I think dating is just like riding a bicycle. You never really forget. At least I guess I didn’t.
Seriously – it’s starting to come back. And I realize how much I enjoyed flirting.
I also remembered how much I hated rejecting others. In my short “return-to-dating after divorce” experience I’ve already rejected Mr. last week’s coffee. After six days he emailed me (I thought that I’d dodged a bullet – that maybe I’d never hear from him again). I was torn. Do I see him again, even though I was not excited about a man who works at Staples, smokes and lives with a buddy in the buddy’s condo?
No – and I’m definitely not geting any younger, people. So I responded to his email with a polite thank you for the coffee we shared, told him that we weren’t a match, and wished him well. It was just as hard as it was 30 years ago, except that, admittedly, it’s waaaaaay easier to do over email than over the phone or in person.
Thank goodness for technology.
