A bit of kissing occurred last night. I kind of started it ...
you can't just leave us hanging on that bombshell!!
Oh, it's my old friend, Joanne. She's quite flirty, but we've never really got it together. I did try, in a good way, but she's evasive. Anyway, she sometimes kisses me ... so instead of that, I kissed her.
I wasn't at all tactile when I was younger, but I'm less inhibited now. I'm not gay, but after a few beers I know a couple of men who kiss me ... in a footballer kind of way. I live in a strange bubble, but if being single's given me anything at all, it's access to an awful lot of people. That's the plus side.
Thinking about it, one St Paddy's Day (Joanne is half Irish, half Jewish), we repaired to a nearby Wetherspoons and snogged (what was left of) the night away. Then we were both booted out, and we went our separate ways. It's odd. I seem to attract extremely non-committal women. Annoyingly, Jo said, 'I can't understand why you're single, John.' Arrrrrgghhh. I nearly said, 'Because you're daft ...' but then she'd be annoyed and would probably avoid me.
Sleepy, no need for embarrassment. I think the situation you describe is a lot more common than most of us would like to admit, and with the rise of online dating sites it's probably getting worse.
Oh I think you are definitely right about this, everyone seems to be holding for that person that doesn't exist because it's oh so easy to meet new people on the internet. Not that meeting new people on the Internet isn't fun and I myself admittedly have probably had a little it of this mindset at times.
