One cold November night me and A were getting Mexican and I blurted out an idea “I think I’m going to start an anonymous blog.” And before I could finish my sentence A dropped her
free chips and salsa and stated “I want an anonymous blog, lets do it together.”
And at the moment the idea of Kissing and Other Disasters was born. It took about a week or so to come up with a name and we debated about how bold we should be.
What would be okay to tell the world about?
First dates? Okay
One night stands? okay
Period sex? Okay
Our only rule was that our blog was going to be anonymous and we could talk about anything we wanted. And yeah, we held back a little bit… I still didn’t blog about the one night stand a had with a random boy I met on a Tuesday, but I would blog about the horrible first date I had.
It was great. It was freedom.
Then my sister found my blog.
And then I wanted to meet my fellow dating bloggers.
And then I started to agree to go on dates with boys who knew about my blog.
And then I had a mental freak out.
crap, my blog is less anonymous now.
I don’t want to date guys who know about this blog.
You know why?
Bc I can’t honestly blog about someone who knows about this blog.
I have to PG it up.
If I’m really into a guy I have to pretend that I’m not that into him and if I don’t like a guy how do I write about it without hurting their feelings?
And there are way too many good stories/post wasted because of this.
You guys will never hear my Condom Boy story that my work friends love so much or how I blame the Jewish G-d for getting me drunk one Sunday night which resulted in a make-out session and a sleepover where I couldn’t move until 5pm the next day.
I don’t want to date someone who has read through this blog, I would rather tell them about my “kissing and other disasters” on a personal level once we are comfortable with each other.
I have a new rule:
No more dating guys who read this blog. *sorry guys*
It is anonymous for a reason and there are plenty of guys in this city I can date without having to flirt with them over email or twitter before agreeing to go on a date with them.
not to mention Guys of DC: do you really want to read about ever flaw (or perk) of the date we went on?
