meat and your sex drive...

Has anyone heard the ridiculous claim that people who don't eat meat have a lower sex drive than those who do eat meat because there's something in meat that revs up the ol' sex drive?  I've heard this one a couple times and it makes me so angry!  >:(  Like people need meat to be "normal" or something.  Argh!

Wow...I had that same date only it broke my head and I had to drink alot to make up for the fact that I agreed to go on the date in the first place...I know that sounds judgemental, but I need to be stimulated cerebally by those I choose to hang/ date/whatever with. Don;t get me wrong,  I love just laughing and doing stupid stuff with my friends, but it is important for me to know that the "new person" in my life has a brain too, and if they don't show it with in a 3 hour date it is adios to them! I guess what I'm trying to say is that I would rather be home watching "Friends" reruns then on a date with some guy who thinks Maden 2000 is the best thing since sliced bread...*erg*

Wow... Ithink it is becoming abunditly clear why I am still single...hmmmm...maybe I need to work on my people skills...

Seriously ladies, it is SLIM pickings up here in Ann Arbor...plus at least half of the guys are gay so right away I'm screwed!

Or rather, not.... :D OK, I shouldn't have posted that, but you were the one who brought up batteries... ;D

Yes, sometimes a date is just a date, but after a while you do pine for something with a little more depth to it. I had the same problem and it all came together for me when I threw up my hands and said "I quit." (I did move to another country, maybe I just didn't fit in in the US.) But maybe actively not-looking was what gave me the push I needed...or at least maybe I stopped seeming too desperate for a relationship. I don't know.

hmm... i guess i have never been too ridiculously put off by any characters, not that i go on too many dates anyway (ok fine, barely any..) but really i can appreciate pretty much anyone for something. i have a lot of different aspects to my life so if i can't find anything at all pleasurable to talk about that is the anomaly. maybe it is where i live? i kind of doubt that.. maybe it just happens to be the people i ahng out with and meet?
really, i can appreciate just about everyone for something. if i can't i am probably just not looking very hard or letting 'first impression' kind of stuff get to me. just because tey are not the person for me doesn't mean they have no value as someone to hang out with ever, right?

hmm, well if all the guys youre meeting dont have anything to interest/offer you Capture...maybe you need to try to branch out into different circles of people you associate with

everytime I hit a rut in meeting new girls I like to do that and it can help lead to just new friends as well

Yeah...that is a good idea Adam, I just don't know where a new good place to look is. Where I live (Ann Arbor-Ypsilanti) is all campus area, so it's all bars and cafe's and book stores. Once you leave the area you either hit county or go towards Detroit, which is not a place I go to often as I am terriffied to drive on expressways...I know so sad...but we have really crappy roads and just awful drivers!

blarg, I think I'm going to just let things take their own course, I am going to be a believer in destiny and see where it takes me (in to the arms of some fine man perhaps???) I was hoping to find a vegetarian support group up here to meet new people, but since (shockingly) there are non...I guess I'll just hang out and wait for the "next big thing" Unless of course you're free Adamcrisis! *giggles*

hah, you missed me by a month as my band played shows in Grand Rapids and Muskegon (interesting place, strange kids) in June

i guess im spoiled by san diego and the fact thats its just a giant town with more people moving in every day. Although ann arbor being a college town Id imagine theres new faces every year as well.

Both my folsk grew up in Ann Arbor and by the way they present that town, Id imagine its overflowing with free thinking young vegan radicals....but maybe not?

It's mostly overflowing with your, arrogant, rich kids who think they own the world becasue they go to U of M. I really dislike the campus kids! And unfortunatly, while ann Arbor seems really liberal it's actually very conserative...it's ust not like what it used to be  :-\ but that's OK, beause I still love A2.

Ahh That sucks that I missed you! Let me know the next time you are in Michigan and I'll make it out to one of your shows!!! You guys should come to A2 and play at some of the awesome venues up here! There's always the infamous Blind Pig, it's kind of a hole, but a lot of famouse bands have come through there!

