In an effort to help keep them straight in my head, here’s the current state of affairs.
Again, in no order of priority:
- Astoria dude: currently in Las Vegas for work with an unknown return to NYC. While in LA, I received a text from him saying that we need another day of eat/sleep/tv when we’re both back home. I like him and he comes with perks, but don’t think those perks are worth it. He likes to drink a lot and gamble and well… I’d rather eat clean and wake up early for a nice long run. Doomed? Very well could be.
- LA-turned-Seattle dude: he’s officially back in Seattle. I haven’t reached out to him since asking if he made it ok; I figure he’s got enough going on in his head and his life.
- LA dude: surprisingly, he’s STILL the most active in the rotation.
Speaking of rotation, I’m looking to ramp it up again, so I’ve been back on Tinder, but damn – what slim pickings!! Last night, I received a message from a Tinder dude here that I hadn’t spoken with in a month. ONE MONTH!! Da hell?!
Even better, while I was out west, I received an email from a guy I’d chatted with on Tinder when we were both in Japan. We hit it off via chats and emails back in March. Then I heard from him maybe two months later, saying he was going to be in NYC this summer and would I be around. I said yes, I should be just coming back from a work trip. Then the week that he’s here, I get an email asking if I’m free that night or the following night. ARE YOU KIDDING ME?? I totally forgot about your dumb ass!! But I’m supposed to just drop everything to see you? #1) no. #2) i’m not even in the same time zone. #3) no. Needless to say, I didn’t respond to his stupid email. Stupidity copied below VERBATIM because the screen shot didn’t come out well:
Who the hell says “swell” but old people and assholes?
Come on, NYC – you can do better than this!! Can’t you?? Ughh..
