At what point do you start dating,
having relationships, not because youíre looking
for ďthe OneĒ but because you socially have nothing better to do,
and at what point should it be reasonable to expect
that the other at least understands,
if not in fact is playing in the same game?

I don't date. I find it a waste of time, no one seems to interest me anyway. The girls I find interesting aren't into dating either.

John?

I know I have rudely pulled yer leg many times in the past, but I'd like to give you a serious answer to your question.

I could be wrong, but you've always struck me as a lonely sort of person, and I'd really like to think that you are truly willing to go out there and just allow someone to see "you". (If I've got you pegged all wrong, I apologize in advance.)

But I know that if I was on a date with someone I could tell if his mind was elsewhere. A date...this should be approached with some enthusiasm, yes? Not like, um, you are channel surfing and have found the least objectionable option.

Are you doing this because you feel like it's something you are "supposed" to do?

If that's the case, it's never going to turn out well.

(I could be wrong on that--I have been wrong many times--but you know that.)



Why don't you just take it easy?

I find nearly everyone fascinating. Just go out--dance, maybe? Or go play some skee ball, and okay, because I like you (I know it doesn't show but I do) I will give you the can't miss first date scenario:

A Renaissance Festival

Seriously, it works.

Go OUT there, John.

Do something....impulsive.



YEAH

bounce a little! Let something unexpected into your life!

and good luck!

"because you socially have nothing better to do"

Impossible!

SB,

Youíre wrong.  The poetry derives from a
deliberate mood which I can bring on with,
for example, the soundtrack from ďThe Thin Red LineĒ.  
The rest of the time Iím too in love with still being
alive, (which I see almost as separate from myself), to feel alone.

This question arose from my reading ďThe Last LionĒ
and seeing parallels between the social world of the well to do
then and our own.   I am particularly concerned
for a best friend who for all his years is still vulnerable
to the sirenís call.  

It is one thing when young, but beyond a certain age,
35 or so, I think it difficult to believe anyone
so naÔve or stupid as to be a genuine victim; no one
is being seduced from a convent or monastery
which is quite different from the disappointment
or despair that might come from some one not dancing
to plan.

I've been wrong before--so it's not a problem. I would still be tickled to see you chucking back a few shots, maybe jump in a fountain or two, have a sugar fight a cafe du monde, for just shake yer boody to some groovy jams at Tipitina's.

I happen to think it would be good for your soul.

A little balance, that's all. Put some um, "bounce" in yer suspenders.
