Guess he's still out of town on that family emergency..everything's okay! You start chatting with a guy on Ok Cupid (This is obviously going to end well, I mean, it started with Ok C...) and you try to make plans to meet up. That commute sounds completely doable, considering you don't own a car and all! You go out with a friend and meet her cute coworker. You make out at a bar at the end of the night and exchange numbers.
You meet a guy at a bar, he texts to hang out next Friday and gives you an address. All this for the equivalent of a 30-year-old frat boy in the city. You tell him you don't have any gym clothes on you. This would be any girl's dream -- all ten are late 20s/early 30s, cute, fit and Harvard Business School grads...except they're all playing speed pong (an even more intense version of beer pong -- yes, I had to look up what that was.) This was the big date you got ready for and analyzed outfits with your girlfriends for hours on end with and curled your hair and wore your nice perfume for. You date a guy for a while (read: hang out his apartment and watch HBO.) And one day he tells you that he's going to the gym (Equinox, of course) and that you can come along if you want.

People are not willing to take the time to actually get to know each other because if it doesn't happen tonight, then screw it, they're moving onto the next girl. People are a commodity since there's always a new fresh batch moving in with bright-eyed wonder and innocence.
The most exciting place you have sex other than a certain guy's bed is his couch..the Yankees game going on in the background. Conversation flows, you laugh at each other's lame jokes; it's going well, right?
Can you be blamed for thinking through your to-do list whilst A-Rod is up? Did I mention you also got him a Cronut (this was during Summer 2013, a.k.a.
The guy is probably more into the score of the Yankees game as well. the heyday of the Cronut craze where you woke up at the crack of dawn and waited three hours in line to get one and saved it for him instead of giving it to your sister, or scalping it for ?
) And then he has a family emergency that he needs to go out of town for, but he will DEFINITELY call you when he gets back. You go out with a big group and end up alone with a friend of a friend.
