The other day, I paused while deep conditioning my hair in the shower and began to think long and hard about what I did to screw up my last date with this guy I was starting to like. Like really like.
It appears there is no quicker or easier way to get yourself showered with media attention than to say something mean and disempowering to women -- bonus points if the women are single.
Each brush with an online dating site, whether for real or for research, felt like a brush with a comb vigorously teasing my hair the wrong way. Nails on a chalkboard. Every last thing about it either repelled me or felt impossible.
Like a bro who's circled back to pick up his anchor baby, we're back for episode 3 of Mixology, charting the odds of our 10 singles in their quest of love and/or lust in NYC.
There are lots of reasons us singles are "still" single -- ranging from "because I want to be" to "I'm a raving sociopath." But after a tremendous amount of thought, I have come to the conclusion that for most of us somewhere in the middle, the explanations are pure BS.

While it's far too early to know who ends up with whom and who inevitably goes home alone, it's always fun to speculate, isn't it? So that's exactly what we'll do. With 1 being "A snowball's chance in hell" and 10 being "They're probably in a bathroom stall right now," we'll take a weekly look at our singles' odds of getting lucky.
When we really understand our true value, we don't want to settle for less than someone who is truly into us. Instead, it's to accept ourselves as we are right now. It makes it far easier to handle that sometimes we're not a match, and in no way is it a statement about us as lovable human beings.
