The point of dating

I think it's important to point out that dating is not about making new friends. At least not in my case. If I was trying to make new friends, I'd call it making new friends. Also, I don't need to look for new friends. I meet lots of people every day. Friendships develop naturally. I have enough friends and I don't need to go through some special dating process to add new ones. If I'm asking someone out, it's because I see a possibility of sex and romance. Sure, it may not work out. But sex and romance is the goal of dating. If you are dating to make friends, you are kind of missing the point.

    Turns out my insurance is cut off at midnight tonight, not the end of the month. In a way, that's a good thing. Now I'll move my appointment…

    A week off, but tomorrow I head to the home office for a week there.
