A Love Rectangle, Not a Triangle

Well, I have to say I am in something of a love rectangle at the moment. The popular term is love triangle when there are three people involved, but I seem to have acquired three men who express an interest.

I have been single for years and years and years too, sometimes not always by choice, either. And now it’s as if the Universe has suddenly got the memo that maybe, just maybe, I would like to be with someone.

The trouble is, however, no matter how nice it would be I just can’t simply go out with all three of them. It would seem they’re like buses: not one for ages and then three turn up all at once.

The first guy I have known for years and I started seeing him January.
The second is one of my neighbours who I asked out eighteen months ago, but nothing ever came of it until we kissed last summer and then still nothing else happened. And the third one I have known for only nine months and we met through a mutual hobby.

Man one and man two, though, I never know where I am with them. Man two has the better reason for saying one thing and then doing another and that’s because I went after him last year. Man one came after me and has since backed off, this I find particularly hurtful seeing as I have done the most for him. And man three has just shown he is reliable with his words matching up to his actions.

I can’t ever seeing it working out with man one and two as I never know where I am with them. But hopefully, just hopefully, man number three will get lucky …

Spectacles, Testicles, Wallet and Watch

I had an hour’s booking this week with a lovely man who in response to the question I ask of everyone when they leave: Have you got everything? He replies with yes, spectacles, testicles, wallet and watch.

I burst out laughing. I’ve never heard of this expression before and obviously never watched the film it was used in. At the time, I was unaware of the film link; I just thought my client had made it up himself.

It was only when I mentioned it to one of my regulars yesterday he mentioned the film. I think I might watch it later on when I have some time. Like tonight, I was supposed to be going on a date but they cancelled with two hours notice. I’m not actually that bothered as I am supposed to be seeing someone else, but I use that term very loosely as I’ve not seen him for months, either.

And I wonder why I still think of myself as single. (Biggest eye roll coming on).

As Alice Deejay sang: Do You Think You’re Better off Alone?

Yeah, I certainly do.
