I really do not want to go to Austin! I know everybody loves it. Everybody in El Paso surely loves it. Also, my extended family is crazy about UTAustin - they always give money to the school - but none of the family children have been accepted there, so I know that my parents would be ecstatic to hold that trophy... Not to mention, in-state tuition is like a 50% off deal... But I get a bad vibe in Austin. It feels hostile to me. I also get the feeling that the whole city would be nauseated, were it to be alive. NYC, on the other hand, is my home. I must go back.

So, I never heard from the text girl. I'm going to call her today probably just to get her story. But it was all for the better. I wound up going to a piano bar with a few friends. There was a girl there I had met briefly about a month ago. At some point, she held up her beer to me and said "Does this look like Killians?" I agreed and she said "It was supposed to be a Bass." She drank about half of it and left it on the table. So I passed the waitress on the was to the bathroom and said "Hey, can you bring me a Murphy's and a Bass when I come back?" I handed her the Bass when she came back...eyes lit up, big smile, "Cheers!"
I don't think I've ever bought a near stranger a drink. I'd like to think it was the thoughtfulness that worked and not just a free drink, but I definitely got her attention and we stayed pretty late and talked.
That's awesome, Marc. Things happen for a reason. Even if you never see the girl again, sounds like you had a fun night.
Act now ladies! These men won't last long, but if you call and mention the offer code DESPERATE we'll give you a second date for half off - just pay shipping and handling (e.g. lots and lots of alcohol and a cab).
Today I am trying out OKCupid's (phone app) "Locals" feature. The only other time I've used this was the night of that really bad date.
Apparently this seems to be the way to pick up creeps, I've already had two people I've never contacted before send me messages very directly asking for sex. One included (in his first/only message to me) that he would need for me to pick him up at his job at the mall, in another city, and that we'd have to go to my place because he lives with his family. He's in his 30's. Wow.
Can you at least find out what store he works at at the mall? *pleasebeakioskpleasebeakiosk*

Ha Robin, I went to high school around that area. I am well versed with all the sketch parts of New Haven. I have dated two Yale guys. But by dated, I mean one was more of a drunken hookup, and the other was more of a long-distance torturous unrequited love wherein we only say each other like once every three months and it eventually dissolved into massive failure when he decided to go get a neuroscience graduate degree at the U Chicago. So I wouldn't say I look back fondly on that city for its dating prospects.
I recently had to move back in with my parents cause my old man had a heart attack. He asked me to cover the bills while he recovers. I like to open with "I live at home" sometimes just to see if the girl responds like a bitch or not
Ha, you should be careful about that Mo. Unless you're trying to weed out dating people like me. Because I would definitely see a huge red flag if a guy told me he was living at home. I mean, yes there are legitimate reasons to do so, and I actually lived at home myself fairly recently, but it would still make me extra cautious and I would need extra assurance that the guy was indeed ambitious, driven, proactive, etc, and not just a lump on his mom's couch.

Okay, Mo, you probably don't also immediately suggest hooking up and mention your job in a strip mall.
Living at home is definitely a red flag though at my / this guy's age. And really simply put, I don't want to have to deal with someone's parents while I casually date them.
Seriously though, the red flag makes semse, but you just have to be more attentive. If some one is living at home but they roll around in 20k car and have a corporate job, itd be wise to ask some more questions before writing them off.
And regarding casual dating, thats been the hardest part. my last location was fucking amazing and I never had to play away team. playing away team sucks balls, especially in the winter.
