Back To That Article

I read it.  Seems like the two testers liked Coffee Meets Bagel the best.  However, both of these testers would prefer to meet someone offline and have not made any arrangements for second dates.

I think that's just how dating (or life) is in SF.  Most people (guys and girls) want immediate fireworks and if that's not what is experienced, they think, "Whatever."  I do it, it's like a normal part of life in SF.  I don't like the person I've become.  I feel really unmotivated (in all walks of life) here.

Oh, That's Shady!

I was pretty impressed that this guy tried to pick me up at Whole Foods tonight (the one in SOMA).  I saw him checking me out.  Then he approached me.  He was a pretty good looking guy, said he owned a bunch of companies, etc.  While he was talking to me, he had his left hand behind his back.  Yes, he was trying to remove his wedding ring (which I had already seen).  He must have gained weight over the years because there was a deep ring indent.  Then, he tried to get me to go out to dinner with him.

As shady as it was, at least he tried!

Horrible Event

My friend dragged me to a Stir event over the weekend.  It was horrible.  I hadn't been to one of those in years, now I remember why, I'm not missing anything.  Why was it horrible?
  1. Ladies outnumbered the guys (that's okay, see reason #2)
  2. No guys I would willingly want to see again to in a million years (one guy was interviewing me for the role of thank you)

What City?

I found this to be very interesting. Earlier this year, iVillage came up with a bunch of cities that are good for women.  I would really like to know more about their methodology.  What's really interesting, is this list is broken down by age categories.

Of course, San Francisco, CA and Palo Alto, CA made the cut.  And, as we know, SF is full of man-children.  I don't really think this is a good list.

Absolutely Not

Smart Guy keeps looking at my profile. If he thinks this will get me to respond, I'd say, absolutely not!

I really don't have a very good opinion of him. If he was a nice guy, I would have totally told him I'm not interested.

Hah, Coffee!

Smart Guy contacted me twice this weekend! I find this to be hilarious since it didn't seem like he was all that interested in anyone other than himself (when we were on speaking terms). He asked me out for coffee. No, I am not going or even replying, still feel that he doesn't deserve a response. 

I spent a good five minutes remembering why I stopped taking to him: 1) very condescending, 2) major downer and whiny, 3) inconsiderate, and more...  These reasons are enough for me!

Thoughts On SF

This blurb by Peter Shih is old news, but still an interesting read.  He despises SF and has apologized for this blurb.  However, some of his points are dead on.

I've Seen This Before

Just came across this article about some men feeling threatened by successful girlfriends.  I've seen this before.  I try not to let it happen to me because I don't usually talk about work, and if I do, I play it down.  I almost never mention my education unless a guy won't drop it.

Unfortunately, in the Bay Area, I've met a lot of guys that try to compete with me.  It's all about one upping.  It could be "I went to a better school" or even "This is why my day was crappier than yours."  I never experienced this anywhere else, have you?

The Weather

It's been pretty nice out in SF, I would venture to say, summer is here!  Warm weather usually does things to people.  Smart Guy contacted me again .  I haven't spoken to him in almost a year and do not plan responding.  In the past, I didn't respond because I didn't feel like he deserved a response.  Now, I don't respond because 1) he still doesn't deserve a response and 2) I'm certain he would say something highly inflammatory (after I tell him to go away), which would lead to a never ending text fight; I don't feel like letting a d*che like him anger me.

Please Don't Worry

Some of you have emailed me about this post.  Please don't worry, I am in a really good place right now.  That was just my way of saying, I'd rather be happy alone than settle for a dbag, such as, The Brain, Smart Guy, etc.

Some of you have said I should maybe reconsider The Brain because of his flush bank account.  I did reconsider this for a little while, learned he has not changed for the better, and came to the conclusion that he does not have enough dough for me to put up with him...not even close.

Sniff Sniff

So, I was recently reminded of a guy I met at a party what seems like forever ago.  I saw him out of the corner of my eye at several different points in the evening.  Eventually, he found me and started a conversation.  We were chit chatting, nothing spectacular, nothing horrendous.  He asked me for my email address, I gave it to him, and continued wandering around.  He emailed me the next day or maybe a day later, I can't remember.  He asked me what day I was free, I said weekend.  Then he proposed a date and I told him I was busy.  His reply????  "Sniff, sniff."  No, I did not think this warranted a response.  I did not like his response, it was like he was saying, "Poor me, I am pathetic and don't have the balls to ask you for another date" kind of response (at least that's how I read it).

I want a real guy, none of this weak, I'm going to go cry in a corner guy.  I am in the wrong city!
