Flirting with 30, is it time to let go of fairy-tales and finally grow up?
Nearly thirty, over-endowed with curves, and under-endowed with boyfriends, you could say that my life is not going to plan. Still hopelessly in love with my childhood friend and neighbor who only sees me as his best pal, it's finally sinking in that if I want a happily ever after I'm going to have to look further afield. Which means putting my feelings for Jack behind me. The shakes and pounding heart should stop sometime, right?
I love Gill. Who wouldn't? She's cute, kind, funny and my side-kick since school. She's suffered with me through my failed marriage and has become a second mom to my six-year-old daughter. I like to make sure she's okay, but suddenly that's not working out for either of us.
I'm pretty darn good at getting my point across in business, but how am I supposed to deal with Gill throwing herself away on the nerdy bank manager? I'm worried that I'll lose her friendship if I tell her what I know and worried that she'll get hurt if I don't. Then there's this other worry. What if I'm just jealous? And what the heck does that mean?
