Rating: 1/5

Kimberely Locke deletes a voicemail from the third young man. He had told her he finished touring and would like to get together to talk. She had burned the merchandise she bought after she found out he had been cheating on her with multiple women. There were no second chances. 

The second young man had been arrogant and expected her to drop everything for him. She had run into him at the mall and he told her he regretted ignoring her. She shook her head and told him it was too late. He had a year to realize he was selfish and get it together. He wasn’t ever going to change. 

The fifth young man, though, was obsessed with basketball. Every weekend was spent watching games on television. Sometimes during the week, she cheered for him while he played on a local team. He stops to talk to her at the gym and says he’s been thinking about her. She walks off the treadmill and says it was good to see him. However, she wasn’t interested in dating again. He shuffles his feet and says goodbye. She sits on the bench and puts her head into her hands. He was a good guy. However, he had to grow up. There was potential there for a long-term relationship. She hopes he’ll talk to her again. He was the only she had dated she missed.
