Wendy: Did you get Selena's wedding invitation?
Emma: I sure did. Can you believe she's marrying her high-school sweetheart?
Wendy: What's wrong with that?
Emma: Selena has never dated anyone but Josh. She's missed out on the chance to get to know a lot of guys.
Wendy: You don't have to date a lot to find Mr. Right. The more you date the more you have to deal with break-ups, and that's always hard.
Emma: But don't you have to date a lot to learn about acting appropriately with the opposite sex?
Wendy: That isn't true for everyone. Many people aren't emotionally prepared to handle the feelings of rejection that go along with break-ups. You can figure that out by interacting with people in group settings. Personally, I think you should focus on your own life goals before marriage instead of being involved in complicated romantic relationships.
Emma: OK, OK. So you believe it's best to have lots of friendships but save the serious relationships until you're finally ready for Mr. Right. Is that it?
Wendy: That's about it! Now, how about some cake with our coffee?
