{February 17, 2010}   Failure To Connect – What we wish for

It was a Friday night and Dina called me to go out.

This was usually ‘the date’ that we had on weekends. It would be a very simple ‘girls night out’ of meeting around 7pm to go to a bar/restaurant to have a drink (only one) and probably share an appetizer. The night for us would end around 10-11pm.

It will probably sound boring to you, but this is how we are. We are not the type of women who dressed up and went anywhere with the intention of picking up guys.

Our interest has always been to have a nice conversation and catch up on our lives, basically talking about our usual or current ‘state of affairs’ which was very simple.

We are both single, with a career, have no kids, young, close to our families, and a positive outlook on life. But we are missing something that we long for: to have a serious relationship with another man.

We always discussed this every time we met. We had so much positive things going for us, but there was an unfortunate, sad reality going against us.

People our age in the mid to late 30’s and early 40’s are already married or taken. The guys that become available do so later in life when they are divorced and probably have 50+ years of age.

So Dina and I were stuck in a no-win situation. We felt that there was no way to change it and that our futures, as it related to love, looked very grim.

And sitting in a bar every so often was not to help either.

We looked around and what we saw was really depressing, except this particular guy that pretty much has been staring at me the whole time I’ve been sitting here.

What’s the deal with him?
