date denied. i gave my number, he did not give his. no offer for other plans or anything. he did have good things to say about demetri martin though, i should hook them up.
I hung out with the 28 year old last night, he is way more excited about some new video game than any grown man should be. He couldn't understand why I wasn't into video games, I informed him that I actually like leaving my house to play with my friends in person instead of over an RPG video game. 28 is too fucking young.
Given up logging into OkChicken and reverting to an old fashioned way. Supermarket Aisles. Played it too cool with blue-star-tattoos-on-her-hand girl last week, after having exchanged a couple eye contact deep stares near the deli and canned goods sections, but won't make the same mistake again.
True, I can't seem to find a mature man who isn't old. I am almost 40 but I live a pretty young life. Guys my age are too old but the younger guys I am finding seem to be too young. I thought I could just "hang out" with this guy for now until I found someone I was more interested in, but I found we had nothing to talk about, so we watched 2 hours of South Park. I just don't see this working for me.
I like video games but I don't think I'd talk about it on a date unless I knew the other person was into them too. And even then I'd be wary of luring in a guy who wanted to play them all the time.
Yeah, he gave me the impression that he likes video games more than real life. He listed 4 new games he is really excited about, and told me when Halo 4 comes out I probably won't hear from him for 3 weeks or more. I can deal with an every 3 week kind of schedule, if I could actually find something to talk to the guy about.
Experiences like that one is why I stopped online dating (I know, I only gave it, what, a month?), that shit is so discouraging.
And for the record, I really enjoy video games, and I am 28. However, I never bring video games up on the first date, or second, or third, or whenever the fuck. It isn't something I want to try and hide and it isn't something I would be embarrassed about, but (most) women out there care very little for video games, so why make it a point of discussion if I am interested in her?

If you have clicked on my picture that probably means your interest has been piqued. So ... a bit about myself. I'm a 31 year-old transgender man.

I consider myself a pretty earthy guy. I'm very calm most of the time, but I am a redhead, so when I do get riled up it can be a sight to behold.
If they aren't red headed AND trans i'm not interested. They were so close though.
My general rule of thumb has been to get as wasted as possible on first dates so i can just get all my dirty laundry and bad traits out on the table and if they like what they see, then it can only go up from there

So this bro is sending me mixed signals I THINK because (and while I can freely admit that I could have been more assertive in making something physical happen but I tend to like it when the guy does that first) I've hung out twice with him at his place and no physical moves were made. Except that after he walked me to the door last night and hugged me (gross), THEN he told me I could stay there if I wasn't okay to drive (I was)--the caveat there being that he just moved in so he doesn't have a couch so it would obviously be in his bed. Was that a move? Whatever. If it was it was a bad one.
I also might have gotten him way too stoned.
it probably won't make you less intimidating but you should tell him to grow a pair ;p
guys are scared of pretty girls
The thought of getting naked crossed my mind but then I started thinking about the whole logistics of how to make it happen...
He told me about how at 19 he made out with whoever that singer is from Paramore who was not yet famous and only 17 which isn't necessarily something I think someone tells another person if they're remotely interested in trying to bone down. And also it's sort of like....who gives a shit?
to hell with all those abysmal "couldn't have sex at the time", times
It is a dejected and confused set of bones that goes unjumped.
actually, did he really not have a couch? How the hell do you invite a chick over without a couch? Unless he's so fucking smooth that all his hookups begin in his bed. which doesn't seem to be the case.
gotta have a couch. Sometimes don't even need the bed.
