Random Meetup

So I'm kinda new in DC and don't know anybody. I decided to take the proactive step and answer a "strictly platonic" ad from Craigslist (Thanks for the recommendation, Allison). It's with a happily married girl, 27, and also want to just know more people. We exchanged 2-3 Emails for about a week or so, and decided to meet up for a few games of pool today.

I personally had a great time. We shot pool for about an hour then had dinner at a place that reminded me of QDoba's in Charlotte. Feels good to shoot pool again, and also feels good to have a pool buddy in DC area. We briefly talked about our jobs, our outlook on relationships/marriages, and life in general.

No it’s not. Affairs start with lack of self discipline on the single person’s side and the lack of a happy marriage on the married person’s side. I think we have both.

I totally disagree as well. Married people surely deserve to have friends too....and I'm sure it's even harder for them to make friends than for single people.

it all sounds pretty fishy to me, Paul. friends, yes, but for a married woman to meet a random guy off of craig's list just to be friends? i dunno... be careful. but i know you're a big boy and you know what you're getting yourself into. it may be more beneficial for you to meet single girls anyways ;)

Okay, so the vote on the "stricktly friends" vs "sounds fishy" is 2-3, and I'm losing. Somebody help be on my side and help me out.

Honestly, I think the ball's in your court. If you want it to be 'strictly platonic' I think it will be (possibly fizzle and die if she wanted more) and if you decide you're interested, more power to you for pursuing it. Unless she has kids, then you're a jerk.

Dude, Andrew, you suck. I thought being the good guy you are, you'd agree with me and Allison.

I don't think neither her or myself "want more."

"Unless she has kids, then I'm a jerk"? Personally speaking, I think I'd be a jerk either way if I tried anything.

I think the bigger question is, why are you wasting time with a married girl when you could be out trying to find a single girl? Sounds like wasted efforts to me. Go out there and rack up 100 rejects to get the 1 yes rather than the guaranteed rejection.

Yeah, except I'm not looking for anybody. You Raleigh people get committed and then married off, what's up with that? Don't you want to stay single and live your life freely? DO whatever you want to do, no responsibilities, no worries if anything bad happened to you, because you're only responsible for yourself?
