I fancy the plumber. HELP!

Recently single 26 year old Mumma here.
This particular plumber has come over twice the past 2/3 months to help with various things around my rented place.

He is is absolutely stunning. In his 30's. Three children. Not with the mother, but no idea of any girlfriend. Lovely to my very chatty, curious 3yo (obviously having seen her when fixing up the place).

I am sure there is a little chemistry but I'm not sure if I'm projecting. Something in the way he mentioned me being a full-time Mum, the smile on his face as he left and mentioning he's not with the mother.

He's said he'd keep me updated with various bits that need doing. Everyone says to see if he followed through with this but I can't eat or sleep properly. I feel like a 16 year old girl again!
I don't wanna step on no ones toes, but I also don't want to waste an opportunity.

Advice?!

If you can risk him not coming back round and having to find another plumber, I’d ask if he fancies a drink sometime. Maybe just as he’s leaving so you both have an easy escape if he says no! Either that or tell him you’ve extra plumbing for him to tinker with and give him a wink 😉

Hopefully he'll keep you updated! Do you have his mobile number? Drop him a text to ask when he's coming round next, that keeps the ball in his court if wants to carry on messaging you and if you can chat a bit further?

How exciting! I think I would text him too...You must have his number! Just keep the text breezy! wink

You go, girl! Text him! On the basis that I have regretted the things I haven’t done in my life, way more than the things I have done (and I have done plenty of stupid shit, don’t get me wrong......)

What have you got to lose? Good luck!

Unfortunately, he is the only plumber my estate agents use since the last ones left. He's the only one I've had since.

I've had loads of issues with the boiler, which is more than happy to pack in completely if said plumber is gonna come and sort it for me!

Turn the boiler off and make out its not working! Then again if it happens every week someones going to notice🤣

If it happens, why not! Slightly off the subject my husband was first aware of his (then) wife's first affair when his young son said, "Daddy, why does Mummy keep kissing the painter?"!!

My best mate's husband is a (dishy) plumber and before they were together he was propositioned by a few customers! Perk of the job for a single plumber it appears.

Theres deffo something about work clothes and a good pair of forearms...

MissSmiley Tue 19-Jan-21 23:11:37

@PawPatrol24 what did you text?

Livandme Tue 19-Jan-21 23:13:38

My friend is a plumber and has had certain clients turn off / break items to get him to return..
He knew every time and took advantage of the situation a couple of times.
In fact when my boiler broke recently he suggested I had done it myself to get him round!

Thank you! Fingers crossed he does feel the same and I wasn't just projecting.

Last time I felt like this about someone, I was 16! Bit scary lol

Go girl! I'm sure he'll be asleep, plumbers like an early start, hopefully you'll have a reply by breakfast time

If this works out I think your three-year-old deserves some sweets for helping you get it off the ground grin

Hmm how can you with lockdown? I think might have been better to say boiler broken as that's permitted ☺️

Aquamarine1029 Tue 19-Jan-21 23:25:45

Break your toilet and then lock him in your bedroom when he shows up to fix it. Or is that a step too far?

Ooh this is exciting! Hope you get a good message back in the morning
