Dating the neighbor
My friend…let's call her Jane…has a dating dilemma that is so cute and funny and…unusual. Catch up, here.)Let's get right down to it: Jane is a single mom, beautiful, mid-thirties, and lives in San Francisco, where the nights are warm and sultry right now.We've been texting and talking about it a lot lately, and, I kid you not, it's like a scene straight out of the movie (I should add, the bit about the sneezing and "God bless you" has stuck with me my entire life). As such, she finds herself, often, on her little front porch overlooking the bay after her kids are in bed.So, I decided, with her permission (and a few identifying details changed), to share my pal's situation with you all. She'll pour a glass of wine, put a record on, and watch the sun fade over the horizon.
