I agreed to meet Tina at her favorite bar in Harvard Square. I sat on the stool drinking a double scotch while hoping she wouldn’t show up. It’s not that she wasn’t beautiful, she was, but there was something about her personality that rubbed me the wrong way. There were times that she was a 14 year old girl trapped in a gorgeous 24 year old body.
I also felt ashamed that my physical needs overrode my common sense. I just wanted to be with a woman and I was willing to take advantage of someone who had an uncontrollable crush on me. I wasn’t used to be pursued, I was always the pursuer.
