Gaydar at the Gas Station
I'm crushed. I have the worst luck ever when it comes to men and it is no wonder that I am single.
I work in the suburbs of Chicago and today during my break I decided to go to the gas station since gas is cheaper here in the burbs than in the city. Well, as I was walking past this SUV my gaydar began to go off. The windows were tinted and I couldn't see the driver but I just knew that there was a homosexual inside! So I paid for my gas and as I was leaving the SUV driver was standing outside filling his tank. We both just stared at eachother for a few seconds. He then said "Hello." to which I responded with a "hello". I felt so weird just saying hi to a stranger at the gas station like that. In the city, there are homos everywhere, but in the burbs this is really a rare ocurrence.
Anyhoo, he was cute so I walked back over to him and we began to chat. I suggested we exchange numbers and he suggested that I take his number and program it in my cell phone. Well, I am really stupid when it comes to cell phones and entering phone numbers but for some stupid reason it didn't occur to me to say "let me get a pen and paper". So he gave me his number and I thought I had saved it in my phone. He didn't take my number and then we said goodbye and left. I got back to work realizing I NEVER FUCKING pressed "save" and his number was gone :(
So now I am going to put one of those "missed connections" ads on Craiglists. Yes, I am a loser.
