The setting was beautiful. One of Sydney's top restaurants. The water gently lapping, the boats bobbing and the buzz of hundreds of people enjoying a balmy winter evening as I strolled along the boardwalk.
The night stretched ahead with a hint of promise. Friendly banter, interesting conversation, which stayed on the light side and a lack of pressure ... no wondering who was single, who was available, who was interested etc. made the whole atmosphere very relaxed. I mean the hard work had been done for us. No awkward setting up of dates, no curling of toes and deep breaths to pluck up the courage to ask for someone's number. No wondering what the intention was. Everyone was really friendly and keen to chat and find out more about each other and the whole evening was spent in a gorgeous, fun, respectful way.
