(3pm) Erica stopped by and visited a bit. (Nice.)

Maybe my problem is that I have grown too accustomed to doing things alone? (And, writing seems to necessitate a lot of time by myself.)

Instead of saying I haven't dated, maybe I should redefine all the times I have spent with my women friends as dates? (And those are the kinds of times I would like to spend with women in the future, with a little loving thrown in.)

Maybe sharing my poetry with women wasn't the way to find lovers, but at least it helped me to meet a lot of really neat women. (Oh well, I don't write like that anymore anyway. (It used to be that I would go to the bar, write a few short poems there, make copies of them on napkins, and then give the copies to whatever women fascinated me. Now I will write one to six stanzas at the bar and not finish them until later.)) (I suppose a new approach would be to tell women about my poems and invite them over to read them.)

I have been thinking about getting a cat, but I suppose I better find some work first. (Maybe having a pet would satisfy some of my touching needs?)
