Cupid Comes Calling: Not that Guy!
I was supposed to go to see the new Bond flick with a friend, only he'd had a little too much fun-in-the-sun. This I found out when I checked in with him on what time we wanted to go for the show. His doorbell rang as I was about to leave. My friend answered and there stood…his co-worker, a tall, thin, dark-headed young man. In a flannel shirt. In May. After we were introduced, the co-worker said, "Sorry, I'm interrupting." I said, "No, I was just leaving."
I explained about the movie, and all of the sudden, my friend said, "You take her." I was mortified, and said, "Our friend has had too much fun today. Ignore him." The co-worker said, "I'll go." Before I knew it, all was arranged.
I kept thinking I was being nice. And I was. I paid for my own ticket, did most of the talking. Afterwards, the co-worker dropped me off in my apartment's parking lot. Ooookkaaayyy. A nice escort to my door would have been kind, but no.
Fast forward to six weeks later to my roommate's surprise birthday party by the pool…
That afternoon, the co-worker phoned and asked me out. I declined and invited him to the party. Pretty typical of me as I invited everyone to the party. In the middle of celebrating, I looked up and spied him (wearing a sweater. In July.) walking toward our group. Another friend noticed and asked about him. I said, "Oh that's Charlie's friend." I greeted him and made introductions.
Throughout the evening, three people told me they liked him, and I should date him. I was like really? But began to look at him through different eyes.
He kept coming back. And I kept saying yes. And finally on April Fool's Day, he proposed.
I made him ask me again on April 2—just to be sure.
Happy Valentine's Day!
