@squeefish @weathering Sorry, totally meant to include you both in the above comment but my internet skillz failed. I'm not a Facebook group admin but please add yourselves :)
I'm actually potentially looking for a place in September and have many awful months of Toronto apt hunting experience under my belt, so I might be of help! I'd be happy to take you through some choice neighbourhoods. If anyone wants to chat: berthamason789 at gmail dot com.
@milkybaggy I am in Toronto, love making new friends, and am into all the things you listed! (particularly scaring seagulls, we have a lot of those) I have lived here for a while but many of my friends have moved away, so I have lots of time for hangouts. There is a Hairpin Toronto Facebook group that is a little more up to date, but I am not sure if there are any events happening soon. Emailing you now!
@chevyvan All the hugs to you. The first few months are the worst, but there will be many wonderful new feels in your future.
If it helps- my thing to eat during that time was all of the chips, and wine that got warm from sitting in my room all night, watching bad TV.
Feeling: The bittersweet sadness that occurs several months after you break up with a good, but ultimately not good enough partner, and are enjoying the lightness of casual sex a bit too much, and you realize you don't miss the ex nearly as much as you think you should, and maybe not at all.
How to eat: Thick, dark coffee, with lots of sugar, sweet and gritty, like the liason with your caller from last night. Paired with a brownie from the coffee shop on your street.
@redheaded&crazy Thank you!!
@quimby Toronto! Long time reader, first time commenter.....I felt the mention of my hometown was a sign for me to start. Hope I'm not too late to the party?
