Late Boyfriend Info

So anyway, last night I was invited by a friend to a July 4th BBQ party. Twas one of those things out here where someone opened up their house to a bunch of people. It was high up and there was a deck with a pretty coolio view so you could see fireworks going off in different parts of the city across the skyline. It looked cool but something about it looked like fake. Like someone with a fireworks program was dropping them here and there on this photoshopped cityscape. Alot of this city looks like a movie backdrop. Maybe I'm just not used to seeing things off in the distance...

Anyway, I'm at this party trying to not spill/break anything or say something accidentally offensive or stupid nor expose myself as being uncomfortable while concentrating on not slouching. I'm sort of hanging out in the corner by the grill trying to make friends by offering to cook food that isn't mine. (This was later at the party when grill sort of got abandoned and stuff). And this girl came up and asked what was cooking.

We started chatting about stuff and she seemed nice or whatever. An actress girl or something. I told her that I was staying in town out in Culver City. And that I left my dog behind in Brooklyn. Told her about my big debate about flying my dog. She was a dog person too. I started thinking it was going well and she had nice boobs and stuff. I didn't think she wanted to actually make out or anything but she seemed to be flirty and it was nice to think about. We were chatting for like 20 minutes and I asked her how she ended up at the party

... she told me she was here with her boyfriend. He was over there.

I was like, 'Oh! That's cool....' (for you). But I just felt like there should have been an earlier heads up to the boyfriend thing. Like it should go out within the first 10 minutes of conversation at a party. Especially if the guy is like right over there. Just so there's a context in our conversation. That context being 'You're not gonna get to squeeze my boobs never ever so don't even think about it because my boyfriend is over there and he'll punch you in the eyeball' type context.

Whatever. She was nice and it was nice to have a nice conversation and I would have talked to her anyway of course because I'm nice... but maybe throw out that piece of information a little sooner? Just so I know where I stand... (which was being the slouchy gork standing by the grill entertaining some guys girlfriend).

ok bye!


PS. The pictures of the guy on the tarmac were not 'dead guy' pictures. I did see him move when the paramedic lady came over.

PPPS. Here's a weird thing about a bee thing. Here.

Odd, when I was reading this story, I could picture the animated version of it.

More importantly, don't discount the girls with 'late boyfriend info'! Sure, she had nice boobs AND a boyfriend, but maybe she was scouting out guys for her single friends with better boobs!?!

Dear ladies: Unless you are single, don't strike up conversations with men who are probably single. We really don't care what you have to say about much of anything, and you're keeping us from meeting unattached women.

If you want conversation, kindly speak to the man you sleep with. Along with the joy of sleeping with you comes the responsibility of talking extensively with you.

Todd, Todd, Todd...didn't anyone ever tell you about girls being like parking spaces?

All the good ones are taken and the rest are handicapped.

If a girl looks good and is nice and friendly, forget about it...she's probably 'taken' since like high school.

I agree with tODD a girl does not have to blurt that she has a boyfriend but should work it into the conversation it is easy enough to do especilly if the guy is at the party

Why can't conversation be just that, conversation? Does there always have to be some kind of intent involved? Always some kind of subtext?

And, if she had mentioned her boyfriend right off the bat - would she have been perceived as full of herself? Someone who defines herself by her relationships?

Plus, what if her boyfriend turned out to be one of those industry types and turned out to be a good contact?

women should have tattoos on their forehead stating if they're single, married, or dating someone.

Friggen love this post as I can totally relate. I'm married now I'm not that comfortable talking to even my wife's friends.

also dug the part about not wanting anyone to notice you're uncomfortable and all. I get a big case of that at times, even if I realize I'm probably not the only one there in that boat.

I have amazing boobies and I would let you do just about anything you wanted to them, Todd.

Yeah, I dig you that much.

PS: I am going anonymous because you would be shocked to know who I am.

Yeah, she should've thrown in THAT tidbit much sooner. Like you said, not that you wouldn't have chatted with her but, um, yeah. lol.

Bullcrud you would have talked to her anyway...liar! LOL.

Todd as soon as she told you that you would have been fixated on the boyfriend, all worried he was just about to come over and pound you...and if he moved closer you would have been all "Oh I need to focus on the food, I am burning it...nice chatting with you girl who I don't get to touch."

Man guys are so lame. lol

What a bunch of losers...a girl is a tease because she strikes up a conversation with the lonely goofball minding the grill. What a load of crud. She is a "nice" person being friendly and talk to a guy about his left behind dog.

So Todd, if she hadn't come up to would have what...had a long meaningful conversation with the BBQ Chicken Breast (see I am nice i could have had a whole bit on hotdogs but I didn't...cuz I a nice. lol) and then gotten to touch it afterward?

consider yourself lucky, a nice girl talked to you and maybe she does know other people besides her boyfriend...that is how you meet people and enjoy a summer in a strange land. Be enjoyable, nice and not pathetically hoping to get into every girls pants...cuz then you might get into one.,,or even two before the end of the summer.

Todd is as guilty, no MORE guilty of what he's accused that chick of. Me thinks he shouldn't be throwing no stones at nobody.

Todd, just stay cool, be yourself, treat 'em nicely and always remember that line from the first (and best) Star Wars-movie: "Stay on target!"

Something will come up...

Helloooo, maybe she is not really into her boyfriend anymore and would totally leave him if she had the opportunity with a nice hot dude like yourself.
