First one is over

So… I went for coffee with someone from the Internet

Dealbreakers: smoker (trying to quit), no college degree, not exactly a stable job. Lives with a friend (in the friend’s condo). Hasn’t worked since December (injury, then got a staph infection…), and I think I saw a diabetic bracelet.

Pros: nice guy, lives in my area, contacted me (and sent me a virtual rose, to boot), Jewish.

Most inappropriate part of the conversation…

He: I don’t know if I really want an intimate relationship at this time. In fact, I don’t know if I can even have one right now.

D’ya think I needed to hear that on the first encounter?

This is why I stayed married for 30 years…

    At least you got your feet wet. It will surely be easier from now on – and sounds like things are bound to improve!

    You are a braver woman than I! I still only “browse” and have never jumped in.
    Oh well.

    Kaye, Rhonda – thanks so much. I totally think the first is the hardest!
