This is the tumblr I wish I was writing.



The incomparable Alison Eakle turned me onto this incomparable tumblr - AS YOU LIKE IT - via her Facebook, of course.

I don't know who's writing this, I don't know how long they've been at it, heck, I don't even know if they're male or female (feels male, but some people say that about my blog too). All I know is that I love it.

AS YOU LIKE IT bills itself as "Notes on the Complexities of Liking Someone," and it delivers on the promise. Each mini post features quippy observations and statements about the state of dating affairs. Things like:
  • "Internet dating is like shopping at a thrift store. There are a few gems here and there, but mostly its just pit stained T-shirts and old underwear."

...and...

  • "The amount of time that a dude will cuddle with a chick after sex is equal to the amount of time a chick will talk to a dude after he buys her a drink."

It's genius like this that makes me wonder why I labor over 500+ word posts when the bottom line is usually communicated in one sentence or less. It's 21st century writing at its best!

So, kudos to you, Internet person. Please keep up the excellent work.

And while we're at it, why don't you all recommend your favorite new tumblr's in comments for a little #FF Thursday action (so, #FT).
