A date, an email, and one happy guy

I had a date last night, a lawyer of 40 who lives in north London and works as a Company Secretary for a merchant bank in the West End. She’s Indian (I will admit quite openly that I have a bit of a “thing” about Indian girls), really lovely company, and has a face that I had an urge to kiss all night.

We met in a newly refurbished gastro-pub in Crouch End (one of my favourite areas, kind of bohemian and a bit arty, but not too pretentious) that was recommended to me by one of Zooz’s daughters. I hadn’t been there before, but it was perfect… a really nice ambience, not too bright with lots of soft, moody lighting and full of big, soft leather sofas to sit on. The restaurant was equally good, with a great menu and excellent service.

We arrived at 8.30 and didn’t leave until 1am, hardly realising that all the chairs around us had been stacked on the tables. The conversation was really easy, and it felt like we were just skimming the surface and that it was just going to get better the longer we spent together. After we left I walked her back to her car and asked her if I should call her after the weekend. And then we just kissed and she said “You’d better!” Her lips were full and soft, and I just thought “Mmmmmm”…

I got back home at about 1.30 and saw I had a few emails waiting. Ironically, one of them was from BR, who I’d emailed a day or two ago, just to make sure she was okay with what had happened between us. I would have hated for there to have been any misunderstanding, and I just wanted her to know that I hadn’t taken what happened for granted in any way. Her mail, though, was a surprise, and I went to bed feeling kind of happy with life whilst wondering quite how to respond…

Hi WDKY

Just got in and it was a lovely surprise hearing from you.

I soooo enjoyed last week and thought you were an interesting and very sensuous guy. I feel we have lots in common even though you're not into hip hop!

I certainly felt I wanted to see more of you and you never know where things may lead. Whether we could be boy/girl friend is in the lap of the gods. I never look ahead with romantic encounters but just experience what the moment has to offer.

You are a wondrous lover and a very sensitive man (please note… Ed). I believe we could have lots of fun. Your sense of humour is wicked and I adore your little pussy cat!!

Why not come over to chez BR one evening and just live in the moment -

that's the only reality you know.............

In fact, wish I was with you right now xx


You’ll have to excuse the fact that – other than for our names – I posted that completely unedited, but a little self-promotion is allowed in the run-up to Christmas, isn’t it? Anyway, I’m off for a run now, then I have to sort out Mum’s new TV for her (she’s done something to the colour balance and doesn’t know how to adjust it again) and get our Christmas tree… the kids are going to help decorate it this evening. Busy day, but I feel content with the world, and my place in it.

incorrigible

yoursecret said...

Heh! That living in the moment stuff is what gets a guy waking up a few years from now wondering "how in the hell did I end up here?"
The new date sounds nice. "You'd better" call her...lol.

positronic said...

I would wish you a happy Xmas but it looks as if you don't need it. About Indian women. Mmmmmm. Have you noticed how impossibly beautiful their hair usually is?

FJL said...

This is amazing. I don't know what I'd do, if there wasn't someone to tell me what a lover's hair, a leather sofa, and a restaurant looked like! Or what a kiss was? None of the rest of experience this atall.
Come on Sweetie, who are you really fooling?
Just my opinion. I still like ya.

FJL said...

Looking at that post it seems as if it might have been said harshly, it wasn't atall. It's just that 'boasting about your conquests' - it's something a good man grows out of quickly, in my book. Sorry, it's just that I speak my mind. I haven't changed my mind about how good a friend you've been to me xx

WDKY said...

EJ - yes, it was a good day again. But no doubt it'll all come crashing down around my ears again soon :-)

Zooz... not me. Never. Absolutely not.

Yoursecret, she does sound nice. She is nice!

Pos, I love that hair too. On my thighs, preferably.

FJL, this blog is the story of my life, ranging from personal to intensely personal. It's been entirely consistent from the start, and if you don't understand where I'm going with it you can always pass it by. I'd hate to think you might misinterpret it altogether.

FJL said...

WDKY if you don't mind I will for the moment. I'm not ctisising you atall. But I just personally don't go along with being indiscreet about encounters with women, for me, women deserve to have their privacy respected. I want to stress I'm not critisisng you, do your thing as you wish.

WDKY said...

That's fine.

"BR" is, of course, completely anonymous, so I really wouldn't spend too much time worrying about it.

FJL said...

It's pretty obvious who it is and personally I am worried about upset and heartache down the line. Believe me, it's not the best thing to do to women, but, I'll but out.
You still have my respect and no bad feelings.
xx

WDKY said...

ROFL!!! "Wires crossed" would be an understatement. What - you really think I'd be such a complete arsehole?

Tsk... really!

FJL said...

Well, I don't know what to think...! I feel that first and foremost it's none of my business. I do feel though that indiscretion about a woman's private life isn't up my street. I'll go with my feelings, and like I said, enjoy and no disrespect.

