After my friend from the left coast Lil’Devil Mama put herself bravely back into the dating pool, I decided to give it yet another shot. Once again, I found myself not really wanting to respond to the emails I was getting. I was having conversations with a couple of guys but I didn’t have any desire to take it any further than online friends to talk to. I sent them each an email explaining that I had realized that I needed to work on me so I was going to take my profile down. I wanted to make sure that they didn’t think that I had just lost interest in them, that’s a not so great feeling.
Then, today I found the coolest blogger chick at Mely Speaks and she has created the best project ever, The Fabulously Single Project. What an amazing idea!!! What a perfect way to show society that it’s ok to be single!! There will be challenges and the first one I’m already having a smidge of trouble with:
“Go out to lunch or dinner, IN A RESTAURANT, by yourself”
Now I have no problem eating in a restaurant by myself. I’ve done it before and have been perfectly fine with it. It’s the extras that I’m not sure I can do:
You are also not allowed to:
A) Bring a book, newspaper, or magazine to read during your meal
B) Tweet, text, surf the web, do work or make any calls via your cell, or laptops for that matter.
B is no problem for me but I have always had a book with me when eating solo. I love to read. It’s my favorite “for me” thing to do. It would feel like a waste of very valuable reading time. Or maybe I’m just too chicken to just sit with myself out in public. I can do it in my living room while meditating easily. It’s not that I’m afraid of my own thoughts, I just feel like it wouldn’t be meditative for me….just wasting time…..
