Date Night

Since yesterday didn’t work out, I decided that that was it. I need to break out of my social celibacy. Plus, a date - A ‘dinner/conversation date which would go on to the party and then we would see from there’ date. It was a semi-blind date – a friend of a dear friend of mine – the same guy that hadn’t got my jokes. I was apprehensive to say the least.

So, I went and met this guy and we had dinner over whiskey/vodka. The conversation was not the most brilliant and it was more one-sided than you expect a date to ideally be. Throw in some weird concepts and ideologies, it wasn’t far too entertaining or interesting.

From there, we went on to the party, where I met my dear friend, who gave me some respite. We went on to wine and beer at the party, but the conversation never took off. However, I got to know three interesting facts during the night: 1, Picasso painted realism fantastically :-O; 2, Lady Gaga played good piano; and 3, Not Just Jazz By the Bay used to a gay cruising place.

What this means is that I just have one guy on the radar. The funny guy!

I really hate when you go on a date and the conversation is so hard to maintain. It feels like peeling skin of.

the way you write about your dates and the experience you have had with them (indicating they lack a sense of humor and etc), i doubt if any sane person would have any interest in going out with you. so you should go back to those long distance relationships you had in the past where the person doesnt actually have to put up with you in real. you are getting old, come to reality before you realize its too late, you have already done a lot of blunders writing about your personal life way too much. give this blog a break for an year, you will feel better about yourself. on another note are you still taking pills for depression?

Well, I never reveal the identities of the people that I go out with in public. And I write the truth. I don't see what's wrong with it.

By the way, I'm still on therapy for depression.

but the one's you are writing about know that you are writing about them and do you think they are impressed by that? "i am writing the truth, i am an open book" things like this look good in movies only, in reality they only make you a weirdo. that is your main problem - you are delusional and i have no idea why? you are not 23-24 anymore. no sane person wants to go out with a guy who is in therapy for any reason, learn to draw a line as to what to write and what not to write.

Kris: I must suggest that it is not worth the time to respond to "brave" people (amazing how much folks think they can get away with by remaining anonymous) such as Anonymous who have nothing better to do with their time but to be mean-spirited and petty. You are a vital, attractive (and will be attractive for many years) and sensitive man- and my only wish is for you to get back to blogging more. As for knocking therapy and anti-depressants- well, I have been in a relationship for 16+ years, and I am in therapy and anti-depressants- because some of us care about being the best that we can be, beign honest about our issues, and are strong enough to get help as needed. So, anyone who has a problem with all of that? Fine with me- I'm the one who gets to live my life on my terms, and make my own decisions.

Ultimately, I feel sorry for those such as "Anonymous"- but I also have zero interest in trying to get inside their heads and figure out what makes them tick. I don't know why some feel it elevates them to deflate others. In any case, especially for those of us who deal with depression- the last thing we need to do is to give ANY time, energy and space in our heads to negative people.

Any person would be and will be very lucky to end up with you, Kris. Please hold on to this. So, again, please don't waste time to respond anymore to such entirely unnecessary and baseless comments as those from "Anonymous."

I highly recommend reading "Velvet Rage" by Dr. Alan Downs. Might give you some useful insight.

@Anonymous 2: Cheers mate! And by the way, depression is a neurochemical pathology. I'm wired that way! That's it!
