so,

So, the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, I was up late. I tend to procrastinate, and then I rush to get things done quickly. I had already been to the grocery store after work, having come home with the ingredients needed to make the baked macaroni & cheese , pumpkin pie and hazelnut cake that I was bringing to a friend’s house the next afternoon , but I was worried that I might not have gotten everything I needed, and the stores would be closed Thanksgiving morning. So, I went to the kitchen to prepare the baked macaroni & cheese, and I realized I had forgotten one of the two most important ingredients- the elbow macaroni. So I put on a pair of gym shorts, t shirt and flip flops and headed to the store. This was about 2 in the morning.


So, I get to the store, and I get my macaroni, and kind of regret making sure that I hadn’t forgot anything else, and I walk by the produce section, and I see this beautiful black woman. I’m staring at her, and insisting that I must say something. I decided that I was not going to talk myself out of it, but as I took a step towards her, I bump into a stack of avocados, set up in a pyramid formation about 4 feet high. Within seconds the aisle was sea of avocados, rolling in every direction, as I reach down the pick them up. I hear a woman’s voice behind me.

“I’ve knocked down a stack of oranges before, staring at someone,”

I look to my left to see an even more attractive black woman. I’m speechless. The type of women I’m attracted to mostly are as rare in Beaverton Oregon as a barbecue stand next to a Mosque, and I’m thanking God in my silence. So, I smile because she’s trying to make me feel better. And as I open my mouth to say whatever comes out of it, she says;

“She’s gorgeous.”

I respond by saying, “so are you.”

She smiles at me.

Her response?

“Thanks, that’s my girlfriend.I gotta go. ”

Then she scurries off, walking around the avocados, towards her.

I was so jealous. Two black women perhaps in their 30s. Two beautiful black women. In Beaverton. Together.

And me, and this box of elbow macaroni.

Someone messaged from an old Yahoo Personals posting I placed from years back. She didn't include a picture and her profile was bare-bones, but she asked me to call her. I decided, what the hell, I'll call her. If I didn't like what I hear, I'd just hang up on her--- which I did, when she told me she was scheduled for a gastric bypass since everything else she had tried for weight loss has failed, and it made her sad when her granddaughter told her she couldn't put her arms around her.

I haven't been waiting for women to message me. I've been messaging women as well. I don't any responses though.

Monday, October 12, 2009

bad news- 1 was 20, 1 was 54, the other was 60.
Good news- I received three messages from women who viewed my black singles account!

Nothing new to report.

She was not happy. She proceeded to tell me that I'm not all that, even though I never said I was all that. She's 56! I'm 46. What part of 'I'm looking to meet women in their mid 30s to 40s' did she not understand?

Friday, October 9, 2009

OMG, she responded. She asked if I was interested in meeting. She's ten years younger than my mother! I said as such, in my email, when I said no.

I received an email today from someone who view my profile on http://www.plentyoffish.com/. She couldn't be any more the opposite of what my profile clearly states I am looking for. I didn't ignore her. She said hello, and I said hello back. I'm hoping she doesn't mistake my politeness for interest.

I accessed my BlackSingles account profile today. I extended the search from locally to 25 miles from me, just to cast the net wider. I also viewed the women in my vicinity. I'm not saying I'm the most attracted man in the land, but the pickings are pretty slim. VERY slim.

Ok, so the person's name is Stephen? And I'm to search for LaManila? This is typical of the messages I get in my in-box.

:(

Nothing new to report, sad to say. Last night I went to best Buy to get Jay-Z's new cd, and this anrorexic-looking woman perhaps in her early 60s, stared at me like she thought I was trying to steal something, and she followed me as I exited the store. When I went to Powells' Books, she was there as well, and she approached me, asking if I knew that I looked like Emmit Smith. I smiled and said, "I get that all the time, but I don't see the resemblance." Anyway, like I said, nothing new to report.

I just read my email

From my hotmail account, I just read an email sent to from a woman who, though she seem to share my likes and dislikes, and she had an attractive body, she was cross-eyed. If it wasn't for the fact that she stated so, in the second email ( by the way, you'll notice I'm cross-eyed in the picture I sent you. I'm cross-eyed in real-life as well.. at least I'm honest!) I would have guessed that maybe that was a bad picture, but she said she posted the best one she could find. Scary.

Again, I ask, am I being too picky?
It's Thursday. Is it too late to look for a date for the weekend?
Are my standards too high? I'm not attracted to the morbidly obese, yet those are the most receptive towards me.

From personal experience, dating websites are waste of time. Most of my responses (craigslist, facebook, myspace, plentyoffish, blackplanet,arabium,iranian personals, yahoo personals) have been automated; beautiful women who can't spell, that have other emails for me to reply to, as the one they used to email me belongs to their sister or friend, and the email they provide is a link to a porn site. I fell for that the first time. Now, when I get those responses I can tell right away, and I delete them. The responses that are actually human, the women have not been the least bit attractive. I was going to cancel my profiles altogether, but I found another site last night, www.blacksingles.com; I'll try that. Wish me luck! I haven't tried the paid sites because it would anger me to spend money only to get automated messages or responses from women I'm not attracted to.

You might be wondering why I'm trying on-line dating; I know at least a dozen people who have met the loves of their life. It's gotta work for me, right? Stay tuned....

Nothing to report today, but a friend send me this cartoon today and I had to post it

here's a new concept

Instead of sitting back and letting things happen, I'm going to take charge and make things happen. What does that mean? I have no idea, but I'll figure it out. Since nothing else I've tried seems to be working-
