Things have changed.
I've avoided posting anything until I was certain that I was an adequate state of mind. I am now. I'm more capable in mind and body than I have ever been, and it's incredibly empowering.
To sum it up, I'm single now. I've learned how incredibly fragile my life had become. The hard way. So I'm building it back up with some solid structure and some pretty basic ground rules. Mostly about making sure that I respect myself enough to be selfish when I should be, and step up to bat when the moment arises.
Speaking of such a moment. About a weekend ago I happened to run into this girl I've been interested in on a Friday night. I was returning from a night out and she was doing the same. I saw immediately that she was distressed and found out that she had been taking care of her drunk friend that night who hits on her when he's in that state. I walk her back into her apartment building and I'm talking to her in the hallway when her drunk friend walks in (he lives in the same building). He tries to coax her into coming up to his place with him and she refuses. He tries again this time by pulling her arm and I say something along the lines of "Hey. She wants to stay here." The guy lets go of her and stumbles over toward me. If his eyes hadn't been half-closed it would have been more serious but I didn't really move from where I was. He got close. Uncomfortable eye to eye close where I wasn't even worried about him trying to throw a punch or anything. I wasn't about to get into a fight with her friend. He backed off and mumbled while heading upstairs. I then took her on a walk to get her mind off the whole thing and had a great time at like 3 AM in the morning.
Wow, I'd be really uncomfortable hanging around drunk male friends who kept giving me unwanted attention. I'm surprised she doesn't have more of a problem with that.

I don't think I would be as nice as she was towards that kind of a friend. Being drunk doesn't make it okay. They say that it is easiest to know one's true person when they're drunk.

My ex-boyfriend used to be like that when he was drunk (after we broke up). But it's not like he was actually going to physically pull me into his room or anything, he was just touchy-feely in a totally harmless and sad way.
I'm glad you were there to take her mind off the whole thing, and I'm glad that you are adjusting to being single. Sounds like a good night in the end.
