This is too damned funny...
I Have a Seduction Style?!?

Got a call on Skype last night from a friend of mine in Paris finishing up her culinary education. This woman and I took a few classes together as undergrads and I've heard from her maybe twice in five years (I'm absolutely lousy at keeping in touch with folks myself. She found me by searching Skype for profiles.)

We talked for about 20 minutes, exchanged "real" phone numbers, and talked about life's weird quirks.

A 26-year-old, on her second husband, the current one a 51-year-old investment banker from The Netherlands who sounds about as exciting as a sawdust sandwich. She doesn't want children; her hubby wants four. He wants her to move to Dublin; she wants to move back to San Jose, Calif.

They were fighting. So she hopped online and started tracking down people from her past. Apparently, I was try no. 15.

And, apparently, she was totally shocked that I'm now a librarian in Ohio. She envisioned I'd either a) be a professor somewhere, b) working for ESPN or having made it to network, or c) in law school.

She'd also heard a rather vicious rumor... apparently I dropped off the planet because I got some girl pregnant and I'd run to Louisiana to chase women and drink myself into a coma. Well..did move to Louisiana, but it was for...uh...grad school.

Anyway, she thought enough about it to almost believe it. I dispelled some of the nasty rumors, but, for some reason, she had a hard time buying into me being a librarian, that I was basically living like a monk (trust me, if you're unfamiliar with Oxford...I'd be more likely to find a date at the Vatican), and that I still refuse to allow Abercrombie and Fitch into my house because of its often racist t-shirt content (she thought that was just something I told girls to get them to take their clothes off.)

Alise sent me this random survey thing she got from a friend of hers. Figured I'd post it because it was sort of interesting, and since she asked that I let her know if I'd somehow become prude, frigid, or something.

Apparently, I'm a good catch or something. Of course, the survey results aren't scientific and sound like they came out of Cosmo or YM or even Seventeen Magazine.

Your Seduction Style: Prized Object

The seduction game you play is tried, true, and still effective: hard to get.
You know that the best seducers turn the tables - and get their crush to seduce them.
The one running has the power, and you're a challenge that is worth the chase.

You are a master of enticing and pulling back. Giving a little and taking some away.
You are controlled enough to know rewards come after a long seduction dance.
Even though you want to call, email, or say "I love you" first - you don't!

You're style is the perfect mix of hot and cold - so much so that you have many suitors.
Think Holly Golightly from Breakfast at Tiffany's ... or any of those creepy guys from the Bachelor.
You're skilled at inspiring a chase. The real test is picking the person to slow down for.

LOL...great to see your still just as self-conscious as ever, man ;) And you're the LAST guy I ever expected to end up working in a friggin' library!

And the A&F thing is so badass! Rock on! You shouldn't have messed with those kind of wannabe scenesters anyway back in SLO Town.

BTW, do ya still drink those wierd g&t's???

Dude, you realize you really tend to put yourself down too much. I think you're such a seductive person...that's why my big sis fell hard for you back in the day(how many fuking 19yo guys get the 24yo girl?).

You're not a prude, frigid, or anything like that. You're a very decent guy with a very big heart. Don't know why you became a librarian, but you sure have my roomie's panties in a bunch wanting to become one. So that's pretty badass, too.
