I jokingly made that comment in response to someone asking if I felt I would get good service at such a young age. It wasn't meant to stroke my ego. But that you thought it was is telling about your own specific, and personal, experiences--and your own preconceived notions-- with snobby, pretentious kids.

Try wine tastings as an alternative to bars/clubs. Also non-profit events.

Try a dance class. If you're in college, your college should have a ballroom dance club, salsa club... You'll rotate partners and meet (and chat with) a lot of women in one evening. You might hit it off with someone. Just don't go to the local retirement home for your dance class; Conne will resent the competition.

Hang out in combination bookstore/coffee shops like Borders or Barnes and Noble. Notice what people are reading and you have instant conversation starter. You might even hang out in an area of your own interest and guess what? Women in the same area probably have a common interest. You can always break the ice with "Have you seen a copy of 'X' by 'Y'?" and go from there.

Volunteer for a cause that's important to you. Any woman in the same organization probably has at least one interest in common with you (surprise) and again, you have instant conversation starter. I wouldn't choose volunteer firefighting or playing chess, but if you pick something like animal rescue that resonates with women, you're probably golden.

It's all about placing yourself where the women are and making it easy to start a conversation.

About the dance club thing. Don't come off strong, a lot of women I hear hate when guys try to chat them up there. It's like totally platonic type of shit.

Totally depends on the crowd. IME people at salsa classes seem to be much more open to socializing. There are several couples at the dance studio where I do swing dancing who met on the dance floor. The clubs will also have dances that are open to the general public and offer an opportunity to meet even more people (and be more social).

I'm pretty happy my girlfriend knows about the allegory of the cave. Its not exactly obscure.

It's not exactly illuminated either, I mean there are all these shadows moving on the walls and stuff.

I've seen girls at central park, on the subway, at Bobst, at a random sandwich shop, Canal Street, the elevator. They're everywhere, you don't have to go to bars.

But yeah, I agree with you, haven't met any good ones. The interesting ones are too old. Concentrate on career now, I guess.

alright. fyi most straight bros dont consider going ghey because they haven't found the right girl. or think about the tall, blonde, German DUDE they saw in Soho at 3am. just saying, you may be missing something here. one of my closest friends in college was in the closet until many years after school. i was glad for him when he finally became comfortable with it are you in school? if so you should meet people there, it's the best time/place for it. if not, try the big name dating sites? one of my friends met some high quality chicks there. also you are like 20 but have the posting demeanor of a 60 yo woman. just sayin

I hate the way the word pretentious in our generation and in our culture has now become a euphemism for = shit I know nothing about. That's not what the word means. Use it correctly.

Pretentious means attempting to impress by affecting greater importance, talent, culture, etc., than is actually possessed. It means pretending to know or are capable of things that you are not.

These days having a discussion about anything that isn't associated with low-brow culture automatically gets labeled as pretentious. "Oh he's pretentious, he's discussing world history, politics or physics, he's not talking about Hangover 2". No shitbird, if the person in question is discussing any of those topics and is pretending to know MORE about the topic than he actually knows then he's pretentious, but simply discussing the topic doesn't make him pretentious. You could be pretentious discussing car parts, Oprah, wrestling, anything under the fucking sun. It's funny how college kids (usually of the liberal middle to upper class stripe) will rail and pound the floor about the anti-intellectual nature of American political discourse, specifically anything on the right, but talk about Kafka or Stravinsky to this person and " ooooh you're pretentious".
