Dating Has Become A Joke

As I was sitting at the Grove on Mission last night, indulging in one of my guilty pleasures of eavesdropping, I heard the girl tell the guy “Gosh, this is like a part time job after a day job. For the past 1-2 years I have been going on dates every Tuesday and Thursday.” This was a Thursday, and they were obviously on one of those dates.  It was easy to tell that the guy has become very discouraged and kind of withdrew from the whole conversation from that point on.

The above incident was yet another reminder of how sad it is that thanks to online dating, going on dates turned from something relatively rare – something to be anxious and excited about and look forward to, to some kind of a joke or a chore – something that’s always available out there, when you are bored and have nothing better to do.


One reliable sign of SF Douche is that smirk that so many guys carry on their face, the smirk that says “I am the shit”. Just walk around downtown and it won’t take long for you to notice that smirk. Mickey Rourke played this part perfectly throughout “9 1/2 weeks”. The movie is older but the Douche smirk is as relevant today in SF as ever.

Word is that SFCunts like douchebags, and they consider this smirk to be an attractive sign of confidence. So if you are a guy in SF who is into cunt-hunting, you might as well put that smirk on your face, if it ain’t there yet.

This smirk particularly sticks out on American men’s faces when you travel overseas, because no one else really has that facial expression. This is one easy way to distinguish a local white guy downtown from a European tourist, even if they were to wear similar clothes – Europeans don’t have a smirk, unless they spend enough time here to “acclimate”.

You Don’t Need To Ever Say This

“I look younger than my age” – you should never say this. People are not blind. They can see what you look like and make that highly subjective determination on their own. They don’t need any help from you. And just imagine how ridiculous you would sound to them if they actually don’t think you look younger than your age.

Just Say “I Don’t”

I am so sick of asking people whether they speak a certain language, and them giving me a bs response – “I took it in high school”, or “I used to but I forgot most of it” or “I am trying to learn”. I didn’t ask about what they knew in the past, what they learned and what they are planning to learn. I am asking about the present ability to speak with no if’s and but’s.

Why is it so hard for people to say “I don’t”?
