“So, I agree to meet her!
In a Pub, in the city. It is midweek and the after work drinkers are already at the bar enjoying their first drink, families are checking out the menu in preparation for an easy tea together. It is 6pm. It looks like a regular and routine occasion for all.
But, this is NOT routine for me and I sit awkwardly with a glass of white wine – away from the ‘happy hour’ crowd – waiting and trying to look comfortable and confident. I shift in my seat. I glance around hoping I will recognise her when she enters the room.
There she is. She smiles as she walks toward me …”
This is my story of a long, uncomfortable and complicated relationship with ‘Cupid’. Someone told me the truth once (their version) at the beginning but I did not hear, or maybe I was just not listening – I knew they did not understand either.
I tell you this story to protect you (although it probably won’t) and to heal myself. Life is complicated and we all have our lessons to learn. Life is also full of hope and sprinkled with many humorous and lovely moments. Read on and I will share some of the amusing and weird stories during my friendship with ‘Cupid’.
Like the story of the young lover who was waiting in the garden shed …. or the passionate moment in public … and that weird situation at the airport departure gate!
My apologies now if you recognise yourself in this book of love and relationships – let’s not make the same mistakes twice!
Hindsight is a wonderful thing. Maybe I should have called the book ‘Hindsight‘.
I hope you enjoy reading about my discomfort and my complicated conversations.
