If the first way to get on with this dating stuff is to get out there, don't put yourself in prison, even if it's homey and comfortable to begin with. It is very unlikely that someone is going to come up to your door and ask you for a date (and even if they do, think about what you'd be wearing . . .). Don't allow yourself to fall into the La Brea Tar Pits in front of your TV. Get out and be active — and that doesn't mean finding a neighborhood bar as a substitute home away from home either. Bars aren't the best place to find anybody other than lonely people drinking in the dark. Let's make a deal: Avoid any place with bars — they're all a kind of lock-up and confining. Let yourself be free.
