So Im 43 and single, and rather enjoy being single. I do have an attractive casual girlfriend I can call when I want some companionship, but she is alot like me, she enjoys her privacy and being single. We probably see each other once every three weeks or so but talk often in between on the phone. But for some reason whenever I am out with male friends they are always trying to hook me up. The problem with that is Im really not the type that goes in for casual sex, and I am also only attracted to/or interested in certain women. This problem came up for me last night. I was at a bar checking out a band and enjoying my singleness, when I ran into a friend. We chatted a bit, and he went started chatting it up with others. After he went on his way the food I ordered arrived so I just sat and enjoyed my food and drinks, with the intention of leaving after I was done eating. Shortly after I was done eating, my friend comes back with two women, and it was pretty obvious he was trying to pick the one up but she wouldnt go anywhere unless her friend was picked up, and it turns out I was the manbait for her. It was pretty uncomfortable on several levels. They were much older (probably in their 50's), and for lack of a better way of saying it both looked like they had very hard lives.. Fortunately for me her friend had drunk way too much and ended up puking and giving me an out.... If she hadnt gotten sick Im still really not sure how to I could have handled that.
