So I went to church this Sunday and the pastor, Dan Deeble, was talking about dating and the different type of daters that we experience. I thought these were rather hilarious so I am posting them for your viewing pleasure.
Bomb Squad Dater: This is the person who is desperate for you to be the one, and they will do anything to make it work. These people need you to fulfill something in them and you cannot be honest or share with them any level of truth for fear that you will trip a wire and he/she will explode.
Side-Huggers at the Latte Bar: This person is ambiguous and completely vague. While seeing this person you are always wonder, “are we dating, are we not”, “are we going out tomorrow, are we not”, “do we have plans this weekend or don’t we.” You never know with this person, he/she is fickle and keeps you dangling from a string.
The Klepto: This person is the taker. He/she takes everything from the relationship and doesn’t give anything in return.
The Druggie: This is the emotion rules dater. Everything they do revolves around highs and low.
The Black Hole: This person is a great dater but has commitment issues. He/she is high on charm, has great dating skills, and is excellent at fostering intimacy- but will never commit. You will waste years of your life banking on a relationship with someone who will never come to the table
The Digital Dualist: The person is great online but super awkward in person.
The Conquistador: This person is very controlling and seeks power in the relationship. He/she will often be demeaning in order to elevate themselves in a relationship.
Ice man/Ice Queen: This person has built up high walls because of past experiences and it can be nearly impossible to break them.
Blue Light Special: Someone who has so devalued themselves so much that he/she cannot allow themselves to feel worthy of love -or- he/she will do anything to receive love.
Seinfeld Syndrom: The critical dater who always finds fault in the other person but is never willing to work on themselves.
So who are you? And which type of dater are you dating?
I think Isaac relates best to the Black Hole and the Side Hugger at the Latte Bar.
…which is incredibly encouraging.
