i went on the worst. date. ever. tonight. this dude was honestly, without a doubt, the dumbest human being i have had extended contact with. it was like an hour and a half of supermarket checkout pleasantry. PAINFUL.

i consoled myself with some food:

a square of chocolate after dinner (pre-date)

a cappuccino (during date)

popcorn (post-date)

well actually, i'm about to make the popcorn now. i was so tired earlier that i figured i'd have a cappuccino, and now i think i'm slightly delirious and wired at the same time. at least i don't feel the slightest bit guilty for wanting a snack right now. hmmm.


  1. oh no! Bad dates are brutal. At least you aren't unsure about how you feel about him? ick.

  2. I'm so sorry that your date sucked. I am sooooo lucky that I'm in a relationship and don't have to deal with that nonsense.

    And I am proud of your for the HUGE step of feeling ok about eating to console yourself. Sometimes, it's ok to just let your emotions take control and to be proud that you are listening to what you need.

    I am currently struggling with an ED and your blog is one of the first ones I read every morning (along with For the Love of Peanut Butter). So thanks for being an inspiration and SOME hope for me that things might be better in the future. Cause right now it feels pretty hopeless.

    Best of luck!

  3. hi liz,

    i'm so happy that i can affect someone in a positive way through this blog. sometimes i worry, like when i slip or am having a difficult time, that i might be triggering... but i figure it's best to be truthful. i clicked on your name but it said profile not available... if you have a blog for "friends only" and want to share, i'd love to hear about your story!
