It hasn’t been very long, but somehow it feels like long enough: I need to dive back in.
I don’t need a man, but after the amount of time I’ve spent without one – married but disconnected, sleeping apart – I want a man. Just now and then, though. I definitely don’t want a marriage: Divorces are expensive, I already have a pair of them, and perhaps most important, my lawyer refuses to give me a punch card.* I’m not convinced I want a commitment, either. I’m just not there yet.
What I want is just some conversation with someone who isn’t female. Dinner at a nice restaurant. Someone to flirt with on a dance floor.
Cripes, I know a lot of women.
Anyway, I have a theory about life: No experience is wasted if, at the end, I have either a had a good time or gained a good story.
Match.com it is.
*Yes, I asked.

As the early feminists said ~ “a woman without a man is like a fish without a bicycle.” Cheering you on for male dinner companionship!
