After moping around like a big loser for the past couple of months I finally decided to go out and try to make some friends. The site meetup.com was recommended to me by someone so I got online and applied for membership with a group of women who are not native to the Pittsburgh area.
They had a meetup tonight at the Penn Brewery, the first craft brewhouse in Pennsylvania. I arrived about fifteen minutes late because I got lost. If it was up to me I would have driven all the way to Harrisburg, but common sense hit me. Okay actually I saw a sign that said Brewery <—. And still made a wrong turn after that.
I was nervous at first, especially when I saw that the table was full, but someone quickly made room for me. Within a few minutes I had a Penn Weizen in my hand and was chatting with everyone, thanking myself for showing up.
Because really? I needed girl time like it was nobody’s business.
What is it about female relationships that are so important? I love Lucas so freaking much, but there are certain needs that a guy simply doesn’t have the capacity to meet. Just goofing off with women I hardly know awakened something in me that has been dormant for months. I smiled. Felt happy. Hopeful.
The food? Wasn’t even important.
