Feh. I find my lack of skill flirting kind of depressing. Well, actually, really depressing.

Since the initial phase of getting to know someone is so awkward for me it seems like I need some kind of repeated activity to build familiarity. Without having something calming that encourages frequent interaction, it's far too easy for me to feel overwhelmed by the awkwardness and to find it to hard to keep trying to talk.

So then there's the idea of trying to meet in some social activity. Unfortunately it needs to be something I'm willing to do. Even more frustratingly it should also be something where there's a reasonable chance of meeting queer women.

Sitting around coding, contemplating environmental issues in my apartment fails these criteria on several levels. My social activities are playing table top role playing games and board games, but even ignoring the smallness of the population that likes doing that I end up spending time with the same set of friends (who are all already coupled). If I was together I'd try to figure out some way of asking if there are other LGBT people while I'm attending strategicon this weekend.

Also on my list of other ways of forcing myself to interact with other people are playing everquest or going to a lesbian-themed vacation (e.g. olivia or camp real girls).

Though I feel like the lesbian vacations aren't long enough for me to get to know anyone and there wouldn't be anyone as remotely far gone on the geek/tech scale as me.

But mostly I've just been hiding and playing single person computer games and wasting money on things like the dell 2001fp.

Honey, I totally forgot that Monday's a holiday! I'm thinking of catching up on movies in Santa Monica - that and/or watching DVDs at my place with friends. I would love love love if you could hang out with me/us. Just a couple other people at most. Or just me. Either way, whether SM or my place, I would love love love to see you.

Oh, honey, I don't have a cell anymore. I couldn't make the payments. I have a home phone, but I can only sometimes make outgoing calls. It's weird. I'll email you my number. I assume that the caltech address still works?
