Well, I've had a couple of hit or misses. Fred, a fellow I was talking to happen to mention that he is really 57, not 47 like his profile stated. No this a different guy, the other was named Wes. Hated to hear that because he was very interesting and we had a lot in common. Maybe I'm being too picky, but really, if you can't be honest about your age, then what else will they be dishonest about? So he won't be contacted again. Oh well, moving on.
I've been talking/flirting with a guy named Norm, on both Manhunt and Adam4Adam for a while now. We had set up 3 times to met, which he canceled all three. All were valid reasons, but I was ready to call it quits with him. We chatted after the last cancelation and I gave him one more chance. I let him know if he missed this one, it was over.
We had set up a time of 4pm on Sunday at McDonald's. I honestly figured he would cancel this one too, so my expectation level was very low. Despite all of our chatting online, and a seemingly common interest in each other, I truly had my doubts. Thankfully, going with my gut instinct and not heeding my coworker/friend's advice was the correct thing to do.
A very handsome man, 6'2", with Carolina blue eyes that sparkled showed up, with a firm handshake and a big smile. Just like his profile stated. Just like his pictures reflected. We quickly ordered our small ice cream treats and found an out of the way corner to sit and proceeded to talk non stop for almost 2 hours! He is truly amazing! I rubbed his stubble short hair on his head. Laughed often. Smiled and grinned a great deal. I felt that tingle that lets me know I'm on the right track. Quite honestly, I was blown away by him.
After sadly parting, down the road a piece, he texted me, "I'm at a traffic light. Thanks for a nice time."
A couple of hours later, we were on line to each other. We messaged back and forth for over 2 hours. We both confessed to being very interested in each other. How lucky we are to have finally met after many snafus. And how we can't wait to see each other again. I'm happy with Norm so far. We have made plans for several other dates. Discussed many interest and the normal stuff newly connected people do. It feels good. Comfortable. Right. Only time will tell. Both of our intentions are clear and out in the open. I'm quite smitten with the fella, I don't mind saying. He seems to be with me too according to his messages and text. And I believe him. Fingers crossed y'all......
