A year in moments #12 – first date with The Poet

Continued from Meeting The Poet... It was 3 months exactly since we first met, this time Friday 13th December.

A year in people #78(3) – A

Continued from Part Two “What would you say to us going out? Like properly? I want to be with you.” It was a quandry. I didn’t really want to go out with anyone.

A year in people #59 – the definitely not a date guy

A few years ago after I got divorced there was a man (DC) who used to ask me out a lot. I kept saying no. I gave him credit for his persistence, but my answer was always no (just didn't fancy him and I wasn't interested in dating). One night, we'd all been out somewhere … Continue reading A year in people #59 – the definitely not a date guy
