Type of Woman

 

Type of Woman

 

 First date jitters

A bouquet of the finest roses

Glasses of wine that will

Remove your instinctual need to remain cautious.

You don’t strike me as the type of woman

Who daydreams about 

Classic romantic gestures and

Wonders if someone will eventually

Find her to be worth all of that trouble.

Second date expectations

Conversations that attempt to 

Puncture the surface

Superficial tendencies temporarily 

Fade away as the possibility

Of a third date seems more likely

You don’t strike me as the type of woman

Who devotes all of their attention

To that one person

And worries about something going wrong

The peaks and valleys of dating

Do not interest you

Finding someone to help you feel grounded

Is neither a desire nor a goal of yours

And that is just something I will have to get used to.
