Sex & the Single Woman: Taken By Surprise

I love it when people take me by surprise. I am not afraid to admit that first impressions go a long way with me . . . especially if second impressions reinforce my perception.

Lately I’ve been (very pleasantly) surprised to find that guys who I have assumed to be jerks are turning out to be, well, not so rude. And this is kind of a relief.

I love finding new people to hang out with and I always have a great time when I am hanging out with my guy friends. One thing I have learned, however, is that sometimes all it takes is one jerk of a guy to send them all into bro mode. No good.

So when I am taken by surprise and I find out that the guy who was previously not so nice is now a very cool guy and we kind of actually get along . . . All I can say is “awesome.”
