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.
