The worst thing, for me, about being single is having to find dates for events.

I have four upcoming events — fashion, art, music, and my own party.

What inevitably happens is I will end up with four potential dates for each and then will go alone.

Married life and life with BFD (and to significantly lesser extent LP) were easier because their unavailability meant I could have a platonic escort. But now if I invite a man, there are expectations.

I often try to clarify such expectations ahead of time, which leads to predate awkwardness, but an easy situation on the date.

Anyone free on Friday?
