False ImpressionsLack of confidence and misdirection results in missed opportunities that we will regret a lifetime. Frank, 27 years of age, was a reasonably good looking guy with brown hair and about six feet tall, worked as a marketing designer for an advertising agency. Living in the city reduces leisure time and for most, it is a repeated work and home daily schedule. Rosie was a beautiful girl with dark skin, about 24, a bit short and well-shaped with olive skin, worked in a cafe that Frank would stop every morning to buy his coffee. Every time he would attempt to pay her, he would mispronounce his words, and fumble with the coins causing her to laugh and slowly become red in the cheeks. It was clear to Rosie that Frank liked her; however, he unknowingly presumed that she was dating a co-worker who was in fact her cousin. Rosie often felt that Frank had belonged to another as he never attempted to ask her out. For the both of them, they often longed for a meaningful relationship that would certainly add some pleasure to a bland life in the city. There are many types of dating sites and one in particular was focused on the city in which they lived. Jack, Frank’s co designer, suggested that his friend joined the site since Jack had many successful dates. Considering the advice, Frank joined the site that night and after running an eligibility search, he found Rosie listed as a single compatible female. Strangely, at first he thought that she lived a secret life but everything was clarified after viewing her profile and seeing a picture with her presumed boyfriend captioned “My favourite cousin”. Rosie on the other hand, received a notification that someone viewed her profile and upon seeing Frank, she blushed. Seeing that Frank had so much in common with her and was single, Rosie sent a friend request. Immediately Frank accepted and began a conversation which after 7 months, resulted in the happy couple moving in their new apartment together. In addition to their happy ending; Rosie was going to school part time and ventured into journalism after graduation and Frank got promoted just in time for the birth of their son.
