Actually I do quite like someone

He only lives 20 metres away from me smile

Different situations are:

He has 3 kids, is divorced, is working full time. Seems to really love his ex wife, which is nice. I haven't asked him about that yet, I was curious about his sitting room when I visited and he was explaining me through the ornaments, photos and pictures and happened to mention a piece of furniture with his ex, in a sentimental way. I didn't like to ask any further but liked it that he cared about her.

I'm a total shitwit at present, no kids, I have frozen on life since I left exH, then got attacked, really need to stick my head up, get confident and get back to work.

Thing is I've only started talking to him this year, he's told me repeatedly he wants to help me. He did call me a honey a few months ago but it wasn't pervy, I was sitting on the pavement with cat, coffee and cigarette and the sun was shining, so it was more affectionate than anything else.

But it stopped my heart a little last week when I was at his house when he said he'd noticed me for years and wondered where I went.

This means he knew me before I got attacked when I was still functional, happy and quite pretty. I just froze slightly.

So I guess I'm trying to process this, I do quite like him, I'd like to call around again soon.

Enthusiasm smile

Thank you.

Ok I'll take a deep breath and call round next week.

He's older than me and very handsome, reminds me of robert de niro from deerhunter
