A new neighbour has moved into our block of flats, and we have spoken a few times, helped with a few things etc

he is old enough to be my Dad though, and he has white hair, although if he was younger he would have been attractive.

He has just asked if I would like to go out for a meal. Is he being friendly? Or does he want a date? Is he assuming that I'm a single parent and must be desperate??

I have no idea. My kids said they would like to go, I made it clear I would pay for us

but now I am panicking incase he wants a relationship. What if I have given the wrong impression by saying yes? I haven't flirted or anything.

oh sugar, what if he was being a friendly neighbour? as he is new to the area?

my radars haven't been used for such a long time, i haven't got a clue anymore

lol at he has white hair

does it feel like it might be a date to you

if it does it probably is

i think if it was purely a thank you then it might just be a bottle of wine

but like you say he might just be being friendly

hard to say

wehat exactly did he say

He said, "would you like to come out for a meal sometime?" when he was returning something.

He wasn't bothered when I said I would bring kids, as he said they're nice kids.
Which isn't a very datey thing is it?

But now I'm thinking, what if he's a paedo?!!
i am a massive worrier and very protective of my kids...

He's definitely asking you out IMO smile Sounds like a nice guy if he's happy to have your kids come along too.

we're all protective of our kids - go for the meal, keep your cool & guard.

sounds to me like a friendly neighbour thing at the mo.

my mate had white hair at age 14, maybe he aint as old as you think?

misi you are just a troll, maybe a white haired one ??

AW sounds like he is asking you for a date, if you are not looking for anything like that then tell him you would love to have him as a friend and do things occasionally with him, the grey hair can be deceiving though as my cousin is in his 30's and half grey.

he was asking you out on a date but will have taken you suggesting bringing your kids as a 'we are only friends'.. I think you are currently in aposition to turn it into whatever you would liek it to be..

..if you want a date.. get a babysitter

..if you want a friend.. take the kids and make it lunch

Sounds like it will be nice and laid back either way.

Good luck!

pathetic remarks are another sign of ignorance.
