ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

You know those triptych popcorn containers you see at Christmas? Those mini-barrels of three types of popcorn? They're awesome. However, did you ever notice that there's always one type of popcorn that's gone before you can grab a handful; one type of popcorn that people only eat because the best kind is gone; and one that the family tells to go fly a kite?

That's just an observation. Not a metaphor for online dating.

Here's my big idea: A three-part popcorn container -- but instead of popcorn -- it's filled with cashews, pistachio nuts, and salted peanuts. Think about that for a second. . .

I know, I know, it probably already exists. Look, I'm not trying to make a million dollars with this idea. I'm just trying to change hearts and minds out there. Those popcorn ones cost like twenty five bucks. You could take last year's container to the movies and tell them to fill it up for that price!

It's total madness. Now granted -- cashews, pistachios... these are not cheap nuts. But think, just think. If you simply re-purpose last year's container and go buy, say, forty dollars worth of nuts you (1) help the environment, and (2) add to your holiday joy.

So my work has this parking lot. Anyway, when I walk through the parking lot, I usually find a little pebble to kick around. It's fun. You kick it, walk ten feet, kick it again, walk ten feet, kick it again, and so on. You try not to break stride in between kicks. It's this whole game.

One day I was playing "pebblekick" and I look up, only to see my boss's boss's boss staring at me, confused.

"What are you doing?" he asked.

"Kicking a pebble" I said. Honesty was my only play, I figured. His reaction to my answer was as bad as could possibly be; it was tremendously awkward.

He said absolutely nothing and walked away.

Email me if you're awkward and proud. And I do mean proud.

----

So much conscious uncoupling here on match. No real way to avoid it and it's nobody's fault. It's weird to act romantically toward a stranger. I think people meet a few times, have some fun, then it's strange because you don't know them, so you consciously uncouple.

At one point it drove me a little nuts -- the underwhelming nature of online dating. But recently I've come to think I asked too much of it. I mean did I really think the age-old problem of finding the right person had been solved -- for everybody -- with the invention of this website?

That is a silly thought, and I've abandoned it. I'm now far more Zen about the whole thing. This site may deliver me drinks and apps* and chit chat only, and since I like all those things, match, in my book, is a winner.

*Apps that feature meat, I must stipulate. For I cannot date a vegetarian. I am embarrassed by how obtuse that is. However, the pain of that embarrassment is easier to bear than is the notion of a veg-centered life. I love vegetables, but prefer them bathed in meat juice.
