He did however buy me a drink in the bar afterwards and asked me what I thought of the event.I said I would be unlikely to go again because I have nothing in common to talk about with the men that I have met at these events.The purported “news” was never good: Smart women are less likely to marry.Successful men are romantically interested only in their secretaries.And if a woman makes a lot of money, men will be intimidated.
Why he was there, I do not know, as he made it clear that he was not really looking to date anyone.
Then John looked at his watch and said that he had to get going.
He didn’t mention getting together again, and that was the last Sara heard from him. There are many possible reasons that John might have decided not to pursue the relationship further: He may simply have decided he was not attracted to her after all, or that she was not as interesting as she seemed in her profile.
He proceeded to give me a lecture as to why I shouldn’t automatically dismiss dating the two guys who were responsible for service washes in the launderette as they may be perfectly nice people and that career women in their thirties get what they deserve if they don’t.
I am just wondering how many other men think like this?