WDKY said...

Well you can think whatever you want to think, FJL, but I'd be grateful if you could now stop posting comments about it on here.

Thanks.

NML said...

This has to be the funniest post I have read for ages, mostly down to the fact that I know that 'BR' has been mistaken for Baggage Reclaim. I have been howling with laughter.
FJL, I'm a big girl and I am more than able to defend myself and WDKY is NOT the type of guy that if he was screwing my brains out he'd post an email from me on his blog with such an 'obvious' point of reference! He's able to post the email because it's anonymous! This 'BR' is not me and I shouldn't have to defend a non-existent sexual relationship by email or on this blog, however I won't see WDKY dragged over the hot coals over nothing. 'Upset and heartache'along with a good seeing to is not what I'm getting from WDKY. Let it go and don't start another comments/email/blog thing please. Enough.

NewYorkMoments said...

See, you're having all the fun now! No more corporate job & lot's of new ladies :-) It's going to be a happy new year for you!

WDKY said...

NML, it's not even worth thinking about, so please don't worry... (mind you, it's got me thinking now...)

NYM, I'll quote you in 6 months when I'm penniless with no work, and no women will come anywhere near me!

Don't be silly. Positive thinking, now!

K.D. Morgan said...

You are right - Christmas is a good time to feel good about yourself. Enjoy!

Too many people tend to think about all that is missing and the things they do not have at this time of year.

Enjoy it all and celebrate *smiles*

ladylongfellow said...

Good lord...look at the blog drama! *gasp*

Well, damn, does this mean when you come to visit me, or I visit you, it won't be blogged about?

kimmyk said...

sounds like your stars are aligned...finally.

glad to hear your life across the pond is going very well.
way to end out the year...new job...2 new women in your life.....

I hope it carries on through 2006!

Sher said...

My, my... how things change in 24 hours around here!

I will admit it now... I am "BR" alias for "Big Red".

Now that the gig is up, let's hope FJL can concentrate on more important things than who's shagging who.

WDKY ~ I'll expect you later this evening xx

WDKY said...

KD, I know peole get pissed off with the whole PMA thing, but I actually think it's right. I rarely wallow, if ever, and believe me my life has been anything but straightforward.

LL, don't worry. We can compose the post between us, once we recover enough energy to type.

Kimmy, thank you, sweetheart. I've had a pretty rough couple of years, and olne that I can look back on with a degree of enjoyment would be... nice.

Big Red - prepare yourself, I'm on my way. I hope you're ready for some wondrous loving.

Blueprincesa said...

Uh-oh... that sneaky little BR is just dying to get her clutches into you!

I've gotta say though, that email... she's got a way with words, that girl

unforgiving b*tch said...

All these new ladies for the new year? Way to go WDKY...

You're some kind of man...

Caterpillar said...

Hi sexy! I'm so happy that you're happy and having a wonderful weekend!

And I have NO DOUBT that you are, indeed, an amazing lover!!! I think most of us women who read you are wishing we could have a go with you as well! :)

Blondie said...

Having woke up for a drink of water and quick scan of blogs...

Apparently my nap this afternoon to catch up on lost sleep had terrible timing!! ;-)

The date with the Indian beauty is enough to make my own romantic heart get all "awww". I love a good ambience in a restaurant...let alone a rapport with a delicious date. hehe

BR is my kind of girl. To have such a way with words and Que Cera Cera point of view. It is something I aspire to have...I'm not there yet but I truly admire her. She has you in knots and I love that. hehe

I'm quite a shameless girl at times but it seems as if I'm too late to pretend I'm BR. haha "Blonde Redhead" *sigh*

Ah well, I can snuggle back into my blankets and giggle that someone got so pretentious in your comments. I like your replies and strong backbone WDKY. It makes you even more sexy.

*kisses*

WDKY said...

Blue, I think you may have a point. She's very... naughty.

UB - sometimes the dice fall in your favour. It's more luck than judgement though, don't you think?

Cat... I'm sure you're exaggerating wildly, but thanks :-)

Ruthie - it was nice that the date went so well, I must admit. And that BR... she is, indeed, something of a girl.

check said...

a thing for indian girls??? hmmm! now if only i was..u know what right? especially with the wondrous lover bit!
BR sounds like fun..nice e mail.. even if there isnt the long term or romantic thing goin on.. she'd still be fun to hang out with i think...
my...FJL really had it on! and u english guys are so good at polite rebuttals!! well done T! il need classes from u if u can take out some time..

WDKY said...

Check, did I forget to mention that to you? :-)

Yes, BR is most certainly fun!

networkchic said...

It doesn't surprise me that you are a sensous lover. Damn ocean between us. :-)

WDKY said...

Yes... it's either a damn shame or very lucky, depending on which way you look at it.
