Match’s College Buddies

Lem: Do you think wildly erratic emotions could be a residual effect of the energy patch?
Phil: Hard to tell. This is the problem when the company will only pay for testing on drunk frat guys.                                                                                                                        – Better off Ted

Tonight Match and I are going to hang out with some of Match’s old college friends, most of whom I’ve never met. Neither of us are huge fans of the bar scene, mostly because we’re just plain over it. Loud, smelly drunk people looking to hook up, who bump into me because they can’t see my towering 5ft frame can get old fast. At least California bars don’t allow smoking. At the bars in Oregon, I felt like I had mesothelioma lung cancer after being inside a bar for five minutes! So at least we don’t have that.

Hopefully Match’s friends will be fun, and not grouped into that obnoxious drunkard category. These friends of Match’s are old friends, some he hasn’t seen in years. It’ll be interesting to see how he reacts to that. I’ve always found the experience of seeing old college friends slightly strange. I was such a different person when I was in school than I am today. Sometimes I run into old acquaintances that are still stuck in the college mindset, with messy apartments and ramen in the cupboards. Others have grown up and have jobs and responsibilities. I can’t help but wonder too, when he does hang out with the friends that aren’t in committed “grown up relationships” will he be envious? Will he wish he was still in college and not quite so settled down? I know Match is happy with me and our little life, but I’m a girl, so of course I have my insecurities. I’m planning on glamming up tonight and bringing my A game, just to help remind him of how good we’ve got it.  You know, just in case. 😉

    Are men at any age into that “grown-up”-thing as much as women are?

    Def have your A game but no I doubt Match will think that he misses the “college days.” Instead I think it will make him appreciate you and what you two have together more 🙂 Hope it went well!!
