It was nice to finally meet you this weekend. I enjoyed our conversations about education and parenting and following one’s dreams. I love that you are following your dreams, and in your mid forties pursuing a law degree. I had absolutely no idea that one could get a law degree through distance learning, but I guess that if the University of London can issue a law degree to Nelson Mandela, then they must be a somewhat reputable institution!
Peter, though I enjoyed our conversation, I just can’t see that you could have time in your life for a relationship; you’re working full time, parenting half time, and working on a law degree in your spare time. That part in my profile about being a princess isn’t a joke. One thing that I know absolutely for sure about myself is that I need a fair bit of attention.
In some kind of crazy coincidence, I went out with a trial lawyer a few days before I went out with you, and he assured me that he had plenty of time, because at his firm, the junior lawyers did all the “heavy lifting”. You have a good number of years ahead of you during which time your primary focus will need to be work. You need a woman who will be far less demanding than me.
I wish you well in your pursuit of knowledge and in your pursuit of love.
