I can bring a plus one for an event tonight. Apparently no one wants to/can go, which is fine. Oh, except this guy. He saw that I was looking for someone to go, and sent me a message to ask what time it was. If he can go, I'm not going to say no. I just wish my prospects were a little better.

On a related note, a theatre company I occasionally work with only offers one comp ticket per performer/crew. I suppose that's all well and good if you have an SO who wouldn't be bringing a date anyway, but what about those of us without them? Can't offer it to my parents (if they lived near me), since there are two of them. No couple friends either. It's like a 2for1 for them, which is somewhat helpful, but still. Nope. I get to pick the one friend I like more than anyone else and say "You can come free to my show. Bring some of our other friends, but you get in free!" I usually just emailed a bunch of people and said that the first respondent gets a free ticket.

The plus side is that if I don't find anyone for tonight, I won't feel obligated to go out with them after. Which is good, because I have big plans to spend the rest of my Friday evening at the gym.
