She's slept with eight men - four were her boyfriends and two were guys she was "just dating." They seemed interested but faded away after sex.The other two were drunken one-night stands during college, before she knew better - or more accurately, when she learned better.
In fact, she'd met one of the girls she was with tonight that way.As the 32-year-old gets out of the cab in front of the lounge where she'll meet her friends, the sharp cold bites at her face.It reminds her of the time three years ago when she first met her ex boyfriend. She'd seen him looking at her earlier across the bar she was at with her friends, but he didn't approach.The 23-year-old has had one serious boyfriend in her life.She slept with him during all of the 3 years they dated, until he broke up with her soon after they graduated from college.It is the middle of winter and a light snow is just starting to fall.Both women are dressed up and heading out to meet with their respective friends for some drinks. Both are single and want little more than to ultimately find true love.She recently had an exciting night of sex with a guy she met in a bar who was incredibly attractive.He had seemed interested in her - he was even affectionate in bed; but now he isn't calling.They've arrived early so the crowd is still a bit sparse, but this gives them time to actually hang out and talk before anyone else arrives and they get involved in other conversations.As the 32-year-old orders her drink, she chats with the bartender for a bit, because she knows that even a brief conversation with a stranger (male or female) will get her into a more social mood, which might help later if any men want to talk to her.
