Where the hell do you go to meet people in this city? Twenty minutes on Time Out New York's website and I already feel like a fucking Smiths song. And is there no acknowledged middle ground between "gunning for matrimony" and "gunning for an anonymous rum-soaked three-way that I'll record and post on my MySpace page"? Because while I like sex as much as anyone, I would prefer that it not be with someone abhorrent, and there simply is no way to weed out abhorrent people without some kind of minimum waiting period like for handguns. Am I the only person who has realized this? The other people who have realized it, where do I go to meet them?
I just want to enjoy a man's company and have a few drinks with him and flirt a little and maybe touch hands. This is a universal need. And it has been years.
