Aaaaah! Guess who sent me an Instant Message at work today?!?!
You guessed it. Flynn!!!
I was good and didn’t initiate. I let him come to me, and come to me he did.
Flynn opened with, “Howdy!”, which fits his charming country character perfectly. After we made small talk for a few minutes, he invited me to his church’s Thanksgiving potluck dinner tonight. I, of course, said I would love to be there (along with my famous pumpkin chocolate chip muffins)! Then he asked if I had lunch plans. Wow – double-whammy. I already had a lunch meeting planned, but we agreed to meet for lunch next week before leaving for the Thanksgiving holidays.
We managed to chat for about twenty minutes before I excused myself for a business meeting. Our witty conversation was more fun than I’ve had in a long time. I laughed out loud on multiple occasions, and I’m pretty sure I was smiling the entire twenty minutes (and for about twenty minutes afterward). My coworkers probably all think I’m crazy, laughing out loud seemingly to myself, all alone in my cubicle. Ha. I’m sure it’s not the first time they’ve thought I was crazy!
As fun as Flynn is, I’m trying to be wise about this situation. I’m trying to enjoy the attention and flirtation while guarding my heart and having no expectations about a future because, as much as I enjoy Flynn’s company, he is someone else’s boyfriend. And I’m not a boyfriend stealer. And that “someone else” has been pretty clear that she expects to be a fiance soon. And I’m definitely not a fiance stealer. I’ve had my heart broken too many times to do that to someone else.
And besides: If he’ll do it for you, girls… he’ll do it to you. You better believe it.
okay! I just read your other three parts of how you met this guy…wow! I mean…wow! Talk about God working! this is sooo cool. So, how did the church thing go? Can’t wait to hear how to lunch went! Are things looking up? – oh the suspense!!
Ha! Hey Melanie! I’m so glad someone has followed this saga and is pumped up about it because, honestly, I haven’t been this little girl giddy in a long time. I have decided not to post much more about Flynn because, unlike most of the date stories I post about, this story is precious to me and too personal to share publicly. But I will disclose that the church thing went okay, and lunch was fabulous. So… yes, things are looking up!
