My god, somebody get Meghan McCain some medicine and/or a reality check. And I quote…
The election killed my personal life.
OK, maybe killed is a bit of an exaggeration. But it does seem to be on life support. Of all the things people warned would happen post-election, no one ever said anything about how complicated dating would become. Especially if your dad loses the election. There are things that have been difficult, but nothing quite as tough as dating. I fear the election has destroyed my ability and desire to date.
But when it comes to dating, it’s become an entirely different subject. And I promise, no one is more surprised by this revelation than I am. If I am adult enough to understand that voting is one of the most personal things a person can do, why am I letting it affect how attracted to someone I am? I know that no one can really explain sexual attraction and why you are drawn to someone or not—but at this point in time, nothing kills my libido quite like discussing politics.
Nothing makes me more ill than the idea of some guy bragging to his friends that he was going to go on a date with “John McCain’s daughter.” (Unfortunately this has happened more times than I would like to count and each time I can sense it within the first 30 seconds of meeting them.) One extreme fan of my mother’s recently told me I could be “his Cindy.” And then asked me if I ever wore pearls because they probably would look as good on me as they do on my mother. No, I’m not kidding. Any guy that has a fetish for older women in pantsuits and large pearls obviously only finds my last name attractive about me.
I was skimming through and thought this was about you. It dawned on me…ya I could see that, you would indeed look good in pearls!
but on the reals.. she is either lobbying for a the role on the Bachelorette – where she marries a Bobby Jindal supporter but then dumps him for a atheist.. Or she is going to land herself a Chris Brown and get the smack down that deep down really is all she ever wanted!
Meghan does sort of sound like a single and overdramatic version of me. I’m glad Obama won or else maybe my life would be in “shambles” like Meghan’s.
Don’t feel so bad Meghan. Last I heard, Obama’s daughters aren’t getting any dates either.
