Last night, I had dinner with my first girlfriend.
We fell in love when we both were fifteen. She deflowered me; I didn’t deflower her.
Last night we talked about her two children, her husband, her boyfriend, friends from high school, my girlfriend.
She said: “A husband should give his wife space to find out what she needs, my husband wasn’t prepared to do that, that’s what made the divorce unavoidable. But then again it’s not easy for a husband when his wife is impressed by another man.”

“It must be difficult for a husband,” I said.

“Is your girlfriend easily impressed by other men?”

“Not easily,” I answered.
