I think there comes a time in your life when one can’t settle. It’s not worth the effort. I’ll give you an example of a typical conversation
Me: I know that I’m just really easy to please.
Friend: [gently] I’m not sure that you are to be honest?
Me: See you and your smug. Seriously. I’m the easiest person ever. Just feed me and respect me and make me laugh…
Friend: Oh! So I know a guy…
Me: Go on….
Friend: He’s not the best looking …
Me: I’m not a lookist
Friend : And he’s got some baggage….
Me: I love children sometimes?
Friend: I mean his mother
Me: I love old people sometimes!
Friend: I’ll set it up then? I’ll leave him a message as he can’t answer calls at work
Me: Wait! Does he work at a prison or McDonalds or something?
Friend: Well no but it’s criminal justice
Me: So a court house? A youth worker? The police? What does he do!
Friend: He’s a lawyer
Me: What the…..defence or prosecution?
Friend: [hangs head] prosecution
Me: I’m sorry but I can’t see it working. We have different values.
Me: Nah. You didn’t tell me we were diametrically opposed politically. I
can’t do it. I bet he’s a Tory! Friend: ………..
Me: OMG why are you like this! Did he vote Leave?
Friend: But, he’s a lovely guy
Me: How? OK no. I can’t do it. I need him to have the ability to empathise with every day people. Can he do that? Huh? can he?
Friend: So it’s a no or a hard no?
