Mike reached across the table to examine mine."You were born in 1966? That's so weird."The word rattled around in my head, even after he changed the subject to his upcoming marathon training. The banter that had come so easily seemed stilted in the bar. I said yes, but as soon as I got to the meet-up spot, I wanted to drive away. It wasn't what they were wearing—I was wearing an athletic tank top and hiking pants, same as the other women—but they all seemed so carefree.I didn't know them personally, but I was pretty sure none of them had been divorced—which I had by time I was their age.He also teaches me alot of things In life that is very important.I as well teach him alot of things resolving todays society.
For the next six months, Mike and I were just friends.She is not his wife, she is not mother to his children, she is not his parents' daughter-in-law.Her chance for happiness hinges on a future that is highly uncertain, to say the least. Three years ago, Mike and I met at a coworker's engagement party.Still, when Mike and I went out for drinks, I barely thought about our age gap until our server asked for our IDs. A week later, he invited me to join him and his friends for a hike, followed by a party.
