New York men are unworthy

One of the joys of being married in New York is that you get to hear war stories from the front lines of dating in the City. What's not so great is hearing how pathetic the entire cadre of single men seems to be. Sadly, I have to agree based on what I've seen.

Case in point, I was walking through Union Square the other night with a friend of mine and she was telling me about a guy she had been seeing and his strange hang-ups. One example she used was that he kept all of his many fine books in some kind of individual wrapper (not the factory shrink-wrap) to keep them pristine. I forgot to ask if she was allowed to touch them but the inevitable next question did arise: did he wear a condom? Of course not! and he was equally adamant about that. Ex-boyfriend now.
