I’m experimenting with trying to meet men in the “real” world. I’m inserting myself into places where gobs of possible potential suitors gather. Today I entered the Land of Testosterone.
“Where is that?” you ask.
A professional football game.
A friend had an extra ticket so I attended our local team’s game. I thought this would give me an opportunity to be surrounded by enthusiastic men. I was right. But it was not quite what I’d hoped for.
Looking around, I assessed potential flirting prospects. I think the vendors must have been selling testosterone-infused beer. The men I observed were fervently cheering our team and vociferously booing the opposition. (To be fair, the women were too.)
The young men around me were taking turns using binoculars to inspect the cheerleaders — who were only 20 feet in front of us. Even with the football players at our end of the field, these voyeurs were more engrossed in scrutinizing the gals’ body parts than in watching the plays.
I found myself joining in the oglefest — but my focus was on a fine stud muffin who hovered near the gaggle of cheerleaders by a media video-viewing station. It was unclear what he was doing there, but he had the appropriate credentials to get past security. So when the game got boring, I entertained myself by imaging how I could meet him. After all, he was 25-feet into the secure zone. How would I just bump into him?
But no amount of mental telepathy could get him to saunter up to my third-row seat. I considered calling him over, but I thought that would appear just too desperate. So instead, I just enjoyed the eye candy, but unlike my teenage male row-mates, I didn’t use my binoculars.
So I am not having great luck meeting men in places they gather en masse. But I will not give up! I may try Hunter’s suggestion of car swap meets and car shows. And I may even try NASCAR or boxing — if I get desperate!
