I'm not talking someone who does murals, I'm talking tags and train cars here.All I could do was think about how irrelevant this is to the real world.That has not happened."And that’s an expectation a lot of the guys here have.There’s nothing wrong with that, but I’m very independent and that’s not who I am, so dating has been a little hard for me.It gets dark really early in the winter, and the clubs are pretty dead.People tend to stay in, so the people you might click with you don’t get to see as much. A lot of people visit from out of state, and there’s also an army base near Anchorage, so you end up having a lot of summer flings."I dated this 'graffiti artist' for three years when I was younger, but I recently grabbed drinks with him — four years [after we broke up] — and he's still into [graffiti art].On one date, a guy brought Goldfish and coloring books, and we watched a movie.It was a little weird, but it was cute."If a guy suggests a dinner date, I'll admit I will judge a little bit based on the restaurant he chooses.
In his profile, he was really put together, but I show up and he looked completely different than his photos. We barely spoke — there’s no way he had a good time. He left me this three-minute voicemail explaining all the ways I was wrong for taking him off my Instagram and about how we would never speak again. Then he sent an email to my work address."That’s fine, but they’re also so uncomfortable defining the relationship, even if it’s just to clarify if you are or are not hooking up with anyone else.
There’s not a huge rush to get married — people here are pretty career-driven.
