This afternoon I had a really nice afternoon at a very laid back lunch in the sunshine at some friends’ place. It was just four of us in total, a lovely lesbian couple from my circus school and another friend of theirs. One of the girls had implied in a text message that I might like the guy that was coming but it wasn’t a deliberate set-up or blind date of any kind, which was just as well.

He was a really nice guy and the conversation was really easy all afternoon, but even though we got on quite well and he was quite a sexy guy, our lives are very different and our ideas of a good time would probably not align.

It is very nice though when people you know introduce you to new and interesting people with or without the intention of setting you up. As I get older I think I’m getting more open minded about making sure I meet varying kinds of people. Hell, even if you don’t like them it usually makes for an interesting afternoon.
