You`re a good listener, I`ve not asked you one single question!!

“C” was a nice guy so I was looking forward to meeting him in Manchester and he was happy enough to come in on the train from Bolton.He was easy to spot as he actually looked like his photos and he had a gorgeous smile so I was a bit optimistic about this one…..Once we were sat down in the bar I found he was really easy to talk to and had plenty of stories to tell that somehow always involved meeting a woman….such as the time he had planned a trip to America to drive along Route 66. So I would imagine a lot of planning and money went into this trip as well as having to book a month off work and was amazed when he said that on the first night there he met a woman who asked could she go along for the ride and he agreed!! Two weeks into the trip the lady informed him she was only allowed two weeks off work and she would have to return but being a gentleman he couldn`t let her go back on her own so turned the car around and drove back…..After listening to a few more tales I could see there was a theme going on so I asked “How long have you been split up from your last partner?” “3 weeks” Ok….and what happened there then?” ” I really don`t know. She just wanted me out.” Really? You don`t know? Oh I think you do know C and I`ll bet my last penny that it involved one of her friends……In the meantime we`ve gone on to his grandaughter and I must have looked at oh I reckon 50 photos, a couple of videos on his phone, lovely little thing but let`s face it nothing to with me! Looking at my watch I said I had to leave.”Really? Oh! You`re a good listener I`ve not asked you a single question!”…….I know C, I know……
In the meantime good old “P” has messaged again. I must admit I replied to his last one about his showbiz friend having a budgie circus because I can tell P isn`t trying to be funny he`s just lonely I think……but this is what I got this week…
“I`m going caddying for my friend tomorrow.Last time we went he got me sausage and chips and 4 pints of lager. Next door`s cat fell off the roof yesterday, I went and told them but nothing was broken it was just winded. Not happy with this new gas fire I`ve got it`s sending off fumes but the gas man said it was residue. Let me just say I know how to treat a lady. If she`s got her eye on any appliance for the home I would treat her to it.It`s still looking like July when I go to my nephew`s” Who said romance was dead??
