Or in my case, how I failed miserably at convincing a herd of Bottoms that I was a Top. By Matthew Lee Published: Back to top Close. Be winners like these boys. Not a loser like me. There were, as usual, too many Bottoms! The Dating tops and bottoms, which was held in the confines of a cavernous bar downtown, had Dating tops and bottoms surprisingly large turnout. I happened to be one of the first guys to register with the organizer, and I took the opportunity to grab a beer and watch the men herd into line to register like cattle to the slaughter.
There was a drizzle of uneasy laughter from the men in line. I looked at my nametag, which was peeling off already, as if it knew that the "T" written on it was all some horrible lie.
Get a couple of drinks in you and what are you? Once everyone had registered, our organizer separated us into our respective groups. And just like that, there we were: It was like a nightmarish game of dodgeball that would air on LOGO. I was surprised to see that of the ish men there, only three myself included were dressed up. Far too many of the men, who were essentially about to go on at least fifteen first dates, were wearing t-shirts and tank tops.
Whereas I tried to look as though I had just gotten off my Dating tops and bottoms job as a writer, a majority of the men looked as though they had just left their shift at Aeropostale.
Had all these men lost hope? Why were they dressed like that dude from high school who always tries to sell you knives when you run into him every back home? If you learn anything from me at all, it's that you should always dress how you want to feel, not how you actually feel.
To be blunt, most of the men on either side myself included were average -- sometimes aggressively so. The men here were normal dudes: Have you ever been at a party and realized, with a cold sweat and a shiver of dread, that you were the smartest one in the room? Except instead of being the smartest man in the room, he was the best-looking. This was only heightened by the fact that most of the men at the event were, as I said, aggressively average.
Like, community college Dating tops and bottoms. One gentleman, for example, interrupted me halfway throughout our introductions and asked with a smile, "Are you a Greek god?
Flattered, and with a bit of beer foam dribbling out of my mouth, I politely declined. I know how that scenario usually ends: 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 Dating tops and bottoms Top-self like trying to polish a turd, as they say.
I tried to make my chest seem bigger, deepened my voice and swigged my shy beer like I was in a square state. There is nothing speedy about speed dating. My voice was so hoarse it was one broken leg away from a glue factory, and my personality had a heavy case of whiskey d--k.
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 had to speak to.
I had no desire to impress or pretend to be interested in "Dating tops and bottoms" that wasn't sleep — or pizza, or a burrito, or both at the same time.
Which is a shame, because this gentleman was like a surprisingly nice dessert section in a really bad buffet. I could still tell he had a great personality to match his Prince Eric looks. Unfortunately, "Dating tops and bottoms" were both the human equivalents of melted ice at the bottom of a cooler previously filled with beer, dreams and the empty promise of a good time.
Speed dating, even the kind tailored toward your preferred sexual role, is a great alternative to the more obvious option - online dating. The human race must have really pissed off a love god from some pantheon to be punished with the literal hell that is OkStupid. It was incredibly refreshing to meet people in real life, for once.
Some of the men were Dating tops and bottoms of speed-dating, and from the sound of it, they had not lost hope. They went into this round with just as much enthusiasm and vigor as they did the first time — even if they were wearing t-shirts.
Love is truly a numbers game, and these men knew this. That, my friends, was the biggest takeaway. Yankees will have Dating tops and bottoms deal with Tigers' Scherzer, Price and Verlander.
