Y'all here at D1P have known Brazil201 (who shall be referred to by his name, Alex) for quite some time. The general consensus is that he's an insufferable, egotistical dickhead from Jersey. While I already shared this same opinion of him prior to meeting him in person, you'll be glad (or disappointed) to know that it carries over to his real persona, as well. Apparently, some of y'all have been invited to hang with him in persona nd have declined the invites for various reasons. I've declined a few in the past myself, but figured I'd finally give it a shot. Maybe he'll be more tolerable in person, I thought to myself. Besides, I was already in the area for work, so I gave it a go.
We met up at his favorite bar, Bar None, around 9:40. It's not my kinda hangout, but it's not as if he'd want to make a trek to someplace I preferred. Besides, this was like Animal Planet for me—getting to observe the tanned douche in his natural habitat. Prior to meeting me, he had a job interview in the city and went to a FIT (Fashion Institute of Technology) speed dating thing. So, at least I had some topics to bring up to start conversations. While we drank our drinks (which were actually fairly good, mind you), we got to chatting about how his job interview and speed dating went. He answered plainly. So far, he was pretty tolerable. Had no complaints besides my previous opinion of him.
After a few drinks, he gets a text from a girl he met at the speed dating thing. We bar hop over to Black Door on W 26th and meet her and her friend. Despite being underage (19) at a bar, they're pretty cool girls. They can both do much better than Alex. They found out soon enough. While he may have introduced himself to the girl (who we'll refer to as Eve) as "Asshole Alex," she didn't think he'd be that bad. Her friend (who'll be Brie) already didn't like him from the speed dating rounds. We talk for a bit and Alex keep's going for Eve's hands, which she's fairly okay with. "It's just hand-holding," she said to me later. We'll skip the next half hour as it's more of the same and get to where we make our way to a third bar, Hibernia.
As we make our way down streets and subway tunnels, Brie and I lag behind, both intentionally to observe and unintentionally as Brie decided to wear heels and didn't change into something more comfortable. This is when I make it very clear that this is my first time meeting him in person and I can't actually stand him. I couldn't let their opinion of me be tarnished because they think I'm best friends with this kid, after all. Had to explain the whole Discord thing, but she understood. During this time, Alex and Eve are up ahead holding hands. Unbeknownst to me and Brie, Eve was already loathing this dude she thought was a sleaze. He'd made several attempts to kiss her by grabbing her face already, and she rejected him each time. He'd made racist comments about the black people at the earlier speed dating event, asking Eve if she had "jungle fever" and telling her that they sounded like they were from Kenya. She's a person of color herself, and said (later) that it just offended her even more. For a dude that brags on discord about how much he gets laid, it's refreshing to see that there are some chicks who don't fall for that. (Small rant: this is most likely because he doesn't have to have any face to face interaction with people he meets on Tinder prior to their starbucks meetup and alleged sex. Spending a half hour of just interacting with him without sex as the topic would most likely dissuade most women he encounters)
We finally get to the bar, get our drinks, and we talk some more. The usual. The girls and I get to be more familiar with one another while Alex just kinda sits back in the chair, in his unnecessarily tight clothes and iPhone in hand. By now, he was pouty as he knew he most likely wasn't getting laid that night. Skip forward to when we leave the bar and head to the trains. Normally, I'd just part ways and head home since I had the longest commute, but I was curious to what Eve thought about Alex. We hop on the train, Alex gets off a few stops later, and we get to talking without him. Eve loathed Alex. She gave him a single kiss earlier just so he'd stop trying, but proceeded to block his number and unfollow him on Instagram and Snapchat. In addition to the racist comments I mentioned earlier, he lied about his age, claiming he was 22 instead of 24. Brie and I told Eve how I knew Alex so she'd know I don't normally associate myself with insufferable guys from Jersey. All in all, I had a fun night. Alex, on the other hand, probably didn't.
I guess that's all for now. I might try this again one day.
