When a friend I made in Greece and I were discussing love, he told me he was broken. I said that at this stage of life, if we're not still married, we're all broken. Hopefully, not beyond repair.

The coffee date with bachelor #1 turned into dinner and a walk in Old Town. It was fun. A very nice man. We share some common interests. He's not pompous and didn't talk about himself for hours. I went for connection....but not for fabricating something out of nothing. I paid attention to what he was saying, doing; what I was thinking, what I was feeling, what I was doing. The evening wasn't a bust. But there was no bolt of lightening, not even a little buzz of electricity, really. So much of love is just out there in that invisible surge, the gesture, the sound of a voice, the way you feel when your knees accidentally touch on a bus ride. That's online dating's missing piece.
