Thank you for your honest assessment of a forty-eight year old women looking for a meaningful relationship.

I think the expression "you don't know what you don't know" has meaning here. Human relationships are so random. For example, you may be in the grocery store and some creepy man may approach you and say something dumb. It's very hard for us men to burst that bubble around women. Give the guy a second chance. It may workout for you. Or the man may have a good looking eligible brother.
