It’s been nearly a year since I separated and the divorce will be final soon. I have to admit I have been thinking about dating lately. It makes me nervous. What if I find I am attracted to someone like the horse trader? He had some very intriguing moves. The appreciative, appraising look; like he was consuming me with his eyes. Touching my wrist so softly, tracing his finger across it, knowing exactly what he was doing. Giving me an unspoken promise I knew he would have no problem keeping.
Or someone like the pirate, who is based on someone I know. Forceful, dynamic, devastatingly handsome, used to getting what he wants. Knowing exactly how to lead a woman into his trap and savoring every step as she approaches cautiously, but he already knows she’s his.
It’s just been so long since I’ve played this dating game.
I worry I won’t be able to restrain myself. What woman could resist a deadly handsome man? I fear I am already lost.
Thanks, Wes. I have laughed all night long over this.
