A plankton friend came round for a Saturday night in with a fellow plankton ie. me. We discussed our different approaches to the problem: whilst I am pro-active, she is more passive. Neither approach seems to be doing either of us any favours.
She says she doesn’t go out like I do and she never meets anyone but even so she does have one man who is keen on her. Alas, she cannot endure the idea of seeing him naked. End of story. Nothing she can do. Then she admits she cannot be ready for a relationship at all because the thought of seeing anyone without their clothes on gives her the heebeegeebees.
She slept with a lot of people in her youth but says she did not fancy most of them. She doesn’t want to do the same, now, in her late forties. On top of the pain there would now also be indignity. People, she says, advise her “to have some fun”. What, she asks, is the “fun” in sleeping with men you don’t fancy?
