A 9 to 5 Person

Nothing wrong with this, but she was not one of this kind of person. She was a passionate being, up to challenges all the time, like a warrior who sleeps dressed ready to go at the first call. And this is why she was still by herself, for the amazement of many of her friends.  She was in her forties but feeling as if she were at the beginning of her life. This is why she was attracted by younger ambitious men who wanted more from their lives. She realized very quickly men in her age became too quickly too laid back, and she couldn’t see herself with a champion of the tv-beer-couch team.

He was standing in front of her in amazement ready to promise her the moon. She knew there were 99% chances he would give up much earlier than he imagined himself. During the last 8 years the story kept on repeating and she had lost any patience in this area of her life. This is why she decided to tell each of them at the very beginning that No, she was not a 9 to 5 person. They all, one after another, agreed on this at the beginning and yes, she realized they were ready to agree with anything to get her in their bed. Fair enough, because she knew it.

She also knew none of them was more resistant than another; none of them would be so patient, in any case no more than one month, this was the very best they could do. So, she decided not to bother anymore. She just enjoyed her busy life, very hectic though and was dreaming of a guy with the same crazy schedule as hers. She could not understand why some human beings felt like clinging to each other all the time. And now, he was standing there staring at her. She had seen him before, found him attractive, but felt something was missing in the equation therefore she knew he was not quite her type. She learnt to detect them in a wink and even if she knew he did not correspond for several reasons, not only because of her crazy working time, she decided to give him a chance. Everything went nicely for about one month and a half then he lost patience and a first quiet fight burst out. Reproaches flew away, he told her she was not doing any effort, she retorted she had warned him they could see her working time changing with very short notice and she couldn’t do anything about that: the usual nasty discussion going straight to the end point. Not only was she a very active woman, she also needed to get to the pay day graciously. Still, she knew she had made some efforts, and this is why she got things piling up on her to-do list. Then she started to take her time back to get things sorted out  and his discontent started growing up. She had, once more, feelings of frustration invading her, because the story just kept on repeating and she could do nothing about it, nothing at all. She had the confirmation a 9 to 5 man is unable to understand a round-the-clock woman, and she guessed the other way round was also true. End of the story…
