I want no part of it. This dating scene. I go out and watch the men watch the women, the women watch the men, the women watch the women, the men watch the men. I see that he likes her and makes a go and she shuts him down. I see that she is giggling and reaching out her hand but he walks away. I see a conversation spark and all seems to be going well but suddenly one of them has to go to the bathroom and that is the end of it. They dance away from each other the rest of the night feeling the unspoken rejection. I see the wedding ring on his finger that he doesn’t seem to remember. The one that she is ignoring completely. I see two slink off into the middle of the night and wonder if it’ll be an awkward morning or the start of forever. If there even is a forever. I’m so jaded.
