Should I go on a date with Graeme ?

I have an Internet dating dilemma. Should I meet up with Graeme ( note how he spells his name ) tomorrow night?
Tried to meet up last week but m25 traffic chaos put pay to that so instead I spoke on the phone to him for 40 mins. He suggested same time same place in exactly a week. So fast forward a week and I've not heard from him. I text to say I presume he no longer wants to meet due to radio silence. He says he does !
Do I try again? He's relatively good looking with a lovely voice.
His last girlfriend had 70 pairs of shoes and was into designer clothes. I'm a gardener and have a selection of wellies !
What to do ?

Hunter wellies?

If you were keen to meet up with him last week then why not?

The poor man can't help the name he was saddled with!

Why's his name important?

Wishiwasmoiradingle2017 Mon 13-Mar-17 19:55:09

Only if you are prepared to update us. . . Can we have some details - age /height /does he own wellies?

What's the problem? His name, the fact he hasn't contacted you for a week or your footwear?

Why is he telling you about his last girlfriend?

I don't think being called Graeme is a red flag, in isolation.

Go for it

Choclover27 Mon 13-Mar-17 20:03:39

Wellies are from wilkos !!!! Not a hunter in sight 😂
Name spelling I can cope with.
But why is he still wanting to go on a date with me if there has been no contact in between? Ego boost ? Will he be disappointed by wellie woman ?
Think he's 6 ft. Bit of a beard thing going on. Can't look at his profile again as he will know 😱

Wishiwasmoiradingle2017 Mon 13-Mar-17 20:06:16

Has he got an interesting job? Scope for chat?

I'd be more worried about him whingeing a out his ex ALREADY, to be honest.

I used to fancy a lad called Graeme when I was at school... Not sure I could marry one though. I always think that a Graeme is a middle manager for the council with a wife called Maureen and a Volvo.

Also, depends on how old you both are - after a certain age, the whole. 'will he call/won't he call' game-playing crap gets a bit dull and indicative of an immature personality.

Wishiwasmoiradingle2017 Mon 13-Mar-17 20:12:28

If he was a celebrity who would he be??

Heratnumber7 Mon 13-Mar-17 20:13:08

Perhaps he's had a busy week.

Nothing ventured, nothing gained. I'd give poor Gray the benefit of the doubt.

GoodDayToYou Mon 13-Mar-17 20:14:34

I just asked my dp and we both say, give it a go. Tbh, neither of us is impressed with the lack of contact but you won't know if you don't go. Personally. I'd plan a shortish date, maybe a coffee and I def wouldn't chase him any more - leave that to him. Good luck with it!

Graeme Souness grin

I once met a guy in a bar who introduced himself as Mark. He was pretty damn attractive - until he added 'That's Mark with a "C"'. Put me right off - still not quite sure why!

flumpybear Mon 13-Mar-17 20:39:11

Go!! He's a bloke, they don't think the same way as women - take a chance, it may work, it may not. It if you don't go you may never know!!
Go!!! Dot it!!! Perhaps a date with someone less high maintenance is what he wants!!

TheNaze73 Mon 13-Mar-17 20:42:49

Why are the questioning it? He said same time next week & he's true to his word. Anyone who text me asking if we were still ok, despite nothing changing, I'd think was a bit odd

theansweris42 Mon 13-Mar-17 20:47:50

Well I also would've text to (re)confirm.
But yeah I reckon he said meet I'm a week so...that's what he thought was happening.
Now I know TWO v nice and cool Graemes...

theansweris42 Mon 13-Mar-17 20:48:29

So yes, you should smile

Choclover27 Mon 13-Mar-17 21:06:18

Ok. Consensus of opinion is that I will go. Minus the wellies.

Sixoclocknews Mon 13-Mar-17 21:14:44

Yes go. Why not?
