Follow Sarah, a single mom of two, on her online dating journey…
the good…the bad…and the hilarious.
ROSE – “Good morning. So how was your evening out with Harry?”
ROSE – “Yes, but a mother can never get tired of hearing how much she’s appreciated dear. ” Rose smiles. “Now go on before you’re late, but knowing you, you already are.”
MARK (Shouting in Sara’s direction) – “Sarah!”
SARAH – ‘Hi Mark.” Sarah walks over to the cooler and grabs a water, then walks to the counter, where Mark is answering the phone.
NICOLE (Giggling deviously hard) – “Well, if that were the case my brother would be the first one up in here like “Heyyyy, How you doing?” (making the Wendy Williams “how you doing face”) Sarah and Nicole laugh out loud together, as everyone in the locker room stares at them. Nicole looks around annoyed at everyone in the locker room. NICOLE – “Yes, it was funny. Running for penis. You had to be there.” Sarah and Nicole look at each other and giggle more, but quietly as they walk out of the locker room and head over to the treadmills.
NICOLE – ” Yeah, I hope you didn’t think we forgot. So how was it?”
(2008 Northern New Jersey)
Sarah is a 36 year old, single mom of two daughters, who is trying internet dating for the first time. She is on her way to a first dinner date, traveling a route in which she’s unfamiliar. She is originally from a town in South Carolina with two traffic lights so driving to a new big city can be a challenge for Sarah. She drives and scans the highway for signs, then reaches over to the passenger seat in frustration for a print out of the directions. She reads over the directions and looks back at the highway signs, then pulls up to the toll to get a ticket and continues.
SARAH – (talking to self and glancing down at Mapquest directions)”I so need a GPS. Oh okay, I need to stay on 78 East to Columbus road. Okay, I need to get over to the left.” Sarah quickly realizes that two eighteen wheelers have blocked the lane Sarah needs to cross to get over. Sarah begins to panic because all signs ahead are 95 North and 95 South. “C’mon…I need to get over! You’ve gotta be shittin’ me!” Sarah misses her exit and continues onto the wrong highway. “Nooo…oh nooo! Shit, shit, shit!” (Banging on the steering wheel) Sarah sees a sign reading next exit 3 miles. She glances at the time and realizes that she is already 15 minutes late as it is, and becomes so frustrated. Being through this many times before, Sarah begins to feel the start of an orgasm brought on by her frustration. She tries to suppress it, but she knows it only makes it more intense, so she begins to just breathe with it, slow and deep breaths, still focusing on the road. She decides to ride it out. As she climaxes, she let’s out high pitched moan with a tremor along with several deep breaths, trying to keep her eyes from rolling in the back of her head.
There is an older couple in a car passing Sarah on the highway. The elderly lady seated on the passenger side looks out of the passenger side window, nodding her head matter-of-factly, then glances over to her husband who happens to be driving. Elderly lady “See dear, I’m not the only one who enjoys a good sing-a-long during the car ride.” The elderly woman’s husband looks past his wife out of the passenger side window at Sarah with a perplexed look then smiles. He looks back at the road ahead shaking his head and responds, “Well if you looked like that I’d be singing too.” Elderly lady elbows husband and looks ahead angrily.
Sarah, still exasperated from her orgasm, she gets off at the next exit, pulls up to a traffic light next to a black SUV, honks her horn to get their attention, rolls down the passenger side window. The driver rolls down his window. SARAH, “Excuse me. (Slightly panting) Can you tell me how to get to 10th and Erie?” The two guys in the SUV stare at Sarah for a moment before speaking, with slight confusion.
DRIVER- “I can take you there if you want?”
PASSENGER (Whispering and nudging the driver)- “Hell yeah!”
DRIVER- “If you want me to, Mami, I’ve got you.”
Sarah notices how attractive they both are, their Puerto Rican flag hanging on the rear view mirror and the sounds of Latin music spilling out of their window. Sarah, still light-headed from her orgasm is apprehensive, but is anxious to reach her destination. She glances at the road ahead. SARAH- “Well, okay. Would you? Thank you so much!”
As Sarah sits in the restaurant parking lot, she looks in her driver side mirror. She fixes her hair, reapplies lip gloss, adjust her breasts, looks down and glances down at her crotch area, looks back up into the mirror and sighs. Inside the restaurant, Sarah walks in and searches the bar for her date. He waves her over to their table. Anticipation comes over Sarah as she approaches her date. All of the men in the bar watch her every move, as her hips dip with each step. She walks up to her date and greets him with a hug and kiss. He then helps her remove her coat and asks her to have a seat. Brad is Sarah’s date for the evening, and this is his first time meeting Sarah.
SARAH- “I’m so sorry for…” Brad interrupts with a smile.
BRAD- “Don’t worry about being late.” Brad looks at the waiter standing by. The waiter approaches.
WAITER- “Good evening. May I start you off with something to drink?”
SARAH- “Absolutely! I so need a drink. Red would be perfect!” Waiter hands her a wine list.
WAITER- ” This Cabernet I have is really nice.” Sarah nods in agreement, and hands the menu back to the waiter. WAITER- “Very well.”
Waiter leaves the table. Sarah exhales one last time.
SARAH- “First, thank you and again I want to apologize for being late.”
BRAD- “Don’t worry about it. You’re here now, and that’s what counts. So tell me about yourself” as he smiles at Sarah.
Sarah takes a deep breath and with a slight devilish grin, SARAH- “Well, I get lost a lot.”
