I forgot about the mentality of the single man. I was in a committed relationship for so long that I completely forgot all the nuances of daily bachelor life. I'm not going to say meeting someone consumes me, but it certainly affects my thought patterns and decisions.
When I plan my weekends, I don't necessarily have to meet someone, but I do have to put myself in a position where I could conceivably do so. There's also that pressure on you when you're out, where you know that if you don't approach the person you're attracted to in the room, you're going to regret it. Even if you strike out miserably, you gotta go for it; you gotta fish with a big net.
It can be a little stressful, but it can also be a lot of fun if you have a few good things going on. Right now, there are options, I'd say, but some options are complicated.
The trick is getting in the groove with this sort of lifestyle again so that I can settle in and get more work done in terms of my career and my writing like I know I can. I know I get a lot more done as a single man once the dust settles, and I see a lot of great work down the pike for Bachelor Ken.
