White Flag

Who goes to bars alone? I have never. Yet here I am. Alone in a bar. With a red. I'm listen
ing to people talk around me. Men. They don't really have much to say to each other. Seems awkward in a way. I love being able to get a man to reveal himself. It's pretty easy to do. Most people love to be heard, in fact most crave it. I don't think most people feel like anyone hears them or is even listening....

I am not a good listener. I am self centered and starving for attention most everyday. I want to be noticed, complimented, appreciated. I do get those things just not as often as I need it. Maybe I think I deserve more but clearly I don't run with the right crowd or maybe I would have my needs met. Maybe I need to give more and expect nothing.

I'm having a hard time with teens and work and love and lonliness.

I surrender.

If I knew what bar you were at I'd come join you. I need a drink real bad right now. And someone to talk to.

I can eat alone at a bar in a nice restaurant, and feel fine about it. I usually meet people that way. But I can't sit and drink alone at a bar. It just feels wrong. Bars are for chatting with people, and laughing. It is awkward when people are at the bar and silent!
