So having said I was uninterested in dating, I met a man for coffee this morning. There is a story behind this, of course. This man is connected socially to my landlords and I said I would meet him before I put the moratorium on dating. They asked about him and I caved.
We had a pleasant coffee and conversation, no fireworks but just fine. He likes to dance and it would be fun to see how this rather conservative person manifests dancing. At any rate, we get out to the parking lot after chatting and he hops into his huge SUV. This is the second rather conservative man I have met here who drives a in-excusably large SUV. Both men are divorced with grown children who no longer have an apparent reason for driving these gigantic gas guzzling automobiles!
It just makes me want to vomit.
Perhaps I am being judgmental here but, really, this act of driving some giant car without a real purpose just seems egotistical and un-thinking. What about the environment? What about practicality?
Both of these men are wealthy and could probably afford any regular car they would want so why stick with these horrible, giant cars?
I know I said that any two people can have a relationship given the right qualities and a willingness to communicate BUT this seems to be a pretty serious indicator of core values.
I drive a 2004 Honda Civic Hybrid. Do you think it is possible that I could live harmoniously with a man who drives a huge, honking’ SUV?
