CaptureYour365 Photo Prompt: March 18 2017

One:“Table for one?” the waitress asks.

It’s Saturday night. Date Night.

As I look around the crowded restaurant I realise I’m the only one alone.

It’s okay, I don’t mind.

Last year I chose the wrong one so this year I’ve decided to focus on taking care of myself.

I’ve learned that despite my empathetic nature I cannot try to fix someone.

I choose a drink from the menu and scan the restaurant again.

No one knows me or perhaps it is that I don’t know anyone.

I signal the waitress and ask for one more.

“The same?” she asks, holding up my glass, her head cocked to the side. 

“No actually,” I say. “A different one.”

I leave the decision up to her.

To me, drinks are like men: you tell yourself just one but you find you can’t stop and that the next one will be the last.

Maybe one day you’ll find The One.
