Seems that the action just may be heating up around here.
The man who can't commit but who likes me is still around and we still get together now and then. In fact, we played pool again last night... and again, he trashed me! Admittedly, I suck at playing pool... and while he says he's no better, I must beg to differ... but we had a blast, so who cares! There was a few good shots, lots of laughter and some seriously funny bantering back and forth about sticks and balls...
There are two others in the wings now. Have not met either face to face yet. Have not actually spoken to either yet, but that will change tonight with one.
Guy A is 50, lives on his own and gets his 11 year old son every other weekend. He's an IT guy (did you know online dating sites are crawling with these guys?? go figure...) at a university and our emails have been very interesting. I'm looking forward to actually talking to this one. We seem to have a lot of basic personal thoughts and beliefs in common...
Guy B is 51, has two sons aged 10 and 14 (or close to that) who live with him and go to the ex Wednesdays and every other weekend. He's an account manager with a national firm. We've emailed and also chatted a bit online. Seems like a nice guy.
All three of them seem like nice guys. Well, I know Mr. Noncommittal is a nice guy... I've known him for two months now. The other two... well, time will tell. I know how long B has been on his own, but not A. I'm going to be asking him that this evening when we chat, because it's become painfully obvious to me that that is extremely important in how 'available' a guy really is.
So maybe there will be some development of something in the not too distant future? Hard to tell. I've done this so many times that I just can't get my hopes up. I have learned to just let things flow and see where they migrate.
