This past week, I again stepped outside my comfort zone and asked a female coworker out on a date. Before I could finish asking, an apologetic smile appeared on her face. I paused my rehearsed speech.
I’m flattered, but I just got married last month.
That’s it. I’m taking a break. If someone falls into my lap, I’ll jump all over the opportunity. But I’m not going to actively pursue anyone for a while.
Just please don’t ask me to define a while.
