I got news for you…it’s not just women of reproductive age. It’s ALL women. I longed to have an intelligent conversation over coffee, dinner, a game of backgammon, etc. with a gentleman who visited me weekly at my place of business. He used the word “Anthropocene” and I thought, “Wow! I want to be friends with him.” When I invited him for coffee just so I could spend some uninterrupted time with him, he immediately took as I was looking for something other than a decent friendship. Just because I am single does not make me desperate. Dude, I wanted to exchange ideas and stories…not bodily fluids.
