Dating? Again? [Anonymous Non-Fiction]

Dating. Now there’s a word I never thought I would be saying again! Let’s just say that I am at an age (not antique) that I would consider settled and comfortable. I have my circle of close friends, family, children, and grandchildren. Settled! Friends have, for years, tried to introduce me to nice men but the chemistry or energy just wasn’t there. So life moves on, and it becomes comfortable, familiar and you pay no attention to what’s “outside” the box.

I now introduce a 40-year-old daughter who, it seems, has been looking out/scouting for her Mom (how cute!) What happens to her Mom next is a whirlwind of thoughts, ideas, excitement, panic, and dread. It seems that I have forgotten “how” to date, what to say and do, what to wear! Like getting on a roller-coaster at the amusement park, I guess. A nice man, I’m told, thinks I’m pretty and wants to meet-up and so, soon I will meet-up with a nice, cute man and step outside my box! Now if my stomach will just cooperate this could be fun! I may be back to share its outcome. Dating may be funny or maybe not.
