Sometimes the problem with dating in SoCal is this: today I spent half an hour talking to a really cute guy while he helped me pick out and package wine for an event I’m planning, and after the first five minutes I couldn’t help but wonder if he was gay.
This happens a lot here, especially in Hollywood. At L.A. Fashion Week last week, the first night I went out I thought, awesome, time to go scope out all the good looking, well-groomed fellas. Well…it was like 85% gay guys, 10% I’m not really sure what they were, and 5% straight and mostly taken. Of course, this was Fashion Week, so I’m not surprised, but still I feel like those general odds tend to apply in a lot of places/situations out here. I mean, the good thing is that I keep making new very-well dressed friends, many of whom are more well groomed than I am…or at least put a LOT more time into grooming themselves than I do. So, it's all fun, fine, and dandy.
Still, when you meet a guy like the one I met today, you would hate to feel like a fool, flirting with someone only to find out he bats for the other team. It’s hard enough dating these days when guys tend to mature even slower than they used to, but gee gol, did they have to make it harder than that? And don't get me wrong, I love my gay friends. But, gay guys lead straight guys to girls, and not really the other way around. Although, one of my gay friends told me that a lot more straight guys are going to gay bars now, because they know that girls will go with their gay friends to gay bars. Personally, I don't know if I'd trust a guy that desperate to meet a girl he'd go to a gay bar to meet her, when in the first place, she's there so that she's not bothered by creepos!
On the bright side, I’m not in a position to be dating anyone at the moment, so I guess it really doesn’t matter!
BIG LOVE & HUGS
