An amusing sidenote: I met the ex through another woman I used to date and stayed very good friends with as well. All from the same workplace. Slowly but surely, I am achieving my Ironic Master Plan of infecting the entire health care industry with HPV. Just kidding. Mostly.
And, as I mentioned, don't be so quick to discount the threesome.
The ex is now bothered by it and trying to goad the friend into not seeing me anymore. Hmmph.
I suppose this would be why meeting women through ex's is not generally seen as a viable way of meeting them.
So have we really all just ignored ramble's use of the capitalized term "Marriage Material?" WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO US?
Used my beer pong skills to score last night. Thanks college.

may have been propositioned yesterday ("The doctor wants to know if you make house calls"). Uh-oh. Guess we'll find out.
Passing her in the hallway could see the googly eyes and ten minutes later her staff member asked that question. Covering for a partner who is on a fishing trip and he says he’s never been to the doctor’s house in the three years that he’s serviced her account. He’s also fifteen years older than me and overweight. Could be wrong, but probably not.
Trying to go with my friends' advice and put myself out there anyway. Texted one of the girls who I had gone on a date with and had suggested we go out again, and got rejected. Dealing with that by messaging women on OKC. We'll see if this goes anywhere (unlikely, but worth a try).

I don't know why I never checked this thread out before.
I have been officially, completely single/ex-free for four months, and so far the single life has been comprised of a few false-starts and occasional mediocre sex. I've tried to go outside my comfort zone but my efforts read like a grown-up version of Goldilocks: this one is too fat, this one is too old, this one showed up on LSD. On the other end there are the ones who seem great off the bat, then quickly deteriorate from there. It's not hard for me to meet guys (I'm into girls too, for the record), but I'm having a hard time meeting anyone I want to see more than once or twice, much less fuck or commit to.
I told myself that if I didn't meet anyone special in Brazil or at Coachella I would bite the bullet and sign up for match.com. I figure I should be open to all facets of meeting people, because you never know where The One may be.
Anyhoo yeah kind of a bummer right now but there are so many people in the same place as I am, and anyway I'm happiest snuggled up on the couch with wine, netflix, and dog. I have faith the rest will come.
He sounds like a real catch.
this must be a generational thing. a text is fine. it's less awkward than a phone conversation where both people keep awkwardly saying "so, uh... no you, no you" at the same time.
i am really just not a phone person. i only like talking on the phone with about five people whom i've known for many many years and i don't see very often. generally i feel like phone conversations are fairly aimless and i feel uncomfortable about when i can end the call. if it's early enough on in the "relationship" that someone has to think about whether to text or call, we probably are still a little awkward and getting to know each other, which means we won't have comfortable phone rapport yet. plus i'm busy and can't talk on the phone a lot.
and text is just another form of communication. whether someone i'm into asks me out in person, calls, texts, emails, faxes, or facebook messages me out, if i like them i'll be happy they asked me out and gladly accept. who the fuck cares how they do it?! if you have to worry about whether the person will be receptive to your chosen method of communication; they probably aren't that into you.
