The problem with taking so many science classes...

Not enough cute guys! (sigh)

I've noticed that in practically all the classes that I've taken since '05 in prepping for pharm school apps is that there's at least a majority of the class is women. Not that there's anything wrong with that, but there just seems to be a dearth of good looking guys doing science. I guess it doesn't help that I also am a good 10-15 years older than most of these guys so there's no one worth really looking at.

The funny thing is that most of the guys who are in my classes tend to be queer, since most of the classes I've been taking are also prereqs for nursing, so it's not that much of a stretch. Too bad I don't find them too attractive.

My anatomy prof is kinda good looking--for an older white guy, until I saw him on Wednesday wearing an ill-fitting shirt and pants that made him look like a white MC Hammer.


On that note, I was swimming yesterday when my coach (who is 13 years younger than me) decided to bring in the kids he coaches from a local high school. The girl who I was swimming asked me, "Don't you think they're hot?"

I looked at her in horror. It just depressed me to realize that I'm about twice their age, and instead of thinking they're attractive, my maternal instincts came up. I did notice that these boys tended to be a lot more muscular than the boys I knew in high school, but otherwise they didn't do anything at all for me.

I guess I'm just one of those guys who likes guys around his age--for me, I think there's too much potential for a weird power differential to happen or some weird daddy-son thing going on that gives me the creeps. My roommate in LA was this older Chinese guy (if I remember correctly, late 40s) who happened to like younger Asian men (around my age at the time which was 22-23--thankfully we never did anything). He happened to date this guy who was just a couple years older than me, and I walked in on them kissing. For some reason it creeped me out, because it did look a lot like father-son to me. Now I have respect for people in relationships where there's a huge age differential and they can make it work, but it's not for me.

Speaking of which, now that I'm over 30, and because of my build, I've suddenly become desirable to younger Asian guys who want a big brother/father (!!!) type, and I turn them down--because I'm really, really not into that.

dude, dating someone old enough to be my parent doesn't do it for me, either. but whatever floats yer boat, i suppose. all that love is love stuff has to apply to everyone equally (well except if you want to love your dog, that's just wrong).

anyway, which weekend in june? the 23-24 or 30/july 1?
