DC is done!

post #1 of 267
Thread Starter 
Well, I'm done with DC., been here too long, seen too many sleazy pols., dated too many 'sensitive' metrosexuals.
The last straw was last week, coming out of a restaurant in Georgetown, some creepo snatched my purse, and took off. Instead of chasing the little jerk, my date called 911 on his cell, then did the whole "I feel your pain" shtick!!
Little Willie (an inside DC. girls' joke) Clinton has a lot to answer for.
I'm finding more in common with older men, they seem less apologetic about being a MAN!
Pus, the 'metros' can't ski worth a s***. I took one heliskiing 2 years ago, he about had a heart attack, he did not even use his 100,000 ft., I used mine up on Wednesday morning!
OK, so where do I go?
Are there any real men left?
If so, where?
Wimps or warriors.

I don't want some redneck to toss me over his shoulder and take me to his mobile home, but a knight in shining armor sweeping me up on his steed and galloping off to Camelot has a definite appeal right now.

Montana sounds cool, Wyoming OK, Utah too dry, Colorado is becoming California Lite, New Hampshire is now a suburb of Boston, Eastern Oregon is interesting ('tho I've never been there).

FWIW I grew up in Cal., went to UC Berkeley, then Law School in DC.
Taught skiing at Alpine.

Would not blame the moderators if they dumped this post!!

What's your stats (age, etc.)?

I'm not single, but I can at least dream about a hardcore ski chick, right?

My wife ski's, but she's not into taking it beyond intermediate...Oh well.

I'd tell you to come to philly, 'cause you sound awesome...







.... but philly is a skiing wasteland. Sorry to anyone who lives around here... but it is. That said, if you have any friends, maybe on the younger side, that share your sentiments on things, philly might not be so bad for them, at least for the next few years

... joking joking...

... sort of...

Hell, my kinda' woman would have delivered a round house kick that caught the perp in the ear and put out his lights, whipped out a set of "plasti-cuffs" and held him till the fuzz came.

Philly has had a "murder a day" and they are now screaming for the mayors scalp .... that was in the paper yesterday.
post #6 of 267
Philly is astonishing. It's one of the five largest cities in the country (maybe 6th?), and it has only a handful of safe neighborhoods. There's one green block in all of center city (Rittenhouse), and people flock to it like it's the greatest thing since sliced bread. People tell me they love the city, and I always think I must be missing something.

argh. rant finished. I am, however, happy to meet any friends of yours that move to philly

How ya do'n.

Idaho, Montana and Eastern Oregon still have good ol'boys. Best skiing prolly Montana. People still wave with all their fingers.

Try appealing to mens inner weaknesses, as in this ad that seems half-jokingly to be making the rounds, lately on CL:

Wanted, stable sane woman who can cook, hike, fish and owns a boat. Send picture of boat.

Substitute owns a dog/picture of dog and you get the point.

Dear DC_duh,

Well you can't help the fact that you grew up in California. But the decisions to attend Berkeley and law school in DC were yours alone and frankly any real man with only half his wits would .... let me put it this way! Women like you are the reason that real men escape to the mountains, the deep forests and other dark haunts like saloons where sawdust, spittle and blood mix and mingle on the beer sodden floors.

We are what you made us. Gotta go now! Turner is running "The Quiet Man" .... John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara.

You should have gone to George Mason Univ. School of Law. I would have but it wasn't there when I went to Columbus School of Law (Catholic U). In Virginia your date could have been packing and would have called 911 for an ambulance for the purse snatcher. Alas, I am also limited by similar restrictions though in the People's Republic of Maryland.

Since this IS a ski forum, we will be directing you to ski country to become a ski bum!
Be Sure to fasten your seatbelt..........its gonna be a bumpy ride!

.........


There're a coupla guys out there that would fit the qualifications!!!!

Shining armor=Volant skis
Montana sounds cool=Our own "Volant Addict", "Rio" might qualify (I don't think he skis Volants..) and then there's the "banded name that can't be mentioned"....all in Montana ....these are not wimps; at least two of them drive pic-em-up trucks of older vintage.... Love dogs, hate TV and BC is more of the norm than the exception....
post #20 of 267
Montana, eh. I live near DC and I have to agree with that. The place sucks. Isn't Philly the place where the police dropped a firebomb on some squatters to get them to move out of the building? I'm going to retire in 6 years and move someplace where the skiing is decent.
post #21 of 267
Duh!

Well I can't say that I would have chased a little jerk through Georgetown on a full stomach, but I have paid for extra vert and I am an older man. I don't have any horses but I do have room for one here in Mount Airy (it's about 40 miles from DC). If you'd have posted this a week ago, I'd have been more than happy to sweep you off to Salt Lake. The cirque was a little rocky though. Pic in the sig is from heli skiing in Chile.

