Attention Ladies: I'm available again!

Ah, well.

After two dates, a ton of back-and-forth e-mails and quite a few phone calls from her at all hours of the day, it's over between me and the liberal lawyer.

I was nice. I was diplomatic. I never brought up politics or guns and we never talked about either subject. Instead, we talked about things like travel, her life plans, movies, music, food, etc.,--all that stuff that (most) gals like to talk about. But then last night, after she called me and we made plans for a day out this week-end, she asked me about something that I told her on our first date.

"So when you said that that car took your leg off, how bad were you really hurt?"

I told her that it was just what I'd said it was--my leg was gone. Nothing there now but carbon fiber and steel.

"But I thought that it was just a figure of speech. You walk just fine," she said, sounding surprised. "And you do all those things: running, biking, hiking. How do you do all that?"

"I do those things because I want to do them that bad," I said. "You got to want it, and you can do anything if you want it bad enough."

Well she said that she was impressed, and that it was admirable--all the usual stuff. And I actually bought it, because this gal is one of those liberal touchy-feely types who loves kids, advocates for the homeless, and subscribes to so many other liberal causes, either with her money or volunteer time. So it was a bit of a surprise to get an two-line e-mail from her an hour and a half after we made our week-end plans, telling me that she didn't see us going forward and wishing me well. I guess just the idea of dating a guy with GASP! one leg was just too much for her, even if that guy actually does all of those outdoor fitness things that she kept saying that she wanted to take up but never got around to starting.

I guess that I should be mad or hurt, but honestly, I guess that I'm relieved that she showed me what she was made of early on. And screw her--I mean it's not like she was a lingerie model or even an Airframe and Powerplant mechanic or anything. She was just a lawyer, and one who thinks that Obama was a good choice for president. Hell, I can do better.

So ladies, if you're local or willing to relocate, and you can cook, are good at house cleaning, own guns, ride motorcycles and look good in a bikini, drop me a line. And by all means, send pictures of the motorcycle.


  1. Better sooner than later, just sayin... BTDT, NOT going there again.

  2. Bet her list of expectations for The Perfect Man (to which she is of course entitled) is a lot longer than her list of what SHE has to offer.

    I predict cats in her future.

  3. Typical NIMBY liberal. Screw her. If I had a sister I'd so introduce you.

  4. Find yourself an ugly one, brother.

    Seriously. Pretty girls are nice to look at, but I wouldn't want to marry one.

    (Jesus, don't tell my wife I just said that...)

  5. They say opposites attract, and maybe they do. But common ground always seemed like a better place for two people in a relationship to dwell, at least in my way of thinking. Just from what little I read about this I think there was a little too much "opposites" going on here.

    Unlike Six, I DO have a sister. Not going to introduce you, though, because you've always been nice to me and I wouldn't do that to you :)

  6. Wow, what a shallow loser of an individual. How sheltered must she be to not know that there are many individuals who are missing limbs that lead exactly the same lives as the rest of the world. Some that even ended up that way from protecting her sorry ass while under military orders.
    And then to break it to you in an email. What a beyotch.

    She doesn't even deserve this post.
    I am not sure if she ever met Murphy, but I would bet the farm that he would NOT have liked her from the getgo or would have figured her out early on. So let's be honest then, it never would have worked out for that reason alone.

    The fact that she's a liberal, Obama supporter should have told you everything you needed to know about her. So I guess we shouldn't be surprised at her cowardice.
    Move on. And you might want to tell your "settin'" up friend, to do a better screening job when he subjects you to these blind date options.

    Oooh, I am soooo mad!
    Find a girl who can look beyond the exterior. And preferably one who at least knows how to load her own gun. ;-)

  7. It sounds as though a certain lawyer has problems dealing with reality. Her loss of course but people in day dream land miss out on actual life.

  8. WHAT! WHAT! What a freaking moron and a disgrace to all women - liberal or not. Good grief, her reaction should have been (if she had a brain) was WOW you learned to do all that stuff with one leg! Holy Crap! that is Awesome! Evidently, you have drive, determination, and heart.

    But no, she was too damn dumb.

  9. Or maybe she found your blog? Either way, canceling like that is very rude.

    Good luck finding a nice lady who isn't already taken and will tolerate Murphy's shenanigans.

  10. Lawyers... Hrmph. ;)

    Seriously, ignorants come from all walks of life. You certainly don't need that shit in your life.

    She's a shallow bigot, pure and simple.
    Or perhaps not pure, just simple.


  12. That sort of attitude is just the tip of the iceberg. You're MUCH better off without her.

  13. Guess that kind, warm-hearted liberal was just an intolerant, prejudiced fake. Funny the lessons life brings. (You're lucky, but you know that.)

  14. Better comment: Bite her, Murphy!

  15. I'm thinking you should go to Camp Perry for the National Matches to find what you're looking for. I can tell you I know of one person that found his wife there. It can happen! And you'd be shooting at the matches. What could be better?

  16. Ah, crap Murph! Well I give you props for going anyway and best to know sooner rather than later. Last date I had was some time ago with about the same results. Uh, you are 40+ year old, a city council woman and you want to talk about playing flip cup? Really?!?!?

    I've given up. I return to the Fortress of Solitude and find something of amusement that I can usually turn off!

    If Murphy did bite her he would need a trip to the vet.He would need a shot to cure liberal rabies.

  18. Dude. You are lucky you found this out before it went further. You have better things to do than invite that level of shallow into your life. Contemplating mushrooms growing in your navel would be better than putting up with her.
