Those of you who have been following me for a while, know that I abhor Boo Season. Last week, I reposted a blog I did about it in 2010. I think a lonely, narcissistic individual with no conscience and a disdain for long-term commitment came up with Boo Season. I'm also pretty sure it was man. Probably the same dude that invented, “kickin it”. So, I actually find it hilarious that I would meet someone and enter into a relationship during Boo Season. You know I had to make sure that he wasn’t trying to run game, right? You can see our text conversation below:
Me: You’re not just trying to date me for Boo Season, are you?
Him: I’m not sure what you mean, please explain.
Me: Boo Season is when you date someone during the fall and winter months because it’s too cold to be out trolling for women. You have someone to cuddle with and spend time with during the holidays. Once it gets warm again, you make up some idiotic excuse to break up so you can date other people during the hot months when everyone is running around half-naked. Sometimes, people break up before Valentine's so it doesn't seem serious or they don't have to buy a gift.
Him: How about this? I want you for 30 consecutive Boo Seasons.
Me: So, you want to be with me up until I’m 67. So you can use up all my good years and then dump me for a younger woman. No sir!
Him: That didn't go quite like I planned. You have a point.
Me: LOL! It’s okay. I know what you meant.That's so sweet!
As you can see, I’m still giving men a hard time. LOL Seriously, I knew he was a good guy but I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t investigate just to make sure. I thought I would share our interaction to give you guys a good laugh. Avoid Boo Season people! Happy Holidays!
