conversations with strangers #131


18 people milled around on the sidewalk. An open house was scheduled for 6pm. It was 6:20. A sunglass wearing guy strolled up a couple of minutes later.

Him: *smiles*

Me: *smiles*

Him: So, no agent yet?

Me: Nope. It’s starting to feel like college and the professor’s late for class and we’re just here waiting.

Him: *smiles*

Me: I’m not sure when time expires or when we give up on waiting.

He half shrugged and we lapsed back into silence.

The initial interest, the non-enthusiasm of reality, the quiet silence, the singles waiting lonely outside. Local dating scene or local real estate scene?

Not sure if I should have asked him to grab a drink or to buy a condo together? Apparently I’m not good at navigating dating or real estate waters…
