Small town Hook-ups.....are they worth it?

OK - I live in a small town. I don't live in the town my profile says, rather a small town about 15 miles away from it. I had a feeling if I posted the actual name of the town, it wouldn't take long for those Sherlock Holmes wannabe's to figure me out & then I'd be branded with the metaphoric scarlet letter and have to stand in the middle of town while they force-fed me communion crackers and threw holy water on me...which is wierd because I'm not even Catholic.

But anyway - if you all read my blog yesterday, you can probably tell that I had a pretty crappy day. Now - one of my major pet peeves is when someone has a problem and does nothing but bitch about it. Don't get me wrong - I'm a fan of bitching (in case you couldn't tell), but when it's bitching about the same thing over and over and over and not doing anything to fix what you're bitching about - it annoys me. So after said jerkface called me & unknowingly re-enforced my reasons for being single, I decided I was going to go out for some drinks with a couple friends. So we went, and met Jose a couple times. By around 10, i was feeling pretty damn good and we were all having a wonderful time. THEN....this guy approaches me. He's probably one of the best looking men I had ever seen, nice, funny, etc...but he's a MAJOR player in our town. I had talked to him a couple times before, but nothing had ever even remotely come close to happening between us. However, last night, I was tempted - and that's what freaks me out. If my friends hadn't reminded me about how "word gets around" in our town, I think I would have let him take me home.

But I didn't, even though it would have been awesome - and it's most definitely a good think that I didn't go with him. Mostly because I would feel terrible about it this morning, because I still can't do the whole "justifying casual sex" thing. Also, because the rumor mill would have went into overdrive & my family is pretty involved in the community. Would have been so great to have my older brother come up to me & ask me how Wednesday night went. i hate small towns! Why in the hell did I move back here?

Dammit - I just need to go to a bigger town where no one knows me - LOL. No, that wouldn't work either. Oh well. I'm just doomed to a life of celibacy I think, until Matthew McConahay comes to his senses at least.

Nope - it's not worth it. Trust's NOT. Just pick a weekend, go to a bigger town, get a hotel room, and have fun. At least then, not everyone and their grandma will know about it.

i cant stand when people do that!! bitch and bitch and bitch. I used to have a friend like that. After a few years, I just couldnt hang around with him anymore. too many negative vibes! And the whole time I thought that,

"Why the hell doesnt he just shut up and do something about it then???"

Great post, and sorry you had a shitty day.

If you're looking, I frequently visit your part of the state...maybe we could get together sometime?
