Six degrees of separation doesn’t exist here
Your date might be new to you, but you almost certainly have another connection. She’s your best friend’s cousin’s co-worker. He grew up in a girl in your yoga class’ hometown. You might not know it yet, but get a couple dates in and soon all will be revealed. Charlotte is a freakishly small big city.

They ghosted. You ghosted. Things got weird. You move past it, until you turn around to see who’s trying to nudge past you at a brewery one sunny Saturday afternoon and bam! There they are again. As The Eagles once crooned, you can check out anytime you like, but you can never leave.
