I chuckled throughout. I had a feeling a disappointment for the MC and a big laugh for me was coming at the end. You didn't disappoint me at all (maybe your MC a bit, but that just can't be helped):)
Oh brother...this was unsettling. You described me to a T. I was even searching for the 1/4 inch overnighter chin hair while I was reading this. :)

Truly, this was probably "spot on" in describing how so many of us "mature" women feel, when and if put in the same situation. I cringed at the ending and being the die hard I am...still found some hope for a romance, since it was over dinner.:) :) :)
You captured your MC's feelings so realistically--and all the work of preparing for a date in later years. Your first place win is well deserved with this skillfully written story. I enjoyed it from start to finish.
