Gulp. This one is really, really nice.
I was on Are You Interested on facebook, and I clicked on this one guy's profile who had clicked that he was interested in me, and when I clicked through to his normal facebook profile I saw we had about 6 mutual friends and he looked kinda familiar, so I went through his photo albums since he had so many public ones available to peruse. There was one friend who kept appearing in his photos who just made my stomach flip. Just sooooo my type. Not too hunky or handsome in any obvious way, tall and broad shoulders and nondescript looking in clothes, some scruffy facial hair at times, ridiculous blonde mop of hair that is too-long and kinda floppy and he has to tuck it behind his ears. Thick black rimmed rectangular glasses
and in his bathing suit he is super athletic and muscular in the chest/arms but like I said, nondescript looking in clothes since he's tall and broad shouldered so you'd just think he was slim, but underneath no no, there's plenty of sportiness and evidence of gym workouts.
I just loved his photos so much I can't explain it. So I messaged him on facebook. I friended him. He wrote back quite defensive about who I was and how I found him and I explained to some extent (not to this extent like I just explained to ya'll). He relaxed but didn't accept my friend request and we sent messages back and forth on facebook. Then I asked him straight out to come meet me for a drink since we live 5 minutes from one another. He said yes, and we found ourselves face to face at a local pub having a cup of late-evening tea and talking on couches.
Gulp. Wow. He's really intelligent, master of sciences in engineering, owns a nice home nearby, lives alone, no kids, exactly one year younger than me but the man LOOKS about 5-7 years older than me so I find myself not caring about my preference for older men. Project manager at a big company. Loves to travel to interesting places and must do so for work often .....and he just keeps my brain hopping with the things that come out of his mouth and how not-what-I-expected they were. quirky guy. But fun and seemingly a warm man. Has a tight bond with his 2 year old neice from his just-my-age sister. Actually his entire extended family is pretty tight, and no one in his family has ever divorced. The conversation just did not lull and we sat there for two hours. A couple of times he seemed to break out into a very huge ear-to-ear grin where his eyes even twinkled, so the feedback vibe was that he was having a very nice time talking to me. We continued after finishing our teas another hour, basically until the place closed and he had told me ahead of time that it woudl have to be *quick* because he was very tired and had to get up early in the morning and it didn't end up being quick so that was cool. Good sign.
At one point he asked me, since I was married to a foreigner, if I had any tips about that, like was it a bad
idea to marry a foreigner?
(FYI, I played dumb and answered honestly about my thoughts about it) and at another point we talkeda bout how people move in together so quickly and how I wasn't looking to rush
into anything serious and he joked, "So I can't move in with you tonight?"
I said to call me sometime and that was that.
The suspense of waiting for him to call is killing me........... I don't have his number or anything but he has mine. Sitting back and just waiting is SO NOT MY STYLE.
Where is the biting-fingernails-off-smilie while you wait for someone to call?????
