There is a guy that I’ve been chatting to on Scruff that is very keen to catch up. I’ve been fighting a cold and he keeps getting confused as to when I’m free and when I’m not so it hasn’t happened yet but he’s very persistent. To be honest, he’s almost too keen. Alarm bells are ringing but I’m ignoring them because so far listening to things like that hasn’t helped me find Mr Right, so I’m giving him a chance.

He keeps saying things like “I want to get to know you” or “I like you”. Um, we haven’t chatted that much and we’ve never met. Maybe it’s my track record at attracting nutbags that is clouding my judgement and he really is just a nice guy who, as he says, doesn’t like to chit chat forever online and never meet. Or maybe he is nuts. The other alternative is that he’s as desperate to find romance as I pretend not to be. We’ll see. We are finally having coffee this weekend.

Update: So not only is this guy very keen, he seems to be a bit flakey. I told him I couldn’t do Monday night then got a message “can you do Monday?” No. I had told him earlier I couldn’t do Friday. “Can you do Friday?” Um… No. So then this morning after saying I had a busy day but could do a coffee this morning “I have to go to the gym, can we do it later?” Guess what sunshine? That would be a no.
