Charlene gave me Cynthia’s number, and that led to texting, and even a few dates!
All these happened just a couple of weeks ago: the couple of dates I’ve since been on with Cynthia, believe it or not, were the first dates I’ve had in 3 years.
I was pretty nervous at first, and by pretty nervous, I mean I was a train wreck.
I didn’t really know what to say, or if a joke would be good to open up the conversation: She laughed — not because she thought I was really cracking a joke, but because she thought it was ‘cute’ that I was being so honest.
I shan’t go into the boring details of the confirmation process, because I pretty much forgot everything except the fact that I was going to meet 3 days later, I was there in my smartest looking suit, specially tailored when I was invited to a snazzy F1 suite last year as part of a client event.
