Lately, I've for the most part been a bit discouraged by what's out there in terms of the dating scene. My friend Joel, from NYC, whom I met on my European trip, and I chat almost everyday about our trials and tribulations on our individual online dating scenes (he's straight and jewish, btw). He recently signed up on jdate.com and I signed up on match.com. He's been fortunate enough to actually go on a few dates with a few girls. I barely get a response and if I do it's Thanks, but I've already started to see someone. Does my timing suck or is it just a cordial act on their part? I'm leaning towards the latter.
I guess all of this hit rock bottom when all of my HS friends went back to school. I truely had a blast while they were all in town. However as soon as they left, I've been pretty much isolated from the world once more.
The really sad thing is that the only friend I've been completely open with lately is my friend Joel, who is all the way on the other side of the country. And it's not because of the fact that he's all the way over there. As some of you may already know, I've recently lost one of my best friends because he's become a selfish bastard. There's my friend Cari, but we can never match our schedules together to have a real good talk.
I honestly don't know where I'm going with this, but I just needed to sound off on it...
Again, I'm seriously contemplating moving out of the Bay entirely. The place I've spent my entire life in is increasingly becoming more and more foreign to me. I have a feeling I've said all of this before about moving. The constant reminders that surround me in the most fucked up ways keep making them resurface in my mind.
