What are the chances?

First off, my friend K, please calculate the chances and let me know what they are...

Second, all names and places and situations have been changed to protect the identities of those involved.

I recently signed up again for an online dating service. There are not many quality single men in my area that I've met and would be interested in dating.

I had a match sent to me from my area and turned out, "Bob" was a guy I knew from the "gym". I haven't seen him lately there when I go, and haven't had the chance in the past few weeks to go.

Today, I had coffee with "Barbara". It was great catching up and learning more about Barbara's life. Barbara and I met at the "gym". While we were talking, I felt the need to let her know about "Bob" just in case if I see him at the "gym", she can save me from an awkward conversation.

As I was sharing, she began laughing. The reason? She had gone out with "Bob" last week. Turns out that she doesn't see a potential relationship unfolding for the two of them and we had a great laugh together.

While she gave me her blessing in getting to know "Bob", I don't think I will be trying to have coffee with him any time soon.

Wow,Cathy! What ARE the chances??? Haha! "Bob" is going to really miss out on a chance with you... you are simply delightful. :)

First of all - need more info to calculate but they are probably higher than you think... also - why are you avoiding him instead of talking to him? You know I'm going to lecture you about this... :)
