Dan Savage frequently mentions going to clubs and bars as a way to meet people (both friends and more-than-friends) who you then do not go to clubs and bars with.
Definitely not my scene – I’m not wired to have fun at clubs and bars, instead I’m more likely to be anxious ahead of time and then need to spend a day or two hiding by myself to recover.
Coffee shops, though… coffee shops are great.
Good for reading, internetting (should that just have one t?), writing, conversing quietly…
I hear sometimes you can even meet people there.
And it turns out that Seattle has a butt-ton of coffee shops.
tl;dr: I need to find someplace to be a regular.
