So yesterday, I received a message from the woman I went on a date with a few weeks ago.

She doesn’t want a relationship.

I never even considered that she might pull out the friend card.  I wasn’t ready for it.  I curled up on the couch and cried.

But I did send a message back saying that we could be friends.  I’m not so sure I can do that, though.

I’ve been searching for that special someone for a long time.  After spending a couple of weeks sending messages back and forward and going on a date, I really thought I had found the one.  And no, I didn’t just spend all my idle time thinking about her, I started to really get on with things, like writing.

I was crushed to learn that she wasn’t interested in a relationship.  I didn’t know how much I wanted one.  Well, now I do.

I’m just going to have to be honest with her and if she doesn’t feel the same way, try to move on.

Maybe when I’ve said my piece, I’ll be able to get some story written.