California is the same way. Everyone thinks its still this bastion of different thinking people...but its really just closed minded scared unfriendly people (generalization of course). This states a joke in alot of ways

we'll be back next year, if it was up to me Id still be on the road and never coming home, but then thats me. divey hole in the walls is my forte. graffitti in the club and drinking back stage while the kids wait for the show is what I love

Now what have been telling everyone about Arcata in Humboldt County.  Sheesh!

capture - If you think about tree-hugging, veggie-crunching liberals, think the North Coast.  adamcrisis is just jaded because his reference point is San Diego, which sucks ass along with the rest of SoCal.  :P

This thread is making me chuckle...being born and raised in the Midwest, where people use "it's different" as an insult, anyone from California was considered to be stupid, out of touch and an air-head (wow, talk of pots and kettles! ;D) A certain type of giggly teen was always referred to as a "California girl." A friend of mine from Boston asked what that meant and was told, "Legs up to her neck, and no brain above it." Anything wierd (to a midwesterner that means anything they and their ancestors haven't done for 3 generations) *had* to come from the West Coast!

I've consciously tried to rid myself of these generational biases (which of course have no basis in reality!) but whenever I meet someone from CA I am automatically on my guard, even still. Old vices die hard, but I am working on it!  ;D ;D

hh!  don't be so norcal elitist!  it's one state afterall.  no matter how many times you guys try and vote on it.  ;)
i'm one of the scared, unfriendly, sucky, stupid people in sd, too.  ;D  (hey adam & hespedal).  i agree- horrible place for dating, but the weather's nice so at least there are alternatives. 
the older i get, the more i appreciate that.  (jeeze.  maybe we are jaded down here.  :-\  i didn't think we had the emotional depth for that.)

My best advice is to do what you like.  You will find others doing the same thing be it hanging out at a library, park, animal shelter or health food store.  Be open to making friends because that widens your circle of acquaintances to call on for new things to do and friends of friends to date.

Personally, I met my hubby online, playing Ultima Online.  Don't discount doing what you enjoy because people don't meet others that way.  They do!

note to self...don't more to SD!!  ;) ;D ;D ;D too hot for the puppy anyways  :P

on a followup note, the "date" went well. got good food and played on the toys in the park. there is another "event" planned for tomorrow. well, not planned, but it's in the works. what's fun to do with someone?

  ::)  ::)  ::)

Okay, I'll behave.  Good news.  I'm happy to hear the date went well.  I think it's easier to talk more openly when I'm doing something but not somewhere where there are so many people I feel guarded.  I know you don't want to repeat the park, but do you have paddleboats?  A hike with a packed lunch?  A raunchy art exhibit?

As for SoCal.  I live in SoCal.  From my experience, 99.73% of the population here think California's northern border is Marin county (the Bay Area).  The only people who know Humboldt are the pot smokers (it's grown in abundance there).  The only placed more screwed up than SoCal is the Central Valley, but even then Fresno is nicer than a lot of SoCal cities.

Raunchy art exhibit...*tee hee hee*

Baypuppy! I am so glad the date went so well, and you on for a second! That is great news! Oh yes! You guys should try paddle boating if you hve that as an option, it really can be very fun and it is also active so you can skip the gym that day  ;)

Have fun! And try to get in to trouble!

for the record, let me point out that SD is vastly superior to LA (as far as socal goes), and Orange County might just be the most horrible place in the world

while the hippies up in Northern California might be way more liberal,(although, most hippies I tend to meet are very unfriendly...especially the older ones....once again Im genralizing) The state asd a whole is conservative, in most of its laws (we havent had a democratic governor in awhile if Im correct) The bay area is pretty cool in most places, and SF is just amazing

san diego is just like any big city, theres plenty to do, and plenty of really good amazing people and places...you just have to find em. SD is amazing, and while the beach is pretty cool, i despise most of the beach towns and people who live their. The area I fell in love with is just outside the downtown...and while the yuppies are ruining it slowly with their condos and big coporate stores taking over where small buisiness used to be...I wouldnt want to live anywhere else right now

and to get back to the topic....my dry spell is over

:) baypuppy, you... it's good to know people are (or will be) getting some. 

I wonder if all of this dry spell breaking is 7-7-07 related?  :o
