I have to laugh because I'm SO rusty at dating! It's been 20 years. I'm a little overweight but I do wear makeup.
So--I got a leak and called my home warranty folks. They sent a totally adorable guy over to fix my leak. Throughout the course of the hour that he was there he told me I had the prettiest hair and eyes, called me babydoll (which I thought was cute because he apologized as soon as he said it), and my neighbor who came to see what was up--even said that he was flirting.
I've been divorced now for several months--but before that, I've been alone for almost two years--ex left us high and dry well over a year ago (seems like ten) and before that, made himself incredibly scarce--he was never ever home. During that time, I've done nothing. No dates, no flirting, nothing. This is new territory.
Now here's the thing: cute plumber left some tools behind. What do I do? My neighbor said: duh, you have his cell number because he called to let you know he was on the way. She's right! He didn't have a ring on and the subject of on-line dating came up he said something like: I've tried that, and I've tried church, too. In reference to meeting people. He DIDN'T say: I met my wife this way...or anything like that. Neighbor says call him and offer to return tools over a drink somewhere. If nothing else, returning the tools would be the nice thing. But I don't want to look pushy. Plus, my kids are young--7 and 9---I have pics of them all over the house--but maybe he's not into a woman with kids? I mean, he did see their bedrooms on the way to the master bath where the leak was coming from. I'm not really looking for anything serious--but dinner would be nice. I have to admit though, he was so cute--I think he could do better than me in the looks department...and he might be a couple of years younger. Ugh.
