Yet his only experience practicing law to date has consisted of getting fired from a ,400-a-week summer-associate job at a prestigious Silicon Valley firm for, among other things, showing up intoxicated at the orientation meeting and complaining that he couldn’t see anything because he had lost his contacts in a hookup with a girl he had met at a party the night before; informing a female recruiter at the firm that he was “calling a porn line” when she walked into his office unexpectedly; and getting fall-down drunk at a firm retreat and shouting the F-word at a charity auction attended by the partners and their spouses.
His email account of the last escapade made its way to laughs around the country.
At the Hampton Inn where Max was staying, he introduced Courtney to his dog: “Say hello to the new slut.” The next morning, after some sessions of “jackhammering a sidewalk,” as she described his sexual technique (although she did concede that he was a “great kisser”), he handed her for the taxi ride of shame back to her apartment. A.”, feminist Jaclyn Friedman, who inexplicably blamed Max’s perverse success with females (half his fans, perhaps the more enthusiastic half, are female) on abstinence-only sex education, sniffed that she found his “antics revolting,” blasted his “unapologetic misogyny,” and accused him of contributing to a campus atmosphere that allows 150,000 young women to be raped every academic year.
(Friedman derived that extraordinarily high figure by counting drunken sexual encounters between students as rape.) Amanda Marcotte, the feminist blogger briefly hired by John Edwards during his presidential campaign, chimed in, accusing Max of a “bone-deep hatred of sexual women”—and also of possible “sexual assault” because he had bragged on his website about sleeping with a drunk girl while a friend hidden in a closet filmed the encounter. Next to her story she posted a photograph of her with Max that she had a friend take at the bar.
On that same note, single dads may not get back to you as quickly as you like. If you always need a text back within 30 seconds, a single dad is not right for you.
If you need a text back within three hours, a single dad might not be right for you. If you need a text back the same day, a single dad might not be right for you.
Sometimes, it just doesn’t happen and it’s not because we don’t want to. As much as he’d like to, he may not be able to get completely lost in twitterpation over you.
It’s because between homework, and stories, and karate lessons, and parent teacher conferences, and mandatory work meetings that go late, and shopping, and cleaning… He may not be able to spend every waking moment with you.
But if you have your eye on one, there are a few things you should know about them. First, you should know that he’s going to talk about his kids. I know, I know, the conversation should be greatly focused about you, him, and both of your awesomeness on a first date, but you have to understand that single dads live and breathe their kids and their kids’ happiness, so give him a minute or twenty to get it out of his system.
They will see someone else as a threat to your time with them.
It’s very common for little girls to get jealous of a girlfriend or someone you’re dating.
They may have some ketchup or other undistinguishable stains on their sleeves that they didn’t notice. This is totally normal and something you will eventually find to be very sexy. Raise their kids, and maintain a home, and support their families. Trust me, they don’t want to be and they did their best not to be, but there is just not *quite* enough time in any day to get it all done.
Sometimes, it is everything they can do to get out the door to come see you in the first place. Next, you should know that they will probably not want to take you back to their place for quite some time. 1) they really don’t want their kids meeting any new person in their life until they are sure it is going to last a long while.
