I've spent years alone when I was your age, and I was lonely, sometimes it was painful, but I don't regret it, though I am a strong believer in the inevitability of regret.

Most of us monogamous folks wind up doing serial monogamy, and then feeling settled at some point, with a like minded partner.
Good company or no company.
Sep 21 SifuMark commented on Wanna Cuddle with Strangers?.
I'm informed, by sources I have considered reliable, that cuddle parties are held around here (North Bay of SF). They came up regularly on a forum I used to hang out on: I think that it was the Bay Area Rider's Forum (It's for motorcycle people). They have a strong set of rules to make sure that it's clothes on, no making out only holding.
It sounds to me like a fine thing for lonely or poly curious folk who want to try being in a real pile with very little risk.

I once spotted a self-help book on a GF's shelf called "The Fifty Mile Rule". She lived more than fifty miles away. I asked "What's that?" and she said that she didn't know what it was or how it got there. That was over with pretty quick.

Also avoid partners whose favourite book is a self-help volume called "The Dance Of Anger" and only have "The Prince" (not the little one) on her bedside shelf. That one didn't last long, either (surprise).

So, yeah, look at the actual bookshelves.

If she had gone the route of Cher I would be so disappointed.

Kate Bush rocks top to bottom, and back.
I can't say that I have a favourite musician because a lot of them rate 100%.

I think that she has moved music forward. She is a true progressive artist and wonderful in every way.

Of course I only put on Hounds Of Love when I'm ready for a shattering emotional experience, but there are safer Bush albums on my shelves.

I have heard so may tales of regret from the married and several times married, and many of the parents I've known as well.

Good company or no company I say.

I think that Robert Anton Wilson coined the phrase "As quick and sneaky as a preacher's dick in a cow's ass."

Also @15 brings to mind this old one: Why do you have to wrap hamsters in duct tape?
So they don't explode when you fuck them.
Jul 4 SifuMark commented on SL Letter of the Day: Smoke Her Out.
When I was 19-23 I thought that since an occasional heated "disagreement" can be an acceptable norm in some relationships, that I should tolerate what it took me four years to figure out was simply emotional abuse. I required two and a half years of celibacy and then one very kind hippie twice my age to begin to recover.

That last part was extremely pleasant, but GET OUT before you become a walking wounded misogynist fixer-upper; it can happen to the best of us; let me just quote the Amityville house again: GET OUT!

tl/dr: good company or no company.

There is no such thing as "ODing" on pot, but I suspect that most sloggers know that.
More magic brownie than you meant to get means a talk with entities who are (arguably) not present, or a short period of severe paranoia (which guides some damn fools to the emergency room), or just going to sleep with your shoes on because you forgot how to untie them.
I have experienced the first two (but in the latter case I went to my bed, with my shoes off, not to the fucking emergency room because I am not an idiot).
Jun 15 SifuMark commented on SL Letter of the Day: Just Out.
Craigs'sList is a wonderful recourse, you get partners, some of which wind up just friends (you know what that sometimes means: an important person who you love and is fun to be with), sometimes you get a wife (or a husband, those are out there too.).
I love to brag that I found her on CL. So there.
