YSaC, Vol. 719: Me ^ You ^ !Me

me and you and not me – m4w (out of my leagueeee)


I seen a few times 2 years back eating by yourself at Rainforest Cafe
I tried to send you TelepaThic messages cuz I was too shy to confront you (and rightly so)

Caught some glances my way, but was way too scared to amble over.
So im writing now to say that I should have known that i’ve never been more ready to make a fool of myself.

hope to see you soon, mystery lady.

So which is more quixotic: trying to find a woman you sent telepathic messages to two years ago at a Rainforest Cafe, or trying to create a “missed connection” with every single girl you come in contact with during your day?

And by quixotic, I mean creepy ....

And there your were – m4w – 21


i seen you this morning at the computer store.there was alot of subtle flirtation.i didnt see a ring on your finger so when i got into my car i screamed YES!!!!! than quickly stopped because i forgot my rear window was down and i scared a small child i think becasue she was running to her dad…the dad quickly started running towards my vehicle so i had to leave in a hurry and it certainl runied my o so glorious moment..what a shame.i hope you feel what i did.i know its real.i know its not fake because i know its real..not fake.unless its real but a fake real..

One of our hobbies is playing Rock Band. Silly, yes, but fun. I’ve taken to trying to play a real bass guitar instead of the fake bass while we play Rock Band, just to see if I can keep up. (I usually can’t, but it’s fun to try.) I refer to it as the act of playing fake fake bass. Now I’m worried that my fake fake bass is real but a fake real, which would mean I was playing fake fake fake bass. Which only makes a little less sense than this ad.

Thanks, Litarider and Angela!

On top of that goes the heated sauerkraut, a nice slice of Gruyere cheese and homemade thousand island dressing, all between two slices of fresh rye bread. To.Die.For.

    I know I’m not good enough for you! – M4T

    I saw you sitting there at the restaurant and knew immediately that I didn’t deserve you. I sent you TelePathetic messages with my mind, but you ignored them, and rightly so because I did not deserve your time. You caught me glancing your way a few times but I was scared and didn’t pick you. I should have known I was ready for you, but I ordered the quesadilla instead.

    Chili-Cheese Taco, I think I’m worthy now. Please be my lunch today. I look forward to hearing from you.

        While on the subject of fine cuisine, I would like to warn against Kraft’s stringcheese. It tastes like rubber.

        If a Lowes Foods is near you, the discerning string cheese connoisseur would do well to purchase their brand, as I insist my mom do when she goes grocery shopping. Food Not.A.Lion. Brand is not an acceptable replacement, although Trader Joe’s might be.

    My heavens clothespin jeebus! Is this yet another example of what is out there in the world of singles and online dating connections? I’m glad that I come from a (much) earlier generation.

    Mr. Eyebrows and I met at college and chatted (with perhaps a touch of flirting thrown in) in the classroom for a couple months before he asked me out. We still talk fondly about those days and the time it took. He was smitten right away, while I was cautious but intrigued, didn’t think he was my “type.” Turns out, he was! Our professor said she could see it all along, but enjoyed watching it blossom. She also told us a couple years later that she deliberately put us in opposite groups (it was a Humanities class), so that we would challenge each other in debates and presentations. Very sly! Ah, well, nostalgia is lovely. And put me down as a fan of old-fashioned romance!

      The epic* story of Mr. and Mrs. Taco:

      We first met through mutual friends in college (they noticed we were extremely similar (geeks) and tried to hook us up). After meeting it was “meh” at first sight. We wouldn’t give each other the time of day, really. Not that we disliked each other, we just didn’t really hit it off. Plus we lived on opposite sides of the state and long distance relationships via email are just hard to do.

      Fast forward 3 years. We meet again at the same friends’ wedding. We’re both in the wedding party and are forced to interact in all the planning. We both discover we share a passion for P&P gaming, video games, bad movies, etc. After a night of dancing and talking at their wedding, we figured we had each made a new friend and promised to meet up for some D&D later in the week with other mutual friends. I don’t think either of us really figured on a relationship at that point.

      Two days later my friends have liquored me up and convinced me to ask her over for a date and a bad movie (007: The World is Not Enough). We dated for about 4 months before she moved in, and 3 years later we got married.

      *This may not be true.

        Chalk this one up to Match.com and either stubbornness or laziness, I’m not sure which. I signed up for a free trial. I emailed about 13 guys (and about 10 more emailed me), went out for first dates with four, additional dates with two and he was the one I stuck with.

        Funny thing is, I emailed him just after his free trial was up and he wasn’t sure if I was real or a ploy to get him to pay for a subscription to be able to email back. He says I’m the best $13 he ever spent.

        It did take him 5 years, though, to decide that it wasn’t going to kill him to get married again. (And he’d been officially living with me for two of those years.)

        Is the “broken radiator” the same as “Darn, I ran out of gas” gambit?

        • 2010 July 6

          As it turns out, no. It’s the “holy clothespin jeebus, look at the amount of radiator fluid on the ground under my car!” gambit. That gambit apparently gets you about six extra hours* to hang around with your future wife and her college friends who insist on telling you embarrassing stories about her.

          Then, for some bizarre reason, you decide you want to date her anyway, even though she’s 3,000 miles away.

      ok, guess I should add mine.

      Mr. Dev and I met when we both worked in the same supermarket, I was what I think most of you would call a “floor walker” and he ran the booze section. He was often in the warehouse area, which I had to go through to get to the staff areas so we bumped into each other a lot.

      Despite being in his 20’s he’d for some reason decided I was fun to try to annoy, and often behaved like a 12 year old, trying to grab me and tickle me as I walked past etc (you know the kind of thing, if I’d had pig tails I’m sure he’d have pulled them) and since my usual reaction was to squeal and run away he found it hilarious.

