assumptions

by rantywoman

Last year I dated a man who, upon telling me he didn’t want to have a relationship with me, said he assumed I’d be okay with that.

In my late thirties I dated (if you can call it that) a man who would invite me over to his house for a glass of wine but never out on a real date.  At the end of one of these evenings, he pounced.  Sensing something was off, I suggested a dinner date for our next meeting.  When he balked, we had a discussion in which he said, before trailing off, “I assumed at your age…”

At my age, what exactly?  I am partnerless because I choose to be?  Sex is no longer be a big deal?  I should be happy to get whatever I can?
