Dating (being single) which I’ve done most of my life except when in relationship, I always want to give people the benefit of the doubt yet when they take up all the space either with some long-winded resume’ or chatter or ask a million questions that are very far away from this, the present moment, I lose patience. Do I think more conversation will eventually go in an inclusive direction? Another time with person who must be nervous will prove not to be who I thought they were? No. I remember asking a woman who started a conversation by talking for twenty straight minutes if she could tell me what she was feeling in that moment. Her reply, “I don’t usually talk about my feelings until the third or fourth date.” I wished a nice day and left.
