.
It boils down to this... Would I miss an episode of "Burn Notice," for the date?
And, yes I do have a DVR, however there are certain shows that simply MUST be watched the night they air. For my Roomie and I "Burn Notice" is one of them.
But then I realize that honestly "Burn Notice" and it's Michael Weston hotness and Bruce Campbell camp was simply too high a mark. I mean, with the exception of 2 exs, no old boyfriend would rate a date on this system (which may have been TMI, but hey, I'm a sharer ;-)
Now before you get all 'Carolyn, you are too picky,' remember there is also a dinner at stake. A FREE dinner. At the restaurant of my choosing. So actually this new technique is weighted TOWARDS the guy.
I mean, I WANT to get a free surf and turf meal over-looking the marina.
So after I got off the phone with the last internet 'date.' I thought even with a delicious shrimp and steak dinner: Would I miss "Burn Notice?" Um... no way, no how.
Okay, how about "Royal Pains?" Nope. Come on, the Evan character is sublime and I like to make fun of the medicine.
A repeat of CSI: Miami? No. I would actually rather watch Horatio and his over-dramatic sunglasses acting than go out with this guy.
I think this technique is so effective I want to share it with the men. You know, to help them up their game.
Then, I thought that idea through.
What would I say? "You seem like a nice guy and all, but I'd rather sit through the 'music video' portion of C.S.I. where they clean a gun to hard rock... that I've seen BEFORE... then go out with you." #don'tgetmestartedonceitisfallandCastleison
Um. True, but TMI :-) #see #Iamlearning :-)
Until next week!
You know something you might like to do rather than go on a lame date is read my Patterson-style thriller "Plain Jane!"
