Traveled with my girlfriend in California for a few months. Now we have split and I'm going back out on my own in a few months. How do you guys do it Alone?

Story of my life right here. I generally just try to meet people with similar interests or get a job to make some cash and talk to my co workers. I'm an introvert though and don't mind spending a lot of Time alone. But you need human interaction or you'll start talking to yourself haha.

masturbation - world's oldest diy...

addendum: masturbation may take many forms - idle chatter on stp for instance.
On the other hand, let's face it: a special somebody in one's life is something we all cherish (or hope for) - not just to indulge our animal impulses, but also to share, confide with, etc. 'Shared experience is enhanced experience' - beyond one's self, greater than the sum of parts, yadda bing...
Or you could subscribe to the 'Love is a fairytale for idiots' creed.
Newsflash - love makes idiots of us all.
Life is endurance & little else - keep on that trail of tears & eventually it'll merge with the path of acceptance.

1. well, I've pretty much had spent my entire life alone and same goes with a lot of people that I've met so we're used to it

2. make sure you have enough porn on your laptop

3. if you're introverted, well then....stop it. NOW.

do whatever you want whenever you want without having someone hawking over your shoulder/judging you/vying for attention

it'll take some time and there are of course many down moments but you will ultimately find more about yourself

then you'll be better off next relationship ya get into riiiiight? yeeeaaaah

and the cold hard truth is that having a woman with you while traveling is a huge help when it comes to acquiring currency for food, gas, whatever (people tend to feel more sympathy for a female thats in need for gas and/or food money and tend to donate larger bills to help them out). So if you plan on spanging DONT! If you play an instrument, find a stopsign that bottlenecks out of an outdoor shopping center (look for a Walmart that has fast food places around it) and play your heart out. Even if you suck, use that time to practice. The main thing is to have a smile on your face and have fun.... My buddy and I got around the US by playing Story of My Life over and over again. People like seeing us vagabonds enjoying life. If you have no instrument, well....figure out some street performing but have fun with it.

Easy..get on and go. I felt weird about riding trains alone till I did it. Ive had good times with friends but prefer solo travels.

You have a chance now to be 100% free. There is no one else to tell you where to go, how to get there, and how long to take doing so. Enjoy the road as a free man. I was married for 6.5 years and that ended in feb. of this year. I am hitting the road myself in 10 days, as a free man....well me and my doggo anyway. Have fun out there, an stay safe.

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$15.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $15.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $15.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $15.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $15.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
