Ask anyone who’s been here, picking up women in DC during the winter is brutal. The cold weather makes getting the energy to leave your apartment difficult. Dealing with the waiting for the metro or if you drive in finding parking even worse. Once there its slim pickings as most attractive women are taken and enjoying the cold weather inside with their significant others. At times the city can seem like a ghost town filled with lonely souls. But still staying in all weekend can lead to cabin fever. Everything is even worse if the night happens to be on a Holiday weekend when most people are out of town.
I met up with the rookie at the starting spot on H Street. It had been a few weeks since the last time we hung out. We got caught up downstairs and moved to the rooftop. There wasn’t much to work with when I spotted a tall girl that looked familiar. I remembered her from more than a year ago. Tyler gamed her and winged with him on her short friend who had short hair, green eyes and slightly like Dylan Ryder. Back then we ended up going back to the tall girl’s apartment then I extracted the Dylan Ryder look alike back to her place for some fooling around. But this time I noticed the short friend had longer hair and wasn’t sure if it was the same girl or not. Somehow both girls were part of this weird group both talking to a short black guy wearing read pants and a turtleneck who was with an Asian girl. The Asian girl didn’t appear to be with the black guy and bored. The black guy was attempting to hold court with all three women using the Asian girl as social proof buffer. Suddenly a white dude started talking to the tall girl. I waited patiently to see what would happen next. The tall girl seemed interested in the conversation. So now the black guy was talking to only the Asian girl and the short friend. Rookie was ready to go but I figured I go in and say hi to the short girl to see what would happen. I walked up to her and as I got closer I realized it was indeed the same girl I hooked up with from over a year ago.
“Excuse me you might not remember me but your friend is close with my boy Tyler we met over a year ago”
Her eyes light up, “oh hey, yeah I remember you, how’s it going”
“I just wanted say hi, I wasn’t trying to interrupt your little get together over here”
Smile on her face, “oh don’t worry about it, you’re not interrupting anything”
She completely turned her back to the weird couple and we had a quick little chit chat catching up on what each other have been up to. We even joked a little about the awkwardness of having hooked up for one night and then her hurrying me out of her room before her roommate woke up. I asked her if she was drinking anything, she said not at the moment, and then I invited her to come with me inside for a drink. She followed. She ordered a vodka gimlet me a Jack and coke. More talking, soon her tall friend came in with that tall guy she just met and apparently they were leaving. The short friend stayed with me. Half way through her drink we started dancing, and then we started making out. She said she lived in a studio on 14th street off Columbia Heights. I suggested we go back there. We leave, I take a $20 out of the ATM, and we get in a cab and go.
Once there she pours herself a glass of water, I open a beer without asking. We started making out she tells me I can do whatever I want. Her shirt comes off, so does mine, I go to pull her pants down and go down on her and she pulls me back up. I guess not. I suddenly really have to pee. So I go to the bathroom. When I come back out she tells me, “I think you should leave”. I wasn’t expecting that at all. I quickly came up with the excuse that I was semi stranded. I lied that my keys were at The Rookie’s apartment and he was already at home passed out. I told her it would cost $60 in cab fees to get back to my apartment and then come back to get the car in the morning. I said the metro opened in about two hours and if I crashed on the couch I would be good to go. She actually thinks about this for a few minutes before saying ok. “But you’re too big for my couch you can sleep in the bed with me.” I take off my pants only wearing boxers and crawl in. Before we go to sleep she tells me that I’m a lot bigger/ muscular than the last time she remembers (shout out to that swole life).
While we’re trying to sleep my boner is rock hard so I back away from her till my back is up against the wall. She backs her ass into me. I’m trying to sleep without making any moves, my left arm is around her waist. She grabs it and moves onto her left tigg with her hand over it. I try to move it away and she moans and puts it back on. Since it’s there I figure I might as well squeeze. Light squeezing brings on more moaning, this turns into her turning around and facing me for making out. With one hand I slide down and unzip her pants and insert a few fingers. She doesn’t stop me this time. So I say fuck it, in one graceful move I’m on top of her, I pull her jeans and panties down to her feet and expecting her to say something and give more resistance. That’s when she whispers, “Do you have a condom”. I move like a panther in the night to grab one and jump into bed before she changes her mind. I beat like a champ, longer than usual. In the winter when you don’t know when the next one is coming you appreciate it a little more.
During the night we sleep cuddling with her ass against my dick. Slowly though as we get closer to morning she pulls away. Around 9 she gets up to go put on her clothes, I take that as the sign for me to do the same. When she comes out of the bathroom I can tell it’s going to be that awkward we hooked up vibe going on and I wasn’t trying to stay around and find out. Before I left I asked if I should just wait to run into her a year from now or if she wanted to hangout before then? She told me, “let’s not make it a year from now, take my number”.
As I walked to my car I can’t help thinking how fucking weird girls can be. “I think you should leave”. WTF was that, the resistance, the fake let’s sleep only for her to practically force me to molest her under the covers? Why must they make it so fucking hard, why does it have to go right up to that rape line before they give up the bang? Why must it be so difficult? But honestly it doesn’t surprise me anymore. But imagine if I had taken her you should leave comment seriously, Imagine if I had left defeated with no number and a waste of my time. Sometimes getting laid in this city is like playing goddamn chess. The resistance will come, expect it, plan for it, keep calm, go forward.
