So yes. I had a blind date, my first. And it will be a long time before I have any others. I won't go into any incriminating details except to say that it was many hours of torture. Like being at a party full of people you don't connect with (like investment bankers or some such thing) where you can't leave and you have to make banal conversation just to keep yourself from falling asleep in the punch bowl. I'm sick of dates: of saying the same things, worrying about who pays for what, sussing out if I like him enough to give him a goodnight kiss, if I want to see him again, etc. I want to be single for a while, a long while. As Candace Bushnell says, "Better alone than badly accompanied."
