I'm Taking Another Break

I'm taking another break on the whole guy hunt (for now, if I stay in SF, probably forever).  I'm going to spend my time thinking about what I want to do for the rest of my life (or at least the next couple years).  It'd be nice if I could answer these questions:
  • What do I want to do?  Get a new job?  Go back to school?
  • Do I want to stay in SF?
 I've got a vacation coming up.  I will of course observe the men in these cities and report back.


  1. Food for thought: my good SF friend just got engaged to her OkC boyfriend, they dated 14 months. I continue to remain hopeful there's good ones here :)

  2. I'm ready to take another break too. I've had this weird phenomenon happen lately where a girl will respond to me and we'll message back and forth for a bit and then they just stop responding. Some I've actually gotten to the point of agreeing to meet for a drink. But then they too disappear.

    It's happened like 5 or 6 times now over the past few months. It's really frustrating and making me bitter and less willing to put any effort into my searches.

    I don't mean to vent, but I feel you on stepping back a bit. I do this at work all the time and it always helps. :)

    1. It's clearly not a men or women only thing, j! That would happen to me ALL THE TIME. And I've been stood up, in the sense that the guy never confirmed the day of and twice, I showed up and he never did. What the eff?!

    2. Yeah, that's pretty messed up. The worst I've done is not respond to an initial message. I've grown to accept that. But walking away from a conversation or standing someone up without warning or explanation is just plain messed up.

    3. Standing up is totally rude! Sorry, guys.

      I've been known to drop off after a couple of emails. It's definitely happened to me too and it doesn't bother me because 8 out of 10 times, I don't notice (ie corresponding with too many different guys on too many different sites, apps, whatever)
