This topic was inspired by my night out on the town Saturday. I decided to hit up the bar and “club” scene, with really no agenda/expectations other than to have fun and be social. It’s been at least three months since I’ve been out. The club scene is now an acquired taste for me these days. The idea of hanging out in a room full of people on the prowl while my clothes and hair reek of smoke; just isn’t fun to me any more. But last night, I figure what the hell.
So my girl and I are out having a freaking blast. Despite the fact that this spot was actually wack, we had a great time. Dancing is truly a great workout! So naturally, while out you began to meet different guys (the urban speed dating). The caliber of men in a club never ceases to amaze. The idea of meeting the love of your life in a club is about as realist as Prince Charming arriving at your doorstep on a horse to take you away.
But I do believe in “creating” an environment that can be your social playground. There are certain places I utilize to meet new people during the day. Granted neither methods are fool proof. I do believe you have a better chance of meeting quality people during the day at places you love to go. Two of my favorites are Barnes & Nobles and Starbucks. My objective is to simply meet well-rounded people (mainly men). But before any person prepares to set out on a social adventure to wherever, it’s important to understand and have the ability to identify the various types of men and women we’re exposed to daily.
I came up with my own names for the different types of people there are in this game we call DATING. The ultimate meeting and greeting. I’ll start with the ladies.
The Gerber Baby:
She’s the needy type.
Every man that enters her life has a huge chance of being the “one”.
She often finds herself easily attached to any man no matter the reality of the situation.
She’s always looking for approval and self-validation through others.
The addiction to the dick is similar to a baby and its mother’s nipple.
This is a nice word for ho or whore.
She believes in letting anyone test-drive the vehicle before making a copy of the driver’s license.
She considers her sexuality to be a hot commodity.
She’s the girl that just wants to have “fun” while partaking in self-destructive activities.
The Lottery Player:
Also known as a gold digger.
She’s looking for that lifetime sponsorship or the chance to hit the jackpot.
She often has a cover to camouflage her ultimate purpose of choosing certain men.
Like the sampler she considers her looks/body as a sufficient prerequisite for catching a baller.
Her philology is quite simple “Pay like you weigh!”
The Knock off:
Her tendency to be overly dramatic or a drama queen encourages the need to be fake.
She’s the perfect façade.
She’s quick to make enemies before anyone exposes her insecurities.
Keeping up with the Jones is a lifestyle by any means necessary.
She’s the woman who’s reached her level of balance.
She’s confident enough to let her actions/behaviors do the talking for her.
People naturally gravitate towards her, for being nothing but her.
She maintains her level of faith through all of life’s trials and tribulations.
My take on the Men:
He’s the player the “alpha” dog.
He’s very sure of himself and usually sees a lot of women for the purpose of giving himself validation.
He considers his gift of gab to be a part of his charm.
He has a huge problem with commitment especially the ones that don’t ultimately benefit him.
There’s always some element of drama lurking around this guy, mainly due to his own bullshit.
He’s the guy most of us never notice.
He’s okay with just being there and not necessarily being seen.
He’s the ultimate introvert in order to reduce the chances of conflicts or drama.
This guy could be the prefect guy, but the world just doesn’t know it yet.
He has a few perks, but a lot of cons like his roughness hence the term sandpaper.
His sex is usually amazing, which leaves a lot of women feening for more and accepting his behavior.
He’s as trustworthy as a thief in the night, yet women love his edge and his street swagger.
The fact that he’s such a HUGE liability leaves this type undesirable for a smart woman.
He’s the perfect type for a one-time fling.
He’s always ready to help any damsel in distress.
He uses his wallet to over compensate for his shortcoming.
Giving provides him a sense of being needed and wanted.
He’s typically involved with younger women.
This is the guy who’s on the constant pursuit to greatness and expects the same in his partner.
He’s into living life in the best way and has zero tolerance for bullshit.
He’s focused and also believes his actions speak louder than his words.
Only a deserving woman will be placed in a situation to where you meet your top shelf.
