- Met J. at The Yard for a couple of drinks. Jaw-dropping handsome. Excellent, lively, stimulating conversation, lots of eye contact and smiling.
- Went for a quick, cheap dinner at the Stockpot. More animated discussion, that we both cranked up a notch with tactful, subdued flirting.
- After-dinner coffee at Bar Italia, where I showed off by ordering in Italian.
- Tube ride to his place for a nightcap. Sat on the couch as he shyly put his arm around my shoulders, like a coy teenager at an important movie date.
- Tender, passionate, sweet, intense, raunchy sex.
- Cuddle and sleep.
- More tender, passionate, sweet, intense, raunchy sex.
- Breakfast (him) and cigarette in the garden (me).
- Kissing and apologizing for my cigarette breath – he said he does not mind it at all.
- One last kiss in his car as he dropped me off at the tube station, just like long-term partners on their way to work.
So where’s the catch?
(Oh, and he is 31, by the way)
