how is it that you

how is it that you can get so down after meeting someone only once?
Sarah called me this evening, and cancelled our date in a permanent kinda fashion. And sensibly too, based on the fact that we are four hours apart. She was lovely – saying how she didn’t want to do it, but she couldn’t really see how we would work when we lived so far apart.
So tonight, Matthew, I’ve been feeling pissed off over someone I met only once. I really felt that I was turning a corner. But I’ve been tripped up.
