A quick side note: I was out last night celebrating the end of exams with friends, when one admitted to me that she regularly checks my blog (I interrupted at this point with “stalker!”) to find the next chapter in my life. She continued to say she knows all that has been going on with me and the men who swoop in and out of my life through my various posts on here. I admit I was very flattered. So Miss Annie, here’s the next chapter for you; it even involves a completely new man! And of course, also for all those others waiting for the next drip of my juicy morphine or crash-cart romances?
On with the next chapter… on Monday night I went out to dinner with a group of friends and the most amazing man. Ok, maybe I should back track for a minute: I was at a friends apartment that my good friend Sarina was house sitting. I was checking out the photos displayed on the wall when one man caught my eye. “Who is that hotty?” I asked Sarina. She laughed and told me it was the friend whom she was house sitting for’s younger brother. Ah shite. Foot in mouth right there. So a few weeks later I get a message from Sarina to say: “he’s back in NZ, his brother is going to set you two up.” Uh oh. The nerves kick in. Sarina told me he was just my type, it would be perfect. She was right; except for one small detail… I will get to that.
So I’m off to dinner with three friends (that I don’t really know that well) and this amazing man. It wasn’t labeled a “set up”, but that’s what his brother was calling it when talking to me. It was dinner with friends. To be honest, I don’t think he bought it. Ha! Anyways, it couldn’t have gone any better. The two of us, at one end of the table, talked the entire time through dinner. The other three basically had a conversation between themselves and left us to it. After dinner we headed back to their apartment, everyone chatted and relaxed for a bit. Then slowly they all started heading off to their rooms, leaving him and I in the lounge. I was there until 12.30am, just talking and laughing – it was all so easy! The conversation got quite flirty and even a tad dirty at times. No no, nothing happened!
The gentleman that he was, he walked me to my car said goodnight, gave me a hug and a kiss on the cheek. I was sold. I had to keep telling myself; “my God Bron! you’ve only known this guy five hours!” Sounds too perfect right? Yeah it is.
He lives in Christchurch (other end of New Zealand to me)! He said he’d be up to visit and that I should head down there to see Christchurch. It’s just not the same! So unfair. He’s serious boyfriend material.
We will just have to watch this space I guess… He’s off to America in May next year; hence his name on my blog is “the traveller”. But then apparently he could move to Auckland. Yes, this is a whole year away. So I’ve decided I just need to keep him in the back of my mind, be his friend, maybe go visit. But try not to get too involved/attached – YEAH RIGHT!
His brother told me to be his friend and once he moves to Auckland I should pounce! And not in my usual cougar styles, because this one is a year older than me.
