Translation: "An old boyfriend cheated on me, and/or I have 'daddy issues' from childhood, so I will carry bitter and warped views until I reach my late-30's or early-40's and get over it".
LOL am i that readable?

i have been told that i have daddy issues, which of course i dont believe.

Heh, I didn't mean to stray from the lighthearted and get too personal... but it is funny how that works.  If parents divorce, or never marry, or daddy walks away for any other reason, it's amazing how it affects guys and girls differently.  A guy will go through an angry and rebellious period as a teenager, but will then eventually find some male role model (baseball coach, whatever) as a substitute and rebound just fine.  A girl, on the other hand... WHOA, watch out!  She can do therapy every day for decades, and she'll still have psycho trust issues for the rest of her life (and probably be wild in bed too, but that's another discussion).

I travel internationally for work, to developing countries. I travel as part of a team, and we stay in the same hotel. They buy sex there, and I see the women coming out or going in to the rooms.

Maybe it's the guy's distant cousin, who's stopping by to visit while he's in the area.  You don't know...

You naughty lad. You clearly skipped over some relevant posts, didn't you?

I click "Preview" in the middle of writing a post, and see "Warning - while you were reading 48 new replies have been posted.  You may wish to review your post".  This is over the span of 5 minutes.  Screw that, you need to be using IM if you want me to do this real-time stuff.

that's a sad view of men  :-\
more like reality...

Oh puh-leeeeze... women fool around at least as much as men (probably more).  Their motivations and patterns of execution are different, but the quantity of cheating is at least as great.

The marrieds that I work with sleep with prostitutes when we're on a trip together. Does that count?
are you still in England?
In DC. I live in DC. I just went to England every so often to visit my SO

Well, since you live in DC... are you literally using the word "prostitutes" in its traditional sense, or are you just speaking metaphorically about lobbyists and government bureaucrats?

Also, how DO you know the covert sex habits of your colleagues?  I've walked the straight and narrow as a married man, but I did fool around on girlfriends a bit as an undergrad.  The other girls in this case were mere "civilians", and I usually got away with it neat and clean.  How do guys let their co-workers bust them hooking up with "pros", when 99% of a professional's job is simply being discreet?!?

Heh.  When we're driving along or going shopping, and pass by a jogger or shopper, I'll frequently play a little game with my wife.  I make a big outlandish show out of craning my neck, or even moving her out of the way, as if to get a better look at the other person's ass.  My wife always rolls her eyes and laughs, telling me what a nut I am. 

In reality though, I'm just totally and deliberately leering at the other chick's ass!  It's much easier to "hide in plain sight" than it is to be all sneaky and dishonest.

I'm in a sucky situation myself.  I only applied to reach schools (like 15-60% on chiashu) because I really didn't want to settle.  I figured if I don't get in to a school that I really want to go to, then what's the point, and I'll just try again next year instead.  Here's the deal, though: I've been accepted at 0 schools.  I'm on numerous waitlists, and it's looking shaky for me.  I'd give myself about a 40-50% chance of getting in at one of my remaining 4 schools.  I want to make plans for next year, and had in fact made plans to go to Europe this summer before law school started.  I know... I know... bad idea about the Europe thing now that I haven't gotten in anywhere.
I wish I would have just studied for the LSAT the first time around.  In any case, what do you guys think?

I don't know you at all, so I can't judge you or read your mind with any degree of accuracy.  However, based on not studying for the LSAT and applying ONLY to reach schools, it sounds like you weren't terribly motivated to go to law school (this year, at least).  I hate to be doom n' gloom, but June creeping up and you not having a single safety school on your list, your odds of being accepted somewhere this fall are WAY below "40-50%".  If you really don't want to settle, the obvious move is to put a more serious LSAT-prep plan together and get ready for the next cycle.

I think the matter of your summer plans is altogether separate from law school.  I've been out in the workforce for over a decade now, and I average a one-week vacation every three years.  The ability to just take off to Europe for a summer represents a very, VERY narrow window of opportunity in your life.  I suggest you take advantage of that opportunity while you can... later in life you are more likely to regret NOT doing so, trust me.  It doesn't sound like you currently have a "dream job" anyway, or wouldn't be able to find a job just a good once you get back (you may even be able to keep the same gig).  Honor your word to your friend, take the opportunity while it's there for the taking, and just have a boring and restful in-town summer next year before law or business school.

I have no accent either.  My parents were both Irish immigrants, and I grew up in the South (eastern North Carolina), so I think the influence of the two completely cancelled each other out.

What part of eastern NC did you grow up in?  I'm heading out to the Chowan College campus in  Murfeesboro for a Quaker yearly meeting (religious thing) this summer, and am trying to wrap my brain around the notion of a 10-hour drive.  With the right audio books-on-tape, I could probably learn Portugese along the way.

You forgot Canadian. Don't worry though, 'real' canadian is indistinguishable from american northeast. The "Canadian" you've heard of is probably already under the Minnesota umbrella, which suitably has no votes

I don't know about "hot" in the sense that a Latin accent can be, but I think that a heavy Canadian accent is adorable as hell in a girl.  When I see a Canadian chick standing there in her hockey jersey, pronouncing "about" as "aboot" and punctuating sentences with "eh?", I just want to give her a big hug and snuggle!  (and then go bang the Latina chick)
