You know that phenomenon when something, seemingly out of nowhere, tickles your brain, then takes up residence, and has you ruminating for months? That’s what happened to me at Bart Watson’s key-note speech at the B.C. Brewers’ Conference back in October. The chief economist for the American Brewers Association gave an engaging talk about the state of craft brewing, chock-full of brain tickling stats and his interpretations of what they mean now and for the future.

I have friends. But there's not a pool of potential dates within that friend group. Or anyone with a secret stash of available friends of friends they have somehow kept from me until now.
How did I used to get dates?

I don't think.
Is there one?
God, if there is, someone tell me where it is!
I understood the etiquette of meeting people at bars.
I do not understand this whole internet dating and hooking up thing.
I wish there was a book - How to Internet Date for Middle-Aged Dummies
