Sounds like it was good practice and got you out of the house on an adventure. That sounds just about right in my book. Love is like looking for a needle in a haystack sometimes. I think its best to have the approach of seeking out adventure and seeing where it leads you instead of seeking out love. I find it makes people look and come across as needy when they are looking for love. I don't feel that they are disappointed or passing me off when they come across that way.
