The other day I was talking to a prospective woman, having a conversation that was potentially portentous.
As a single man, 95 percent of conversations are just conversations. You’re either talking to someone with a utilitarian purpose (“So vehicle 1 was a southbound Ford pickup?”) or with no purpose at all (“I really like the new ‘tails’ design on the penny. It’s classy.”)
But the other 5 percent, those are the ones where a single woman weighs whether you’re worth continuing to talk to, and potentially dating.
One must tread carefully in these conversations.
