Happy Belated Valentine's Day! I hope whatever you did, if you are single, hibernated at home, pretended it wasn't Valentines Day, hung out with some single friends or took a date -- just think, it's over for another year!
At last minute, I was invited by my friend, Surfer, to go to what he was calling a "take back the night for singles" at a bar. I thought about going, even tho it goes against my normal Vday plan which is usually take care of me - in the form of getting a beauty treatment, ordering take-out and watching my favorite tv. I still stuck to my plan of "ME" b/c I told him I had to go the gym -- I really wanted to go. He was thinking the turnout was going to be low, considering his IM and email to me went out about 2 hrs from when people were going meet at the bar.
I got home and took a shower. At that point, he texted to tell me there were 4 people and begged me to come. I ate dinner and sat down on the couch - sort of thinking I would go - despite the fact it was freezing, Take care of me -- turned out to be sleeping. I feel asleep and woke at 10pm.
I kicked myself when I woke up b/c I really wished I had gone. It's not often I get to be in the company of only singles with the opportunity for there to be ones of the opposite sex!!
The next morning, Surfer IM'd me...."We missed you!" Apparently, about 20 people showed up bringing their single friend (that was part of the deal - you were supposed to bring a single friend) and others showed, but they didn't know who they were looking for to join this impromptu singles mingle. He then said, "there were DUDES!"
So, there you go.
Here's an article to provide some optimism....
