From my gay male friends I have heard both sides of those encounters.   Somehow relatable even to cis straight people.  Awkwardness is universal maybe ?  At least to me...

There are some people I can't picture ever having an awkward moment.

Maybe some people maybe the sex is the awkward part.  For me, it's the easy part, and everything that happens prior to clothes coming off is awkwardness. Luckily she mad that part quite easy and fun.

How did she make the awkward part easy ?  I'm glad it's the talking part because as an awkward person that is what I am interested in.

She slid her glasses down her nose, looking over the rims while biting her lip and said, "Well, Miss Kimmy. Your library books are 2 weeks overdue. You've been a very bad girl."

Cut that out.

Plus, she's a real estate agent.  She probably only reads "Personal Power" by Anthony Robbins

In that case, she probably said, "let me show you how spacious the master bedroom is....and call me master."

I'm not sure if this is more cheesy or less cheesy than what actually happened.

How did she make the awkward part easy ?  I'm glad it's the talking part because as an awkward person that is what I am interested in.

So... she's a natural talker, as sales people often are.  Some people just have a gift for it.  I have tried to observe them and learn their ways, but it will just never come natural to me. Being assertively interested in the other person, or at least faking it. That sort of thing.  Another big part of it was her being confident and taking the steps that people are often nervous about taking.  When we got to the part of the evening where it was time to move along, she says "let's go back to my place" with seemingly no fear of rejection. She gave me the grand tour, and mixed drinks for us, and we talked more, and when it's again starting to feel like time to make a decision, she says "let's play strip poker!"  Which is silly and ridiculous, but also kind of genius. I lost quite badly, and had to perform "dares" to keep playing after I ran out of clothes, and we were both pretty riled up before she even ran out of clothes.  I think the most important thing she did was to confidently take the initiative at points where dates sometimes fizzle out (like the part where you've paid your tabs and aren't sure what next and somebody chickens out and says "wellll, I have to get up early tomorrow...")  She didn't let it get to those points.

Sorry to hear your interview was not a success.

 -k

So turns out I was wrong and they liked me... at least a little bit.  The only thing that makes sense is if they liked me because they are going to offer me 50K less to go work for them.  I think my utter obsequiousness by the end of this may have worked for me as in....

"This Michael guy must be at least a LITTLE smart to realize how much dumber he is than us...."

okaaaay.... so I am not getting renewed at my company... after saving the world over there.

At least they were nice about it. 

Now the interview I thought I bombed says they are putting together an offer.  Now I am starting to realize that I pretty much need 6 figures to live in this city.  And I have a 20-year old car.  I don't understand how people live here....

What a bunch of jerks!  >:(  If you need anybody's knees broken, just send me a PM.

So why?

I read an article recently about Millennials abandoning the biggest cities, in droves, to move to "second tier" cities that still offer most of the perks of living in New York or LA or San Francisco, without the exorbitant cost of living. People graduated from college and moved in with romantic ideas about these places, but after the excitement of living in a "prestige" city wore off, people found it wasn't as great as they imagined, and left.

I had this fight with the previous significant other many times. Obviously, Kim City isn't a "second tier" city, it's not even in the top ten tiers... but I have a job and a home and everything I need here, while she's struggling to make ends meet in Vancouver.    Why? What's so great about it?  I just don't see the point.

I had forgotten how exciting it can be to receive naughty text messages out of the blue.   ;D

Meh.  The company paid me well.  Now that I have succeeded they can't afford to keep me.

I am 50_50 on the city.  It's still fun for now.
