I was already so lonely in Austin that this feeling isn’t any worse. (I just chuckled.)
It’s really pretty here and people are much nicer. I recently spoke to a sweet friend in Austin and he commented that I sounded happy. I really was ready to leave Austin. I’m very, very much at peace with that decision.
As for my unending dating debacles, whatevs. Ya know? I’m blessed that the few creeps I have managed to do a poor job of weeding out and ended up meeting in person, showed their colors quickly. I’ve really never felt unsafe, though I’ve had 2 or 3 encounters that I wish I’d just kicked the guys in the groin. (And I NEVER think or say that. But, yeah, they would have deserved it.)
Anyhoo…thanks for being on my side, Jonathan Greene!
