There are some perks to dating to the point of being jaded: When a keeper comes along, you know it. I applaud my strong, independent friends who may keep dog paddling in the dating pool for years and years.
Or maybe they’ll decide that they prefer to be on their own. I’m due to give birth any day now to my first, and my single life seems very long ago.
I watched my little brother marry his college sweetheart (brilliant, red-haired, born on Saint Patrick’s Day), and they made it seem so easy.
They still look at each other with the unembarrassed adoration of a first crush. Rather than attempt to describe the men I’ve dated, allow me to list just a few of the reasons we broke up: another woman; his strong sense of thrift; a reverence for the Virgin Mary that took precedence over me; probably gay; a drink called the Zombie that must have contained an unusually blunt strain of truth serum; chronically misused vocabulary words (his); he simply “forgot” to pick me up for dinner one night; my impatience; my nagging; my general dislike of the Great Outdoors.
I remember one year when she took a photo of me with my high school homecoming date. Nothing dramatic, nothing messy; just an unspoken legacy that I was to avoid the big mistake they had made: settling down early.
As far as men were concerned, I had the good fortune to be restricted by neither type nor taste.
