It's been a long time now that he's gone. 

How hard it was to experience everything without a partner. It was easy to avoid everybody, but now after all these years, she was ready to start something new.

The holidays were coming, her yearning to travel grew stronger every month and frankly, she got tired of walking the dog twice a day. He was the one who always took care of the dog.

Some of her friends had tried to play matchmaker, but the situations always ended in disaster, because the men she was introduced to, are not really what she was looking for.

Her local paper featured ads about people wanting to meet someone, but there were no pictures, just romantic promising and what she thought were unreal exaggerations. Some of these add encouraged her to call, but all she got, in the end, was high phone bills.

It was pure coincidence that she ran into Maureen, an acquaintance from one of her Tupperware parties from the time when her husband was still alive.

Over coffee, they talked about the good old times, but the conversation turned quickly to men, marriage, and money. Maureen had never been married but had an active social life, different men for different occasions as she puts it.

'You know' she said, ' I don't want to be tied down right now, you never know when Mr. Right comes along' she said with a happy smile. 'I just call a date, meet someone and see how it works out.'
