Making my way home. Are you home yet?

Just that really.
How should I understand this question?

We are exchanging messages via OLD website. I haven't given my number yet and he hasn't asked to meet up.
This question is from today... Am I right to be cautious or should I accept it as normal. Am I overreacting?

Does he have your address?

It sounds as though he's texting his wife, tbh.

BoredOfWaiting Wed 02-Nov-16 20:49:53

It's a completely benign question- unless I'm missing something? What are you worried about?

Inexperiencedchick Wed 02-Nov-16 20:50:56

No, he doesn't.
I haven't shared any personal info.
Just showed him my pic yesterday, as I don't keep my pic on my profile...

Am I right to be worried?

Inexperiencedchick Wed 02-Nov-16 20:52:33

The second part of the message pushed me back a bit.
And I'm asking just to know that it's a normal question.

It's just general chat isn't it? confused

AnyFucker Wed 02-Nov-16 20:56:20

That sounds like a message meant for someone else

Inexperiencedchick Wed 02-Nov-16 20:56:26

I'm fine if it's just a general chat.

Inexperiencedchick Wed 02-Nov-16 20:57:58

For me it came across like I'm already his wife...

Muddlewitch Wed 02-Nov-16 20:58:01

I think just general chat too, maybe trying to start a conversation?

ocelot7 Wed 02-Nov-16 20:58:25

Perhaps he means if/when you are both home it will be possible to continue to chat? So nothing sinister!

peri89 Wed 02-Nov-16 20:59:03

Just sounds like chit chat, a way to start a conversation. I really don't see anything sinister in it.

Inexperiencedchick Wed 02-Nov-16 21:00:37

I just hope he is nice and not rude...

We started chatting lightly, and I'm okay with one text per day for now...

Don't want to rush into anything...

NarcsBegone Wed 02-Nov-16 21:03:06

It's a perfectly normal question thing to talk about when getting to know someone I think. 'I'm on my way home at the moment, have you got home yet?' As in is your working day over (if it's relevant) and could possibly be followed up with 'what are you up to tonight? I'm meeting my mate for a beer blah blah blah'

Inexperiencedchick Wed 02-Nov-16 21:04:44

I guess I panicked then...

madgingermunchkin Wed 02-Nov-16 21:05:50

Take a deep breath, and stop looking for things that aren't there.

He's on his way home after a (presumably!) long and tiring day, and is searching for a way to make contact and start a conversation.

DearMrDilkington Wed 02-Nov-16 21:06:48

I think its General chit chat.

It's like "I'm making dinner now, have you had dinner yet?".

FishyWishies Wed 02-Nov-16 21:07:11

Sounds fine to me, what were you imagining?

AnyFucker Wed 02-Nov-16 21:07:18

Are you sure you are ready for this dating lark ?

PoldarksBreeches Wed 02-Nov-16 21:08:06

One text per day? And his was to ask if you're home yet? Slow down guys all that excitement isn't good for you!

DearMrDilkington Wed 02-Nov-16 21:08:47

poldarks gringrin

clumsyduck Wed 02-Nov-16 21:09:06

Also think general chit chat

Those saying meant for someone else /wife possibly if via text but if via the app then I'd doubt he's accidently message you on their a message meant for say his wife via a text iyswim

TealGiraffe Wed 02-Nov-16 21:09:14

I would take it as 'are you free to chat' or general chit chat. I don't think it's anything sinistet

Inexperiencedchick Wed 02-Nov-16 21:11:51

I got used to be single so much that I get stressed out when people ask some personal questions...

AF I thought I would give it a go... But OLD is really soul destroying...

And I did get advice here to seek old style way of meeting men. But it's difficult as I'm reserved and don't go out much...
