Good morning my over 45 single Catholics -
I met a gentleman last Wednesday for the "coffee meet and greet". I met him via a secular site (it begins with a vowel ) In any event it went quite well, what I was apprehensive about prior to meeting (he is 64, yeah I know I am 51, and had lost his wife in a horrific car accident about 4 years ago) but once meeting it went well, conversation was smooth and engaging, he is a practicing Catholic, certainly showed interest, etc. The other thing I liked is that he was upfront (not in a snarky way) that he was dating, and that he had another date on Friday night, I said that is probably a good idea since he is getting back in the pool (he had a relationship about a year ago that ended)
It hasn't happened in quite a while, but as I was driving home I thought "hmmm, now this just might have possibilities"
You guessed it, my phone has been woefully quiet, not what I had hoped for. I leave for vacation on Thursday, my thought is sending him an e-mail tomorrow night "Leaving for vacation tomorrow, we had discussed going for a walk around local lake, if you are free maybe we could take that walk" - something along those lines. We did discuss said vacation, but don't believe I was very specific about when.
I am a BIG believer that if a man is interested he pursues, if he isn't, not so much. I certainly don't see any harm in sending it, while I think I gave plenty of "I find you interesting" comments, perhaps it didn't come across that way.
Thanks everyone, have a terrific day!
This is weird but I try honesty. I simply drop him an email saying I really enjoyed coffee and hope things are well with him. I mention I am going out of town and if he would like to have coffee again sometime feel free to give me a ring after (whatever day you will be back). Simple, direct, let's him know you liked him.
