Where Aren't They Now: 49

Joan only like to meet new people. When she sleeps at the end of the day, she wipes the slate clean. She never calls or keeps in touch in any way with the people that she meets on a day-to-day basis.

She works from home, writing freelance and submitting the work with as little correspondence as possible. She rarely meets her employers, and if she absolutely must, she tries her best to keep it to one meeting.

She does have family, but they are few and far between. Her parents passed away a couple of years ago, within weeks of one another. She has no siblings and it is fairly easy to duck her extended family.

Clearly there is no room in Joan's life for a steady relationship-- it would be quite impossible. But Joan is not unhappy! She has met so many thousand more people than you or I will ever take true notice of. She does her best to make solid connections with these single-day people in her life, and many of them think of Joan long after they've separated.
