Are bars good for meeting people?

I have been arguing debating with my friend Jeff about whether or not bars and clubs are good places to pick up women. Jeff is a little high strung (sorry bud, it’s true!) so of course he scoffs at the idea of meeting quality women at bars. I, on the other hand, have met the most raging, offensive jerks at networking events and ummm church. So I don’t believe that bars are all that bad if you want to meet someone nice.

The last time I was at a Happy Hour I met a really great guy. I was out celebrating a promotion, not even really looking to meet anyone at all. Then a guy that was next to me struck up a conversation and it was instant sparks – totally unexpected.

When we went on our first date, he actually said, “I did not expect to meet someone of your caliber at a bar!”. Just goes to show you that we have to drop some of our old ways of thinking. There are very few places you can’t meet someone nice. I mean, other then funerals and family reunions, what place is not a good location to meet someone cool!?

Have you had good experiences meeting someone at a club or a bar? Would you be open to meeting someone there if your prior experiences were negative?

I am curious, where is the strangest place you met and flirted with someone?
I would have to say, Interstate 285. That’s right, living in a city that has bumper to bumper traffic can be a blessing and a curse!

2C?
Disco can cook so there is salvage value there! :lol:

As for Slim,I don’t know. She has said squat bout cooking and yet these are festive,eats times.

When a lady loves her liqour and she getting into them middle and late 30s,it’s worrisome.

Fun,humorous girl but I’m sending the jury over there to check!

2C – my 24 hours isn’t up yet. if you recall yesterday I said I had 24 hours to determine if I was going to cook or not.

ex – I also doctor up my cabbage. if it makes you feel better I leave my lettuce alone.

SC – I need to find a good happy hour spot. lol.

Exiled – Unless the greens are mighty tough(which then I will pass over anyway), I don’t cook mine longer than about 30 minutes. I don’t like for them to disenigrate into slippery nothing and they still have some nutrients. That’s another thing mom taught me. Good-tasting soul food that won’t kill you!!

Durty – Even if you’re not drinking, as long as you are cutting up and clowning it’s all good!!LOL!!

kimmie – you go girl with your neckbone having self. it does sound good though. a while back a friend and I stopped in the grocery store and got some fatback. the little girl at checkout (high school aged) had no idea what it was. she’s asking the other girl what it is and the other chick was like “I don’t know. some kind of fish?” I’m standing there laughing so hard I couldn’t even school the poor kids. they were serious though. they were studying on that pack of fatback. lol.

2C / ex – hole up (yes hole – not hold). salvage value? lol. really? I let it slide the first time but 2C brought it back. salvage makes it sound like y’all scooping me up at the junkyard and just gone knock the rust off and run me under the faucet. really? that’s messed up. I thought we were better than that. smdh.

2C – dang. that don’t sound much better either. so what you really saying is that time and time again you’ve been “too through with me”. again, that’s messed up. I may tell you to sit down somewhere or later for you but I’ve never said I wasn’t effing with you no more. boy if I were sensitive I’d be reduced to blog tears.

I ain’t been able to jump in today like I wanted, and this ain’t got nuthin to do with anything posted so far, but I’ll post it anyway. There’s this coworker, see, takes a dump at least once per day here at work. I never counted, but I would guess, at least, once per day. Anyway, I go in, and here he comes, out of the stall, after he just stunk up the joint. Fixin up his clothes, un-wrinkling his pants, tuckin his shirt in, zippin up, fastening his belt…in the mirror, in the middle of the men’s room. Caint do all that sh!t in the stall, just HAD to come out and stand in front of the mirror. Hell. At least he washes his hands, though, that’s good. But that’s about all the good I can say about him. Fat, obese, overweight, stankin, fugga. Show some respect. We now return you to our regularly scheduled programming.
