Lily Ray lived a very quiet life in an old country cottage she inherited from her grandmother. It was a charming old house, surrounded by trees, with a small vegetable garden. Lily loved her neighborhood, which was tranquil and safe, with very nice neighbors.
But as peaceful as Lily’s life may have seemed, she did did not feel content. Lily was tired of spending day after day alone. She read alone, she worked in her garden and went for long walks alone, and she slept alone during the long, cold winter nights. One day, Lily worked up the courage to put her profile on a local internet dating website.
To her surprise, she soon began to receive offers from a number of eligible bachelors who were interested in dating her. She began to attend parties and dates, and tried very hard to find a man with whom she could connect. Unfortunately, the dating world was filled with disappointments. She just couldn’t imagine being with any of the men she met.
