    so what exactly IS the proper waiting period? i feel like you have all the answers.

  2. Peter says:

    Oh, Michelle. You have come to the right place.

    There are many factors involved. Including, but not limited to…

    How long were you together?
    How serious was it?
    Were they an asshole before, during, or after the break-up?
    Have they already moved on?

    How cute is the new person?

    Wow. You being a “typical guy” couldn’t be further from the truth. Man I freaking hate girls like that. Suck it up, you weren’t right for him…geez.

    At least you’re not on Don’t Date Him, Girl.

    This post has enlightened me. I now know how you’re going to finally get married. You’re not going to find The One Woman that finally quiets all the discord from the varios Peters living in your head. You won’t get it together and figure out what you need and who you need it from. No, not at all.

    A woman is going to come along, like you a LOT, and NEVER TAKE NO FOR AN ANSWER. Yes, she will outlast all the Peters, not only put up with but adore your idiosyncracies, and have you down on one knee within the first 12 months of knowing her. Oh, and she and the Monkey and ACN will form an indestructable Mock The Unc sorority that will bruise your ego but make you love her all the more.

    Just you see.

    As for the waiting period, I think it’s over once you no longer (or very rarely) think about your ex. If you’ve forgotten about them for an entire week, you’re good to go.

    When watching Pushing Daisies I find myself mentally screaming, “Don’t stand so close to each other. You’re making me nervous!”

    Good to hear I’m not the only one who takes TV shows a little too seriously. :)

  7. each of the two says:

    you watch “pushing daisies” and talk on the phone for 8 hour streches (depending on the necesity of the moment)

    you are anything but “typical”

    (i mean unless you are gay, but all this talk of chicks and blondes and smooching makes me thinks no)

  8. molly says:

    Far from typical, my dear.

  9. Katie says:

    I have a problem with the word “typical.” Is there such a thing? Really? That’s where stereotypes come in, by giving something the “typical” tag. Typical guy, typical cheerleader, typical pimp, typical wannabe… you get my drift.

    Very few of us are typical. IMO.

  10. Peter says:

    miriam: Thank you. I also hate girls like that.

    123valerie: Had it been around at the time…

    mr.ska: Dude… I suspect that you may be onto something here.

    hope: Right? They stand right next to each other!

    each of the two: Pushing Daisies rules. Though I could do with less “32 years, 4 months, 14 days…” business. AS for the 8 hour phone thing, I realllly had a crush on her.

    molly: Awwww. Thanks!

    katie: You raise a very good point. But, if I was a typical pimp, could I rock a purple fedora?

  11. CamiKaos says:

    no no, that was all mean jealous revenge talk, you don’t seem typical at.all.

  12. mindy says:

    “Disclaimered”? Can you just turn anything into a verb or what?

    I hear only typical guys do shit like that.


  13. distracted spunk says:

    Where’s the twist? I was waiting for the twist, Peter!

    Also. I worry for Chuck and Ned too. All that plastic wrap – what if it tears while they’re kissing! It better be some heavy duty Saran wrap is all I got. Do you think they could have sex if they saran wrap themselves?

  14. Peter says:

    camikaos: Why, thank you.

    mindy: “Peter D WINS! 333-330”

    distracted spunk: Sometimes I like to zig when people expect a zag. And now I’ll be wondering about them having sex whenever I watch “Pushing Daisies.”

    Also, how awesome is the chick that plays Chuck? Holy crap.

  15. Eve says:

    Dude, she was hurt and angry! At 17, who’s evolved enough to not talk shit?

  16. Ashley says:

    What IS a typical guy anyway? I’d like to know. So I can like avoid them.

    I have a feeling you are not a typical guy though. I mean i do keep coming back to your blog to read. oh and you read and comment on all my gushy posts about my date. haha. I give you a lot of credit for that!

  17. blogging says:

    Petey, (mind if I call you Petey?)

    You are definitely not the typical guy. You are of the guy species, definitely. But, if you’re ever wondering if you’re ‘typical’ or not, just remember that you blog. And it’s not always about sex, or cars, or sports. This makes you VERY atypical for your species. You’re like a dog, but you’re the one that can talk, or something.

    That makes sense, right?

    Also, has anyone ever told you that you look like Stephen Colbert? You do.

  19. Paige Jennifer says:

    It’s funny how some things you can’t recall and others you can’t forget.

    I like the way you turn your head inside out and put it on display. Okay, maybe that made no sense. Or maybe it did.

  20. skinny says:

    hey pete, be the bigger guy, let it go (of course i know you have already). of course you don’t need to go talk to her and be friends, but why let something like this bother you?

    btw, to me, being a “typical” guy is not a condescending comment, it’s actually quite manly. make me think of the cave man, macho, crafty sort of guy, which is kinda attractive. but maybe because i’m just weird.

  21. Cait says:

    ” She was nice. She was cute. And while I wasn’t crazy about her, she seemed to like me a lot. Which is something I admire in women.”

    You sound just like my Peter. Well not mine anymore, seeing as how he pulled the same shindig on me that you pulled on that girl.

    Typical guys.
