If you’re lucky you have a Cheers. I do. My weekly bar where the bartenders are like brothers. I love my bar. Tandy started out being a regular with me. We have Jesus dressed up like Don Johnson. Dred guy that can sing the fuck outta some Korn along with his Barbie looking girlfriend who is one of the sweetest bar girls I know.
My bar however is cursed. I have never had a successful date there. Or one that turned out to be successful.
Guy 1: I was really into TJ. We chatted for weeks. All day, everyday. He was cute. He was successful. He was my age. After three weeks of chatting, he met me at my bar. At about 1 A.M. (He was a gum smacker though). He walked me outside and we ended up making out like crazy. He really is a terrific kisser. We ended up screwing in the backseat of my car like teenagers. Laughed like hell about it, texted until 4 AM. Then, he disappeared.
Guy 2: Guy 2, who I can’t even give a fake name because I don’t even remember his real name, was recently divorced and quite a few years younger. Everything I said, he compared to his ex-wife. For example, I mentioned I had a 125 pairs of shoes. He immediately said his wife had 130. It bordered on obsessive. The only saving grace to this date was it was made about 30 minutes into chatting. No wasted time.
Guy 3: Guy 3 was nice, but not much personality. He turned his nose up at my bar. But alcohol makes anyone more interesting. I went home with him. He was trying with me, I will give him that. Offered me use of his condo in Florida and season tickets for baseball season (months away). I saw why. Size is of course not the only thing that matters. Skill does make a big difference. And attitude. It wasn’t the fact that the condom was too big that was a huge turn off. It was the “Please, more gently” as I was blowing him. I will give it to guy number 3 though. He does still keep in touch. It is to complain about everything in his life but he does keep in touch.
Cursed bar girlfriends but I won’t dump it. However, the embarrassment of bringing so many different guys so many weeks in a row has caused me to take a break.
Blog lesson for this Sunday: Bringing a date to your home bar is the same as bringing someone home to meet your family. Don’t do it until you’re comfortable enough to bring them around Uncle Harold who has no teeth and mashed potatoes are hanging off his chin. And to my own personal Sam and Woody…… Love ya’ll
