Once more with feeling...
I've spent the last sixteen months bouncing back from a catastrophic complication from beating cancer almost twenty five years ago, climbed out of near financial ruin, and just on this side from re-establishing Grand Central Station, my art career, and getting some stuff published. So naturally the pangs of loneliness and the urge to share life's adventures would get to tugging on my withered heart strings.
And, once again, jumping on line for a look-see has reduced me to a quivering mass of romantic fear. Look familiar? Why, just a little more than five years ago I went through pretty much the very same thing... though then it was a little more kilt and a little less pants. (Oh, you've come a long way, Charlie.)
But this time I'm sticking to it, and chronicling my misadventures thanks to the inspiration of Victoria Ying, a Los Angles based animator who I follow on Twitter. Newly single, herself, she's turned her dating "adventures" into a comic she posts on Tumblr.
So, here I am, about to dive back into the world of bars, awkward first dates, and insecurities. And I'm going to take you all along for the ride.This should get... interesting.
