I return home from my Banker lunch feeling good about myself, something I haven’t felt in a while. Having a desi man friend is refreshing and exactly what I need right now. 

I sit down at the computer and read through profiles until one catches my breath. The potential groom (Quan Jock) writes: Vacation in the Caribbean -$2000. Two dozen red roses - $200. Candlelight dinner with the right partner - PRICELESS. Professionally secure man working in investment bank as vice president. Easy going, ambitious and confident person living life to the fullest. I like new things and cultures, have varied interests and a liberal outlook on life.

Well, well, well doesn’t Quan Jock sound A-B-S-O-L-U-T-E-L-Y fabulous!!! And we have LOTS in common. We’re the same age and Punjabi. He’s from Delhi (where I go every other year) and cute. I mean, Quan Jock isn't gorgeous like Don’t be Scared (Post 115)  but he’s attractive with nice features, fair skin, and has ALL of this hair. From his photos where he wears jeans and a polo shirt, he looks slim, bordering on skinny. All of which triggers my triggers my body issues and has me worrying that I may outweigh him. Thank goodness he’s 5’-7”, so he's at least taller than me! And if he’s a great conversationalist with a sexy voice…swoon. With a click I send a notice of interest and log off.

Banker’s dare to call Reindeer still lingers. Banker believes Reindeer had a panic attack and disengaged and doesn’t know how to re-direct. So the part of me that STILL thinks Reindeer is the one (I don't know what is wrong with me) wants to believe what the Banker suggests is true. After all Banker is a desi man from India just like Reindeer.

I decide to wait on calling Reindeer. Let’s see if Quan Jock is interested because he writes like a man, not a boy-child, who is looking for a woman. And as a woman wanting to be found, it is good to have options!

I relate to this. I am a 5'-10" woman living in New York City and it is so hard to find men taller than me! Mostly because the men have issues that I internalize.
