Loss of Sanity

Sometimes I think that when women get married... even if they were single well into their 30s, they lose all sense of reality!

I told you about a friend who wants to introduce me to a guy. She's busy working, painting and renovating a house with her husband and doesn't have time to plan an evening any time soon to introduce us.

When I saw her at a baby shower, she asked me if the guy had called me.
No, he had not.
"I talked to him three times, and told him to call you." she assured me.

Before I could respond, we were distracted by party activities but I wanted to say, "Have you lost your good sense woman?! He's not going to call me out of the blue just because you gave him my number. Nobody does that! I certainly don't blame him. You're going to have to bring him to a church fish fry or something, to introduce us."

You get married and suddenly this seems like how single people behave?
I'm seriously concerned about her sanity.

Guess what?
He called me last night.

Out of the blue - just because she gave him my number and told him to call.
He even apologized for not calling sooner. When I told him that I didn't have an expectation for him to call - based on the situation - he was stunned. Impressed. Shocked that I wasn't a woman with strange expectations.
"That's so cool." he said.

And we talked. for. four. hours.

When my friend told me that she known him for 12 years, and the only person she could ever think of to introduce him to was me... and she's been waiting three years to do so - I had to think that there's a good chance it's a good match.

Talking to him - even after one hour - it was clear that we not only have a lot in common but really click.

I just hope he's cute.
