Midnight Chats

- Published: 05 March 2017
Midnight Chats

I wasn’t expecting Mr Gherkin to message me so quickly. Normally people wait several days to ‘play it cool’ #3dayrule, but the fact that he didn’t seem to be a rule player so far was nice. We messaged back and forth for about an hour or so until 1 am, after which he asked if he could phone. It ended up being a late one – we were on the phone for six hours.

We even met up around Liverpool street, his #workends. He took us to a cocktail bar called #anise around #devonshiresquare and he even had me pick out his third cocktail for him. I of course made him order himself the #pornstarmartini #immature. You can find out more about the bar here. Although it’s a nice date place, I’d suggest getting there straight after work if you want seating. Pics of bar in the featured image above.

 

From Sizzle to Fizzle

Initially it was going well, but I made the mistake of becoming too excited and getting my hopes up. FYI if you like a guy but it’s still early stages, maybe don’t start posting things like #ireallylikeyou by #carlyraejepson on #facebook for the guy to see. Also, maybe don’t send a message wishing his Dad a #happybirthday from you when he only mentioned his Dad’s birthday once, just two weeks after meeting you, and you know, you haven’t even met his Dad #buriesfaceintohands. After a while things eventually fizzled out so I kept my distance – following the #hesjustnotthatintoyou rule.

 

The Accidental Bump In

When you’re out and you look good, do you think to yourself; ‘now would be an excellent time to run into someone I know, such as a guy that took me for granted?’ Instead you seem to only bump into people when you look like a trampy hobo and wearing your joggers with the whole in the crotch region…Am I right?

 

Well, I was having catch up drinks with my good friend Miss Clarice at #vodkarevs on #leadenhallstreet. We decided to move onto our other regular, #dirtymartini. On our way out, I bumped into Mr Gherkin who was on a night out with his work colleagues.

 

‘Hey.’ I said after a moment of hesitation whilst slowly waving.

 

After several seconds of confusion, I could tell he finally recognised me, ‘oh hey! How are you?’

 

‘I’m fine thanks – you?’

 

‘I’m good – I’m just here with my work lot.’

 

I waved at his colleagues as he motioned over to them.

 

‘I was just catching up with my friend. This is one of our regulars.’

 

‘No way. This is where we go for monthly work drinks. How’ve you been anyway?’

 

‘Good thanks. I’m really sorry but I have to go as my friends walked out and I have to catch up with her, but I’ll catch up with you another time.’

 

‘Yeah sure, I’ll see you later.’ He replied as we hugged goodbye.

 

Several Hours Later…

I was sitting on the train back home from Paddington station when the phone began ringing. I answered immediately thinking it was my taxi ride, only to find out that it was a tipsy Mr Gherkin. No judgement since I too was tipsy #hangsheaddowninshame

‘Hi, are you already here? I’m still about 10 minutes away.’

 

‘What?’

 

‘Who is this?’

 

‘It’s Mr Gherkin’.

 

‘Oh, Mr Gherkin! Sorry – I just ordered a taxi so thought you were them!’

 

‘That’s okay – where’d you go? You vanished.’

 

‘We went to Dirty Martini after.’

 

‘You said we’d chat later so I just assumed you went downstairs. I was looking for you everywhere!’

 

An inner cockiness came from within that I was trying to conceal.

 

‘No I didn’t; I said we’re on our way out and that I’d chat to you another time.’

 

‘Ah…okay…You know what?’

 

‘What?’

 

‘My friends think you’re crazy hot.’

 

I laughed, ‘Well, tell ‘em I said thanks.’

 

‘And now they think I’m crazy.’

 

‘’Oh…ah ok, wait why…as in because you’re not with me?’

 

‘Yeah. And you know what, I agree with them. I think I’m crazy too.’

 

‘Hmmm…How was your night?’

 

The conversation went on for another several hours, well into the early hours of the morning.
