Alone and peaceful

by mimi, columbia, SC

I was in college and I didn’t have a date when everyone else did. So I dated myself. I did things that I loved and enjoyed that made me feel fulfilled. During Christmas, I had a South American tea at a local restaurant. The day was cloudy and cold, a perfect day for tea. The chef brought the various courses to the table as I sat at the table by the window. I felt so special having the chef and the waitress to myself to laugh and give off little anecdotes of fun.
