Two years ago, my husband died suddenly from a brain aneurysm. Ever since then, my friends and co-workers have been trying to get me to start dating again. They send me Facebook pages, give me phone numbers, try introducing me to friends of friends, you name it. My husband was my best friend and the love of my life, we were married for 20 years and I have zero interest in dating anyone. I have said this in plain English to everyone. Nobody is paying me any mind, they say things like "You're too young to lock it up and throw away the key." and "It's not good for you to be alone so much." I usually ignore the Facebook links and don't write the phone numbers down. Last night was the last straw. It was "girl's night" with my friends and one of them allegedly "ran into" a man she knew and dragged him over to our table. It was so obvious that this encounter was anything but random. I was polite to the man, nothing more. At one point everyone else was getting drinks or going to the bathroom so the man and I were sitting alone together. He said "I hear you're pretty desperate for a good f*ck. I don't mind helping you out with that even though you really aren't my type, we could exchange numbers for booty calls or something." KABOOM! I threw my drink in his face and unleashed a spate of vindictive that half the bar could hear, including my so-called friends. He called me some choice names, turned to the friend of mine responsible for this and said "You said she was horny and up for anything!"
I may never speak to these people again. I thought they were my friends, but it's pretty clear that they don't know me at all! I'm hurt and angry and the whole situation has just left me even lonelier for my husband.
