Thread inspired by a girl I met last night. I'm wondering if any of you have had this type of experience also.
No way would I go out with this one. I know, that statement sounds so shallow. Sosumi.
Looks: Lovely. Delicate features, slim body, pale skin, blond hair. Slight hint of bones showing in the facial features, so I knew she was getting slightly older.
Her first question to me: What do you do for a living? (Actually, the only question she asked me.) I fobbed her off with: "I work at xXx, making sure that their PCs work most of the time." Deliberately made it sound bland and uninteresting and didn't bother to tell her that I was an IT professional and PCs were the least-interesting things that I deal with. To be blunt, this question immediately screamed "gold digger" to me.
Only question I asked her: How do you spend most of your time? From this I learned the following:
* she's a marine biologist by training
* currently doing reception work because it's not easy to find marine biologist jobs here
* from overseas (I won't say the country)
* enjoys New Zealand because of the less-cold temperatures here
Her first question to another guy: How old are you? From this I learned the following:
* she is 27 years old
* she thought that a guy 35 years old was "okay" (ie in her range of dating options)
Overall evaluation: shallow gold digger. Her only interest in guys she'd just met was very selfishly focused: she wanted to know what kind of job they have (ie income) and their age (in her range). No interest in possible common interests, personality, hobbies, values, life experiences (ie travel), etc.
I wonder how many other girls and men out there are very much the same types.
