Went to the dentist to get my tooth permanently placed, and the girl was excited to see me, yelling, “Hi, Bryan,” while I sat in the waiting area. When she was working on the tooth, I said, “Tell me a story.”

“I don’t have a boyfriend yet.”


“I think I’m beautiful, but no boys like me.”

“Yeah… well what kind of guy are you looking for?”


“You have to have high standards. You can’t just date anyone, unless you want to be unhappy.”

She’s feeling the pressure of being almost thirty and single—why she’s so desperate. Also why she’s scaring any potentials; she probably mentions marriage as her second or third comment on the first date, like so many of these girls.
