In 1992, when I became single for the first time in several years, I promised myself that I would date three (3) people before coming involved with anyone seriously. I did not fulfill that promise. Perhaps I would have made other choices had I done so. But one never knows, does one?
However, I would like y'all to know that this time, I will have fulfilled that promise by Monday evening. I will have gone on at least one date with three different people.
I don't think this is somehow a magic number, which will somehow release me from all my personal foibles and turn me into this incredibly healthy individual. But I think it's a very good start.
Next step: learning to flirt with women I meet in public places.
