So I got a girlfriend the other day. That was a good day.
I want to save you all the sappy “new love” stuff, so let’s just skip straight to the relationship gripes.
The worst thing about having a girlfriend is that my entire repertoire of sad, creepy, single man humour is lost to me. I’d been developing that for years. Now all I have is inadequate, newbie boyfriend humour, and that won’t last long. Then I have inadequate medium/long-term boyfriend humour, and that’s pretty much every non-single man’s joke bread-and-butter.
They say relationships are about sacrifice, but I totally forgot to count the cost to my comedy routines.
If you’re wondering, the best thing about having a girlfriend is she’s awesome. I would have liked to have been able to add that the best thing is also that we get to sync calendars, but she uses a paper diary and you can’t sync them with anyone. Still it’s probably for the best. It’s way too early to be syncing calendars. That’s a level of intimacy our relationship is not yet ready for. I think syncing calendars is probably up there with pet names, hosting dinner parties, and public fights in the shops, and we’re not ready for any of them.
We had been married for a few years before we attempted synced iCals. In the end we didn’t sync. We mostly just send iCal invitations to each other.
Maybe we aren’t as far along in our relationship as I thought we were.
so pretty much you won’t be funny anymore…
Gosh I wonder if Martin and I have reached any level of intimacy, we don’t sync calenders and we don’t even have public fights.
P.S. I don’t really want to be saved all the sappy new love stuff so feel free anytime.
Yes make a sappy new love post for me and Mil.
Awww. Sweet. Have to say I’m with Mil and Jo. Sappy new love post please.
Andreana and I sync calendars. It’s the best!!
Anyway, glad to hear of your new status and glad I got the chance to meet the very fortunate woman.
Hi Tom, I know that I am only showing my age, but what does “sappy” means?
I spent the last few days in reworking my memoirs and having a few copies printed in Budapest. Do you think they are worth $9 each and how many shall I order for you for resale among your friends?
I will sync calendars with you Tom.
