Spotting an interesting prospect online and then after 26 text exchanges and maybe a phone call or two, meeting her in a public place. But more often than not, something proved incompatible. Sometimes I managed to meet someone in the wild, my preferred method.
Free-range women are always a better bet. My last relationship was with a woman I met, right after the pandemic took off, in Palisades Park — when I was wearing shorts! These knobby, sixtysomething knees are the stuff of nightmares. But how quaint is that? Together we were able to weather the pandemic in our own little bubble — though it burst once the world opened up.
She was considerably younger, ready to lead a life of drama and renewed adventure, and I just needed a nap. Affairs column. Then, I was back to square one — reading and writing all day, as I did before the plague and during the plague and will probably continue to do until the publishing industry sends me a cease-and-desist order. They drove up from the South Bay on their own — so I never had to pick anyone up — and we were all glad to see each other.
The conversation flowed, as did the wine, and at no point was there any tension in the air, no wondering where the evening was going, how it would end, who might have an undisclosed sexually transmitted disease or insane ex-lover still stalking his prey. And back in the parking lot, we did that air-hugging thing. But who was Sue going home with? Her husband, of course! And who was I going home to? Watson the cat. My neighbor travels so much the cat treats our ading units as one. Affairs: Sex with my roommate ended horribly. And it always works like a charm.

Plus, they love, love, love hearing my horror stories from the strange world of Singledom. The more off-putting the tales, the happier they are heading home. Not a day goes by that I do not miss him or think about whether we might still someday have our chance. She ordered three desserts, just so she could take a bite of each one?
And expected you to pay for it? Affairs: What the pandemic taught me about dating. As I enter the original, in-person L. But when I turn down the covers at night the housekeepers do such a great job, it feels like getting into a hotel bed and pick up the remote — thank God for Turner Classic Movies — I am secure in the knowledge that I have seen some people I genuinely like, had a stress-free time and even did a good deed.
Nor have I entirely given up on romance. The enterprising real estate agent down the street, having given up on persuading me to sell my condo, is convinced she can broker a marriage for me with one or another of her single friends. I wonder what the commission on that will be? And as for a warm, comforting presence in the bed right now, well, for that there is always Watson. Affairs chronicles the search for romantic love in all its glorious expressions in the L. LAAffairs latimes. You can find submission guidelines here. Affairs: How a trip to Death Valley healed my broken heart.
