Male egos turning decent people into idiots (Josh.0 Edit)

EDIT: tl;dr:

I'm going on a yoga trip. I didn't think I'd be the only guy, but I recently found out that somehow I am. I'm obviously happy about this but also terrified at the prospect of coming across the wrong way, as my yoga studio has a lot of male yogis but no other ones signed up for the trip.

Now enjoy the rest. You're welcome, TDC.

If you can, go. Enjoy yourself, and if you get doing different things than yoga with one or more of these ladies, well, have fun.

This seems like a once in a lifetime opportunity. Don't be indecisive about it.

No single gay dudes? Sorry for your loss.

But seriously, traveling with 30 single women sounds miserable. I would bail. This reeks of you doing something on this trip the jeopardizes your ability to continue doing yoga at this place. Way too much shitting where you eat potential. Plus, yoga chicks in Italy? That’s a lot of hair.

You got into the trip with totally honorable intentions. It would be a real shame to bail on an experience that you really wanted to have just because you’re worried about what other people will think of you. There might be a couple of awkward moments or comments from someone, but are you willing to pass up this trip to avoid them?

I'm going to generalize here, but most ladies I know who are so into yoga that they would go on a studio retreat to Italy are laid back enough that they don't think you're a creeper. Plus you're a part of the studio, I'm sure you'll be recognized there as someone with a shared interest. You aren't a guy randomly lurking outside of a studio taking pics of various poses (that's the term, right?) It's worth a joke or two at the beginning, then a great time doing what you love with what I'm sure is a bunch of attractive ladies. If there's a Facebook group, you can even start with a casual joke a few days before you leave.

Sounds like a great trip for you even if nothing happens with anyone, which surely won't be the case.

But what if he is a creeper? Asking for a friend.

Most of the women I’ve encountered at yoga are right on the edge of psycho and yoga keeps them from going over that edge.

I’d go on the trip, Italian women are extremely beautiful. But most of the 20s and 30s girls are out with their parents so you’ll need to talk to parents, “can I marry your daughter” worked well for me when I was there

If he is, then I expect pictures posted to the thread.

I think Josh’s account has been hacked by a beta male.

If he can get a few 3s and a 5 to his room, that’s way over 10

Not sure this is accurate after reading your post

This thread is going exactly as I thought it would and once again TDC proves its worth and has not let me down at all. Jack, Mersh, Mike: well done.

Look, there’s no question this is pretty much a dream come true. But there’s a fine line to be walked here to make this whole thing (which is a full WEEK) go off without a hitch. I know what they’re thinking and they *all* know what I’m thinking.

Do I just play the sexually ambiguous card for a few days so I don’t come across as too single and straight too soon?

And if I can get a good group pic I will absolutely post it here, because there’s no way it would be anything but fantastic.

I mean, that’s probably the best case scenario. However, all names have been changed to protect the innocent.

Just don’t act desperate or thirsty. Don’t act surprised if they start paying attention to you. Jealousy makes women super horny, you could be 900 lbs and it’d be the same thing with that group dynamic. Plus you didn’t go on the trip for that reason anyway

The one time I met Josh he was wearing a tight Captain American tank top slamming drinks in the VIP lounge. He was born for this.

I just remembered this. After bopping in and out of the lounge for drinks during the shitty songs, we sent a pic of us flipping the bird to Spence. His response is priceless. That was a good night
