Dating too shy women
Then, by fate (she knows now it was just coincidence), they had both walked out of a bar at the same time (closing time).
She'd been a little tipsy and given in when her girlfriends pressured her to go ask him for his number.
In the back of her mind she knows there will be attractive men out tonight, and she is hoping to eventually meet someone she can date seriously.
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.
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.
However, in the past two years she's really started to see trends and mistakes in her dating history, and she encountered a few ideas in books and online, and these have really changed her outlook. While she knows Manhattan is a horrible place for a single girl to live, she hasn't lost hope yet.
