The article presents dating experience of the author who is an executive. The author states that she received e-mail from a man he had met several months earlier. The man tried to remind the author of his friendly honk. The man with the horn continued to e-mail the author off and on every month or two. But she had been dating someone else, so she declined his advances. By the time she got the honking e-mail again, she had broken up with the previous guy and again felt free to date. Thanks to the fortuitous sighting and communication, the author and the man ended up seeing each other again and dated for several months.
