This is a question Desperate Times

Stranded in a hotel in an African war zone with no internet access for two weeks, I was forced to resort to desperate measures. Possessing only my passport and the clothes I stood up in; and the warning "You can catch it shaking hands with a vicar out there" ringing in my ears, I had to draw my own porn in order to preserve my sanity.

Alas, it all came out looking like Coronation Street's Audrey Roberts, but, as they say, any port in a storm.

What have you done in times of great desperation?

Welcome to Act of Desperation (tm) pt 1 and 2.
This is the abridged version:

Meet R for band. Meet flatmates. Meet H who is great - immediate liking.

Have gig, meet R's friend K. H also there. Much chatting and other drink-involved things.

Later, party. Hitting on H. H retires due to over-inebriation.

This is where the dilemma begins, and act of desperation 1:

I am a) drunk b) horny and c) desperate to fill the existential groove i've been in since my last relationship fell to bits. And so, i go for backup plans.

So i, in desperation, fall into K, start a pointless relationship.

Weeks later, i realise my folly - dissolve relationship. Much tears shed (on her part) i end up single again.

Single again; decide to sort self out (you at the back, no sniggering). Do so by attempting to fulfill (c) and getting out of existential funk. Do so by doing the following:

Asking H for drinks.

But H is good friends with K. And in my desperation have rendered myself socially radioactive.

Length? Well, it was only a week between the breakup and the re-affirming of single status. Desperation? Well, i tried to move from one friend to another.

Been there too!
Spot on exactly the same my existential groove was filled by a certain ladys fist in the back of my head after the ensuing screaming match ohh the fun!
