I've learned to pamper myself, (buying flowers, massages, etc)
Nothing wrong with it.
Geez, what haven't I done alone?
When I first got divorced my "never married sister of good intention" said you should go to a bar...so off I go like an idiot and the only three guys I attract are: two over 60, one of which said "I'd like to see you ..."; the second just wanted to show me how his smart phone played videos of all his favorite rock songs; and another 45ish who told me so rehearsed sob story about just returning from a funeral, please.
So after that disappointing baptism by depression, I go nearly everywhere by myself and have as much fun as is to be had.
I've seen Flight (very fleshy first 5-7 min and a nasty crack shot of Denzel, ew). Saw Skyfall with a hiking group, way too long but Adele pulls off the theme song beautifully!
