You wave to the two happily married men who own the puppy grooming place next door and you skip around the young couple fighting with their toddler to duck into the coffee shop. Kind of cute and fun to flirt with, but you ponder to yourself about how little the two of you actually have in common outside the world of coffee.
Deflated, you pay for your coffee and head out, realizing that none of the people with whom you interact daily are ever going to be true love interests. If so, you may want to consider putting in a word with some non locals.
You may fare much better in the romance department if you consider dating someone outside your zip code.
