Four Last First Dates

I’m the last woman standing in the “Last First Date” pact with my friends, and it looks like Cupid’s playing hard to get.

It’s not like I haven’t been trying to find The One. I’ve been speed dating like it’s an Olympic sport, but a love match is still out of reach. You see, I’ve had my share of love and loss, and at 30, playing the lead in an unrequited love saga was definitely not my plan.

But that’s exactly where I find myself, wanting more with Ryan Jones, a walking, talking romantic riddle. He’s a perfect blend of Prince Charming and Thor (minus the hammer, obviously), but his mixed signals could give anyone whiplash.

Take for instance the night Ryan plays my hero against a sleazebag and follows it up with a kiss that flips my world upside down. With him, it’s a temperature rollercoaster, from boiling point one moment to deep freeze the next.

But it doesn’t stop me falling for him.

I need to know if Cupid is finally aiming his arrow at us, or are me and my Hot Mess Thor doomed by both our pasts?
