Right from joining the site John and I had a good connection; we emailed each other daily and followed each others diary entries. He had told me that he was going on a date the day before and I was keen to hear how it went.
Just as I expected there was an email from him saying. When you read this come through to me for a chat which was easier than emailing back and forward. I clicked on his profile to check that he was online, he was. I pressed the chat button and waited for him to connect.
Hello Gorgeous he typed. Then he began to tell me all about his previous date telling me that she was a lovely woman and they had both had a great time. I felt my heart sink a little but then thought to myself don’t be selfish. They had shared coffee and cake and then gone for a walk round a local market and bought a few things, he bought her a bunch of flowers then he walked her back to her car.
Are you going to meet again I enquired (thinking all the time, I don’t really want to hear the answer) No he replied she was a lovely lady but I did not feel the spark. Oh dear was my reply secretly smiling to myself.
What about your date he asked me. I went on to tell him that unfortunately I had not had the best of dates after meeting someone the previous evening who talked at me as opposed to having a conversation and that I too would not be seeing him again.
He commiserated with me and we both had a laugh and said back to the drawing board. We chatted a bit longer then signed out and I went to bed.
About 3am I was wide awake and decided to get up and make myself a hot drink, I went into the lounge and picked up my laptop thinking I would log on to the dating site and read a few diary entries.
I logged on invisible I was aware that there would be a lot of night workers online but I was not looking to chat to anyone, I was just looking to read the diaries
I had just started reading when John appeared at the bottom of my screen. I was amazed and I looked at his profile and he looked at mine. Then I sent him an email sayings are you okay? what are you doing online at this time.
He replied, this is so weird I woke up and thought of you and then for some reason felt I should come online! I know I live a long way from you, but you tick all my boxes and I can’t stop thinking about you!
