Capitalizing on Loneliness

The newest in turning loneliness into business are the so-called lifestyle communities – companies that try to “connect” “interesting” people locally or globally for networking events, dinners, happy hours, etc.  Asmallworld and Ivy University are the two that have been most heavily advertised lately, especially in Facebook.

I very much appreciate and admire the idea, but the reason for their emergence is so damn sad. I also can’t help but laugh at their suggestion that you will make friends for life. I seriously doubt that forced, artificial social situation give birth to real friendship all too often. I hope I am wrong as I do with these types of companies the best of luck, and … maybe it’s the beginning of some type of new movement.

The selection of a photo for Asmallworld’s promotional posting on Facebook is soooo good at encapsulating the essence SF douche / cunt scene.

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”.
