There Is A Mystery Man………..I Think

Its been a while since I’ve entered into a relationship since my last disastrous one with Lestat.  That’s been going on 5 years already.  Wow, I didn’t even realize that it’s been that long.  In any case, there has been this person of interest who I met quite a while back and made a very bad impression on me.  I don’t really remember why…..wait, no I remember now.  It was the fact that I don’t really like people who are too into themselves to even bother to ask about someone else, to me that seems to be that they are a complete narcissist.

Enter The Personality Changeling

Two weeks ago this person made contact with me after months of silence and I was surprised to say the least.  But he isn’t the person I met back when, and this 360 turn of personality change is also a HUGE surprise.  I mean HUGE, because I have no idea what to make of this sudden interest in keeping my company.   First he showed up at my house, after he had sent me a text that he was at Starbucks and would I like a coffee?  I jokingly said, “Sure and I would like a Venti Breve Latte, Flavor, No sugar.”  He responded with okay and 20 minutes later he showed up at my house with coffee and a chocolate croissant.   Which also surprised me because I don’t remember if I had mentioned it in a past conversation.  He rang my doorbell and of course I really didn’t think he’d show up at my house at 7:26am to bring me coffee and breakfast.  I invited him in, as he had his coffee in hand and he was a complete gentleman.   As I work from home I was logged on to the training I was supposed to be listening to which was almost 4 hours long.  And he kept me company for the entire time until he said he had to leave because he had a meeting on the west side of town.  I walked him to the door, thanked him for the coffee and croissant and he hugged me before walking out my front door.

I said out loud, well that was weird and went back to “work.”  That evening as I was out in my back yard pulling fucking weeds because it’s been raining off and on for almost a month making these asshole weeds grow in every nook and cranny of my yard, and that’s when I got a text from him.  He asked if I’d like to go swimming with at the indoor pool that’s two blocks away from my house.  I was caught off guard as to why he’d ask me to go swimming.  But then I remembered that mentioned to me that he goes swimming for exercise every morning at 6am.  I thought he was just joking with me I didn’t respond.  Around 9 that night he called me to ask me if I’d like to go with him, and I, caught in the moment panicked and said……….yes.

So fast forward to the next day at 5:15am when I received a call from him telling me he’d be at my house at ten till 6 to pick me up to go hit the pool.  So half asleep I’m trying to find my bathing suit (which wasn’t really that hard since I’m at my son’s swimming every weekend) and putting together my swim bag.  After washing up, changing and slipping on my flip-flops, my doorbell rang.  I had put my hair up in a messy bun (since I had literally woken up like 10 mins before) and answered the door.  He was standing there, huge smile on his face and said “are your ready?”  I might have grumbled a half hearted yes and turned to lock my front door.  He ran past me to open the door to his truck which caught me by surprise (again) and I finally woke up.  We arrived at the pool right as they opened and my forgetting that they charge to get in panicked. But quickly realized that he’d taken his wallet out and paid for my entry.

I walked into the locker room to change and being kind of self conscious about this dude seeing me in a bathing suit wrapped myself in my towel. I walked out to the pool area an he smiled at me and pointed to the bench where his things were and then jumped into the pool.  I put down my stuff and left the towel on the bench and jumped in as well yelling “Holy fuck this water is cold!” so loud the lifeguard gave me the “stare.”  Which meant I wasn’t to cause a scene again.   He laughed and he asked if I was ready to swim to which I replied that I only intended to “float.”  He laughed again and began his regimen of lap swimming and I was honestly impressed.  This guy swims like a damned Olympian!  I floated at the end of the pool watching him swim back and forth in no time flat.  I tried swimming to and fro and realize that my forte was running as I felt clumsy and amateurish next to him and the other three people swimming for fitness as I just doggy paddled my way back and forth.

We swam…..okay he swam I floated for about 45 minutes because he knew I had to clock into work at 8am.  We left the pool and he took me for coffee and bought me a chocolate croissant too.  We headed back to my house so he could drop me off and he decided to stay.  Believe it or not, I actually enjoyed myself and even after I had logged on for work he stayed and we watched half the movie the Godfather.  He then said he had to go and he’d pick me up again the next day to go swim.   This has been going on for a week and a half and I’m starting to look forward to getting up to go swimming with him.  Then this morning he said to me that the local film festival is starting this weekend and that he’d like to take me to see Lawrence of Arabia (because apparently he also remembered that I love classic films, as does he.)

He said he chose the film because he remembered that I said I had never seen that particularly long film and asked if I’d want to go with him.  So, in short a guy that I thought snobbish and narcissistic and hadn’t heard from in months suddenly showed up into my life a week and a half ago.  And since then we’ve swam, had coffee and breakfast and watched old films on television.  All the while having meaningful and interesting conversation.   And I’m AT A FUCKING LOSS HERE PEOPLE!!!  It seemed that when we first met we didn’t like each other and that was our conversation was about this morning as we drove for coffee.   Then he referenced the fact that we were like the characters in When Harry Met Sally.   And I’m not going to lie, that impressed the fucking hell out of me!

So now, apparently I have a date for next weekend to go to the film festival to watch a movie I’ve never seen with a guy I thought I didn’t like.

My life has been a lot like the movie Bridget Jones Diary (the Hispanic version) constant comedic struggles and life lessons learned by way of personal experience. I've survived divorce and online dating debacles, so tag along for the ride and lets laugh together.

  1. (This isn’t the realtor is it?) I would be wary of the sudden onslaught of attention from him after so long. I have a story that I won’t go into regarding a guy thinking I would jump into bed with him after ignoring me physically on dates for weeks. The saying that Leopards don’t change their spots has some basis in fact, so have fun while it’s still fun, But if things start getting weird, you might mention his name to a friend/relative so that there’s a history of suspicion. And no, I don’t know when I became such a cynic.

    1. You kill me Barb, 😝. I mean about the cynic part because I’m right there with you. I’m not jumping into anything but, the original realtor I was dealing with had something to do with his about face. She’s a close friend of his and I think he asked her about me and she told him that I don’t play games and am too old to be dealing with his bullshit.


  2. Is this the realtor? Because from what you said of him, he didn’t sound trustworthy. If not, while I’d wonder why the man did an about face… life can be strange and maybe you just got started on the wrong foot. Trust your instincts, which I think are pretty well tuned. If nothing else there’s free coffee and swimming.

    1. As I mentioned to Barb, his change in attitude came from a long talk with the original realtor I was dealing. She’s a really close friend of his and she set him straight after I talked to her about our initial date gone wrong. She said he’d asked her about me and why I was so unresponsive. I’m like, hello asshole, really? And for now it’s exactly what you said, swimming and coffee. He’s going to have to come up with something really spectacular to change my mind.

    1. I agree, people can and in some cases do change. Although I’m taking this as cautiously as possible. Mainly because of what happened with Lestat, I guess I’m guarding myself because I don’t know him well other than he sold me my house.
