Being single is not what it’s cracked up to be. I divorced my husband about three years ago, because we just couldn’t seem to get along. We didn’t have any of the same goals or dreams, and we had really grown apart over the years. When he started drinking fairly heavily, I decided that it was the last straw and so I filed for divorce. It’s been rough, but I’m doing okay. Sometimes I do get lonely though! And that’s why I signed up for one of those online dating sites. Within literally hours of signing up on the dating site, I already had four different men asking me out on dates. It was crazy. I ended up going out with a guy who owns a local heating and air conditioning business, and at first I really liked him. I mean, he was an HVAC professional, he owned his own HVAC business, and he seemed to have it all together. Plus he was pretty cute. Well, about an hour into the date, I realized that he had absolutely nothing to talk about except his work. He kept going on and on about air conditioning units, ventilation ducts, boiler systems, and something called a mini-split unit. Now, I’m all for learning new things, but I think that he was more or less married to his job. The only thing I could talk about with him was the setting on my thermostat! Needless to say, I haven’t gone out with him again. I hope that if I call for maintenance on my A/C unit someday, he doesn’t show up at my door.
