Not out tonight
I was thinking about going out tonight. That was about 5 this afternoon. However, since I attempted to go out last week between 5:30 and 6 pm to a place downtown, having got there during rush-hour traffic, not being able to find parking, and getting thoroughly frustrated with drivers who wouldn't let me change lanes to turn on the streets my GPS said I needed to, then being stuck in constant traffic for 45 minutes just trying to get home again, I decided that tonight I should wait until after 7 pm to leave. However, the place I was thinking of going to (Alamo Drafthouse and cinema) always has a very long line to get in. The online reviews all said that if you want to get in without standing in a stupidly long line, you should get there early. Well, that was around 7 pm. Since I wasn't even sure how to get there, or where to park if I found it, I decided not to go out tonight. Instead I looked-up single's groups on Meetup.com for people in their 40's or older. I think meeting people in person at events the group enjoys will be better for meeting people. I joined a group and will try and get to one of their meet-ups soon.
