There are a few drawbacks to self-dating, however.
(a) No surprise gifts. I mean, what am I gonna do, buy myself a surprise rose or chocolates?
(b) I cannot kiss myself on the lips -- though I have tried!
(c) I look silly when I talk to myself out loud in restaraunts.
... and so forth.
One advantage of self-dating, however, is that I always laugh at my own jokes.
