Okay. So, Valentine’s Day has come and gone. And so has International Women’s Day. And guess what: my Gabonese pilot – the one who chased me down Valentine’s Day morning for a date – is still around! Even after I told him I didn’t “do” married men. He texts me all the time now. And I respond! He wants to know if I’ll be around in Malabo, or perhaps in Paris, or somewhere else in West Africa. He wants my picture. And I like it. I’m comfortable with the whole arrangement. It made me wonder if I’m like one of the women the Your Tango article mentioned in Why Do Women Cheat.
