Are there ANY eligible bachelor’s out there that can operate a motor vehicle? Are there any–besides me–that can and do operate cars? Oh my god lately it seems like I’m being inundated with guys that can’t drive and it’s really getting on my nerves.
Case In Point: I met this dude online about a month or so ago. He hit me up, we began trading messages, and really hit it off (plus he’s really handsome. Totally someone I would go for). He works a lot so we didn’t get to talk frequently; but whenever we do speak our conversation is always great. However, Jimmy (my name for him in this) dropped a bombshell on me today. Jimmy said that he rides the Metro bus. “Okay, cool…” I thought, initially. “Perhaps he just rides the bus because he’s contributing to the environment?” Wrong. Jimmy went onto add that he had some nerve damage in his left foot (from surgery), so he hasn’t driven a car since 06′.
That was the last thing I wanted to hear. I smacked my forehead. Yet again have I managed to choose the one man–out of several–that doesn’t drive a car.
Look, I’m not shallow but is a valid driver’s license really too much to ask for? In the last year I’ve been on dates with about five or six guys that, for WHATEVER REASON, could not drive a car. Either they didn’t learn to drive a car at a young age or they have some sort of disability (that I find out about later) that doesn’t allow them. I’m not faulting anyone for being disabled; however, why do they constantly wind up being my companions. They ALWAYS wind up riding shotgun in my vehicle and it stinks because the favor can NEVER be returned.
I would prefer it if both me and my man drove cars. I would love to be picked up in his big Cadillac (or little dodge Neon) from time to time. Moreover, it’s nice to be able to meet up someplace on a first date. Furthermore, I live in a HUGE city and seeing that I’m doing all the driving that is a lot of mileage on my car.
My ex-friend (the toxic one) started off riding Metro lift but, after we got to know each other, he wound up becoming a frequent passenger in MY car. I got rid of him and now a guy that I’m feelin can’t drive. Granted, Jimmy seems really swell. So far he’s my type; a college grad; working full-time, and has his own apartment. It’s not like he is using me for my wheels. I already know that I’m not going to play chauffeur ever again…
Why is it that in a room full of NASCAR drivers the one who can’t drive always gravitate to me?
Is it really too much to ask that a dude have a car?