      He then took to chasing me around every time I wandered through, and one day it suddenly occurred to me that I wasn’t at all sure why I was running away. So I let him catch me and simply stared him down and said “So? Now what?” and it frightened the life out of him.

      Oddly enough though, not long after that he finally asked me out. We’ve been together 16 years now.

      Thank you for sharing, Archie! Mrs. Grampdaddy and I met in high school, many, many years ago ( I graduated H.S. in ’68) during a musical. I was in the cast, Mrs. G. was on crew, and I was immediately smitten. We had a mutual friend who was playing matchmaker, and I think it took much more work for her with Mrs. G. than with me. Romance took quite a while, a couple of months (as you mentioned), and I was truly afraid to ask her out (The OMG, what if she says “No!” syndrome.) Grampmommy actually asked me out twice before I realized she REALLY did like me, and it wasn’t just sympathy. 42 years later, I still am not completely sure I know what happened, but I am still madly in love, and we still manage to make the children go ewwwwww even though none of them still live at home.

        Here, here! The moritifcation of our children in varying degrees and at various intervals during their formative years is crucial in the realm of parenting.

        And it is something to aim for, Manda. I am proud to say that I am carrying on a family tradition, as illustrated by a little story about Papa Eyebrows. My parents had been happily married 63 years when we lost my mom. A year or so later, my dad had started to “keep company” with a very nice widow who had been a friend of theirs for years. They decided to go on a cruise together, and I volunteered to drive them to the airport. While in the car, we were all chatting back and forth when she (now my step-mom) said something to dad and ended it with “Babe.” I managed to keep steering the car straight AND stifle a splutter. Let me tell you, you haven’t lived until you’ve heard your 87-year-old dad addressed as such. When I got home, Mr. Eyebrows and I agreed that that’s what we wanted…to call each other babe when we’re in our 80s and still have that secret smile that makes everyone wonder.

          Stop me if you’ve heard this one! 8) Chthulhu and I met on a BBS board chat room. The board ran a trivia game every night, and he and I competed to win, taking turns inadvertantly. I was also one of the few people who recognized his handle, so I got points there. But he was married, and he smoked, so I didn’t pursue. Then came a New Year’s Eve that I expected to spend cooking for the new man in my life, but that rat backed out at the last minute. Instead, I spent it on-line with Mike, talking and talking and laughing and laughing. We went out to lunch on January 3rd. On March 3rd, he left his wife (the marriage was failing long before I showed up) and moved in with me. Two years later, he got the divorce, and two months after that we were married. 8) He didn’t have much chance to run, and I don’t think he wanted to. To this day, I get cold chills when I think I almost said no to my perfect match over something stupid like smoking. The being married part we had discussed and I knew it was over. And he did stop smoking within a couple years of our getting together. 8)

        Steph – stories like all of the above show that despite all the idiocy (read sh*t) in the world that we all have to deal with, there are truly good and wonderful people out there and matches for everyone, in one form or another. Not to get all new age on you, but I had a very dear friend give me a great piece of advice a long time ago. She told me to travel the path the universe unveils ahead of me. Travel it with authority and conviction, but let go of trying to control what you can’t control. Everything happens on that journey for a reason. I was in my 20s when she told me that, and I didn’t understand it or start applying it until I gained age and (some) wisdom, and didn’t fully appreciate it until I was in my 50s. One of the best lessons I ever learned.

          I’m told by my wife that a black-belt in martial arts works the same way. Plus it’s almost impossible to detect until you have two broken arms.

          Just about everyone I’m related to can beat the crap out of me at will. My sister, her husband, my wife, and her brother are all black-belts, most of them 4th degree or better.

          In my wife’s words, “Don’t worry about being attacked in the ally there. As long as there aren’t any more than 5 of them and they only have knives we’ll be fine.”

          [additional safety corey] Numerous family members in more official capacities (i.e. law enforcement) confirm what your mom said is true. Wasp/hornet spray is better than pepper spray or mace for all the aforementioned reasons. Also, since it has a longer range there is less chance that you will incapacitate yourself at the same time as your attacker. Take it from me, pepper spray even inadvertently is NO fun. [end corey]

I inadvertently caused a breakup between a friend, and his girlfriend, who I have never met, and who lives in a different country – but that didn’t stop her from getting into his email and cyberpathically stalking/harassing me online (she was a depressive narcissist – probably still is a narcissist – so she is/was already predisposed to obnoxiousness). It was a somewhat different sort of stalking from what we’re discussing (had that, too, but benignly), but still rather horrifying.

          I don’t think of it as “mad with power,” I think of it as “enthusiasm for doing one’s job well.” So rare these days.

          The regular padding is fine if you don’t lean into it.

    Just so everyone is grossed out aware; Rainforest Cafe can be anagrammed to “I ran aft to feces.”

    I thought you’d all like to know that when I walked out of my class this evening into a very humid 86 degrees at 9:15 pm, my response was to say “sweet clothespin jeebus!” while shedding the sweater I was wearing because the AC inside made me cold.

      Ah but did anyone notice, or for that matter understand?

      I’m still trying to explain Cat Math to hubby, but with hindsight it’s not like I really understand it myself without my catculator, so perhaps I should just give up on that?

          I think yes. I would totally wear a sweet clothespin jeebus shirt.

    Dear all: Thank you for making me laugh so hard that I wept, nearly spilled my iced tea, and came dangerously close to leaving a wet spot in my computer chair. The brain chemicals that cause happiness are now at an all-time high. I love you all!*

      Yeah, this is where we all share those awkward half-hugs while not really looking at each other.

      As a side note, I would have a prettier icon if I could choose one. I know how to do it, but I simply can’t decide. Oh well! I may just be quilty forever.
