On the condition of anonymity, the guy who ran the missed connection on Craigslist about all the hotties in his ‘hood spoke up about why he ran the ad and his thoughts on dating in DC. (Men are immature and date crazy bitches, and women
have a stick up their ass are a tad uptight.)
He didn’t get any takers from the ad, but it doesn’t seem like that was the point of it anyway.
SS: What was the impetus behind this craigslist posting?
CHHG: Let’s say sometimes I just like saying what’s on my mind and not having any regrets the following morning that I didn’t say or express what was of that moment.
SS: Were you frustrated with dating or simply inspired by all the pretty ladies and just had to put it out there?
CHHG: The latter.
SS: How/where do you usually meet people in DC?
CHHG: I’m not a club goer (anymore) or a bar fly, but do have an okay social life. Having grown up here, gone to college here, I know many circles of friends, which leads to meeting others, flirting, etc. But having said that, many of my long-time friends are now married with kids. So that cuts down to basically zero the chance of meeting any of their single female friends or friends who are separated/about to be single. Occasionally, I do check out the CL dating ads, have placed a LTR ad a couple of times and did go out on a few dates with a woman I met on OKCupid.
Meeting women has never really been a problem for me. I’m not patting myself on the back, but rather, I make friends with women much easier than with men– too many of whom I find immature and unbearable to be around with all the talk about their xbox, their new Audi, some cool new stock they just bought or about their new skateboard. These are grown men. Let’s say women and I tend to get along really well.
SS: Are you this outgoing all the time?
CHHG: Depends on the company, the situation, my mood. I can be. Having said that, most of the time I’m pretty low profile–the observant quiet type.
SS: How does dating in DC differ from other places you’ve lived/where you grew up?
CHHG: For the most part, women in DC take themselves MUCH TOO seriously, which kills the entire desire to ‘approach’. My experience on the West Coast is 180 degrees different. Women are socially aggressive with an obvious sense of sexual liberties (not buttoned down like DC) and are easily approachable.
SS: What are your thoughts on how men date in DC?
CHHG: I know/have known too many guys who date crazy women. I mean crazy. (Sorry, i tend to keep my nose out of other people’s business, thus i don’t really have any thoughts on this.)
