Last weekend, I enjoyed a "date-free" weekend and surprisingly I had a ton of fun! Yes, I had more fun exploring two nearby towns and hitting up several Goodwill and thrift shops hunting for treasures for my home and classroom than I did meeting virtual strangers who said they'd "be in touch" before vanishing. I realize that while I enjoy the social aspect of meeting people, I despise the pressure that comes along with a "cold" meeting. Think about it. A profile never tells the whole story and what you meet is probably not what you've conjured up in your mind.
I'll stop rambling enough to get to the point. A hiatus can feel damn good.
