back in the game (kind of)

After a couple of years in a great relationship i now find myself single again. I haven't dated in a while, and well, i don't think d-a-t-i-n-g (had it insert the hyphens because google was trying to link to an online d-a-t-i-n-g site from my blog, can't have that) is quite the same for a forty-year old as it is for the younger generation, and being in Utah, the state of the early-twenty-something marriage, only compounds that problem. I don't think being bald or only having one leg helps much either, i mean, would you respond to a personal that read: "One-legged, 40 yo, bald male ISO love and romance. Enjoys riding the Jazzy around the supermarket and sorting socks"?

So as i approach this challenge i come to you, dear reader, for advice. Not long after my amputation cousin Todd sent me this T-shirt:

I personally love it, but am wondering whether it is appropriate attire for a first date. Please give me your opinion, as i'm sure i'll be meeting someone any day now that i'd like to ask out. You can use the poll here in the right of the blog, or feel free to leave comments as well.

Thanks in advance, i value the opinions of each and every one of you (except my brother who wanted to make me a glass of shitaid, thanks, but no thanks in advance for your opinion).

I'm sorry to hear that Matt. I think you're so awesome, and kind of brave for putting it all out there. I like the shirt! :)

And the official results:

70% said "YES!! Shows a great sense of humor in the face of tragedy."

25% said "Yes! Maybe you'll get lucky!"

Nobody said, "No! Too forward, remember you live in Utah!"

and 5% said, "NO!! Too Desperate!! You'll never get any action!"

That's it, the Yeas have it!
