I celebrated the New Year with good friends at a small family owned bar. They treated patrons to a champagne toast every hour until our time zone reached midnight. My wingwoman, Half-pint, was picked up by a twenty-year-old kid, and I was followed around by his older cousin, Puppy-Dog, for a majority of the night. At the end of the night, when my friends and I decided to leave, Puppy-Dog had the gall to grab his coat and exit with us. Hey Buddy, following me around all night like a puppy-dog and not once even attempting to buy me a drink, isn’t exactly paving the way for a New Year’s shag. Just sayin’. Needless to say there was no shag-time, and even though he asked for my number, the comment of, “If nothing ever happens, I just want you to know I had a good time tonight,” clearly pointed out that he was never going to use my number. I was spot on with that call and haven’t heard from him…and I’m not losing sleep over it either.
The first week of the New Year down, and the dating “project” for this year decided, it is time to share. Now, this decision may bring tears to some of your eyes, as it did with Buddha Babe, but it must be done. In my years of date-blogging, I have tackled online dating, a self-help book, speed dating, set-ups, etc. It is time to try the only thing I haven’t tried…FATE. This year I’m leaving the luck of my love life to Fate. That being said, my date count will drop drastically not leaving me much to blog about. So, unless Fate sets in motion something earth-shattering, this may most likely be my only post this year. Don’t fret too much, I’ll still be tweeting it up from time to time.
I thought giving myself and blog a proper send-off was in order, so I compiled a “The Best of Zia” list to keep you entertained in my dating absence.

Even in my non-dating life I find rare jewles…and, well, maybe posting on Craigslist had something to do with it too: Oh, Sammy Boy
