Well, Dan’s world is starting to take shape and form. Been a rocky, rocky couple of months filled with highs and lows, kind of like having to relearn how to walk. Feel like everything is snapping into focus now. Spent 3 hrs skating around on my new long board and haven’t felt this content in a long while. Finally getting this living alone thing down, and it is really not that bad. Of course on the way to arriving at this realization I think I scared off a lot of potential new friends. Nothing to do but move on, and that isn’t bad at all.

Great 4th, maybe even the best ever. No matter what your feelings on the state of our democracy, our forefathers’ racist ways, etc… the Declaration of Independance is a truly wonderful thing. Of course, that has little to do with the fun, drunken state I was in. I guess it is just one man’s pursuit of happiness.

Well, Sunday night on this long holiday weekend and just a few thoughts to share.
On being single:
Constant adjustments and second guessing, but all in all an enjoyable experience. The biggest thing is getting used to living alone. I don’t mean it in a sad “I’m so lonely” kind of way. Just not having somebody else there is weird. I don’t know if it’s that there is nobody to turn to when you see something funny on TV, nobody to recount the day’s stories too. I think it is more than that. It was really hard just learning how to relax for some reason. A lot of times I would feel like I would have to be doing something constantly, I couldn’t just sit and watch a movie or anything like that.
On relationships:
Lots of second guessing here. Before Christie and I started dating 90% of my friends were girls. Now I feel like I have to put a disclaimer out there first: “I am asking for your phone number, but I am not trying to pick you up, just looking for a plutonic relationship.” Then I feel like more of a weirdo than when I started. People I have managed to stay in touch with through the years and are still around are seeing and hearing from me a lot more now, and I feel a little bad about that. I mean, I used to go 6 months without talking to Adam, and now I see him nearly every night. I am just thankful for that we’re still cool, god knows it would be a lot more lonely without him. As far as the nonplutonic relationships, it is nothing but confusion and major insecurities. What are the proper protocols, do I even care about protocol, am I coming off as a psycho, do I have to call, do I want to call, why do they keep calling, why won’t they call, etc… but it is getting better.
On tying this up:
Thanks to my pals, friends, acquaintances, and all that put up with and support me. I’m still learning the ropes and I truly appreciate all of your help along the way.
