So you are having trouble getting a date? Or a date you don't later regret? Why not "date yourself?" I learned to do this. Rather than sit around missing out on things because I do not have a date, I decided that I can take myself out and see how it goes. I first went to a movie by myself. Then it was plays, museums, parks and I found in all this that I could enjoy being with me. I could decide to eat when and where and what I wanted. I did not have to negotiate or compromise. I could see as much of a museum as I wanted, and then leave. I could walk home from events and not worry about someone else getting tired and needing to ride. I learned all about public transportation. I did not need a car for my date. And I could change my plans spontaneously. I became a pretty good date for me. If I truly believed that the Spirit or Power or Ultimate Reality is always with me, than I am not really alone, and I can stop anywhere and meditate as the energy invites me. All this keeps me from isolating. It gets me out and among people. I can chat with someone at one of these events if I feel so moved. Find out if you like yourself. Take yourself out for dates.
