I guess the last girl I really liked (well, still really like, but) was essentially the opposite of a manic pixie dreamgirl, if that makes sense. Is "depressed anxious awkward whimsical ghost flower girl" a stereotype?

Part of me thinks that things would have gone better if instead of me thinking "great, she's awkward, we can be awkward together," I tried to be the guy who let her have fun and broke her out of her shell. I can only imagine that's what her current guy is like. I mean, she gets enough depression on her own, right? Instead of looking for a guy to commiserate with, she probably needed a guy with whom all her anxiety seems to melt away.
Shoulda, coulda, woulda.

as a melancholy kinda goofball, i think you're onto something. lots of awkward girls out there to meet, though. some of them will even approach someone they're into.

I do find it a bit reassuring that out of all the people I've gone out with, the three I've really taken a liking to have completely distinct personalities from each other. It means that if things don't work out, I don't even have to look for somebody "like" them, because I guess there's more than one personality type that I'm drawn to.

So, if MPDG turns out to be synonymous with "borderline personality disorder," at least this won't be prescient of a string of doomed flings with crazy people. The flings will only be doomed because of my awkwardness.

srsly. to have a "type" is to be shallow, i think. none of the guys i've ever dated have looked similar in any way (except i've never dated anyone under 6'1" except for two exceptions) or been the same way around me. i guess personality-wise the only similarity would be is that i tend to find myself with more introverted guys who are a lot sillier in private. but maybe that's everyone. people less talkative than me make me more comfortable and so i'm likely to walk up to someone who isn't talking to anyone.

and mostly every guy i've dated either played guitar, was a drawer, or both. and not by design, it just happened to be.

Almost everybody I've been interested in has been an artist. Even if I didn't know she was an artist before I became interested.

Other than that, I haven't really had a physical type. They've been short, they've been tall. They've all had different styles, though they've all dressed well.

I bet that comes in really handy. With him by your side, you always have somewhere to put your stuff.

They got me to join in for "Feeling This" where the singer and I did the call and response vocal thing.

I was also wearing that Spectre of Communism ghost costume that I posted in the Halloween thread. The poster for the show said "$10 entry or $5 dressed up". When I showed the bouncer my costume he was like "Fuck it, I'll allow it", at first I thought he meant it was a stupid costume. I couldn't see anyone particularly dressed in costume, but I saw a lot of Hawaiian shirts and a guy in a coconut bikini. Turns out that the poster was referring to the Beach Party theme, so I was the only one in a non beach themed costume.

It was an all ages show with no bar, ironically all the adults were inside partying and not drinking, and all the kids were outside drinking where no-one is allowed to drink.

It was a fun night.

I guess my Halloween weekend was pretty fun, too.

On the Friday, I went to a friend's party. Was pretty fun, I dressed as obscure Batman villain Professor Pyg. The only person I expected to recognize the costume was my friend/the host, as I actually met her because she works at the comic-book store I frequent. But one of her other friends recognized it as well. I recognized her because we hung out once probably over a year ago, when I invited my friend to a metal show, and she brought her BF and this other friend. I'm supposed to have a date with my friend's friend sometime next week, which is cool.

On the Saturday night, I went to another one of those gothic/new wave dance nights, this one a Halloween theme. The idea of dancing in a latex mask didn't much appeal to me, so I just went as a mime instead. Met up with some friends, including a group of friends that I just made last time I was at this pub.

At this thing, I started talking to this girl in a Satan costume, making jokes about how she should pick a fight with my friend dressed as Jesus. Turns out I'd actually met this girl before. She was my mom's coworker, and I met her at a dinner party hosted by another coworker. My mom always told me that she could tell this girl had a crush on me, and would always ask about me. At the end of the night, before leaving, she found me, and asked me out. We're going to a gallery opening tomorrow. I think this is the first time I've been asked out, actually.

Did you try asking friends what they would be up to? What did they say?

The funny thing about having a date with that friend-of-a-friend is that she left the party somewhat early, and I actually felt like I hardly got a chance to talk to her much night. I just quickly asked for her number before she left, but she gave me her Snapchat instead. Usually when a chick gives me her social media instead of her phone number, it means that she isn't interested, so I'm surprised she seems eager to go out. I actually spent most of the night flirting with this other girl whose number I got, but the number turned out to be the wrong one. I don't think it was intentional, because she also put in her email and last name, and there's no reason to put in all that extra contact info if it's a fake number anyway.

At one point during the dance thing the following night, this woman approached me, saying she thought I seemed really cool. She kept on getting closer to me, making physical contact, while at the same time saying, "just so you know, I have a husband at home, so I'm not looking to hook up," even though I made no advances whatsoever at this point, didn't ask about that, and she was the one who seemed approached me, and seemed to be making advances. She asked me a few times where I lived, and if it was near there. She was there with her sister and her sister's wife, and she kept on telling me not to worry about her sister because "she's a little protective," but I got nothing but friendly vibes from her sister anyway, and at no point did the sister seem skeptical about me. The woman bought me a drink and asked me to a quieter part of the club to talk. We danced closer than I probably should have with a married woman, hands on thighs and hips and whatever, but I obviously didn't go further than that because was, you know, married. She talked about how much she loves her husband and how, for the first time in her life, she sees herself wanting to have children with somebody. Extra incentive not to do anything with this person that she'd later regret, if I didn't already have enough.

After the dance thing, I went to a friend's after party, and this woman dressed as Paul Stanley from kiss tagged along. She kept on going on and on and rambling, and I could tell she was on something. Turned out to be acid. When I mentioned how I worked early the next morning, she gave me half an acid tab and told me to take it mid-shift. Obviously, I wasn't going to do acid at work, but I'm not going to turn down free acid.

This not-quite-forty-year-old lady seemed to be pretty spacey, talking nonsense about vitamins and how she always has to wear some sort of glasses or visors because of "light pollution" and "extraterrestrial rays." But at one point of the night, I found myself sitting on her lap as she fed me popcorn. But then my bed was ready, so I slept.

I cumulatively got four hours of sleep that weekend, so I had to do a line of coke in the morning so I could function during my early shift the next day. The woman I was talking to mentioned having a bad coke habit, so I did her a favour and didn't mention that I had any.
