Post-Collegenism: Chapter 2 - Beer, Pizza, Wrestling

Ever wonder what makes men tick? There you go: Beer, Pizza, Wrestling. That is the foundation for all the important decisions men make. And many important decisions are on horizon:

1) To rent or not to rent: seriously faced with the prospect of paying as much as $2000 a month for a 1-bedroom apartment, I have began to question my priorities. While I could easily afford this, I still don't want to be throwing so much money away. Heck, if I were to live in a place like PA I could get SIX appartments for the same money. There are only a few options left:

a) Get a roommate. While the obvious choice, it does little to solve the "throwing money away" issue.

b) Buy an apartment/house. A better idea, but I would have to live with parents for a few months to save up enough money for a down payment.

c) Get a rich girlfriend. Not realistic and purely imaginary. But I can't help but to think what would happen if I and Ally were to start going out. Afterall, her family is very well-off.

2) Graduate school: I have looked at catalogs for MBA programs and found one that I really like. I also know my employer would pay 100% of the tuition. Here is the thing - the average age of students in the program is 27. Not only will I be "the little kid" there, I can most certainly forget about finding a girlfriend while I'm at it. How pathetic: I evaluate an educational program based on my chances of finding a girlfriend there.

3) The Ally Situation: I just don't get her. I could-have, perhaps, maybe, would-have considered asking her out if she would just stop acting weird. After knowing her for 4 months I still can't predict what she will do or say. So far I can describe her as: not open minded, an air head, slightly delusional, independent and indifferent, totally lacks any understanding of relationships. On the other hand, sometimes she shows a more caring and softer side, but again that is rare and unpredictable. She says she is a "hopeless romantic", but I think she is just as much a "hopeless romantic" as I am a German fighter pilot.

I don't think there are any options left but to wait for the next weekend and perhaps more beer and pizza to sort all this out.

Dude, I thought my rental rates were crazy, but that's insane!

Also, based on your description of Ally...why the hell are you still thinking about her?

Holy crap! What city do you live in?

I'll bet you're still thinking about Ally because you lack any better options. Am I right?

Yeah, you're right.

And just for the record, I live in New york City. :)

I would never let a woman control my life, unless the relationship had been going on for a LONG time (i.e. years). Why? Wherever I work or move, there will be others.

Hold on, isn't NYC a mecca of hot, single women?

Is it really?

In that case my position is even more pathetic. :)
