When single in the Hamptons, it is best to avoid that repulsive commentary from ‘peanut galleries’ of cute-well dressed guys patiently sitting on perches (wooden benches) throughout the quaint villages of South Hampton, Bridgehampton, East Hampton, Amagansett, and Montauk; for they are overly anxious to pick up ‘hot chicks’ in a timely fashion. The other end of the spectrum highlights extravagant men who act as ‘Kings’, flying models by the dozens on private jets, straight to their estate in East Hampton. Both over-the-top characters are willing and ready to do whatever, whenever they feel like it, without calculating what impact it will have upon their ‘weekend crush.’ Women appear to quickly become spellbound when receiving attention from both types of men, anxiously socializing under false pretenses that ‘this could be the one.’
‘Note to self’… everywhere in the Hamptons is a pickup spot and everyone is always looking. If one ignores the media’s obsession with glorifying this falsely portrayed, glamorous life, one would see that human behavior in the mating game is universally bizarre. We are all attracted to one another for a variety of reasons; lust, loneliness, attraction, passion, sex, money, revenge, convenience…and the list continues. Too often, New Yorkers come across as overwhelming, obsessive, energized bunnies (and rightfully so, given fast paced city life), frantic to seek immediate gratification through temporary happiness. Obviously these short lived ‘heart skips a beat’ feelings run the risk of experiencing an undesired result of the one-night fling, assuming that a one night fling is not ‘her’ objective.
