Stacey: I have a date with George this Saturday. I can’t wait!

Brad: Have a good time, but you know what the word on the street is about George, don’t you?

Stacey: What?

Brad: He’s not the marrying kind.

Stacey: Oh, he just hasn’t met the right girl yet. When he does, he’ll be ready to settle down.

Brad: I don’t think so. Women who have gone out with him have told me that he’s up front with them: he has no intention of tying the knot – ever.

Stacey: Do you think he’s a commitment phobe?

Brad: I have no idea. I just know that he likes to play the field and anyone who dates him should not try to reform him.

Stacey: I wouldn’t try to reform him. I think he’ll just fall head over heels in love with me and he’ll put his philandering ways behind him.

Brad: Don’t count on it.

Stacey: I’m convinced of it.

Brad: I’m always surprised by the degree to which women can delude themselves when it comes to love!
