and he uttered a *gah!* of righteous indignation...

It's not all that bad, really. I just find it a little difficult, as such things tend to be for a young man staring hard at thirty, single, and stuck out in the wilderness alone.
It's been two and a half months since my ex and I finaly managed to split up after three years (and she's already married- that stings a bit I must say, even though you couldn't have Paid me to remain with her), and I find I haven't the slightest idea where to meet someone interesting and attractive (and intelligent, educated, old enough, emotionaly mature, eccentric, sensual, etc.etc. etc....) *bewildered sigh* yeah, the older I get, so to doth the list grow, and somehow everyone who I'm pointedly Not interested in think's i'm just Grand, and anyone I actualy think is nifty won't give me the time of day.
Example? Gay men, little old ladies, little girls, and the chunky pagan brigade all simply LOVE me. Attractive women somewhere close to my own age? forget it (unless, of course, I'm involved then they come out of the damn woodwork, but that's how it goes isn't it?)
So, on a whim I decided to give this a shot.
Now, i've learned this lesson before some years earlier and wound up buying coffee for a man in drag and going out with a girl who thought boone's farm was fine wine *shudder*.
So far the only mail I've gotten is from men (one of which was a scam), and I'm pretty sure most of the women I've attempted to contact are either scams, large hairy men attempting to lure hapless young lads to some smelly fate, or people misrepresenting themselves as someone hot and tempting, when actualy it's a rather unfortunate woman with rollers in her hair, a lipstick smeared cigarette hanging from her lips, and a floral print moo-moo that could double as a circus tent, that or another boy who lost his Y cromosome somewhere. *sigh*
Surely, Surely there's some woman out there who is on even footing with me who's just as bewildered at dating prospects as I am and decided "eh, what the hell".
perhaps I'm just too old and bitter, and should go buy myself a rubber date and be done with it (though the faces on those things remind me of very dead fish... I really don't know how I could deal with that).
Wow, this entry is sad. you'd think someone who'd been an essayest for NPR and published a book would be a little more entertaining wouldn't you?
Off night I suppose.
or maybe I just suck.
