The End of Chase.

Oh hey there sexy people.

I have been away for a bit. I'm not even sorry. It's that time of year where everything is crazy super busy yet nothing really happens.

I've been snowboarding pretty much every weekend except the weekend of my company Christmas party. That weekend was pretty much a write off.

If you remember I had invited Chase to my company Christmas party. I had assumed at that point we were still "dating". However if you follow me on twitter you'd know that she put me in the friend-zone about 4 days before the party. This wasn't all that surprising considering the complete lack of intimacy that was going on between us. She felt the need to put that out there before the party though. Nice. I'd only told people at work that my plus one, was a girl I was dating. I told her to fuck off... just kidding. I, of course, still brought her to the Christmas party. We had a good time. She got really, really drunk. However, she wasn't the worst one by far. The chick that passed out in her own puke in the bathroom was probably the worst. Wait, it might have been the girl that puked the whole 45 minute limo ride home. Either way, Chase just got to the point she needed to pass out. Everyone from work really liked her. There was one awkward moment when someone was trying to convince me to ask Chase to be my Girlfriend. I just had to laugh and shake my head. "It isn't going to happen."

The night ended relatively simply, limo dropped Chase off at her place and me at mine. There was a bit of a problem the next day with a missing purse and picking up car from other side of town but that was to be expected.

This next part probably isn't going to earn me any new fans, but at least I'm honest.

I will, in all likelihood, never see Chase ever again.


Well, I don't have time for more friends. To be honest I rarely see the friends I already have. I'm OK with this. I'm busy, they are busy, but because we are friends we know this. We understand this, and we stay friends and see each other when we can.

Chase and I don't have mutual friends, don't have the same hobbies, and no real reason to hang out with each other except to enjoy each others company. I like her, but she isn't what I'm looking for (ie. a relationship). I'm not going to burn any bridges, no matter how pretty the flames would be. I'm just not going to put any effort into it. Let the bridge rot and decay over time and eventually get swept up in the river of time.

I guess it is completely back to the drawing board on the dating aspect, a clean slate if you will. January is a new month, a new year and may involve a new tactic or two for finding love.

It hasn't all been bad news. I'm making progress on the fitness front. I haven't lost any more weight since the last post, but I haven't put the weight back on. Which is awesome considering the time of year it is. I've instead managed to put on a bit of muscle and slim down at the same time. January I'll be kicking it into overdrive to co-inside with the relaunch of dating.

I'm thinking of posting progress pictures on here if people are interested. I know I'm fascinated by the changes people make. Let me know, some how or another whether you think this would be neat or if I'm just vain and think people care. I'll let you decide how to tell me.

As for this blog, through thorough analysis I've come to learn that my most viewed post is The one about Online Dating Profiles. Which I didn't really write as a How To. It was more a frustrated rant about one aspect on online dating but it seems to be getting loads and loads of traffic. The last two months have been my highest traffic months ever, and I haven't even posted anything. I may need to start brainstorming more rant style dating posts. Stay tuned.

I'll eventually figure out what I'm doing with this blog and with it my life but in the mean time. Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Joyous Kwanza, and a good Festivus for the Restofus.

Later Days,

Shape Up: I've Lost Ten Pounds.

There once was a man who decided that he needed to change things. Those that have been reading my blog for a while know that I have dominantly been focused on just a few things; dating, sex, booze, and adventure. 

Since my last post the dating thing has pretty much stagnated. Partly on purpose, slash, lack of time. I've been seeing Chase still. We haven't even kissed yet so I have no idea what the fuck is going on and for once I'm not analyzing it. If we end up just being friends, cool. If more, awesome. If it fizzles and dies, I'm going to be OK as well. She has been more attentive and wanting to hang out more and more which I think is a good sign. She is coming as my date to the company Christmas party so there is that.

Back to the point about me not having time. It is true. I've become a gym rat. I work out a fair amount. I started a weight lifting program and it had been working wonders. Then I paired it with calorie counting and diet management. I'm proud to say that I've lost ten pounds. I feel fantastic. If you're like me or me before, I always had a hard time sticking to a program or diet because it was so hard to keep track of everything. Then I realized that this smart phone I had in my pocket could be used for a greater good. I found a couple of apps that have changed the way I function. 

Firstly there is my weight training app. www.jefit.com It has revolutionized how I go to the gym. If anyone is trying to get into shape by lifting weights check out this app. As far as diet goes I use Myfitnesspal.com and I've learned a lot about what I've been eating and where my calories have been coming from and going. The combination of these two apps have changed my life and because I've lost ten pounds the fairer sex has started to notice too. I must stay focused though and not get complacent. I want to become a sexual object to women. For once in my life I want them to objectify me.

I've also been spending my weekends on the ski hill. I have been enjoying it immensely. My first trip up to the hill was eventful to say the least.

I got drunk.

Then I got more drunk. Went to a party, had a riot. Left party, went to a pub where I sat next to this cute girl. She was there all by herself so we got to chatting. we ended up making out by the creek for a while and enjoying the picturesque surroundings in the Canadian Rockies. It really was quite romantic. She then took me back to where she was staying and we had mad passionate monkey sex in the shower and just about everywhere else. I woke up in the morning, went back to where I was staying and passed the fuck back out. Needless to say I didn't get any riding in on the second day. It took me almost 7 hours to recover to the point I could drive back to the city. Good times.

I've been out a couple more times since and so far my seasons pass has been a wise investment.

I'm sure I'll have some more adventures to write about and I'll keep you posted on the Shape Up too.
