jetboyca posted recently (though it seems to have disappeared) about the difficulty of meeting new people... and as I sit here staring at my computer, with my merged buddylist of people I really don't want to talk to or at least don't have anything to say to, I consider the same thing.  It may seem lame, but I miss the days of AOL chat rooms (a/s/l anyone?) and IRC (complete with channel splits and op wars).  At least with the latter you could eventually end up at someone's house at an "IRC party", where I actually did meet quite a few interesting people.

The nice thing about these services is that there really wasn't anything else... so everyone was there.  Now it seems like there are so many different options that you don't know who's who on which network, and even if you figure that out it's all such a meat market now anyway that meeting people for friends is just a polite way of getting out of sex with someone you've decided just isn't hot enough.

So yeah... I'm not expecting a response or resolution to this issue... and I know I could go out and have a life or something... but what if I just want to sit here and ponder the meaning of life with a bunch of like minded individuals?

well.. I *did* comment on this "stuff" -- but to be honest, really felt more like a cry-baby than anything else. I'm *truly* exhausted with the prospect of mowing through guys at "drunk-yet-I'm-available" venues in search of someone who is both 1) not lit, and 2) has something unique to offer.

I don't expect friggin' Einstein. I just expect someone with a brain and an opinion they're willing to defend. Smartly. Is that so wrong? All I request is, "don't be a fucking idiot." Ch-riiiiii-st.

Re: D'oh

A) I'd consider your own personal LJ your forum to say whatever you want, including "cry-baby" like posts. It's yours, without reservation. You should unabashedly say what you feel... even if it's only a snapshot of a moment. :)

B) I'm all for finding places to hang out that don't require alcohol or drugs. Coffee shops come to mind... as does Samovar on the castro (which really is a wonderful place to hang out). Interested? :)
