Roundtable: Elimidating

Y'know...I forget who it was I was talking to recently, but we were discussing the seemingly stultifying air in Seattle that prohibits all of its single population from having a good time dating other people. It's an odd thing.

I just remember saying at one point: "I've been living in Seattle for 15 years now...that's a long time to be single."

Not like there haven't been opportunities for the "hit-it-and-quit" (as Roundtabler Carol so succinctly put it); but anything remotely stable and lasting longer than a couple of months? Not so much.

I own up to my part in the thing (really, a story best saved for later), but you kinda have to start looking across the table and wonder what's going on over there.


Perfect Procrastinator Suzanne found herself an exception to the rule, they've moved beyond the first hurdle with flying colors, and they are heading towards the flaming hoop of possible date #2, here's hoping he does well. It went so well, she's now reminiscing about the ones that made her think "never again" shudderingly, and she'd like to hear your similar tales of dating woe.

Go there, or'll be forced back into the dating Seattle.

Hopefully a flaming hoop... as opposed to flaming poop, which too many of my other dates have been.

Perhpas it's because he's from San Fran?

Oh, a fresh out-of-towner! That may very well explain it.

I don't know about fresh, per se... he lives in San Fran, works a lot up here. Lived up here one summer while he was still in law school.

He definitely hasn't rotted, though.