Word of advice - stay in DC. Real men run away from the words "real men". And knights in shining armor are only found in the surburbs, watching football and mowing the lawn on the weekends.

Huh??

Ann Coulter??? Guess the old saying is correct "stupidity is it's own reward". How anyone can look at my post and see A.C's philosophy is beyond idiocy.

The whole CCW debate is hot in DC right now, the recent court decision has control advocates in an uproar.

If your feelings are hurt by my use of 'real men', then I guess you are one of those sensitive metrosexuals 'real women' are starting to avoid like the plague.

If women like me are sending men scurrying to the hills, I guess they're looking for the little 'hausfrau' woman. Men who are scared of successful, confident women are, by definition, WIMPS.

A lot of men are intimidated by women who can outski them.

If you don't like the term 'real men', suggest another shorthand way to describe what that term conveys.

back to work...........bye
post #24 of 267
So why didn't clock that sucker yourself?

PS ... I will admit to being intimidated by a woman who can out fight me but not by one who can out ski me!



The "ERA" should have been "ERaER" ... Equal Rights & Equal Responsibilities. :
post #25 of 267
It could have been worse. Your date could have run after the guy, gone around the corner and hit himself with a brick. You would have thought he was some kind of hero and married the fake. A redneck would have been CCW and took the guy out.

Most men that think they are real men are mistaken. Same goes for women. Everyone has a real side. You just got to find it.

Wow 5:08am post and working.

Metrosexual? You: born in Cali, live in DC, educated in Berkely. Me: born on an army base, live in the mountains, educated on a fishing boat in Alaska. As far as my feelings being hurt, girl you can't go there. You got nothing.

Scared of successful, confident women? Honey, I'm not the one looking for a "knight in shining armor". If you're successful and confident, why the hell are you looking for some one to sweep you off your feet on their white charger?

You're clearly meeting men in the wrong environment and then going skiing with them (and ending up disappointed). Next time you're skiing and you see some guys tearing it up at your level, go hang out and ski with them. Any time I meet up with locals in the mid-A area to ski in VA and WV, we have a great time and would welcome a chic who can rip. I second the recommendation to visit the DC ski forums and meet up with some of us next season when we get together. There are some top notch skiers in the area if you know where to look. Starting with the metros is probably the wrong approach; start with the skiers.

sorry, duh. gotta agree with harry here. if you want a 'real' man, you have to look for a real person, not a myth. and anyone who is real and not pretending to be a knight in shining armor is going to want something more than an ego seeking rescue. sorry to be so blunt, since i know how debilitating living in dc can be. I humbly suggest you move to the mountains first and then figure out the man thing later. You are confident and successful, so you do not need the man to take you there and you shouln't choose the place based on where you think you're going to find said him. also, you will sadly notice that the Marlboro man type you describe usually is in fact either gay or seeking his counterpart, the hausfrau who won't challenge his status in the house or on the slopes. Either that, or you have to have reeeaaallly big boobs, in which case the idiot will put up with anything.

In my experience successful, confident people don't label others and call them names. You may make a bunch of money, but you don't sound truly successful or confident to me.

We'd be happy to have another good skier among the instructors at Liberty, and you would find more than enough men willing to ski with you. As far as I am concerned whether a woman skis well or not does not influence me so much as a women simply willing to ski and therefore get together on a trip. Then it comes down to personality. I am not intimidated by women who can do things I am not good at, or even those things I am good at. It is extremely unlikely that a woman who can do everything better than I can would be interested in me, so that is no problem. I am not likely to be interested in women who cannot do anything better than I can, so that isn't a problem. Therefore any woman I am likely to go out with is likely to some things better than I can and not other things. I am not alone in this respect.

As far as your post on being robbed and your boyfriend not giving chase- I don't think you apprehend how dangerous unarmed combat pursuant to a chase can be. I grew up in the Bronx, and I have done citizens arrests, chased robbers of other people, disrupted and chased a probable rapist, and I also have been held up numerous times. The relative advantage is usually with the robber who picks the time and place for the attack, so most times the wisest course is not to resist. I wasn't there, so I cannot tell how likely your boyfriend as to succeed in a pursuit. Bear in mind that robbers often have accomplices nearby to assist. If your boyfriend had given chase and been harmed, I suspect you would feel a lot worse. You should not be angry at your boyfriend. Be angry at the robber and at the system which does not deter him. After each crime in which I was a victim, I felt very angry, and I suspect you are too. Do not deflect this anger against your boyfriend who was not really in a good position to help.
