Where the hell are the cool, good, sociable, (black) men?
Contrary to popular belief, the independent women I spoke of in an earlier entry are probably not looking to get married tomorrow, so no worries; this isn’t the immediate thought behind the question. Like you, we are often just looking for some good company, good conversation, and other good stuff (use your imagination).
When I ask my male friends this question, they all say the same thing: “There are plenty of good guys out there.”
So where the hell is “out there”? Like, where do yall chill? When I go out for a night on the town with my friends, unless we are at a fraternity sponsored event, there is often a lack of male presence. What do you guys do on Saturday nights? What about just for fun on any given day? Put me on. It would be nice to see some of you out for a social night in ::insert your city here::. Heaven knows those dudes in jerseys and oversized white tees are just not cutting it.
I’m going venture a few answers to my own question:
Men just don’t exist in the same numbers that we do.
It looks like women out number men across the board. I think it has something to with chromosomes and odds, or something like that.
Men roll in packs of 2 at time.
Women seem to go out in groups of 3 or better. Maybe we don’t see you out because our view is blocked by the large group of c*ckblocking friends we roll with.
Guys do different stuff.
Women go out for dinner together. We get our hair and nails done together. We shop together. And whilst out, we see other groups of women doing the same thing. But you don’t (usually) see groups of guys frolicking through the mall carrying large shopping bags, or going to the barber shop in groups to get that fresh line up. Maybe you all stay at home watching SportsCenter on your enormous plasma TVs. Or playing Xbox. So there goes that option.
Since women don’t usually take to sports that well…
If the cool men are at sports bars/lounges, we probably won’t run into each other there.
Okay, so I’m all out. I just want to know where guys hang out…pause. Ladies, are we missing something? Fellas, what’s the story?
