Dating...It's a Thing We Do / by Ricardo Marquez

Not a day goes by where I don't see a tweet or Facebook status about dating. IT'S A HAWT TOPIC AMONGST YOUTHS. Some of us hate it. Some of us love it. But, it's a thing we all pretty much have to do. And honestly it's kind interesting to hear/read everyone's opinion of it. 

Does dating suck? Sometimes it does but sometimes you get a terrible slice of pizza. Does that mean you should never eat pizza again? Nah, fuck that. One bad slice isn't going to stop me from enjoying god's greatest gift to man. My issue with dating is that no one has any clue what is going to happen. It's exciting but at the same time, I'M TRYIN TO PLAN MY LIFE AND CAN'T WASTE IT ON SOMEONE WHO THINKS I'M #2. If we all knew how every single Tinder swipe, Ok Cupid Message, DM slid into your inbox or even every bought drink was gonna turn out, dating would just be... boring. We'd all have no stories to tell and cry about over some Cool Haus Ice Cream Sandwiches.* 

Dating is fun. It's a good time to get to know a stranger or a friend on a deeper level other than "HEY SO UH DO YOU LIKE PIZZA? OH MY GOD I DO TOO". NO SHIT THEY LIKE PIZZA EVERYONE ON THIS FUCKING EARTH LOVES PIZZA. But thanks to dating, you can find someone who also enjoys pizza with applesauce. 

As a single 30-year old goober who's done this a few times, don't beat yourself over dating. Have fun and don't take everything too seriously. Sometimes the timing is never right, they live in another state/country or shit, they just don't feel the same way BUT YOU KNOW WHAT, all that stuff gives you a new story to tell while you're chowing down on some Cool Haus Ice Cream Sandwiches.**
