I've only had two situations that might be remotely construed as "dates" from RJ.
I get asked out a lot in real life hardly ever online, I don't know if it's because I live in San Francisco or if I'm just so homely it takes less courage to ask me out.
I imagine the other guys internal dialogue goes something like: "Oh Christ look at him, of course he'll say yes, he probably hasn't been asked out on a date in years!"
I've been asked out:
- in the grocery store
- sitting on the bus
- waiting for my table at 2223 *while I was on a date with another guy*
- the park reading
- the Sprint store
- waiting at the bus stop by a guy driving by (i must have looked like a really cheap hooker)
- the gym is a hot bed of dates waiting to happen, I prefer predominantly straight gyms because I don't like the distraction
- the WORST time was when I was with my ex and his mother (my former mother in-law) a man saw me crossing the street when we were going into a restaurant for dinner, I smiled at him (because I'm friendly) 10 minutes later he showed up at our table to give me his business card... it was so embarrassing, my ex *of six years* and I had been broken up for two months at that point... I wanted to die.
I guess if you want to get dates, smile a lot, look homely and cheap and above all else, "cast a wide net" there are more freakshows than respectable guys. Sometimes, it's a numbers game.
