The Geography Expert

Went out with a woman last night who thinks New Jersey is a borough. "I won't date guys who live in the boroughs," she says, "like Brooklyn, Queens and New Jersey."

Then at the end of the date, she tells me I'm in the "top 5" of guys she's gone out with in the past few weeks. Like I'm in a contest, and she's the grand prize.
I may have to move to Hoboken just to be removed from consideration.

Wow, she's kind of stupid! Run, don't walk, away from this woman!

Well, I won't buy cars made in Mediterranean countries like France, Italy, or England! LOL

My sister once had this roommate in college (Long Island) who asked her if Maryland was somewhere between Long Island and Upstate New York. I remember this girl in a high school history class who asked the teacher out loud if Belgium and Britain were the same thing.

You are sure this girl wasn't being sarcastic about this "boroughs" remark?

What I wanna know is how long is the list of guys she's gone out with lately if you're in the top 5?

Del, This chick couldn't spell sarcastic, let alone be sarcastic.

A girl in my high school history class once asked the teacher if Woodrow Wilson was the first black president. Maybe they're related.

Can someone exlpain why so many Manhattan women disqualify guys who live outside of the city? I own a beautiful apartment in Brooklyn and I'm getting blown off by women who live in rat infested apartments with 3 roommates because i don't live in the city.

JJ, I live in California but I heard that a lot when I was on Jdate. I don't understand it either. With public transportation and most people commuting into the city, it baffles me. But then again, I met my fiance via our blogs and it is one year later and he STILL is in Ottawa, 3000 miles away. But that will be changing soon. :) Anyway, the point? A burrough beats 3000 miles.

I know a bunch of women like that. They live in the city, have their parents pay their rent, but won't talk to a guy who's living over a bridge or through a tunnel....because living out of manahttan isn't cool, but having your parents pay your rent somehow is.
