When a guy’s on his own, you need a friend to come with you

The last time I went to a bar, I found myself looking out the window for an opening.

I didn’t know what I was looking for, but I knew it needed to be close.

I was standing in a line, and a guy behind me was staring at me from the window.

It wasn’t because I was trying to find an opening—it was because he was looking at me.

It was at a bar in New York, and I was having a great time.

My friend and I were drinking our beers, and the barman had just come back from his shift.

He took a sip from his beer, and said, “I’ve been here three times.

You look so tired.”

It was the first time I’d ever heard a bartender say this to me.

But, to my surprise, I actually felt like I was tired.

My first thought was, I could barely get this beer to my mouth.

A few weeks later, I’d go back to a different bar and a different bartender, and this time the guy was talking about his experiences.

He mentioned how he’d seen people take a break from their work to take a nap.

I thought, this sounds really fun.

“If I can do it, anyone can,” he told me.

And then I thought to myself, If I can’t do it…

I’ve had a lot of people tell me they can’t get enough of me.

The thought of having a buddy with me makes me feel like a true human.

I’ve done a lot to try to make it happen.

I have to admit, I’m still a little wary of bar hopping.

I’m a bit nervous because I’ve heard so many people say they want to hang out with a buddy but don’t have one.

But there are so many awesome people out there that I want to connect with, and when I think about a friend in the bar, or even just a friendly face in a crowded bar, it makes me want to go.

I can tell you that it has made me feel more comfortable and less lonely.
