I have been really cautious here because the past few months, relationship wise at least, have been a mess. So I have not rushed anything & sort of ignored his subtle requests to go for a drink (I sound like a complete cow but it was ignored in a nice way!)
So, after 3.5 weeks of phone conversations & the odd text he said "OK. I know you've told me you don't want to rush into anything but you sound absolutely lush, I really like you & please can I just take you out for a drink? Say yes?" Yes, I was pretty embarrassed but I did say yes because if a man stays in touch for a total now of 5 weeks without pushing for anything then I think that's a pretty good sign of him being decent.
He's been on holiday for the past week & even took the time to phone then, although that was maybe because he was checking the date set for our drink was still ok & I told him I had loose plans to watch paint dry so I might have to cancel. He phoned me to tell me that I could be quite mean & that I shouldn't find it as funny as I did (even though he was laughing just as much!).
Horses. Yes, he loves them & knows how to ride properly. That is a huge bonus.
Animals of all kinds.
Would rather meet up with friends for a drink than go full on clubbing.
And other stuff which means you have a lot in common.
He's tall. 5'11/6'0. Why do I always end up with tall men?!
