Last night I went out to dinner w/ this single parents meetup group--I have only gone out to 2 events so far and they were both dancing in bars, so you don't have that much chance to talk. So we went to this place near me--there is a marina and they have about 5 restaurants, all w/ outdoor seating & bars and then there are condo complexes further back--I haven't been there in quite a while. It's a really lively place on a summer weekend. We had a nice dinner--there were 15 people, of that there were 4 men, one of whom was there w/ his DW (they had met in this group).
So I was sitting near one end of the table talking to some nice women, there was an empty seat at the end of the table and the last person who came was one of the men, who was the most boring guy ever. He wasn't attractive but i wouldn't have cared if he was nice & could make good conversation--but he was really bragging about himself. He is a professional photographer and brought his big fancy camera to take pictures (usually the organizer just takes pics w/ her IPhone & posts them to the website) and he had to tell us that he had just come from shooting a model and he made this documentary that won an Emmy, blah, blah--it was like he was on a job interview. And of course since we were eating dinner, I couldn't move away and it would have been rude to ignore him. I was thinking of the bad date stories & how this guy must be on a date!
Of course there was one gorgeous guy there who was seated too far away from me to talk to him at dinner and then when most of us were going to the outdoor bar after, he went home--not that I would have had a chance w/ him, cause he looked much younger, but I kept glancing over. lol When he left one of the other women said "I wouldn't kick him out of bed for eating crackers" so I guess I wasn't the only one noticing him.
