Ah. What is it about the obsessive, the unrequited lover? Karen said her brother wanted her to meet someone. He’s into the same things as her, but he is “way older”: about 10 years. That really rules me out, as if I had a chance in the first place. Karen does like men to be a bit more mature than the ones her age seem to be. That was what I had picked up on, and magnified into a full-blown obsession with a much younger woman. Sigh. Somehow, even knowing all this, knowing how hopeless it is, how pointless and fruitless wanting Karen will ever be, I still would go for the relationship if I could. Is it hope never dies? , or some people never learn?
