On xmas eve last year I was walking through the lobby of the swankiest hotel in town to get to the insanely fabulous lounge for traditional cocktails to kick off the holidays.

Passed by a guy and his elderly mom touring the Christmas tree display, which gets more spectacular every year.

Six foot blondie, really quite easy on the eyes, and VERY familiar. I did a double take and nearly said hi, thought I knew him from work, but then I stopped because I realized I didn't know him from anywhere IRL.

Had just seen him a lot on OLD and never thought to contact him because he was just too good looking... so he double takes me back and we move along in the throng, going in opposite directions.

It took me a good fifteen minutes to twig to where I'd seen his face before.

So tonight there's his profile on there, still there, newer pics, him with two absolutely gorgeous grown kids, now he's a grand dad, and he mentions his mom in his profile which he hadn't before.

So I message him and say hey I think I saw you at (swankhotel) on xmas eve, if that was you, kudos for taking good care of your mom blah blah have a nice day bye.

And so he gets back to me and says I look like someone he could feel comfortable with, I gather he's kind of introverted and easygoing, not really a dater....

tee hee

So I guess we'll see.

Two weeks from 6th Antiversary and the road takes an interesting turn.

(no squee-ing please, I'll let you know if and when that will be appropriate.)

We now return to our regularly scheduled programming.

He has a boat.

Oh my,
FFs getting her toe in the dating pool.
She may even get a ride in a boat.

Squee suppression in check!

My GFs and I will be out and they'll point out all the guys they know from OLD. Some have even dated the same guys they met on OLD. You'd think a city of 4.5m wouldn't have such a small dating pool.

Love this - looking forward to an update :-)

I feel your tee hee! Gives me hope.

Crossing fingers, thinking happy thoughts

Riding in a boat...I hope that's not a seafaring version of riding the bus...

I'll be going about my business but checking back from time to time to see what's happening

Very. Interesting.

I've seen guys out occasionally that are from OLD, most I think are less attractive than their photos.

Had an interesting dream where I was at his house with his kids hanging out and he was adding some items to the handlebars of my bike, including a picture of himself in a frame.

I'm busy till next week. Ball is in his court. You guys are hilarious.

I'm going to give you a "sq" for now. You'll get the "ee" if something pans out here.

StoryHour posted 5/29/2014 10:25 AM

I am in the same place! Who knows what will come of it, but I find out next week.

Fingers crossed and good luck to you!

On 2 different OLD sites I was matched with the same guy. He turned out to be a self important jerk. Made me wonder what about me they thought matched him! That's when I quit OLD.

I know two people that have met their now spouses via OLD. I'm hoping your experience goes more to that side of the equations.

Nothing says sexy like a hot guy in a kilt! PICTURES please!

Love these chance meetings...look forward to hearing more!

Williesmom posted 5/29/2014 12:33 PM

So funny.

"Cause if you get off the bus eventually then I think I'll hold the title of "longest bus rider."

Good luck!

FaithFool posted 5/29/2014 14:44 PM

This isn't kilt guy. Different one.

So the site attaches a tag line to messages with photos attached that tells users to report the sender if there are nekkid pics are attached.

His response was that he'd spent 45 minutes diligently searching for one of me to no avail.

Good luck!

Well on the boat would probably be a change for the better...

I saw this coming. You have slowly moving closer and closer to the exit.
Good for you
