Lesbian speed dating of new york
By the end of the night, I had met about 16 different men, and I can tell you that the look of disappointment that flashed on their faces upon seeing me never got old.
I tried my best to be my most "top" self (like trying to polish a turd, as they say).
By the time I got to the handsomest man in the room, I could tell we were both exhausted.
I was tired from putting on the performance of my life, and he was tired from all the normals he'd had to speak to.
That's how I imagine this gentleman felt, except that instead of being the smartest man in the room, he was the best-looking.

I was less than halfway through a night of gay speed dating for "bottoms" and "tops" and had already been asked three times if I was in the right group. You're gayer than Judy Garland's Christmas ornaments. " I eventually "lost" my name tag at some point in the night. Far too many of the men, who were essentially about to go on at least 15 first dates, were wearing T-shirts and tank tops.
There was a drizzle of uneasy laughter from the men in line. These men weren't the living mannequins you see gliding on the roller skates of their good looks through Chelsea.
