f2fb friend #186 sonali srinath walks into the bar and EVERYBODY stares. she wears a pink dress and a smile that makes you feel like someone very gently reached into your chest and replaced your heart with tiny firecrackers. she’s confident and bold, dainty and mischievous. i hadn’t seen much of her since five years ago when i directed her in a benefit show but i figured she has always been this way. i didn’t realize that she had been hiding a world of hurt.
her twenty year marriage broke up and when she thought there would never be another love for her, she found him–the one–on an indian matrimonial website. he’s a tamil brahmin and they have been married for slightly more than a year. i am so happy for them both!
however, i have my own new man in my life too–
jack was given to me by a nonfacebook friend who read about my inability to get anywhere without getting lost along the way. i am grateful. i am grateful to all my facebook and nonfacebook friends who have helped me. today i am also thinking of my gratitude to ben gonzalez, marissa durbin, max tam, and mc kato for creating a page on facebook that’s just for my project. f2fb is a page that you can like and share. although i’m still unsure whether like and share mean the same thing as what they meant when we were young and foolish and didn’t have facebook.

A guy named Jack is in my friend’s life as well. Not only does he interrupt at inappropriate moments, but he also doesn’t seem to be able to learn to do things her way. Three days in a row he tried to force his own way on her when she really knew better. Since I’m still looking, I hope this is not typical of men in general.
