If I told you I met a guy online... what would you say?
I would ask you who it was, if you’ve met him yet and if I’m allowed to tie him to the back of a dozen horses and drag him through the wilderness if he’s a creep.
His name is Kevin, I have met him in person and he doesn't seem creepish, but if he ever verged towards it you'd have my full permission.
Kevin isn’t a creep name. I don’t think. What’s he like?
Right? Kevin is more of a 'hey, can I help you with those groceries' kind of name. He seems sweet, likes to shop, is friendly. Maybe a tiny bit dim, but in an adorable way.
dim? In a himbo way?
EXACTLY. Oh, and he is decidedly attractive.
can’t be a himbo without being hot. So when did you meet him? Is he on the network?
A week or so ago. He is on the network, I think he's a dreamer. Seemed to take it largely in stride so, that's a plus.
well that’s a plus, I do wonder what others dream about that don’t put things on the network. So... was it a date?
There was flirting, and some comments, but I don't think so. I think I'd probably put in more effort if it was a date, to look better I mean. Even though I'm the cutest thing ever all the time anyway.
you are already very cute.
But I can always be cuter. Or hotter, I guess. Less cute, more hot.
I suppose the difference is important. I realise being a wingman only worked for TJ.
while we’re talking about people and things
You were an exceptionally good wingman for TJ though.
I was. I’m failing miserably for my friend though.
Are you seducing all the potential hook ups with your stunning good looks and amazing personality?
no, we just...keep talking.
... So the problem is that you're more interesting for them to talk to than the hooking up process. I don't think that's a failure on your part.
It’s definitely a failure, I’m meant to be helping him hook up and instead we just keep talking. And I think flirting which is weird for me that I don’t hate it.
Wow, you are flirting with a man who is not TJ, this is big. But like, it's not your fault he finds you more interesting than the scenery.
I never seriously flirted with TJ though.
Making it an even bigger deal! So, who is he?
His name’s Clint. He’s on the network too.
Ah, so does he know about the utter insanity that is your dream life and clearly just has to know more? Honestly, you're far more interesting than a quickie with anyone.
You’re sweet. I don’t really know what to do. Anyway. You realise I’ll need to meet your mystery guy, right?
Don't think too much on it, if he's that bothered that he's not hooking up while he's out with you, he'll figure it out. You can absolutely meet Kevin, possibly after I figure out if it's going to be a thing.
Okay, I’ll save the “I’ll break your knees” speech for now
Please do, he might take it literal.
who says I don’t mean it literally?
You cannot break peoples knees just because, Ciri.
if he hurts you that isn’t “just because”, Red.
How about you sic Scooby on him instead of causing grievous bodily harm?
Pretty sure if Scooby bit him, that’d also be pretty bad.
Just chasing, no biting.
Where’s the punishment in that? Lol. I’m kidding. Mostly. If he’s handsome and he’s nice to you then I look forward to meeting him :)
And one day I better meet Clint.
Mmhmm. At the very least, you'll need to tell me more about the man you flirt with.
Over drinks, maybe.
I can definitely get you liquored up for it.
Liquored up is the best way to deal with confusion.
