It wasn’t the first time she’d gone on a blind date,  but it was the first time she’d used a computer dating agency.
She was nervous, but agreed to meet him in a car lot on top of the supermarket. It was easy enough to find, a public place, and if she didn’t like the look of him or had second thoughts, she could drive away.
In the end, she didn’t have to decide, having waited over an hour and he didn’t show.
She went home disappointed, unknowing he was on the next floor completely baffled as there wasn’t a car in sight.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    i read this and thought about timing in our lives, so often we miss people, opportunities because of timing, of course miscommunication and wrong information may also play a part in your piece here, but I do think sometimes its just not the right time for something to happen, enjoyed the story very much for the feeling it gave me. Thank you.
