I've been starting to play a bit. I found out there have tournaments for different ratings. I haven't studied the game yet and don't know If I should make such a commitment but I have been playing online a bit and mostly losing. I just found out they have chess nights at a local bookstore. I may go but I might actually have to socialize too much for my comfort. I wonder If I'll be the creepy loner there or if everyone there is a geek. Shoot maybe I'll feel more comfortable there. I'm probably further sabotaging my dating prospects If I join a chess club though.
