No Making Babies?

In order to prove that I haven't totally changed from the guy I was in my other blog, I'm gonna write about the following right now.

I was talking to a 2L chica today about how many people in law school are married and are even starting to make babies. It made me think about a lot of things. For instance, how hot she was.

That's a little joke, even if it is true.

Anyway, it made me wonder. How is it that I seem to have missed this whole game that all the rest of the United States seems to have no problem playing? This isn't a question of why can't I get laid or why is it so hard to get dates. It's a lot broader than that.

How is it that I've lived for 26 years and never had anything even resembling a significant other? It isn't like I'm afraid of girls. I don't spend all my time locked in my room. I'm a remarkably pleasant and outgoing individual. I have many leather-bound books and my house smells of rich mahogany.

It just doesn't make sense to me.

When my roommate and I go to bars (sidenote: I call myself NJ on here. I think I will call my roommate J-Rock for anonymity purposes), I am an absolute king of the meet-n-greet. I have some sort of miracle skill in breaking the original ice-wall. And yet, by the end of the night, if either of us has a phone number, it is almost certainly going to be J-Rock. And this isn't even a complaint in his part of the events. As often as not, there are usually at least two girls in the mix of things. Still nothing.

I just don't get it. I've had one honest-to-goodness relationship in my entire life, and that lasted for only about 2 and 1/2 months.

But what the hell. There's really no point in complaining about it at this point. I'm 26. I don't really plan on changing my personality at this point. I'll continue making friends with attractive, unavailable women, maintaining standards that are well above my own level, and quietly bemoaning my lack of options.

Because that's what I do.

Seriously, though, is there not a single attractive, incredibly outgoing girl out there who isn't being hung upon by eighty guys and is attracted to mildly overweight guys who have interests in many random things?


Damn. Bummer.

Who did you date for 2 and a half months, am I just totally blanking here or did I not know about this?

That was Natalie after frosh year of college.

Though the fact that you don't remember me ever having any date is comforting.

Just kidding.

My bad...I think you just never told me about her which is very unfair given my love for gossip.
