I am loving the whole not dating thing at the moment. I am loving the whole not even worrying about dating at the moment. In fact, I think I like it so much because...
-I don't have to worry about making a good first impression.
-I can get back to a routine of working, working out, writing, and doing my own thing.
-Dating is hazardous to the waistline. I don't have to worry about that at all.
-No more wondering, "Why?"
-I can spend more time with friends.
-I can spend more time focusing on myself, and not worrying about what someone else is thinking.
-Less fucking pressure.
-I am saving a shit ton of money. Enough in fact that I may go car shopping, or SUV shopping rather.
-I can also focus more time on something that I have always wanted to do: brew my own beer.
-I can do whatever the fuck I want. If I want to be lazy, I can be lazy. If I want to work on my house, I can work on my house. If I want to work on my health, I can work on my health. I don't have to explain my actions to anyone. I don't have to tell any stories. I do not have to feel embarrassed if I choose to relax on a weekend as opposed to going out all the time and doing a shit ton of activities.
Sure, it can be lonely. But feeling lonely sometimes is better than feeling worthless.
