It does sound nice, doesn't it? Wish it were the afternoon here. There's this place in Cambridge where you can sit on a stool by the window (which has a box of flowers on it) and the sun streams in and it's so nice. I went there when I turned 21 all by myself to do just that and it was perfect
I've never been to Brussels, although maybe one day. Funny - I don't take enough pictures, but I listen to new CDs whenever I travel. So that whenever I listen to that CD, it reminds me of the place I visited. I guess everyone has their habits (some people collect matchbooks?).
Edit: That doesn't count, I don't think, so you're safe
Bars are pretty awful places to meet people - the internet is becoming the new "bar scene." And don't be so self-depricating!
