Alone.

That's how I spent the whole weekend. My dad dropped me off at my car Friday night after the game, and I spent the rest of the time alone. This is a good thing, I think.

I had fallen so out of practice at being alone that I had been obsessively surrounding myself with people the past month or so. This, too was a good thing, something i needed, people around me.

But this weekend I was alone, and I think I handled it pretty well. Alone can be just as safe as together. There is another frontier I need to take on later however.

Not now, but at some point soon I need to try meeting people somewhere other than my wife or at work. I've never really met people in social situations, its not a skill I've developed, nor really had a chance to develop. To a certain extent I'm talking about women, but not completely.

I've lately had smashing success at this on the internet, just look at all the diverse people who are reading (or skimming, or skipping over because its a long post) this right now. I hope I can try this in real life too sometime, hopefully not too long from now.
