Cast
Emma (35-45) has been back on the dating scene for almost four years and having no luck in finding so much as a date, never mind the love of her life and she’s starting to wonder if there’s something wrong with her. There’s not, the dating scene just sucks. She’s “casually pretty”, kind and has a heart of gold. If only a great guy would come along and recognize that.
Josh (38-45) is Emma’s best friend. In fact, they’ve been friends since they were kids. He’s cute in that geeky kind of way. All he wants is the best for Emma and is trying to encourage her to not give up on love.
Cal (40’s) is Emma’s gay neighbour and is fond of Emma, although Emma is completely clueless to the fact he’s gay. Cal is an upscale casual, trendy kind of guy, but not pretentious. He’s kind and has a good heart and thinks fondly of Emma. (actor must be comfortable with making out with another guy)
