Shhh… no telling

I am a little cautious about cautiously mentioning in a tentatively cautious way that the ‘interesting man who I am enchanting’ mentioned here (that was his description, by the way, after noting that he had been referred to as ‘someone’) is turning out to be quite the thing.

It is a little dangerous to poke a stick at it here when it is such early days and may yet peter out, but it is hugely rare for me to find someone who really sparks my interest, so I am saying it out loud for the possibility, which is sweet and spiky, with a definite zingy flavour.

I have dubbed him ‘e’, he already gets his own category (spoilt brat!).

I am a little giddy with the potential of it, and that happens so very infrequently that I am kind of spun out by it. E is one of those rare creatures who manages this scorching hot balance between cocky confidence and sweet openness that smells to me like a hint of the kind of lovely vulnerability that makes my teeth ache. He’s also strikingly attractive in a ‘woah, fuck me!’ kind of way. He pretty much hits the mark with me no matter which way you slice it.

He is inconveniently located *waves fist wildly at the world*, so it will be slow going, which is fine with me. My experience is that these things sometimes wane after the initial flurry, so seeing if we can sustain each others interest beyond that is not a bad thing. If the connection is still promising, we will get together in the new year to see if there is something worth pursuing.

I’m still to decide how/if/whether to talk about it more here (and perhaps forbid him from reading it), but you may see snippets if it progresses, and you will certainly reap some benefit because he is firing my imagination, waking up those parts of my brain that are in equal parts reptilian, cold-eyed and hungry, and softly-sweet, longing for kissing.

As an aside, for all the talk of stellar introductory emails, his first note to me was this:

Ferns –

I enjoy reading your blog and would love to be friends here on FL.

Best,

e

His profile, though, was good enough for me to add it to the ‘great profiles’ thread when I read it.

From his initial note, I instigated a conversation, which I do with anyone who requests to be friends with me if we have not spoken before. Normally this leads to a short, pleasant exchange, but occasionally, it leads to an interesting dialogue that intrigues me, makes me laugh, that makes me go ‘well, hello there’.

Well, hello there, e.

    I will keep that in mind. “When in doubt, use cookies…” I think that motto is probably very widely applicable.

    Just… yay!

    I know that we can hold up to stick poking; that, in fact, we can dull any stick that comes our way, just as I can melt any spoon.

  7. Peroxide: “I'm (cautiously), stoked for you and not at all jealous.”

    *smile* Thank you for the cautious stokedness, and I would never think for one second that you were jealous!

    “Really. Not even a tiny bit.”

    No, really, I never even thought it.

    “I just have something in my eye, it's nothing I just need a minute”

    Let me look… oh wait… is that… no, no it's not, it's just an eyelash… *pat pat*

    Sounds like a challenge, to me!

  9. e: “I know that we can hold up to stick poking; that, in fact, we can dull any stick that comes our way, just as I can melt any spoon.”

    *smile* Sweetness and surety. I like both. Let the stick dulling commence! And I do look forward to the spoon meltiness.

    *laugh* There are so many possible reasons for this fainting… the mind boggles. Smelling salts!!
