So this kind of sucks. I fully had started writing a wonderful article, and Ubuntu crashed on me. So I’m saving this multiple times throught this endeavour to prevent further loss, new Boxing Day laptop, I think i will!! <save>
With that said, I’d like to take the opportunity to do two things. Firstly, I’d like to wish to all of you readers, critics, inspiration providers and fellow Toronto Singles a Happy Holiday season. Second, I wish you a wonderful 2013, filled with luck, love and lust (for those of you who are into that sort of thing). Now raise a glass (because I know many of you are drinking right now, and if you aren’t – pour one before reading further) and toast yourselves. You got through another year and the one coming shows promise I’m sure! <save>
Enough with the mushy stuff, I actually have a purpose for writing today. My pseudo-science is needed. If you recall, earlier this year, we embarked on a pseudo-scientific journey and TorontoSingledomology was discovered. I’ve spent the better part of the last few months thinking about this, discovering laws and theories, travelling far and wide to ensure that TorontoSingledomology is unique. You haven’t seen new material not only because life got in the way, but the formation of the science in my head was a difficult task. There are several unfinished pieces that came out of this time, those will be expanded and published in true Toronto Singles Examiner fashion, at a later date. <save>
You’ll recall that the First Law of TorontoSingledomology stated that increased temperature in Toronto increases the “heat” in our streets. We even did a little science experiment surrounding the attractiveness of sweats. Wasn’t that fun? Of course it was!
In the same vein, I now propose the Second Law of TorontoSingledomology, targeted to our colder climate during this holiday season. <save>
The Second Law of TorontoSingledomology does NOT imply that there are less beautiful people in our city during the winter months, we all know that to be untrue, and impossible to prove scientifically. The cuties are still around, they are just less apparent, because it’s cold. The cold keeps people bundled up, and indoors. Like where I am right now. It’s about attitude, so with no further ado…
The Second Law of TorontoSingledomology states:
The cold Toronto winter (and by extension the Holiday Season) results in reduced tolerance to bullsh!t. <save>
With the First Law, I gave some tips on how to take advantage of the Toronto streets. I dont think I can do that this time. For my conscience, I can’t tell any of you how to be less bullsh!t. I can only tell you to not be bullsh!t. So listen, don’t be bullsh!t.
For those of you who disagree with the Second Law, please think to your own past dating experiences, or the dating experiences of those around you. How often have you dumped or been dumped between Rememberance Day and New Years Eve? How often have you met someone later on in the year and it just fizzled? How often has someone you found so interesting in the spring and summer just become a laborious chore in the winter time? Ask yourself these questions. Now ask yourself why. <save>
My proposal is this. It’s cold outside. Although Toronto winters have been milder than most for the last few years, It’s a lot to ask for to leave the comfort of one’s warm bed for something you aren’t 100% into.
Combine this with the bullsh!t factor that exists with so many people in our city (don’t front, we’ve all bullsh!tted here and there, in school, at work, in DATING), you have the Second Law. <save>
Eventually, the cold weather gets to us, and we have to nix all the bullsh!t. We just can’t deal anymore. Whether it’s being fed up with putting in more into a relationship than we’re getting, fed up with the long-distance, or just generally wanting to be true to ourselves and recognize we deserve better than the relationship we’re in, the bullsh!t will be called out when it gets cold outside and we all have to spend more ‘inside time’ either alone, or with that person we’re seeing.
My recommendation is simple Toronto singles. Cut the bullsh!t. You’ll have more successful winter dating experiences. Til next time!! <save><save><save>
