If you are dating are you still single
Even if it means they don’t want you, they’ll respect you for being honest. I opened my laptop and you-tubed “how to install a cat door” and learned that I needed a jig-saw.
Once you are comfortable enough to disclose your baggage to each other, hopefully it’s compatible and there is a lot of understanding for each other. Later, with my morning cuppa tea, I realized that my ex promised to put a cat door in for me. In Home Depot, an orange aproned Dave guided me to the cat door department and then back to the power tools. “Sure” I said not knowing what type of innuendo that was. Once at home, I spread everything out and, for the first time in my life, actually followed the instructions.
Eating out will force me to go home, take a shower, dress up and sit in a restaurant by myself, whereas, going to the supermarket would require fighting the masses, cooking and eating late but I’d be able to wear sweatpants. As I sat on my couch with one cat reaching over my arm for my salmon and the other sleeping next to me, I realized that I had done this for the last 6 nights in a row and something had to change.
Fortunately, I have a close friend who doesn’t drink and they came and got me home safely. Secondly, become a regular by picking a certain restaurant on a certain night.
Maybe Thursdays are jazz night, and you’ll meet people who love jazz.
Or, Friday night has a high turn over of people and you’ll meet a variety. Being surrounded by class and beauty will make you feel special and ALWAYS eat at the bar.
Be friendly, get to know them personally and tip them very well.
I have lost track of how many times a bartender has either come to my rescue to move a long an annoying person or kept me company when the bar was empty.
I knew he’d listened to our conversation a little bit, so I asked him “what do you look for in a smart single girl who you’d like to date? I ruffled my pixie hair and got the feeling he didn’t really want to talk to me. ” I called to our bartender, “what advice would you give to smart, single girls? Without missing a beat he asked “other than don’t drink in bars? If they tell me, ‘I don’t know, Papa,” I tell them they shouldn’t date him. At the top of the hour, Louie led everyone in the bar with a Holiday toast and we raised our shots, coffees, waters, beers and martinis in a festive flourish. It also made me evaluate what I actually like about being single: I can do what I want, when I want without consideration for someone else. Most baggage is sensitive so shouldn’t be discussed until you feel sure this is going into a relationship but never lie.
