All this love and no one to give it to

Other than dating in Jan/Feb and then a very little bit in the summer, I’ve been single this whole year. I hate not knowing how long it will be until I can actually start dating (safely) for real again. I’ve been single for almost all of my 20s so it’s not that I’m the type that needs to be in a relationship. I’ve just found myself pretty lonely these days. I know I’m a good girlfriend and I really put my all in being supportive and loving. I’ve never been able to find someone that cares about me in return but I’m really looking forward to the day I do.

I think I’m psychic

Or at least have some abilities. People usually get jealous or find it intimidating. They’re always wondering how I seem to know everything. They want my advice all the time but then I start to feel sort of used.

Spending way too much time

wondering about the I Saw You people. Do they ever get together? Or are they just a bunch of lonely people desperately looking for connections in all the wrong places? Building up a casual comment or professional smile into something too big. I only wonder because I've been guilty of this - thinking someone really liked me, but they were just being polite. I hope those people are more aware and realistic than I was.

Misunderstanding?

I bumped into someone I thought was a friend today who made an excuse not to stop and chat. When she walked away she said “see you around.” I know what that means. It’s too bad people don’t talk things out anymore. Vanishing without a trace is somehow easier than having a conversation. I don’t get it.

From Personal Experience

Kitten formula tastes disgusting. I also don't like carrots, but that's beside the point.

It's a minefield out there

I've learned only to make comments to people you have actually met outside of the Internet. Also to actually read articles before commenting on them. You never know what sort of drama you will receive.

Drinking

It’s weird that I miss someone so much when I’m drunk but when I wake up in the morning I’m disgusted. I think my brain misses aspects that seem devastating when I’m drunk but when I’m sober those aspects seem minuscule compared to the big picture. Time to lay off the booze.

Hollywood North

I've been making fake backgrounds for movies and TV for so long that it's all I see. It's like knowing the magicians secret, you can't enjoy the magic show.

Good god

Looked at myself in the mirror. 53 years old and fat. I got so ugly.
