I've heard that before, too, but I don't know where the stereotype comes from.

Ha! Nice all around. Your dad, that is.

DC is correct. They don't call them Lezbarus for nothin'. And I can say that with certainty because one of my lesbian friends drives one.

Alright. I think there might be something going on here, but it might all be in my head. I don't know. I'm hoping it is. Kind of.

So there are two guys that work at the post office in town. One guy just got married last year and is sort of a friend of the family. He's friends with the other guy that works there, who's single.

Basically, I'm sort of thinking that he and my parents might think it would be a good idea to set us up or something. And he's sort of cute, but older than me (and I don't know by how much). It's just weird and feels uncomfortable.

Do you guys remember back a couple of months when my truck, Bucky, died and stuff? Well, the guy from the post office stopped and looked at the truck and stuff. So....whatever.

Just had to get it off my chest. That's what she said. Hopefully, I can stop thinking about the whole situation.

Doesn't sound like a problem, Toos. Can you let your parents and friend know you're not interested in being set up, if that's the case? And if you're interested (in him without the set-up), can't you just find reasons to see and talk to him and see if a relationship develops? I get the feeling the small-town part, where everyone knows and sees everyone else, makes things harder. Shame you didn't know about boobquake sooner. Might have moved the whole situation along a bit.

But, see, I'm not entirely sure it is going on. It just seems that way, for some reason. But if and when any of them say anything, I'll try to politely get out of it then.

Mom had her shot with a fix-up a while back and it was the worst situation of my life. No, it wasn't, really, but she's definitely not getting another chance.

Yes. Yes. Eep.

It's just weird and feels uncomfortable.

If you never do anything that's weird and feels uncomfortable, you'll never get anywhere in life.

Apr 26th 2010

Don't you have good-uncomfortable and creepy-uncomfortable? I just want the good-uncomfortable.

Toos, I was pathetic at asking women out, or initiating any kind of contact at all. It's only because my wife came after me that I'm married at all. But once, 15 years ago, I talked to a woman I kind of knew at a basketball game, then called her several nights later to ask her out to dinner. I was shot down in an awkwardly awful way, and it smarts just to think about how terrible it all was. And I wouldn't change it for a thing. I'm so glad I got to experience that. I'm not being sarcastic.

I still see her around town now and then. I'm sure she is uncomfortable around me. I guess I am uncomfortable around her too, but it just makes me think about the time I went for it, and that makes me happy.

Why is it creepy? The age thing? Just pretend I'm interested in you (and stuff). Then he won't seem nearly as creepy.

Apr 26th 2010

I don't know why it's creepy.

And actually, I think that if he had just asked me out 6 months or a year ago, I'd have said yes. But it's just weird that it'd go this way.

And, then, I mean, I'm not even sure anything is going on, but it just sort of seems that way.

Apr 26th 2010

Oh, it's on.

Crap.
