Overheard in LA

Table full of high-maintenance West Side bitches at La Salsa. You know the type; immaculately done up, thin, heavily made up, beautiful, carefully done hair, perpetually sour expression on their joyless faces due to spending all their time at the gym or shopping, rather than enjoying any of life's non-materialistic pleasures. One says to the other; "Dating sucks. The other night I went on a date, and the guy I'm out with asks me "What do you think of exisistentialism?" What a loser. Like I've cared about that since freshmen philosophy. Hello?"

She was right about one thing - dating her would suck.

SO not true!

Take you, for example: Your own intellect is obvious. You don't have to prove a thing or try to be anything that you are not. While I wouldn't be at all suprised to find myself discussing philosophy with you (and you strike me as more of a John Locke type than an existentialist anyway) I would be quite surprised were you to bring it up just to impress or intimidate a date or anyone else for that matter.

As a woman, I am equally unimpressed with a man who feels like he has to impress by his car/designer watch/ Black Mastercard. Does that mean I don't like rich men? Please.

Ain't it the truth. On all counts. -Katt

'Tis not the truth. Because I *might*, in the course of normal conversation, ask someone what they think about existentialism. In fact, prior to this whole fracas, I've even given it some thought. So yeah,that could come up on a date.

And if it did, per this woman's prescription - it makes me a loser. And per your analysis, it makes me necessarily, absolutely, a pretentious dick. No ifs ands or buts about it - I MUST be trying to show off, there's no WAY I could just be making conversation.

Which, by the way, is utter bullocks.
