I wouldn’t date a guy once when he bragged that he didn’t like garlic. I mean, really, where could that possibly go long term? And who brags about something like that to a classically trained cook?
On paper he looked near-perfect … devilishly handsome and successful, but as I sipped my first (and only) glass of wine listening to him drone on about the evils of garlic and Thai food, his belief that global warming was just propaganda, etc. I wanted to be anywhere else but there. By the time he got to his love of Kenny G, I was so bored and incensed I could almost feel my nostrils flaring. I even briefly wondered if I should try the old “escape via the ladies room” trick. This was a perfectly boring, perfectly predictable man, perfectly void of any spice and seasoning. Translation: sex would be the same. Blink, blink! I didn’t stay for a second glass.
Oh, go ahead and read my post Memorial Day in the Hindsight Zone on dating and trying to find love.
There’s always been a man who lived in my imagination. Even before I met him. I knew he was there. And I knew he was looking for me. I could feel it. He’s always had my heart. Odds were that he’s not in my town, state, country, or even hemisphere. Yet, there he was. Only feet away. Life has been joyful and beyond.
