“You were handsome, yes, but I don’t like handsome men, thinking they could have whomever they wanted. I wanted to be, then, the one you could not have. I did not lower my eyes like the other girls when I felt you looking at me.”

Austen

Jane Austen goes up to the counter and orders a cinnamon spice latte. The barista is a bore. The man behind her in line orders exactly what she orders; he too is a bore. He is handsome in the conventional sense, but there is no chance they could ever be married.
