Well, I have dipped my toe in the dating world.
I met someone last night when I was out with Ben, Bella, Daisy & John. Yes, I went out with my husband. Yes, it was a bit weird but not too bad.
We were having a couple of drinks in the Weatherspoons in Aldershot before going to the cinema to see the Hobbit. I went out into the courtyard to have a cigarette and got chatting to this very nice man. We seemed to have a lot in common, so just before we both went inside out of the cold, I asked him if he wanted to go out some time. He surprised me by saying that he would like that. I was fumbling for my phone but it was tucked in a pocket in my bag and I couldn’t quite find it. So he took my number down. He tried to phone it but my phone had been on do not disturb mode and so it went straight through to voicemail twice (even though I had taken it off). So he said he would text me.
He hasn’t. Not yet. Do I just assume that it is the rules to not text until the next day (still nothing and its nearly 6pm) or even a couple of days later?
Maybe I gave him the wrong number? Should I have checked? Should I have insisted on taking his number too? I’m a little bit gutted he hasn’t texted because he seemed so nice and we got on very well.
Am I being premature in expecting him to have texted already or is he not going to judging by the fact that he hasn’t yet?
I really am lost in this whole dating thing. I haven’t got a clue what I’m doing!
