The landed world traveler
She literally landed from you-name-it within months or even weeks. Australia, anywhere in Europe, Asia, middle east, helping starving kids in Africa, whatever else and even next door US. She has many stories, nothing crazy, but has chosen Toronto to settle and start a family. Except it’s not that simple honey. I am usually one of their first realizations to this – never the last. I avoid them now as they are usually worse than re-bounders with their false timelines and expectations. This person lives in a bubble.
Oh the lawyers. From recent grads to juniors and law firm partners, I’ve met them all on dates. It’s funny too, as the partner is far more relaxed and open than the junior is. Almost all agree that they bit off more than they could chew and seriously hate the job.
The born and bred city girl
Not many dates with this one, they tend to repent me. I grew up bouncing between south western Ontario and Muskoka, a “country boy” if you will and the city chicks don’t jive with it, nor do I with them. Include Oakville.
The non city girl
This is the one I have the best success with – All surrounding towns and cities are open season, as close as Milton to the west, Pickering to the east and Bradford to the north. They are so much more real, legit and free. Canadian country boys also have a deep unknown bond and connection with southern girls from the US that needs further exploration.
The work bitch
When I moved to the city back in 2008 I couldn’t fathom the amount of workplace back stabbing, bullshit and distrust among people in the corporate workforce. And after a few years you could pin it on one or a few bitches. I’d call them out on their bs routinely – these are deeply disturbed idiots acting out and disrupting entire companies. Anyone that has worked in an office knows who I am talking about.
That aside – they are also single and dating (imagine my surprise). The feeling is weird when the work bitch from another company is now in hot pursuit of you. Remember opposites attract, or better sense, polarity attracts. They usually have severe daddy issues, bang on the first date and stalk when you don’t call back, you’ve been warned.
