By this time next week, I’ll be on vacation in Vancouver and, shortly thereafter, I will be on an Alaskan cruise. It’s not just any cruise, though, because I will be traveling with a Jewish singles group.
I used to put pressure on myself before I’d embark on a singles trip.
Will I meet someone?
Will I meet “the one?”
I’ve stopped thinking in those terms because it just sets you up for unrealistic expectations. But, there is still the anticipation of the unknown.
Will I make new friends?
Will there be any men that peak my interest?
Will any of the men like me?
But, I will admit that on this particular night, I’m lonely. I look around my condo and think, “It’d be nice to have someone here with me right now.”
Sigh. Until the next time….
