Firstly, sorry to hear that Jase, thoughts are with you.
Best: I arrived in Boston, didn't get raped at customs and I'm set up in my apartment. I'm here for three months and am looking forward to the summer ahead.
Worst: I'm on my own, and I well fancy going out for a meal and a few beers - but can't bring myself to do it on my own. Am I a weirdo or not? I'll end up going out for food at some stage, just feels a bit odd.

nah mate, thats normal not weird..your gonna have to meet up with a mucker before you can relax doing that shizzle.
2 Jul 2009 23:03
nah, fuck it, go out and do it. more likely to meet people if you're out and about.
2 Jul 2009 23:06
Would be weirder if you stayed in imo

If I ever have to go and get something to eat by myself, it's in, paper on the table, eat, pay, leave, sharpish, without speaking to anyone but the waiter/waitress.
Can't do going out solo.

Nice one smith, just gonna stay in and bash one out after a bit of text sex with a man pretending to be a girl.

no-one said stay in, just said its not weird to feel unrelaxed going out for dinner and on a date all on your own and your the other person in the date…but there again, you lot on here go to four day festivals on your own. so maybe im the one in the wrong.

Appreciate it's weird at first but eating on your own is easier in US than here.
If you feel awkward just take a book/magazine.

Pretend to be a food critic.

Won't be on your tod for that long. Boston has about 500 colleges doesn't it? Such a nice city. Americans are far friendlier and far more curious than Brits I've found anyway. Take a book, get some munch and enjoy yourself.

Best: Earning alright money, saving a bit so I can see a bit of the planet and just get away.
Worst: I fucking hate my job, well some of the people I come into contact with and the way one feels like shit at the end of the day.
but can't really complain losing someone close is another matter.
