I have been feeling a little depressed for the past couple of weeks, as if there is something missing from my life. It feels like I am missing some drive, motivation, inspiration, or purpose. I was trying to think about what was wrong, and I realized what it was.
There is nothing to do in Dickinson, North Dakota, and I have hours upon hours of nothing to do but think and contemplate. I realized, “Do you know, I haven’t seen an attractive woman for the past eight weeks.”
I thought about it, and thought about it, and tried to remember, the last attractive woman that I saw was eight weeks ago in a store. There was a young lady of about 23 years, she was my height, slender build, long dark hair, and she said in a normal manner, “Can I help you, are you looking for something?” That was the only attractive woman that I could remember seeing, and this was eight weeks ago.
It’s not like I don’t go anywhere. I go to different grocery stores about four times per week, gas stations about four times per week, hardware stores about four times per week, fast-food restaurants twice per week, I pay some bills in-person, and I go to my job four days per week. Yet I don’t ever see attractive women, anywhere.
This is not normal, this is what has been making me feel depressed, and even very angry sometimes. Looking back upon my life, meeting and seeing attractive women has always been an important element of being alive.
When I was in elementary school, middle school, and high school in Florida, there were always at least two to four girls in each of my classes who were attractive and worthy of attention. I would look forward to seeing these girls each day, what they would wear, how their hair would be, how they would act, what they might say and do. It was a challenge and inspiration for me to come up with something to say or do that would get their attention.
When I went to college in Virginia, and later university in Florida, it was probably even more full of very attractive women. Whether it was going to class, going to the gym, going to parties, or going to bars, it was so fun to see, meet, talk to, and try to seduce women.
As a young adult living and working in different cities in Florida, you could not help but see and interact with beautiful women, wherever you went: Walmart, grocery stores, convenience stores, gas stations, bars, restaurants, shopping malls, hardware stores, work, government offices, post office, banks,…absolutely everywhere, every day, all day.
The existence of these beautiful women was an inspiration and motivation to me. I tried to stay in good physical condition, have a clean and professional appearance, wear nice looking well-fitting clothes that were taken to the cleaners and pressed, have a new clean vehicle, and pay attention to all kinds of details about how things looked. I looked forward to going shopping to buy clothes for work and for going out.
In Florida, everyone I knew, almost all people, looked forward to going out on Friday and Saturday night, to restaurants, bars, nightclubs, parties, movies, sporting events, concerts, road trips, and beach towns. Of course, everyone would get dressed for whatever they were doing or wherever they were going. It was fun and exciting to see and meet everyone who was out in the evening.
But let’s get back to Dickinson. Like I have written before, Dickinson is like the movie “Deliverance”, “Planet Of The Apes”, or “The Grapes Of Wrath”. God it makes me so fucking mad thinking about Dickinson, what it is like here. It’s like being in a fucking God damn prison! Ape creatures and land whales.
I thought about each of the places and everywhere that I routinely went in Dickinson, every place that I could think of, and all of the women in Dickinson looked exactly the same. They were overweight, sloppily dressed, not groomed, with big fat misshapen heads, and unattractive faces. They looked like Jack-o’-lanterns is what they looked like.
Jack-o’-lanterns with big fat misshapen heads and hideous faces, everywhere, all day, every day. In Dickinson, I don’t like going to the grocery store, and I especially don’t like going to convenience stores and gas stations. I hate going to Walmart, and I won’t go to bars. There is no place that I like going, and there is almost no possibility or likelihood that I will see or meet any young lady or woman in Dickinson that is enjoyable.
