Word of the day: a couple of days ago pantywaist (no joke), meaning - a weak or effeminate man (still not a joke).  Ahhh, San Francisco.

I sat down and started really thinking about what I would want in a guy, must haves versus nice to haves.  This is tough and I think those of you out there that are still looking should do the same.  It's kinda like job are you going to find a new job if you don't know what you are looking for?

Time To Go Online

Okay, I have had tons of friends who have met people online.  Some of you reading have even done it; you know who you are!  Should I give this a try?  On a scale from 1-10, I am probably at a 5 for how interested I am in finding the right guy.  However, I also haven't been going out as much.  So, perhaps I should check it out and see if I am missing anything?

Wow, I am almost speechless...that says a lot.  A coworker from nine years ago (yeah, he had a crush on me) has been trying to get in touch with me.  Oh my god.  Way to leave a lasting impression, eh?

An Introduction

Even though Goodfella lives in New York, he was nice enough to set me up with his friend's friend's friend in San Francisco.  Goodfella had never met this guy before, but he heard good things.

The guy is really nice.  We talked on the phone, went out, and had some laughs.  Unfortunately, I think he likes guys (as in, he is gay).  I don't think he knows it yet, but all signs point to gay.  I have terrible gaydar, so if I think he likes guys...

I love how guys circle like vultures in San Francisco.  I am being completely serious.  It's a kind of social darwinism/survival of the fittest.  At any given bar, party, event, etc. there are always guys ready to jump to talk to one of the few ladies in the establishment.  I was at a party and talking to a guy friend I ran into.  He didn't want to leave my side, but he had to go to the bathroom.  As soon as he left, a guy came up to me.  Nice!

Perhaps I should go out more often...

You Want Me To Think I Know You?

I was on my way to work this morning and some guy I have never seen in my life gave me "the nod." "The nod" is that slight upward chin movement typically reserved for those you know or recognize, accompanied with direct eye contact. Since I don't know or recognize this guy, I simply glared and gave him the death stare. I was so scary that he jumped into the street and dodged oncoming traffic just to get away from me. Nice!! I don't think he really though he knew me. He was banking on me acknowledging him because most normal people:
  • Are polite (I can be depending on the circumstances, this was obviously not one where I would be)
  • Are really embarrassed if they don't recognize someone they have met before (I forget people all the time and it doesn't bother me at all)
I watched him cross the street and approach three different guys. I don't think he knew these guys either since I saw the confusion on their faces. However, these guys were polite, even when he threw his arm around them. He could have stolen their wallets for all they know.

Yeah, it's not very nice to death stare people I don't know, but this could really save my life or my wallet one day! And no, I wouldn't have death stared him if he was cute...

Green Counts

Yes, green as in money counts, but so does being green in the environmental sense.  I look down on guys that don't guy I went out with threw glass bottles in the trash.  And, what's with the inability to turn off lights when not in use?  Afraid of the dark?  One guy I know (friend of a friend) has the television or radio on all day (even when sleeping or out) because he doesn't like silence.  Issues much?

Does San Francisco encourage these "eccentricities?"

I rarely check my adventuresaurusgirl at address, but did today.  Wow, people want me to guest blog and plug their products/services.  Fascinating!!  I think this could work as a win win situation, I just need to figure out the logistics...

I Have This Friend

Okay, now this is a fairly transparent question/statement.

Guy (I have rebuffed him several times in the past three years): Are you dating anyone right now?  (He catches the "ew, are we doing this again" look on my face).  I have this friend I want you to meet.  I think you guys would hit it off.
Me:  Sounds great!  I am not dating anyone exclusively right now (or at all, but he doesn't need to know this).
Guy: Okay, I will put you in touch with each other.

I can think of at least five guys in San Francisco wanting to set me up with one of their friends, NONE of them have done it.  Hmm.  If you are trying to ask a girl out and offer to set her up with your friends, there is a disconnect.  Don't offer to set a girl up if you are the one interested in her!

Blast From The Past Week

This week has been a blast from the past. 
  1. Seen Surfer Guy about a billion times and it's only Wednesday.  Okay, not a billion times, but probably 30.  Yes, he has a girlfriend, but it's not my fault he keeps walking by my cube.  He's pretty cute, but I think that can be attributed to the fact that there are not any great looking heterosexual guys at work.  We also sat in a dark conference room for an hour next to each other.  That was awkward and yes, I might be in high school. 
  2. Odie wants to be my neighbor.  Wow, really?  Yes, this is what I hear.  I haven't seen him for months, so this is about right on time (the Odie cycle is repeating itself).  Somehow, I think this has something to do with me

Not So Dreamy

Remember Dreamy Guy?  Yeah, he is not so dreamy anymore.  I met up with him and caught up on old times.  We talked about what we have been up to for the last five years. He talked much more than I did. He talked about ex girlfriends and girls he is dating (that would indicate friend). Then he started listing all the things we should do together (that could indicate friend, but not with that level of enthusiasm).

Bottom line, I think he is really confused and lonely. I don't mind interacting with him as a friend, but I think he is too much of a wreck to consider for dating.

Another Event

I went to another event this week.  I am not sure what category the event falls into..."the arts," fundraiser, or party?  I think it was a party for "the arts."  However, none of the party goers were actually into the arts even though the event was at a museum.

I don't think I will go to many more of these events.  Patrons were primarily women, much older men, and more women.  I ran into some people I knew, but didn't necessarily want to talk to.  Arthur was there, but I pretended not to see him.

I must say, even though I am not interested in guys over 60, they do have chuztpah!  One guy asked me if I would go to dinner with him.  I said, no, but I did think it was great that he had the balls to ask.  I was very nice in my "pass."
