Glossary of a BLOW OFF: The Roto

The Roto
Function: noun
Short for: the rotation
Origin: since my little brother used it in a sentence

1. Dating multiple people at the same time until you decide who you're most interested in.  
("I think I'm going to blow her off, because I've got three other girls in the roto that are hotter.")

I've had a few "when it rains, it pours" moments in my dating history, but I'm sad to say, I've never had my very own Roto. So, readers-- have you ever dated more than one person at the same time to figure out who was really worth your time?


  1. Yeah, it works out pretty good. (Except people never like it when they find out you've slept with someone else that week. Tho they might pretend they don't care.)
    But I've seen a lot of people end up in relationships out of a sort "Well I've got nothing else going on" feeling, where all of a sudden it's 6/9/12 months later and you're in a subpar relationship. If you have options, then the creme will rise to the top.
    Plus, there's all the sex.

  2. Um, does two dates on Valentine's Day count? Hot.

  3. Unfortunately no. I'm so not a player!
