Sex & the Single Woman: I Get By With a Little Help…

I totally admit it: right now it would be fantastic to have a boyfriend.

While I usually try to ban “shoulda, woulda, coulda” type thoughts from my attitude, this is an exception. After running a marathon and a half last weekend, I am unfortunately left with a stress fracture and a very attractive cast. You may be surprised to find that this is NOT a guy magnet (I kid, I kid) and thus I am struggling to do chores that would normally be no big deal.

I have some feministic opinions, so I normally don’t sit around and wish for guys to do my heavy lifting. This whole situation makes me wonder what would happen if I was to be more seriously hurt. Would I have someone to take care of me?

Hopefully this cast will come off soon and I can leave these worries behind. Still, it makes a girl wonder: what if . . .
