Today has been rough. My "best" friend and I had plans for her to come over my house for lunch, but she was supposed to get back to me on the time and other details. I never heard from her. She has blown me off the last 3 times we tried to get together, and there were other issues I won't go into here, so this morning I ended our friendship. Then tonight I went to a birthday party of another friend, and I was feeling lonely so I dressed up, hoping to meet someone. But everyone at the party was either married or gay. I ended up drinking too much and leaving early to go home and wallow. I'm in the mood where I want to text every ex and tell him off. At least I didn't drink enough to do that. I did type one text, but I stopped myself right before hitting send. Ha, is it sad that I consider that evidence of my growth? Six months ago I wouldn't have been able to stop myself. Little steps of progress, I guess. I think I've been single for waaaay to long - it's making me crazy and bitter. I think I need some single friends my own age, but their hard to find. It's not like I can put a profile online or pick one up in a bar. How does one find friends as an adult, anyway?

I'm OCD about cooking. If I find something I like, I research to excess and then go to the ends of the earth in order to find all of the ingredients.

I just can't imagine going to an exotic restaurant all alone - I'd want to share the experience with someone . . . anyone.

Hey, props to all you guys who are comfortable doing that sort of thing though. I just can't . . . or maybe won't is a better word ;]

I guess I see it like this: if I want to go out to eat, or take a vacation, or try something new I'm not about to allow not having someone to go with me to hold me back from doing it.

I do a lot by myself. I just view dining out (other than lunch) as a social experience for some odd reason.
