Before bicycling I didn’t have a social life at all. I did have a marriage and a family, so it worked out.
My previous marriage ended before the bicycling started, and I met a bunch of great people while bicycling. I’ve often made the comment that bicycling is my social life.
Nearly all of my recent riding has been commuting or running errands. My wife has been out of town for work a lot recently. I feel like I have no social life. I don’t make friends easily. I keep to myself most of the time. I did go out for beer and pizza tonight, but it felt a little pathetic sitting there by myself watching others.
I left the house this evening (in the rain on the bike) to try to improve my mood. I ended up at Za’s Pizza, which has great pizza and good beer, but I don’t know anyone there. It was really kind of sad.
I shouldn’t be eating out anyway, but I couldn’t sit in the house any longer. Blah.
