Do You Have A Backup Baby Daddy?

My friend Erin and I were stuck driving behind a slow-moving bus yesterday, and to kill time, we started talking about the particular mythical unicorns in our lives — our fallback baby-making guys. Men who, if neither of us was in a committed relationship, we might want to have children with. For Erin, it’s her friend Rich, with whom she’s been friends for almost 10 years. “Occasionally I think that maybe we’d make a good couple, but I know he’s too flaky. He’s too unreliable.” But still! “He has so many qualities that are wonderful, that I would love for my kids to be. And yeah, it’s crossed my mind that he’s kind of my go-to if nothing else works out.” I have one of those too — a guy friend that I have no real romantic interest in, but who possesses all of the qualities I’d love to have in a baby daddy. First off, Scott is smart beyond words, accomplished, and very, very thoughtful. (How thoughtful? He took me with him to Tiffany’s to pick out jewelry for his ex-girlfriend.) And he’s cute; there’s just never been any spark between us. Still, he’s really a very ideal man, and one whose genetic material should be propagated. Of course, he doesn’t know I think this about him. And maybe he never will. But it’s nice to know that there is someone out there that I do find ideal. Do you have a baby daddy backup?

A Flesh Hoodie For The Dudes

Is this real? It’s what appears to be a hoodie for guys that almost perfectly resembles real flesh. I’m not sure how I feel about this one. Those nipples? That farmer’s tan? Still, I do appreciate what appears to be a hint of a six-pack. I’m going to go out on a limb and assume they don’t make a female version. You’d have to beat the boys off with a stick.

Dater X: Does Every Single Woman Need A Hot, Foreign Pen Pal?

There are few things I love more than a good pun. And a sly piece of word play? I like to think that I deploy them often. I am all about analogies, and probably use them more often than a “Real Housewife” gets Botox. I, Dater X, am a word nerd. I’ve known this about myself for years, and generally it’s something I like potential suitors to match.

But in the the past week while exchanging emails with Petr, the Czech sculptor I met in Prague 10 years ago, I’m finding that many of my usual rhetorical rhythms simply don’t work. Keep reading »
