In the spirit of community service, i decided to take it upon myself to speak the truth about dating for the single ladies out there.
Here it is: you have been lied to. That’s right, the glamorous picture of urban dwelling single ladies painted by tv shows and movies is all false. The dating scene is nothing like that. Sex and The City, it definitely ain’t.
Why you ask? Well, i was just coming to that. To start with, the racks and racks of gorgeous clothes and shoes that fill the closets of those ladies on tv? I don’t know anyone in real life who can afford all that and pay their bills at the same time (at least not on their legal income alone).
As for the endless supply of hunky men to fuel all those shenanigans, my totally unscientific poll of ladies from different countries produced one clear answer: they are nowhere to be found! Maybe they only exist on tv. In the real world, we mostly meet guys that are unavailable whether they’re gay, attached or just have emotional issues. There’s none of that gorgeous stranger nonsense going on either because, as we’ve learnt from the news, you can’t trust strangers especially those who are suspiciously friendly. I mean, who wants to end up strangled by some random they ran into on the street for the sake of a date? No one i know. The truth about living in a city is that everyone has their guard up and sadly, a cute smile is not enough to penetrate.
So there you have it all laid out for you. Before you go comparing your life to that of the Rachels, Carries and Samanathas on your screen, just bear in mind that tv dating does not resemble real life dating in any way whatsoever.
You can thank me later.
