Man only dating

When Missi got fed up—Why did I get out of a crappy marriage just to be in this crappy relationship?—some new tragedy would happen (his mother died; he was in a motorcycle accident), and she’d be roped back in.When Missi “liked” his profile, he sent her a message right away and called her that afternoon.

Richie liked to say he didn’t “do drama,” but drama seemed to follow him nonetheless.

It got to feel as if every text from him was an announcement of some new disaster: He had to check his daughter Sarah into rehab; he had to put his beloved shih tzu, Thumper, to sleep.

Richie had lingering medical problems from his time in the service, and Missi was constantly having to drop him off at or pick him up from the hospital.

He was always canceling plans, or not showing up when he was supposed to.

A few minutes later, she got a reply from Richie’s friend Chris, who said Richie had been in a car accident.

He was okay, thank God, but the doctors wanted to do some extra testing, since he’d suffered head trauma while in Afghanistan.

The two women didn’t work together regularly, but they knew each other. Maybe he could put her and the girls on his university insurance.

Maybe, he told her, with the benevolent confidence of a wealthy man, she wouldn’t have to work.

Richie told her he was on vacation in Hawaii, but they planned to meet up as soon as he got back.
