Taking a class

In an effort to get out of the house and do something (anything), I decided to take a class at the local college. It occurred to me that I don’t get out as much as I should. Getting rejected a few weeks ago has not made getting back on that horse any easier. However, I now realize that I’ve been getting on the wrong horse all the time.

No more high pressure dating situations for this guy. I have decided to simply try and mingle a little more and expand my circle of friends. With any luck, the dating thing should take care of itself.

The key here is to diffuse the situation. I’m getting carried away and obsessing about the fact that I can’t get a date. I need a time-out, so to speak.

The course I’m taking is web design - and I can honestly say that I’m going in with the most honorable intentions. As I mentioned in an earlier post, it would be kind of low to simply do this to meet women. It’s actually something I can use in my business, and in the worse possible case, I’ll walk away with something. I really needed to learn a little more about web design anyway.

The bottom line: It will still be interesting even if I don’t meet a single person.

My first class will be next Tuesday, and then every Tuesday and Thursday until April. I’m really looking forward to this. Actually, for me, anything internet related is interesting.

I don’t know what to expect and there might be a little anticipatory anxiety leading up to the first session, however, after that, things should settle down. I’m hoping that there is a good mix of people and that I fit in. Oh well, time will tell.

After torturing myself with the singles bars, it will be a refreshing change to simply meet real people for once without having that whole dating thing hanging over our heads.

For the first time in a long time, I feel optimistic.
