So I was at The Cott last night. For those of you who haven’t been there, the crowd is mostly white and preppy: think OC, Dawson’s Creek, BH90210 or all those countless US TV shows and movies and how they’d potray the “cool” kids. It was like that. Here’s a sample.
Me no complain because the girls really dressed to kill. Which brings me to some questions that I get asked a lot:
- “How do you expect to meet a nice girl in places like these?”
I don’t. I like having fun, I like drinks and I like music. I don’t go to pubs/clubs for the sole purpose of hooking up. Ch-yeah, if that was my whole point of going out I’d be one depressed mofo. In my entire clubbing life, I’d only ever hooked up *once*. Yeah, don’t cry for me Argentina … so ok?!!?
- “Why do you just look? Why don’t you do something about it?”
So I have to prove my manhood by hitting on girls all night? F**k that. If she smiles at me I may strike up a conversation with her, but if she didn’t even realise my presence, if she’s not even looking my way I just can’t do it. I’m shy like that. Yeah I’m gutless. You make a move on the girl if it bothers you that much that *I* am not doing anything about it.
Think of it my way: it’s like art and I can appreciate its beauty without needing to have it. Just because I’m looking at it, it doesn’t neccesarily mean that I’d want to buy it. 😛
Which really explains why I end up knowing the bar staff more – it’s easier to start chatting to them. Plus there are benefits to knowing the bar staff. 😉
- “But you are 30 already, why don’t you settle down?”
You got your timetable, I got mine. Simple as that. Some ppl settle down early, some later. And some may never settle down. Yeah Hugh Hefner is my IDOL. 😉
