Dating a straight edge guy
Today we get word of Date Edge, which is in no way a parody, but an actual dating site for "a simple, fun dating site for people who are straightedge".
People assume that a guy and a girl at a restaurant are on a date; it doesn’t occur to them that two women are together. This is less about societal expectations and more about physical inconveniences. Plus, the time I’ve spent in monogamous relationships with women is time I haven’t wasted finding the right birth control or dealing with spotting, dryness, and mood swings while searching for my hormonal Holy Grail. People in public spaces are much more interested in two women holding hands than they are in an opposite-sex couple holding hands.
I always carry peanuts and sunflower seeds for the squirrels and pigeons.
I'm straight edge, don't drink don't smoke don't do drugs.
Both times, it was an SUV passenger shouting to the guy I was with to “hit that pussy.” Thanks for the sex advice, pal. They want to know if I love him, if I’d marry him, if I’d have his kid.
Somehow this just doesn’t come up as much when I’m dating women.
