“Who shows up at a blind date and can’t get it up?”
The line is epic, the tone is rude and the speaker is an old whore. (Disclaimer – The views expressed in this blog are based in fact and completely true, hand to God pinky swear on that one.)
Using the term “Old whore” is not because of her obvious promiscuity.
Its for being crass enough to say this in a Starbucks while sitting at a table with young children 2 tables away.
Here’s what we know so far:
- Betty is old enough to be my mother’s aunt.
- Betty is single and on the prowl.
- Betty is not aging well.
Online dating has done to dating what politics has done to civil discourse. (In other words, gang raped it and shit all over it.
Despite putting you in touch with thousands more people that you might have never met, it is now harder than ever to meet Mr/Mrs Right. (That includes Mr/Mrs Right Now. Patron saint of one night stands and non-lethal STDs.)
And the quality of people has gone thru the floor.
It used to be that if you wanted to meet someone of a certain class or economic strata, you simply went to a bar in a better section of town.
Catfishing seems to be the order of the day. (I would normally tell you to Google it, but its central to the story here.)
Catfishing is basically pretending to be who you aren’t.
The simplest form of Catfishing is posting photos that are not yours. (I once got catfished by a 76 year old woman who posted photos of her daughter. Even good coffee could not save that awkward little meet-n-greet)
People pretend to be wealthier, better looking, better place in life, better you name it.
But it may be a new and weird type of catfish that you present yourself as a player when your sexual function is gone.
The concept of the player who cannot play is new.
Or maybe very old.
Either way it does tone down the spotlight pointed at Betty the hoe.
Someone suggested that I am slut-shaming Betty the hoe.
It’s not shaming because Betty has no idea I did it.
It’s not like anyone she knows is going to read this.
So it’s like a private joke between me and the three people who actually read this shit.
Also, let’s have a slut talk, shall we?
Slut is a word that mean girls and assholes in highschool say to hurt girls that may or may not have slept around.
I know many a girl called slut in highschool who hadn’t done a damned thing.
And the girls calling names were usually the biggest sluts I knew at the time. (I was lucky enough to meet some truly epic sluts after high school.)
But a woman out of school who sleeps around?
She is empowered and knows what she wants.
More power to her. (I was also lucky enough to meet of few of these lovely ladies as well.)
Hoe-shaming would be more accurate.
Except for one thing.
Hoes don’t give a shit.
Not in a confident way, but in more of a ignorant of the fact that it’s an insult to begin with.
I sight as an example:
Betty sipped her coffee and let out a big sigh.
“Maybe I’m just some old hoe.”
Don’t sell yourself short, Betty.
You are a hall of fame Old Hoe.
