So it was cold and rainy a lot of the weekend and I don’t know about you, but I am not a fan of rain. I know there are many who say we need it because we don’t get enough in this part of the country, and I get that, and I know there are just those who like the smell and the sound and all the romance of that. But it’s a free country and I choose to not like rain, lol.
One thing about the rain, is that depending on how hard it comes down, it seems to have this effect on people in the clubs. I know that sounds crazy, but I have noticed for a number of years that some guys are either too uptight and irritated because of the rain and the coats and umbrellas, etc., and other guys are downright the opposite, all giddy and happy. There doesn’t seem to be any in-between temperaments, lol. Either grumpy or happy.
Anyway, Friday night with some rain pounding down, I went to my usual place, that is when I go, because I have been going less and less lately. Just getting lazy or I have other things to do. But the rain made me want to get out, and I am glad it did. When I got there, the place was half empty. Made sense with the weather. And there was the mix of grumpy and happy I was telling you about. I wanted to be in between, lol, but I couldn’t help but feel grumpy. Sigh. I hate having to bring an umbrella and all that. One time someone took it. So now I have a bright red one. 🙂 But still, I want to be unencumbered.
As I looked around the club, my eyes settled on a guy sitting alone and I could see he was grumpy. Well, he sure acted that way. So I went over and asked if I could sit next to him and if he wanted to chat. He said OK, and I sat down and we started talking. Brad was his name, traveling sales was his game, lol. He was from Sacramento and had some medical sales meeting thing on Monday so he came down earlier to be here for the weekend. He was between boyfriends like me and we talked about that and we had a great talk actually. He hated his job, too bad, and he hated the rain, lol. But he did like the chicken wings and the drinks.
When it hit about 1 AM, we both decided to head home, each of us going to our own places, but we made a date the next day to go to a museum. And we did even though there was a rain threat. Well, it wasn’t raining which was nice and we went to the Getty Center. I like museums and the place was nice. Not my first time but there is always some kind of new exposition or symposium and that’s great. Brad was into it too. After like 4 hours, we ate there, and then went back to town and our separate ways. Brad was busy Sunday but he said he might be coming back down from Sacramento in a month or so. Although there were no sparks, it was kind of like pre-sparks, if you know what I mean. So why not?
Brad is a good guy, stable, centered. There are many Brads out there and if you can find yours in a club or bar, or supermarket, more power to you. Do so. But in this busy world, that may be hard. So I recommend you join GayBearDating.com. You will be happy you did.
