There may be one or two of you out there who remember my good friend Lucia and her dating stories. This one in particular is sure to go down in the annals of time as one of the Worst Dates Ever. Well, I am happy to tell you that there is a nice, new man in her life. He is a kind, thoughtful, successful, generous, and compassionate gentleman. Cupid has hit his target, and he's completely gaga over her. And Lucia? Well, she is just not so sure....
I'd like to strangle her, but I actually understand. If there's no spark, then there's no spark. Why do women like the bad boys so much? The drama? The excitement? Lord knows I have had my fair share as well.
When I was in college, my mother had a wealthy suitor with similar qualities as Lucia's new man. And my mother had no interest. At all. I remember one day talking to my brother about it, and I said, "You know, T, you'd think for a hundred million dollars she could muster up some kind of feelings for the guy. I mean, really, what is wrong with her?" My brother responded without skipping a beat, "For a hundred million dollars, I could call him Daddy."
I still have hopes for Lucia and her new friend. She deserves a nice man in her life. The bad boys have taken up waaaay too much space and time. Any bad boy experiences out there?
