Amateurs have to take turn being the Doctor.
A pro knows that Dentist is a one-player game.

I'm kindof torn, here. On one hand, I'm really tired of being single. I don't look down on people who choose to be, but I know that I'd be much more fulfilled if I weren't alone. On the other hand, I look at people in relationships and their lives seem like such travesties. I don't want to be alone, but then again I don't what they have.
I'm also starting to feel more than a little trapped, up here. The Suits like to keep me in the dark, and those who've known me long enough will tell you that I lash out when cornered, and I'm trying to avoid that. Today, though, one of my clients took me in his office and offered me a sweet hookup with one of his correspondents in Utah (exactly where I would want to live). So, I might take him up on that. The only drawback would be that it couldn't start for sixty more days. We'll see, though. I think that I might give my own people until the end of this week to see what they can cook up, then make my decision from there. At the very least, they'd be happy to have me for another sixty days. But we'll see.

As for relationships, I'll second that.
As for work, either way let me know. On the one hand it would suck not too see you for another two months. On the other, if you do stay I'll see you in two weeks anyway. I will manage it if it's the last thing I do. If I have to steal the car I will, just you wait. Let me know what happens with those offers! How would you feel about staying another two months? Was this job offer from the same company as you were going to work for or another one?
From another one. I would be working directly for my client instead of contractually.
Yay! That should give you a bit more freedom to do what you need to do.

"But if in your fear you would seek only love's peace and love's pleasure,

Then it is better for you that you cover your nakedness and pass out of love's threshing-floor,

Into the seasonless world where you shall laugh, but not all of your laughter, and weep, but not all of your tears."
Ouch. You know, though, I can't imagine that this was written by someone who wasn't in love. I sense a certain persuasive bias.
Oh, I wasn't trying to be hurtful, dear. Just making a counterpoint.
This sounds a lot like our conversation the other night, but its you talking instead of me. :) Good luck with both the relationship issues and the work issues. Hope to see you soon!
