There was something about him that attracted me to him; maybe it was his dark hair and deep brown eyes. He lived about 30 miles away and worked in logistics. I was gazing at his photograph when I received a message, once opened, I saw it was actually from him.
Hi Elaine, I noticed you looking at my profile so I thought I would bite the bullet and send you a email rather than going down the winking route.
This made me smile because that showed me that he had confidence and was quite direct which was just the sort of man I was looking for. We had a similar sense of humour and agreed to meet up that Saturday which was two days away.
When Saturday finally arrived I was a bundle of nerves. I had kept viewing his profile again and again and I had noticed he had been doing the same with mine. We were meeting in a shopping centre which was about half way between where we both lived.
I dressed with care, casual but smart and set off in good time so as not to be late. When I was driving into the car park my phone starting ringing I pulled into a space and answered the phone.
“ Hi Elaine said a lovely deep voice, I am here I know I am early are you here yet”?
“Yes” I replied “ I have just parked up, where are you”?
He told me he was stood outside the main door. I checked myself one more time in the mirror, hmm all okay. My tummy started doing somersaults. Will he like me, will I like him. Oh well I thought lets get over there and find out.
I climbed out of my car and looked across towards the main entrance and I saw him leaning against a pillar looking around to see if he could see me.
Now I have very bright red hair and I am quite difficult to miss so has I began threading my way through the cars he spotted me and waved. I waved back and hurried across to meet him.
“Hi Elaine, he said “I spotted you a mile off”
“Yeah I replied it’s the hair it’s a dead give a way”
“These are for you”, he said and produced a beautiful bunch of orange roses from behind his back
“Orange roses, my absolute favourite thank you so much”
“You’re very welcome” he replied.
Smiling at each other we made our way through the main doors and headed towards the coffee shop. This was definitely going to be a very good date.
