Tip of Our Hats: Dudes Who Go on Dates With Themselves

I know what you're probably thinking, "A guy who takes himself on a date? What a loser! How bizarre!" Maybe you'll even hum the OMC song "How Bizaare" when you hear about the concept. It's an understandable reaction. But, we think he's on to something. Everyone wants someone who will call you back right away, someone who likes the same things you do, and someone who understands you. Well the truth is, that person is most likely YOU!

When he told me how he took himself out to a nice lunch, caught a foreign film, then ran a few fun errands downtown, we knew he was onto to something. Then, after his solo man date, he headed home for a touch of home maintainance to spruce up the old pad. Cheerio, my good man!

I like this. This is really working for me. In fact, I'm starting to get jealous of the relationship he has with himself. And, honestly, he is making every boyfriend I ever had look really bad right now because he takes himself on better dates than most human males take me on.

To date yourself you must have the confidence to sit alone at a movie and say, "table for one" with a smile, because fuck it, you're in the best relationship you've ever been in (minus the obvious things.) So, we tip our hats to guys who make an effort to treat themselves well. If it was good enough for Billy Idol, it's good enough for me. Now, what am I gonna do with this cradle of love in the corner of my room? Maybe I'll put it on Craigslist.

It's nice to know that SOMEONE appreciates it when I go to Beau Monde for brunch by myself and read the newspaper and have a couple greyhounds, because the servers usually look at me like I'm retarded.

I think it definitely takes a man who is confident in himself to rock the solo meal. Solo movie is way easier, and this is a regular pleasure of mine.

I rock the solo meal pretty regularly for lunch... not so much for dinner though for some reason. And I VERY rarely go to the movies with anyone.

I enjoy taking myself out to lunch and reading a good book. I dig a dude who can do the same.

This reminds me of the SATC episode when Carrie decides to date NYC, but soon realizes that even a city can shit on you. Dating yourself is nice, but sucks when you make a nice meal that you end up enjoying the entire week alone with your $7.99 bottle of wine.

I totally take myself out for dates. Well, I did. Now I have to take someone else out for dates and invariably it costs me more money.
