It was thusly good to find my old friend Bill also quite tired and a bit out of sorts. That usually means we try to solve each other's problems. Or at least figure out how to articulate them.
Yesterday we worked on one of mine.

I’m OK. Really wiped. Yesterday was very busy at work and a rehearsal in Arlington…and then I ended up going out for a last-minute drink that was kind of annoying. You know ... one of those where going out for a beer means you stay up 2 hours later than you should. Then it was annoying. So I lost sleep for no good reason. Which is even more annoying. I’m just annoyed at myself, actuallyFrom: Bill
But really. I’m OK.
How are you?

Tired. Going through a bout of insomnia, and it sucks. Constantly tired and cannot think clearly.From: Karin
Why annoyed at yourself?

Ah, sorry about the no-sleep. I hear you.From: Bill
Annoyed because I keep getting caught up with guys who are very sweet-talky and then have no time or energy for me. And then I just get frustrated. It’s a stupid cycle that I’m just starting to see.

Yeah, it’s not a good cycle. Lets break it!From: Karin

But I need dynamic men who can sweet-talk me. It’s only after I get caught up in it that I see part 2. How does one get around this? Hanging with boring guys in the hopes they’ll turn out to be cool?From: Bill

I do not know, honestly. Is it wrong to say that a dynamic guy shouldn’t need to sweet talk you? Feels like sweet talking should come later.From: Karin

Hmm. I’m overstating the “sweet-talk” part. I don’t mean that.From: Bill
I just like interesting, dynamic people who are fun to be with. It’s more that these are usually also (same) the most ambitious, driven, time-sucked people out there. It’s the dichotomy. Interesting, dynamic people are usually very busy.

Yeah, that kind of sucks.
