(This is my log of dates from match.com)
What did I wear: Jeans, black v-neck, white shirt, black shoes…
Would I screw me? No… I may or may not have been bloated.
Odds of me getting laid: (0 means I am masturbating to old pictures of Tracey Gold and 10 means lots of lube) 0 … after date 1 I firmly believe all women are frigid.
Date location: Cool, semi-trendy bar
First impression: Attractive…. Score!
The date: Oh sweet irony. After having my date on the first night show up 45 minutes late I was 45 minutes late because I couldn’t find the bar. (I at least texted like 7 times though.)
Let me explain to the people that don’t live in the Boston area some facts about getting around here.
1) Our forefathers may have been smart but…. They were really shitty urban planners. Nothing is in a grid system here and roads continue on even though the road is no longer going straight. Here is a sample from Google maps.
Turn right onto Washington
Take a slight left to stay on Washington

I need to invest in a GPS. I have been able to drive cross-country, get around every major city, travel Europe, and navigate through Toys R Us. But I go out to get milk in Boston and I need to leave breadcrumbs behind me.
2) Nothing is marked… Street signs? Those are souvenirs for people’s apartments. Street numbers? Who needs them? Signs on buildings? They are for pussies. Why not just walk into the establishment and guess what it is. (Wait this is a strip club and not a daycare center… oh well.) The bar we were meeting at only had its name written on the window, un-lit, and not with a sign above it. I actually parked my car within two blocks of it off a guess and just wandered around until I saw a woman in the window that looked like my date with a glassed over bored look in her eyes. (that usually doesn’t happen until we hit the bedroom)
3) We have rotaries and roundabouts… California, Geneseo, NY…. and no other sane places have these.
Results: Had a few drinks, good conversation, same musical tastes, she likes sports, intelligent… We are going candlepin bowling next week. (I have never been.)
What has been the hardest place for you to get around in?
Tomorrow: I go on a date with an Asian girl… Finally.
