As my friend went on about everything that attracted her to a certain guy as well as the one critical point that made her feel that it won’t work out between them, I listened carefully. And patiently. She had been over it quite a few times. Her inner tussle was proof enough that she so badly wished “only if” all was well.
That is when I asked her, “What if he IS the one?”
She was finally silent. For quite some time.
If some miraculous force could make it clear to her who her one was and it indeed turned out to be this guy, then was she willing to let go of the obstacle standing between them which obviously meant so much to her?
“Then I am s****ed!” she replied.
