After my girlfriend and I broke up after being together for three years I was feeling a bit sheepish about getting back into the dating scene.
- I’m not getting any younger, and I didn’t have a clue how to approach the rapidly changing dating scene.
Luckily for me I had a close friend of mine from work set me up with one of his friends who was also recently single. Once we met at the restaurant and began to dive into some conversation I was feeling as if we were total opposites and had nothing in common. We didn’t share any ground on most of the topics that I brought up and I was getting nervous that she was going to excuse herself to the “restroom” and I would never hear from her again. Not long after I brought up my career working as a certified HVAC repair tech and everything seemed to change for the better. She immediately became interested and was asking me all about my career. She went on to tell me that her father and all three of her siblings worked as HVAC repair techs for a living, so she knew what she was talking about. Conversation that was once extremely stagnant and awkward changed from smooth and easy once the topic of HVAC repair had been brought up. Things ended up going so well that we have another date scheduled for tomorrow. I would have never guessed that my job working as an HVAC repairman would have helped me find another potential partner but I am happy that it did, and hopeful that it will.
