I received what I thought was an odd text message last night. He said the police had just left his home. He wanted to know if I was available to talk. The reason I thought this was strange was because I had met this man twice. His message sounded like there was a serious situation going on, but I found it strange that he wanted to talk to me about it. I have noticed lately that if I talk or text with a man more than twice, we seem to be in a relationship. I think this is symptomatic of a pervasive sense of isolation many of us feel. We want to feel connected to someone.
