Ben and Tim are "preying" for sure, though in slightly different ways. I don't think I quite got what was happening at the beginning, but quickly caught up once the story got going. Being a romantic, I would have liked to see love win out at the end. Interesting story.
This might be the opening of a short story or novel.

We all met our mates in a variety of ways. Mine walked into a church service I was conducting with her family and her three small children. That was 56 years ago. For several weeks/months it never even occurred to me to think of her as someone to date. But one month after our first date, we were married.
