I have written nearly sixty posts now, and in about 40% of those posts I mentioned the shortage of women in Dickinson. I have devoted about six posts to describing the shortage of women in Dickinson. I wrote about not ever looking at internet dating sites until I came to Dickinson, the need for prostitution in Dickinson, women in Dickinson not wanting to be bothered by oil field workers, you can go back and read those posts.
Things have changed now, they have definitely changed. I waited about one month to write this post, to make sure that I was seeing what I thought I was seeing. Many women are starting to be nice to me now. I have lived in Dickinson for over three years now, and in the past, women were never nice or friendly toward me. I am the same person I was three years ago, only older, what has changed?
So many oil field workers have moved away, that there is probably an equal number of men and women in Dickinson now. So many young men oil field workers have moved away, that there are more young single women, than there are single men in Dickinson. Right now, I have, let me count, about seven women under the age of 30, who are acting like they would like for me to ask them out. They come and sit beside me, come and hang around me, want to talk to me, this is completely different.
I think that the main reason why these young women are interested in me now is, first: I appear to have a job and I am able to remain in Dickinson; second, I have been here for several years and I don’t have a bad reputation, I have not taken advantage of women or been abusive; third, I am kind of mild mannered, polite, and clean. These qualities weren’t good enough to attract women in the past in Dickinson, but they are good enough now.
I guess these young women are scared, and they want to survive. They don’t want to be alone, they don’t think that they can make it on their own. I don’t think that these young women do a lot of reading, I don’t think that they pay attention to economic forecasts. I think that something in Dickinson has really alarmed them, and alerted them that things are bad. The only thing that I can think of that would have been noticeable to them, would be the disappearance of oil field workers. Apparently this scared them so much, that they now look to me as someone who can possibly help them.
The truth is, I am worried too. I don’t know what I am going to do. I don’t know what is going to happen to me. Rather than thinking this is my big chance to have sex with all of these young women, I am not in the mood. I only feel like talking to them enough to figure out what is going on with them, to see if there is anything I can say or do to help. The outlook is so bad in Dickinson now, I don’t know what any of us can do.
