I’m not beautiful, I’m not rich, I have some baggage. But I’m not at like the guys described in this article.If anything, I’m damned near the opposite, and if what the women interviewed for the story have to say about themselves is true, I should, at least in theory, have had some luck landing at least the occasional first date. It’s from May 2014 – interestingly enough, I lived there then. The main thrust is there are a lot of guys in the city – more than there are women – and they have good jobs and plenty of money. As technologist and writer Jeff Reifman pointed out in a post titled “You’ve Got Male: Amazon’s Growth Impacting Seattle Dating Scene,” Amazon …has had a huge, awful impact on Seattle’s dating scene.When I experimented taking half tablets of the samples, I had stronger erections but I wasn’t more turned on.I’d also been having low back and hip pain, so I went to see a physical therapist with a specialty in pelvic issues to rule out spinal and neurological problems.She, in turn, pointed me to a naturopath who specializes in sexual medicine1, but I’d been so bummed out by my experience with the urologist, I was reluctant to make an appointment.
Though I was relieved to have avoided a prostate exam, I left dismayed and a bit depressed.
This was the specialist my doctor had suggested but I left feeling unsure about asking the medical community for help with these symptoms again.
