Marie Claire Dating Blogger Leaves Us Speechless

Recently, Marie Claire dating blogger and occasional Jezebel target Rich Santos e-mailed me with an intriguing (though naive) offer: Taking one of us out on a date to prove he is not "an ignorant beast."

My counter-offer was this: if it's to be an honest assessment of his douchiness, then let's bring a camera, get some drinks and just be our (possibly horrible) selves. To my surprise, Rich agreed. And a sampling of the evening is below.

My analysis? He is, indeed, not an beast, though he is a little ignorant about some stuff. He's a relatively sweet, insecure, immature and slightly shallow dude. He was, to his credit, able to see the comic potential of a filmed date, and, absurdist conversation aside, a complete gentleman. By the end, I sort of wanted to rub his head, give him my shrink's number and hope for the best. I might not want to date Rich, but I don't hate him either. In fact, if he wanted, I'd go get a few more drinks, leave the camera at home and wait to see what he says next.

I'd like him more if he called his blog something more creative. "Sex and the Single Guy," really?

Much preferred:

"Boning with the Homies"

"Journey to the Center of My Cock"

"Vagina Quest 2009"

"Dinner and an Orgasm"

"Sticking it Where The Sun Don't Shine"

"Me Like-ah The Lay-days"
