According to Lisa, she was initially reluctant to meet Jim until she was reminded by her friend that she had been alone for too long.

The deal was that the couple would just meet for a drink and Jim would have to ask Lisa out the same evening if he happens to like her. On Lisa’s part, she will have to accept the offer if she liked him in return.

Their next date happened a couple of weeks later and according to Jim, he was desperate to get into a serious relationship with Lisa for fear that she may meet another man. His major reason for clinging onto her was that Lisa has been through a lot in life and any woman who could survive such hardship would be apt in handling “the train wreck that is Jim Cramer”.
