I was contacted by someone on OLD. We've been chatting - keeping it very impersonal and light.

He says that I'm "delightful".

Really? Delightful?

Anyone that knows me would know that "delightful" is probably the last word that you would associate with me.

While it's a very nice compliment, it just about put me on the floor with laughter.

Our perception about ourselves can be very wrong

I think you are delightful!

Go with it, don't try to change HIS perception of you.

Williesmom, you are delightful!!

That is a word you hear more often around the country and likely not much in rough, gruff Western Pa.

Perhaps you're HIS idea of delightful

thyme2go posted 4/11/2014 11:53 AM

I see nothing wrong with him saying that. Fits. Maybe he has a larger vocabulary than you are used to? Give a guy credit for being expressive.

Then again, I suspect I drive my SO a bit looney.

I think you're badass awesome, but then, I'm not a guy on OLD.

I recently met someone who I would describe as "delightful".

But I won't.


Not after this.

Maybe he's a closet Brit?

You know you. You think it is odd then trust your gut. He may be a good soul or someone not what you thought. Having a sense of humor is good too. If you are judging this early it might be a red flag. Sounds British or again beware if your antennae is saying otherwise. OLD while an avenue we never had in the past still has it's risks.
Have you tried local groups to get involved with, or asked friends and family if they know anyone that you might be compatible with?

British! That's it.

Makes so much more sense. Thanks, gang.

Aaaawwww.....I can see delightful.

We do sometimes perceive ourselves a bit differently than others see us. I feel that sometimes I can be a bitch on wheels. My guy sees that as having spirit. Whatever, works for me....

British! That's it.


Yet another life lesson from SI. All these years in the States and I had no idea that using "delightful" would blow my cover........

I use adjectives like "delightful" all of the time. I really had no idea it was crazy or unbecoming. As a guy, it seems we are darned if we do and darned if we don't. But a red flag? <smh>
