Several months ago I fell in love with a man c/o Janey and in some senses I think he did with me. It is a long story for another day (soon), but he as good as disappeared from her life as well as mine.
Long Shot still hasn’t replied to her email of several days ago.
Even though she is the best match-maker in all Europe, I sometimes wonder if her efforts with me are cursed.
Not that LS was anything other than an LS. So he remains.
In fact, I think I am deranged even to give him a second thought, not least because I have heard from someone who knows him that he is emotionally distant and emotional distance is hardly a winner when it comes to romance, relationships, even silly notions such as I currently hold.
I never was able to deal with emotional distance. So alienating. Something my boyfriends and husbands never were. I like a man who talks openly and honestly.
Long Shot is necessarily turning into Longer Shot.
Alas. The idea of him was so very compelling. But I guess that was all he ever was. An idea.
