Single In The City

I am having a lovely time in Los Angeles.  Highlights so far include delicious margaritas in Los Feliz and a long walk on Hollywood Boulevard.   Today I am heading to Disneyland and California Adventure, with an old great friend of mine from a million years ago.

It turns out that about half of the teachers I was at the conference with have gone through a break-up recently.  It made for a fantastic happy hour talk over probably, too many margaritas.  We talked about dating in our respective hometowns (Boston, Seattle, New York, Paris) and how difficult it can be to meet a man if you work in a female dominated profession like teaching and what options there are for meeting folks if you are reluctant to date online.  One woman suggested meetup.com and finding a group to join that shares a hobby with you like rock climbing or gaming or foreign language conversation. 

To that, an Irish teacher, currently living in Boston replied, “I don’t want to become a rock climber.  Why is it that the women always have to take on a new sport?  Why can’t any of the fellas just join up with the Stitch’N’Bitch?”.
