It’s a long story but the short version is that the man I’ve been in love with since I was 15 started flirting with me after Christmas. (Family friend so think Colonel Brandon in the film version of Sense and Sensibility with Alan Rickman who yes still gets me moist).
Great! Except he is only interested in sex, and having waited all my life for him to marry, have a family and then divorce I’m not about to waste the opportunity of trying to be a bit more than a quick shag.
And so begins the long game… more on that later. But what I had to post about tonight was how this man, this gorgeous, smart, funny man has just got ten times cuter. Now don’t get me wrong, when a few months back he said he didn’t kiss on the lips I knew why but I didn’t bother to say anything as hey, coincidences just happen all the time. However, tonight he mentioned this again in some light casual flirting and I just knew I had to be sure. Two articles later I find what I knew was true but had to see in print.
In ‘Pretty Woman’ the best film in the world, our heroine Vivian won’t kiss Edward on the lips because those are kisses reserved for love…
Is not that just such beautiful modern poetry?
I don’t think he had given up either. He says he will never marry again or have any more children but even if it’s not with me, I believe he is too good a catch to say single for long.
I always thought he was out of my reach, and maybe on one level he still is. But if you can love someone as ‘family’ for years, why not be hopeful that one day it could grow to something more?
