Default Single and Dating

Hey Friends,

Ive got all this enrgy, and I want to get out and do some fun stuff! The problem is--I don't know anyone who wants to go dancing and kareoke singing. My fat friends won't come, and my married friends . . .well they are married.
I've singed up for a dating service, but I'm not getting any action there. I'm sure I need better pics. All of my photos look like I'm being mugged.

Really, I don't see too much on here about singels and dating. Anyone have anything to add?

Tonight I am going on my own--big risk, but I do know someone who does Kareoke, so that should help.

Single people,
What did/do you do when the energy kicks up?

B

Alt Weight Loss Surgery Insurance
Yes, you can often get insurance cover for your Weight Loss Surgery.
Our own Craig "Big-T" Thompson has been there and done that, and he's written an e-book about it.

If you lived in SoCal, even though I am married, I would come with you to karaoke.

Ask your married friends to join you. We like having fun too, ya know. They won't be competition for any single guys coming to the table, either.

You are right, I need to ask out some married friends. I have to get creative here. I changed my life around so completely this year: new me, new job, new mom (16 year old nephew), new person really--I'm begining to wish I had more action in my radar.

I'm dying to get out tonight.

I love this song called Twilight by Vanessa Carlson, because I identify so strongly with the transformation of the person singing it.
"I was stained, by a role, in a day not my own/ . . . . I always knew what was right / I just didn't know that I might / Peel away and choose to see with such a different site / And I will never see the sky the same way and / I will learn to say goodbye to yesterday and / I will never cease to fly if held down and / I will always reach too high cause I've seen, Twilight." Twilight is when the sun's rays are visible over the horizon. So this just fits with my life right now.

I'm seeing another future--not one where I get a new blood pressure medicine, but one where I get to make plans for the future. This includes my friends, many of whom are depressed or battling depression. I'm not appologizing for it either. I'm learning to say good-bye to yesterday as I reach for the future me.

Who-ever-or-whatever-that is.

Translation---I want to play and celebrate life not sit home another Saturday night.

Well if I was closer I would come dance ( not much rhythm though) and sing Karaoke. It sounds like fun. It is too bad your friends that are larger don't want to get out though I do understand why. I was never one of those people who let my weight stop me from having fun.....I would ask my married friends. Less chance of them stealing your man i hope you find someone to go out with tonight. If not have a party for one(you) and enjoy life. The mug shots though have to go.....how do you expect to catch Mr. man or at least Mr. sugar daddy....

I agree. I definately need to invest in some great photos. I'm going to have some taken!

Thanks for the push to do it!

That is awesome....a perfect opportunity. Definately take a class with your friend. If you continue to take classes, you'll have great core muscles. I want to try yoga but it is expensive. I am thinking about getting a video. If I get entangled in my pose at least I'll do it in privacy although I might need 911 near by haha...I also would like to learn pilates. It gives you nice long, lean muscle.
