Last night the Inimitable One and her SO had me over for a dinner party. They wanted me to meet Mike the Engineer. There were other people there as buffers... so it wouldn't be scary. He seemed nice, and he had attractive hands, but he actually didn't talk to me at all. I think I stressed him out, actually. At one point in the evening, I got up to use the loo and The IO shifted her seat so I could sit next to Mike. It was so obvious. The food was delicious and I had a great time meeting people. I made sangria and gravy (some dude had to come and help me at one point).
The Universe wants me to be single. That is it. I just need to accept that and quit whining.
