A few months back me mother met this guy named Barry. They met through a group of people that go on one-two week kayak trips (my mom is big on kayaks which is good for an older lady to do I guess)
Anyway, the two hit it off and he started getting interested in her. He was calling all the time, emailing, setting up plans to come down and get together with her, etc, etc. She really seemed to like the guy.
Now, my mom is kind of shy and has a hard time meeting people. when she does meet people – and she likes them-- she has a habit of waiting for them to make the first moves (she won’t call them until they call her because “a woman doesn’t do those things”)
So, I’m always happy for her when someone takes interest and knows how to deal with her,. um,. dating quirks.
At last, after a couple of years of downtime, she’s sweet on a guy and he’s sweet on her. She’s all gitty for him, looking forward to his calls, and it seems like something might bloom from this.
