Howie gave us all the perfect example and scenario in which to start up a conversation IN REAL LIFE - and in true Seattle form, it involves Starbucks."Next time you're in line at Starbucks, guys - turn to the women next to you and say 'Should I get a cake pop? The key to happiness, in Howie's opinion, is cake pops.
But as he explains more about the scenario, it actually makes sense."You're not asking her if she wants a cake pop, you're asking her to help make a decision for you," he explains.
The room was filled with a mixture of singles and supportive friends, ages ranging from early 20s to late 40s."Every city is different," said Howie.
"It's like Chicago, without all the bad stuff."But everyone was there on this specific night to talk about Seattle. They're scared, because there are a lot of smart women here, and there are a lot of beautiful women here."Howie thinks it's not necessarily about rejection, but that they're afraid everyone else will see them fail. "Which is on some level is weirdly narcissistic, because nobody is paying any attention to you! They were nerds in high school and they got laughed at and picked on and it never goes away."To prove his point, Howie criss-crosses the room, asking the men and women in attendance what they think the biggest challenge with dating in Seattle is. It makes you try and do too much - it's like they're trying to solve the puzzle before even interacting.""It's not like that in Charlotte," he said. Remember, these are just Howie's assessments based on nine shows he's done here, and talking to the men and women who come to his shows.
And buckle up, ladies and gents - because Howie does not have a lot of great things to say about us. In fact, when I asked him what the number one challenge of dating in Seattle was, he said it was the passive men. Answers ranges from: Howie said most of these are the same in each city, but one thing he has always noticed about Seattle men particular, that he doesn't see other places - is their passivity. "It's like 'I'll have a beer and I'll talk to her and we'll just have a good time'. It might ring true with a lot of single women out there, but it may not!
