Dear Very Cute Boy

Dear Very Cute Boy Who I Was Talking To The Other Night,

By my guestimates you are probably too young for me.  I’d say by at least 5 years.  Maybe more?

But I smiled at you and you saw my smile and immediately came over and introduced yourself (Even though I was talking to another guy at the time.  I loved the way you just pulled me aside.).  It was a strong move and I was impressed.

The club was insanely loud but you made a damn fine effort at making conversation.   Although, to be honest, I couldn’t hear a word you said. Not a word.  I couldn’t even hear your name.  I guess I really am getting old.

I have no idea if you could hear me.  You are at least a foot taller than me and so you had to bend over to let me shout in your ear.   All of that bending and shouting was pretty ridiculous, come to think of it.

And it was already pretty late by the time we met.  The party had been going on for 4 hours at that point.  I’d already had plenty to drink.  Plenty.  I don’t know about you.  Maybe the reason I couldn’t understand a thing you said was because you were slurring?  It’s possible.

Anyway, I was intrigued enough (or drunk enough, does it really matter which?) to give you my card.    That was 4 days ago.

I’m not saying I would’ve gone out with you.  I probably wouldn’t have.  What with the whole you being too young thing.  But if you got in touch with me the next day and said the right things, I could’ve been convinced.  Definitely.

    meh. he is probably calling girls closer to his own age who aren’t so easily impressed.

    That was my intention. Sometimes it’s just fun to write fluff (well, fluffier fluff than I usually write).
    Welcome to the blog. I doubt he even kept the card, honey or remembered he had it. Nor would I have actually gone out with him. I was JOKING.

    Ha! I knew you would cave into (or at least think about caving into) younger men sooner or later.

    You will remember him just as the “very cut boy”, who knows… maybe he will appear again somewhere, and by then he might look more mature and older.

  6. PARTCURIOUS says:

    good luck and hope you will meet him again one day.

    Oh I THINK about all kinds of things. :-)

    Welcome to the blog. Funny thing is, I wouldn’t be able to pick him out of line up. Funny how quickly a cute guy fades from memory.
