I am an older single. Isn’t it simply hilarious how one day you’re dancing on the tables at the hottest nightclub or trendiest bar, fast forward a little bit and when someone suggests heading down to the pub/club/bar you look at them as if they sprouted another head? WHAT HAPPENED!? When did I become “boring?” Don’t get me wrong, I still love going out, I just don’t like going out to the places that 20 something and early 30 something me used to enjoy. The thought of drunken bodies bumping into me, loud music making it impossible to speak to anyone is a downright nightmare. Are there special brain cells responsible for the enjoyment of this now nightmare situation, that slowly die as you get older? If that is the case, mine are well and truly deceased. Rest in peace (and quiet.)
Unfortunately as I discovered how my social tastes have changed, outlets for my needs were nowhere to be found. Yes I have friends… married or attached friends with their own agendas and families. Sometimes you really just want to hang out with other singles. I discovered that PE literally had nothing up to standard for singles. There are PLENTY of things to do around here, however, no one to always do it with. How do you comfortably go somewhere and actually meet new people. How do you know those people are single too? Do you just walk up to someone in a restaurant/pub/cinema and say “Hi, please be my friend?”… I somehow don’t think so. So what do you do?
I found myself sitting at home week in and week out, month after month. And as much as I do enjoy my own company and being at home, I do have a lively social side that loves getting out to mingle, chat and have fun. But like hell am I going out to the only places available where there will just be people far younger than me, or mostly couples. I personally don’t want to meet people through those avenues.
So I took the bulls by the horns and created my own avenues. Surely I couldn’t be the only older single feeling the way I do? I started getting extremely excited at the prospect of injecting some flair to the social scene for us singles. And that’s exactly what I started doing…
