The Dating Bucket List

The Dating Bucket List
One woman's list of the men she'd "like to get to know" before settling down.

Ever since the movie “The Bucket List” people have been talking about things they want to do before they die. Ok, I’m sure people talked about this before the movie, but there’s nothing like some mainstream cinematic influence to get people inspired. I’ve always had a running list of things I want to do before I die, but after my divorce, I came up with a different type of bucket list. The realization that I almost spend the rest of my life sleeping with the same man and having really boring scared me. There were so many things (and people!) I hadn’t experienced yet.

You can call it a sexual awakening, or finding someone who actually knew what they were doing, but after I left my ex, I made a list of all of types of people I wanted to get to know (in the biblical sense) before I died. I repurposed Socrates’ claim that, “An unexamined life is not worth living” to keep my focus…and to feel better about the fact that I was more focused on having amazing sex than climbing the Himalayas before I kicked the bucket. Ancient Greeks were rumored to have mass orgies, anyway, so I figured Socrates wouldn’t mind me liberally construing his words.

I’ve already crossed some of these off my list and gave myself bonus points for doubling or tripling the criteria on a couple of them. As much fun as it would be to cross each of these men off my list separately, I don’t want to put too many notches on that bedpost!

Tinder: Is It Time To Move On?

By

I used to host speed dating events. On any given night, forty to fifty people would show up hoping to meet someone amazing within the span of a four-minute date. It was kind of a strange idea at first— meeting twenty guys in one evening to see if anyone had potential. But it was efficient. I sifted through more and more guys each week who ... Read more
