When do you know when to put yourself out there?
Relationships are everywhere, and not to generalize, but they are pretty fucking easy to have. You can meet people anywhere, and whether you want to talk to a person or not, relationships happen everyday, though they may only last for that day, or for that hour, or for that concert.
It becomes a question of, when do you think its right? When is it worth pursuing? There can be the guy who is funny and charming, but just lacks that je-ne-sais-quoi that makes you want to give them your number. Or the guy who seems great, but your time was too brief to really know if anything was there. And there is the guy who you totally think you dig, and in effect, don't want to be over eager.
In all cases, how do you know whether or not you should really go for it, really fight for the contact, despite how it could end up: romantic, friendly, or you may not end up with anything! This new year of being "alone" allowed me to adopt a mantra of fuck-it-all. Pardon my french, or whatever, but its really the only way to describe it. So I won't apologize for giving out my number to one too many people, for actually meeting someone in traffic on the highway, or for having crushes I probably shouldn't have. For, how nice it sounds to let go! To be free! And not to sound cliche, but to really be passionate, sans-guard for just that moment!
