Jeri lives in Hobart where she owns a gallery. Since her divorce, many years ago, she's finally ready to "be" with a man again. But finding the right one seems to be harder than she thought.
“If I had known the blind date was you, I’d probably would’ve said no, as well. See—” she looked away before meeting his gaze again. “By all means, I am not old. But… I am at an age where I want to be selfish, have a man who is charming, spoils me, takes me out for dinner, travels with me—”
“I get the gist Jeri.”
She let out a soft laugh. “You, on the other hand, strike me as a man who’s still looking for that special someone.”
He raised his brow.
“The woman you can start a family with.”
“I ask you out for a date and you think family?”
“No, I’m thinking, don’t waste your time on me.”
Frustration grew within him and he was afraid to lose her without ever having had her.
“Why can’t I make that decision for myself? What if you’re wrong? What if I hate kids?”
I do appreciate each single one of them!
