“I’ve done this before, looking for a partner or soul mate or someone-to-grow-to-love, and you know what? I’m done with that. Honestly. I’m just looking for some casual sex. A one night stand. Specifically, during December, because it’s a weird season.”
“I don’t respond to creeps, children, married men, or fat people. Sorry. I am that shallow. I might consider couples, if you’re both fit and cute. (Shallow. Really shallow. I’m not kidding about that.)”
She really is that shallow:
“You’re not teasing about the hair? I can do bald, but only if it comes with killer abs.”
This is Will:
“I’m reeling from a recent divorce and incapable of having a meaningful relationship. The only upside to my situation is that after fifteen years of monogamy I get to chase all the strange I want.”
Will has plans:
In this head, she was already naked. Was she going to be covered with freckles? God, yes—freckles everywhere. He would find every single one.
Did I mention, Will has plans?
“See, I’ve only known you for five minutes, and I already know you like to be in control. We’re going to change that.”
Florence likes him:
“You’re very sweet. And cute. Totally as advertised. Fit. Hair. Also, as tall as your profile said, which is a bonus. Do you know that almost all men on dating sites like about their height? They add two inches. And not just to their… you-know-what’s. Seriously.”
But it’s not going to work out:
“You’re so sweet. So hot. But it’s not going to work out. I already know.”
Or is it?
