    "You know how street cred. Go ahead and ask that cut girl from your work out, "

    When he's drunk, he's either overly truthful or really in the mood to mess with people. I'm not sure which on this one, but I'm not overly worried by it. I don't know any cute girls in my office who are single and anywhere near my age bracket. So I'm leaning towards the messing-with-people option today.

    Except for the bag, I was missing one of my reusable bags.
    No, he meant cut girl. Join a gym and start boxing. This is just like Cheryl's old gypsy woman said!

    Single right now... but I also don't want "Miss Right Now" either. I'm thinking of Mikey in "Swingers" and that's definitely not who I want to be while looking for a girl.

    Yes, he was happily single, hanging out outside the local library afterhours for some free wi-fi, and baking banana bread for the office cutie.

    All the gold. There was him, and the infamous "stealing a gf" between posters, and of course the psycho/stolen helmet (forgot the details) incident.

    Thanks. In 2017, we started talking, and it just grew from there. She makes me happy... well, I've been happy for a while... so happier.

    The only downside with Jessica is she lives in Alaska, but we're committed to making this work.

    Sucks as someone without kids too. I swear in Mn I’d have better luck if I had kids- everyone else was married with kids long ago and at least single parents meet each other at kid stuff

    Woah, sorry to hear.

    I've all but given up on online dating in the past year. I think I need to look at volunteer opportunities or something. Or maybe just become an ascetic Buddhist.

    On the other hand, I find myself falling for my childhood best friend. A cis male, a couple years younger, and it sounds like he WOULD go out with me. And I have the benefit of him being local.
