OK, my dear friends, what would you do???
There’s this girl I like, let’s call her Vanessa. That’s not what I call her IRL, because that’s not her name; but we’ll call her ‘Vanessa’ here. OK?
So, it’s like this: I like Vanessa and she likes me. Neither of us considers the other ‘sweetheart’ material; but she’s smart, and affectionate and fun to be with and; well, let’s put it this way: I could do a lot worse for company on a Saturday night!
