I received an email from a guy who was rather different from the type of guy who I am usually attracted to but because I think it is only polite to reply I sent him a brief email back and after reading the diary entries, logged offline and went to bed.
The day after when I logged on again, I noticed there was another email from him again and once again I was drawn to his profile.
Aged 61 5ft 10 divorced, worked in the medical profession. The only other words simply said : Looking for my soul mate.
I studied his photograph thinking he is not the type of man I would go for at all but something was drawing me to him which I could not explain.
He had sent me a lovely email telling me a bit more about himself and asking me questions about my life and interests. We both were quite spiritual and had the same interests and likes and dislikes. But I just could not get past the fact that I did not instantly think wow he looks good.
Now not everyone takes a good photograph this much I do know. But there was still something that was pulling me towards him.
I sent him a friendly email back and that’s how we communicated for the next week ping pong emails. After the first week he asked me for my phone number which I gave freely because I really liked his personality he was great fun and made me laugh out loud.
He text me the next day asking if I was having a good day and said would it be okay for him to ring later that night. I text back and said yes it would be okay for him to give me a call later.
I looked at his profile again and noted that he had been looking at mine. I was feeling nervous but yet excited about taking to him on the phone,
At 8.30pm my mobile rang and I immediately saw on the screen it was him. I took a deep breath and pick up the phone and said “Hello”
“Hi Elaine” came back a really deep voice hmm nice voice I thought, the sort I could meditate to quite easily.
We chatted for about half an hour about this and that and then he asked me if I would like to meet for a coffee the following weekend and I agreed but strictly as friends only. He laughed at this and said fine no problem, so we arranged to meet in a local garden centre the following Saturday.
Saturday arrived, I did not go overboard I just pulled on a pair of jeans and a white blouse and brushed my hair and put on a bit of lipstick, then set off to meet my new found friend.
I arrived at the garden center early so I was looking at the water features when I heard a deep voice say.
” Hi Elaine ” I turned round slowly to meet my new found friend:
