l:d There's a crew of contractors (:D)working in the library at the moment. Building shelves and re arranging the collection.
Big job.

There's this big Fijian bloke always chatting to me when I'm working. About my age (52) ( I shelve the returned books)
It's fairly heavy work and he's always popping over to help me lift heavy stuff.

Yesterday at 1pm as he was knocking off for lunch and said, "come on, lets go have some lunch"
I said, "sorry, I don't finish till 2pm, then I have to get my kids from school"

Today, he was locked out of the underground car park (contractors don't get a swipe thing) I came in and swiped my card and let him in.
Later he came over and said "thanks, I was waiting for an angel" :eek: :D

Now I was married for 28 years and wouldn't recognise a chat up line if it came with red ribbons and silver bells.:D

He's kinda cute, but It's also kinda embarrassing

No, seriously I'm not bragging.
I havent cold dated seriously for ever.

I don't do the one night/ casual date thing. Too old, too hurt, too scared.
And his pursuit and language while perfectly respectful, seems a tad over the top. "waiting for an Angel???" sheesh :D I'm hardly that :D

Maybe it's just a cultural difference? I'm too used to Aussie blokes reticence. :D

I wish Botebum was still here or any other islanders :D

But I suppose having lunch wouldn't hurt.

that's the problem, he's not cool, ..well lets just say , in front of my collegues and boss it's becoming a bit obvious.
All perfectly sweet and respectful but a bit ... I dunno.. not what one expects at work.

How do I explain? he doesnt exactly follow me around, but every time we cross paths, he stops work and greets me, or stops what he's doing to help me lift something or carry something. I'm not used to this sort of attention.

It sounds like he naturally uses forms that are of respect and endearment in conversation.
THere are still some of us who consider any woman "a Lady" until proven otherwise.
Sweetheart, Angel, My Lady, me love or my love here in the states are all words that can be taken three ways.

1 as an insult implying they are less as a person in the circumstances (like felling giant trees with a chainsaw professionally as a job, or giving them the easy horse 'cause they are female.

2 they can be taken as false lines used as a come on by prowlers of the male population. They are imitating number 3 (next one) thinking it will work for them.

3 It can just be a re-assurance that a bloke has no less than honorable intentions towards you and respects you fully as a person and woman. I have found over the years that I get phone numbers and more with out asking, just for being a respectful person who obviously finds said woman interesting or beautiful or just nice to talk with. So the group 2 guys keep trying to imitate what blokes like me say. They don't understand that If the words are intended to deceive and or are not a personal old fashioned way of talk and actions using my words will never get them the p;hon numbers and go out for coffee and dinner and so on.

So deep six the first group and never trust the second group.

The third group is up to you single person by person. I would suggest that someones up bringing and their culture be kept in mind.

In my case I was raised strictly as an "officer and gentleman" from the time I learned to walk. I was given my own Zippo at age five to take to weddings and other formal or even semi formal events as an Off. and Gent. is always prepared to lite a lady's cigarette even if he does not smoke.

Dad was a very high ranking Naval Officer when I was born, and ended up going all the way to O7 before final retirement from the NAVY reserve.

We all like to know that someone thinks us attractive, even if we have no inclination to act on impulse.
Some people are just genuinely gracious. I learned a long time ago that being flirtaciously polite to people you have no romantic interest in makes them feel better, and doesn't hurt you at all.

You're in control. The poor schmuck can do nothing but hope. You don't need help - he does!

Getting back into the dating scene after a hiatus can be a bit daunting. If he seems like a nice guy, go out with him! I like the idea of a casual lunch or coffee at first, so you can chat and get to know each other better.

Life is short, and not getting any longer.

It does though still apply when it is someone you might develop a romantic interest in.

Have lunch with him, where's the harm in that? If you wait till the job's done, he might think you keep putting him off because you're not interested.

As to why men are attracted to librarians, having dated one in college, may I suggest it's the large frontal lobes? On the brain, I mean, get your mind out of the gutter. Some fellas really like to talk to a woman who is smart.

11-10-2011, 10:31 PM
Uh, is there a possibility that maybe he's just homesick and he's missing his mum? He can't be there to take care of her and he feels guilty. He sees you doing things and he tries to help. It assuages his conscience.

Maybe what he really wants is a good home cooked meal and a little fussing over. After all, he is a stranger in a strange land.

Maybe he was raised to respect women and...

WHAT AM I SAYING???!!!

HE'S EVIL! WATCH OUT!!

Unless he has a really neat boat then it's ok. :D

johnw
11-11-2011, 03:45 AM
At 58, I always suspect my judgement, as well. Sometimes, you have to leave it to the other person. Keep in mind, at our age, anyone trying seems a bit weird. I can tell you enough about that, mostly women who thought I had more money than I did, but hey, not everyone is a vindictive, selfish bully, and at our age, it's easy to forget that, too. It's entirely possible that someone quite nice could like you. Would you want to miss out on that?

