This is no biggie but I’ve been talking on msn to this guy. Like I said, I deleted him on msn but I didn’t block him so that if he wanted to message me, he still could. The first few times we talked after his confession, I was a bit cold but then I thought “Hey, he’s a guy within my desired age range and he’s funny. As long as I don’t fall for him there’s no harm talking to him right?”
(You better be nodding and saying “Right!” right about now.)
Anyways, I added him back on msn and it’s been fun. The guy has a dorky sense of humour and I like it. He makes fun of me and I make fun of him. He’s currently in the US so I have been asking him how his baby mama is, and whether he left Canada because he got deported. He calls me grandma because I’m so old apparently. It’s all in good fun sha. Another thing is that other than that lie I never got a bad vibe about him and even afterwards I didn’t (unlike this guy who was setting off all the alarm bells) so I don’t worry talking to him (let’s hope those aren’t famous last words).
When we’re talking on msn, he sends me links to songs on Youtube, a lot of D’banj (which makes me think of sting) and when he’s not doing that, he’s telling me how I’m the woman for him, while I do my part to dissuade him, and tell him he’s not rich enough for me. I ask him to tell me what certain Yoruba phrases mean and he does, and there was this one song I was dying for; could not find it anywhere, and didn’t know the name of the artist or title, only part of the chorus and he was kind enough to give me the name of the artist, search youtube for it (it wasn’t there) and then find it on Dudu Radio and send me the link.
It’s refreshing to talk to a guy who, even though he’s full of it, is actually in my age range (assuming he didn’t lie) and he’s just normal (well except for that lying by omission thing). He’s a nice antidote to the scores of old men on the dating sites who send me e-roses. I guess what we’ve been doing is sort of flirting but it’s definitely of the “this ain’t going anywhere” kind. And I’m actually fine about that.
Though sometimes it’s like I look forward to seeing him online or something. We cannot have that.
