Colleen is an attractive woman in her forties who’s decided it’s time to meet new people. Recently divorced, she’s a little nervous, but excited for new experiences and possibilities. Unsure where to start, Colleen reaches out to a few of her girl friends to arrange plans for Saturday night.

Attempt #1 is Colleen’s best gal pal from the office. Samantha is also recently divorced, but unlike Colleen, she has completely surrounded herself with work. “You know, I would but I will be out of town this weekend for a conference and open house, and have that retreat the following weekend. How does your schedule look in a month?”

Colleen doesn’t think much of it and tries again. “Who gets lucky on their first attempt, anyway?” she muses as she dials.

Attempt #2 is Colleen’s best friend from grad school. Erin has college-aged children and has much more availability these days. “I’m so sorry,” she sighs. “The hubby and I are doing date night this Saturday. We’ve just been so busy lately, I can’t even tell you the last time we’ve had a meal together.”

Feeling a little disheartened, she shakes it off and scrolls through her phone looking for another number.

Attempt #3 is her best and oldest friend, her sister Karen. “She’ll be up for a few drinks this weekend!” She thinks hopefully. Karen is married with middle school-aged twins with rather complicated extracurricular schedules. “I’d love to go out with you,” she says. “But the girls have soccer tournaments this weekend.”

Discouraged, Colleen opens a bottle of wine and settles in for another night of reruns on the couch. She comes to the realization that dating has changed drastically in the last few years. Meeting people isn’t as easy as it was in her younger years.