I'm an old bachelor, a silverback with a taste for screwball comedies, but you can't expect me to be so cynical as to give up on the possibility of someone our age finding love. Has your library a copy of Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day? Read that, and tell me love dies off at 30.

Meli

So, have you gone out with him yet? A nice part of being in your fifties, at least in my experience, is that you can take your time and actually get to know someone, without the flurry of hormones that dominate our twenties and thirties.

My current love interest just turned 53. Our romance is over the phone at the moment, yet we've known each other since we were children, without having seen each other in twenty years, and have always been in love with each other, through all the joys and tribulations that lay in between.

Um, if you like this guy, get to know him better. By all means, set some boundaries. Spending time together could be good, or you could run screaming the other direction. Impossible to know without more time spent together.

Yeah, I'll see what eventuates.

I have had about 10 RSVP (internet dates) in the second year of my singledom. 50% nice 50% tossers. no sparks.
I gave up on that.

I dont mind being on my own with the kids, enjoying freedom ect, but 30 years of it seems a bit grim.
Neither am I willing to take a chance on the first bloke that shows a keen interest a naturally occurring meeting.

Oh Bugger, I'll see how things develop

There's big differences here, social, cultural... maybe that's why I'm kinda interested and kinda scared.
Seems like he tries to change his approach every time he learns a bit more about me.
Since I told him I restore furniture and do heavy work, I've stopped being a delicate flower and now he says I'm a strong woman.
I'm accshully a little bit, 5'7 and 60 kg

I reckon I am a good man - steady job, don't hit people, don't drink, good parent, not bad looking, even a good cook - and I found myself single at 57 because my wife found a bloke she liked better. Yes, I've since been snapped up, but I was so "out of practice" that when she who has now snapped me up first looked at me, my oldest and best friend had to say, "Don't stand there like a stunned mullet - get her phone number!" |:)

It's interesting what baggage people bring to their relationships that after the first flush of enthusiasm becomes a burden for both.
If anything happened to my partner I don't think I'd want to be 'snapped up' again.

(Now that looks weird in print! The two remarks are actually separate and about two different people!)

Meli
11-11-2011, 06:11 AM
Funny you should say that. It never ceases to amaze me how quickly some men replace a wife/partner after a bereavement. I've come to the conclusion they just get lonely faster.

Baggage comes with a second marriage, it's how well you pack with the heavy stuff at the bottom that counts:D

Meli that's the only reason many of them got married in the first place, a cook, washerwoman, housekeeper etc with, they fondly imagine, cheap sex laid on as well.

This is a wooden boat forum, so everyone here must surely know, "If it floats flies or f.... it's cheaper by the hour!"

There's an old bloke down the road. At least 80 whos wife died a few years back. she was a strict catholic and a bit hard.
Old beau hooked up with an old friend within months.
They are so sweet, live separately (and the old bloke is very independant) but they wander down the road hand in hand.

I think you are being hard, Some blokes just cant cope on there own.

I know a couple of younger blokes too. Wives died. one of these men nursed his wife through a year of incredible pain and publicly grieved.
He found a new love within 18 months, he still mentions his first and no 2 is cool with it. he just got so lonely and depressed. new wife is good (came with two teenage daughters) saving of him.

I agree with Meli.

I was coping on my own with two boys. I am acquiring a bonus smaller boy with the package. Huge saving in clothes and Lego!:d

I just remember some of the hopeless drongos I knew in my teens, and see their equivalent about still but I suppose their mothers never bothered to teach them self sufficiency. Mine did.

Pxxx off! Last night after work I made scones, a Dundee cake, French onion soup and a shepherd's pie left in the fridge for their mother to feed them when she calls to see them today; I also did some washing and ironing. In fact I reckon, and indeed I am told, that I am a blxxxy good catch! :D

Nah Meli, they just can't look after themselves. They really want a servant but a partner isn't subject to industrial regulations and regular hours with overtime and holidays and weekends off.I really wish katherine had gotten up before this morning and stoked the woodstoves and made pancakes for breakfast. As it is, I'm sitting in a cold house drinking black coffee. . .

Syed - they are lucky to have a good regular customer living in the same house! Besides I think they make most of the mess inside the car!

Some women cannot tell when they are being hit on. Then you get the ones where they think every dude is hitting on them. I tend not to waste time on either as there is generally nothing of interest there. If I am looking for a well used car it better be either damn reliable or rare. Not many of those around.

Well there's an insight. Equating women with inanimate objects. Yeah, figures.

I think TD dropped the ball so I'm just going to spill it.
This guy is a mole ,working for the People's Front of Fijia ,and is trying to ruin Australia by bringing down the library system.
It's pretty obvious to me that he is chatting you up so that he can get illicit access to the returns trolley.
IMHO, he is either changing the Dewey Decimal numbers or returning his own late books on your trolley.
Have you noticed either a label-maker/sticky-tape shaped or book/rolled up magazine shaped bulge anywhere on his person?
If so,you should report him immediately!
