I was going to suffer on this Friday night, and there wasn't anything I could do about it.
I plan on following the same routine Saturday night too.
I thought she was losing her mind, but she was fed up with the dating scene, and the dating games, and went to this seminar on the sitcom. At first I didn't think I could pull this off, but I was dressed in a nice skirt and blouse, and I was on my way to my favorite restaurant, Bennigan's on Michigan Avenue in Chicago, Illinois. I reached for the menu and was bent on having some fun.
The speaker told them to stop worrying about other people granting your happiness, but to find happiness within yourselves. Another work week ended, and it was another Friday night. I went there with a few friends, and boyfriends, but I never ventured alone. I didn't have to make conversation with anyone, and pretend that I was having a good time.
I was disappointed when the movie ended, but I'd always remember it because I came alone.
I couldn't believe I had mastered this plan without any drawbacks. The dating myself trend continued for the rest of the month.
It was a weekend trip, and I enjoyed the ride because I got caught up on my rest, and was able to stay in a nice hotel, eat, and gamble.
I also won three hundred dollars on the quarter machine, and then I headed away from the casinos.

Two hours later I was still at the restaurant, and enjoying my book. I took two of their phone numbers, but I didn't know if I was going to call them. I found the perfect seat in the middle of the theatre.
The movie was old now, so everyone had gone to see it, so I was lucky because the theatre wasn't that full.
There's nothing on cable, or television for that matter.
I'm tired of reading books, and there's no one to talk to on the telephone because they're out with their boyfriend or girlfriend. I loved Fridays because they stipulated the end of the work week, but I hated Fridays because I had no man in my life, and no plans whatsoever. If she was doing something, I was going to tag along with her.
I knew when to grab my winnings, and keep stepping.
