Introducing: Stupid Cupid

Now this is just what a girl new to online dating wants to wake up to the day after yet another Valentines Day alone drinking a bottle of wine in her bathtub. Things are looking GREAT as far as my future spinsterhood is concerned.

And no... I am not crazy, sir... but I'm pretty sure you are. I don't want your Koolaid.

What have I gotten myself in to? Something tells me this is going to become a series.

Stupid Cupid:

A Series of OkCupid Fails


I did go on an INCREDIBLE first date last week though. A handsome investment banker messaged me directly asking to take me out to dinner and it was such a relief to get a message from someone who seemed NORMAL that I accepted. He took me to a gorgeous restaurant downtown where we sat for 2 hours talking and laughing. He even taught me how to use chop sticks. We were there so long that we actually overstayed our welcome at the table, so the manager offered to buy us a round of drinks at the bar. After the date there was a kiss good night. A pretty good kiss too, I might add. I woke up the next morning to a text saying he wanted to see me again to which I responded accordingly. Everything was going swimmingly, I thought, so when I didn't hear from him again all week I texted him today asking what his thoughts were on the House of Cards premiere. Shortly after that text he called me, but then hung up when I answered. He then proceeded to text me for about an hour, continuously referring to himself in the third person, before going totally radio silent.


Stay tuned, y'all. Something tells me the crazies are just getting warmed up.

With Grace and Good Humor,

My name is Mary Lane Haskell and my two "claims to fame" are that I have Dolly Parton's fax number and that Reese Witherspoon once liked a post on my Instagram.  I am an actor, a writer, and a profound Chipotle enthusiast making my way in Los Angeles while trying to stay true to my family's southern roots, all with grace and a touch a good humor.  I'm so glad you're here!
