The 10 Facts

I just reread my last 10 facts and thought it was funny so I am gonna try and do it again. I hope I make you proud DCFresh.

1. My first date ever was dinner and a movie. The movie was at the dollar theater and dinner was at a cheap burger place near the dollar theater. Maybe everything has gone wrong because I started out on the wrong foot.

2. Don't tell a girl on a date that you swallowed a live goldfish once. It won't help your cause.

3. There is a point on every bad date when you know that there is nothing else that you can do to make it a good date. If this point happens early in the date, you may save some money.

4. On one date, the bad point happened during dinner when I asked my date if she ever wore a bikini. It was over before I even finished the question.

5. I forgot the name of a girl while on a date once. The look she gave me was priceless. I use that moment to measure how bad every bad date is going.

6. If I added up all the money I spent on dating, I could probably buy a new car. Crap, that is a depressing thought.

7. If you are anorexic and we are on a date, it would probably impress me more if you didn't order any food. I have to pay for it whether you eat it or not.

8. When I am on a date with a girl and she secretly holds hands with one of my friends during the date, I am not going to hug her at the end of the date. Don't ask for it. Don't expect it.

9. Dating is kinda like life. You remember all the really good moments and really bad moments but everything in between is sort of fuzzy. I have about 10 dates I want to remember, 10 dates I wish I didn't remember and hundreds of dates I don't remember.

10. My friends and I used to have a code for dating: If you can't make it good, make it memorable. It was about this time that I asked a date about her grooming habits and was informed that I needed to learn when to shuttup. It was memorable.


  1. #2: I really want to know the story of the goldfish. How did that not help your cause? Interesting stories always gain my attention.

    #8: Who does that?!

    #10: hahaha what a great philosophy!

  2. Dear DCFresh:

    It has nothing to do with dating so it might be a bit off topic from this blog. When I was 16, we were all at my buddy's house one Friday night and it was almost like fate that we all looked over at the goldfish tank of his little sister's at the exact same moment. If you knew me, you would know that I am the person to dare to do something. Someone said "I dare you to swallow a live goldfish." It took a little mental toughness but I did it.

    I have brought it up a couple of times on dates and the reaction hasn't been as positive as I hoped. Some girls said "you should really keep lame things like that to yourself." Others said "Only a guy would think it is cool to do that sort of thing." One girl felt really bad for the poor goldfish. Nobody was like "high five, we should make out."

    As to the friend who held hands with the girl while I was on a date, perhaps I will write a blog post about that soon. It was a long time ago.

    Thanks so much for commenting. I hope you enjoyed my 10 facts.

    Love Tripp

  3. I mean, if you made a habit of swallowing live animals I would be concerned and weirded out but hearing that story makes me want to ask more questions (which I'll spare you) but isn't that the whole goal on a date? To learn more about the other person? I would want to learn more based on that short snippet.

    Date less up-tight women.

    PS Of course I comment, I love your blog & facts, just in general.

  4. could you feel it WIGGLE in your belly? did you see it when it "came out"?

  5. first of all, I hope you didn't look when it came out. I'm sure that fish was digested to smithereens. I totally agree with DCFresh - you need to date less up-tight women. They are nothing but trouble, especially for a guy like you. Nothing but love bro
