After a lot of sage advice in my comments and on twitter, I did indeed invite the vanilla man to come and have a drink with me.
Hi vanilla man: If you’re interested in a drink down at [where I live] sometime, let me know. I can offer stellar views: we can compare :).
-Sharyn (the tall blonde, pink sarong, [my dad’s] daughter
(if you don’t remember who I am, let’s both just pretend that you never got this, mmkay? :P
The ‘we can compare’ relates to him giving me a tour of his unfinished house when I was there: The top deck had a stunning view out over the water.
So I did the thing. And we will see.
It will be utterly anti-climactic if he just never replies. If that’s the case, I will feel like some melodramatic over-actor in a bad soap opera… *faints dramatically onto a chaise lounge*
Edited to add: Aaanndd, a reply about an hour and a half later…
Of course I remember who this is, the young lady whose father I was talking to last week asking him if the beautiful young lady who came for the house tour was really his daughter. I would love to catch up for a drink and compare the view. This weekend may be out, I’ve got worse plans on but have committed. There is a possibility on Sunday after lunch if you’re available if I can sort out doing the ‘have to’ stuff to doing the ‘want to’ stuff.
I would note that he is younger than me, so the ‘young lady’ thing is a complete delight.
So let’s see shall we?
I like him ????
I like him also :).
I hope you can quiet the part of your mind that wants to run this out into future scenarios, and just enjoy the moment.
I will have to work pretty hard not to do a non-con interrogation scene when we meet tbh :P.
Oh yay :)
Given how rarely I actually date, I’m calling it a ‘yay’ also. Even if he ends up being awful, I’m giving myself points for the valiant attempt :).
We already know he is not awful… he didn’t ditch his less fun commitment.
Gives you all the gold stars for valiant attempt!
True: Plus I know he’s been very kind to strangers, so yeah…
*puts all the gold stars on my forehead*
I’m sure we all have our fingers crossed for you!
I appreciate that (and the eyebrow wiggle :P).
Sooooo leather catsuit and whip ensemble then?
Of course. Subtlety is always a winner :P.
