Dating after a break up
Right now, the excitement and nervousness of going to a high-end nightclub for the first time occupies her mind, as she grew up and went to college in the rural South where all they had were a few dive bars.
The 32-year-old has had five "official" boyfriends in her life.
In fact, she'd met one of the girls she was with tonight that way.They've arrived early so the crowd is still a bit sparse, but this gives them time to actually hang out and talk before anyone else arrives and they get involved in other conversations.As the 32-year-old orders her drink, she chats with the bartender for a bit, because she knows that even a brief conversation with a stranger (male or female) will get her into a more social mood, which might help later if any men want to talk to her.As the 32-year-old gets out of the cab in front of the lounge where she'll meet her friends, the sharp cold bites at her face.It reminds her of the time three years ago when she first met her ex boyfriend. She'd seen him looking at her earlier across the bar she was at with her friends, but he didn't approach.
