What Does It Mean to Be ‘Ready’ for a Relationship?
I am officially the last single person in my friend group. How did this happen? It feels like just yesterday we were being rejected from Rayaand now suddenly everyone is scouting for wedding venues upstate —except me. When I was younger, I took it for granted that my friends would always be available for hungover brunches and emergency threesomes. For instance, for years now my friends and I have spent summer weekends at a shared beach house on Fire Island. I get that they want to have sex on their vacation, but where am I supposed to jerk off? This is my vacation too, people!
Six months after her divorce, Jo Delivery service, a project manager at a academe in Madison, Wisconsin, thought she was ready to date. She had conjugal her high-school prom date a day after graduating from college, and they were together for 19 years ahead of splitting up. I just sat around looking at my computer thinking, Can you repeat that? just happened here? But there was a whole lot going on all the rage my brain that I may not have been consciously aware of.
