mood: angst, angst and more angst (while avoiding work)

I spoke with the woman who I'm most recently interested in, it sounds like she's currently interested in someone else. As usual I probably fail the sufficiently physically "attractive" test.

Why can't I be happy with people who are friends, my life would be so much better than with this angsting over wanting to date.

Not to mention I think my odds are exceedingly poor, data suggests few people I think are attractive reciprocate the opinion. Not to mention my rather intense political and environmental views which put me strongly at odds with most of american society (and if you want to form close attachments it's nice to have people who can at least respect your point of view).

It might help if I was more confident and didn't wander around thinking that I was crazy. Of course being certain of ones correctness can all too easily lead to a rather irritating arrogance and self-righteousness. (A state I have manage to unfortunately achieve on occasion.)

Having similar views, I know how you feel. That's why I'm reluctant to join the dating scene. I just sit here waiting for something to happen, but it never does. :)

I even try to meet people, but rarely find ones I feel comfortable enough to start opening up to. I'm currently wondering if my best chances are some of the queer undergrads at Caltech, that just requires me getting over my worries about dating someone 10 years younger than me.

It's such a harsh standard, attractive, intellectually interesting, queer woman, whose emotionally stable and lives within biking or walking distance.

I actually considered using one of the online matchmaking services, but I have rather specific standards, as well, so it would be like throwing money to the wind.

All we can do is never give up, keep hoping and searching. It will make it all that more valuable when we do find someone....
