Ah, well, an interesting development happened since I published my ‘Crossed Wires’ post the other day. A positive one, which must be a first on this blog. The lady in question responded (almost immediately) to this post, stating that I wasn’t imagining things after all. She was indeed flirting with me. She seemed delighted with my post, as if it were some sort of green-light signal she had been waiting for some time.
So, we started talking things out and, while we still have a long road to travel before we reach the ‘sign thingy’ stage, we agreed to get to know each other on a more personal level.
Both of us have delicate situations that must be resolved before we get to manage a face-to-face encounter (mine being stuck in a backward country that’s crumbling like a wet paper supermarket bag… and hers of a more personal nature… plus at least 5000 miles between the two of us), but I suspect (and hope) everything will end up nicely.
Meanwhile, getting to know her, by the slow process of meeting her online, will be time well spent; we have developed a sort of ‘Harry-met-Sally’ state of affairs so far, which I consider a good augur at this point.
It could have been more of a ‘Tango & Cash’ sort of relationship, you know. 😛
