I remember chatting to you.
I seem to recall you had quite the interest in boots or shoes and incessantly returned to it as a topic of conversation. When I redirected the conversation to more interesting topics, you bailed.
That was fine with me, no big deal. It was a casual chat, and of course nobody wants to spend time on exchanges that aren’t interesting to them. I harbour no bad feelings about it, but I’m not sure why you are reaching out now since I think we arrived at a natural conclusion to our interactions.
[for the record, he never replied :P]
And that, Dave, is why I’m single… (ref)
