I also seem to attract the elderly and the crazy.
I used to be a bartender and coat-check girl at a local bar and there was this one toothless older guy who used to come in and corner me in the coat-check and try groping me and drool something about how he had enough money that he could buy the bar for me if i wanted it.
That got me to wondering, if he has enough money to buy a bar, why doesn't he buy any teeth?
When i was fifteen I was out at the local tavern (yeah, yeah, i was bad...) when my friend's 80 year old GRANDFATHER tried to pick me up! Ew, ew, ew, just thinking about it even now makes me want to hurl.
When I worked at the adult video store I had a lot of strange men proposition me.
My friends would get mad when I would say that no one wanted me, because people did want me, were intrigued by me, but they were all the wrong people.
I've been single for a long time and much like everyone else, my friends are all getting married and having babies and it's getting harder and harder to find any single friends to hang out with unless i want to spend my night choking to death on cologne at the local gay bar. I also have to wonder if because i've been single for so long and been burned so bad in the past if i can even trust anyone enough to start a relationship.
I think that's why I write...so i can find the perfect man, or at least my idea of the perfect man.
I have to agree that someone in their 30s looking for someone is limited on where to meet people unless they're looking for drive-thru baking. I have social anxiety too, which means that if i go out, i usually only hang out with my friends and i'm crazy shy.
sigh. i want to believe there's someone out there for me. sadly i think he might be a figment of my imagination.
Edit: i'm starting to feel like my debbie downer post has killed this thread already
I'm actually a pretty chipper person.
