It’s been a loooooong time since I’ve posted anything. Sorry about that, but frankly, not much has been going on. Until now.
I had a date last week and it went well, but besides parting words after the date (which don’t hold much weight unless it actually happens), no second date has been planned. We’ve texted back and forth but he hasn’t asked me out a second time and after ruining things with Hockey Guy because I pushed for a second date, I am not going to be the one to bring it up. We’ll see if he does at some point.
I started a new job a little over a month ago. It’s been great and I’m enjoying it a lot. It’s exactly where I want to be. School is done in two weeks and that’s pretty exciting too! My new job is a Government job and as soon as I started, I changed my occupation on POF from “Student” to “Ministry of _______”. Within a couple days of starting my new job, I got a message from a guy, with no picture and not much of a profile, saying that he worked for the same ministry but he’d never seen me around so didn’t think we were working out of the same building.
Normally I don’t reply to people without pictures, but I was curious. I wrote back and said that I was very new at work so that’s probably why he’s never seen me. Turns out we do work in the same building but just in different departments. A department that mine interacts with quite a lot so it was only a matter of time until we ran into each other. I said it was unfair that he’d seen my pictures and could pick me out and work but I hadn’t seen his, so he told me his name and let me stalk his public pictures on Facebook.
He was not really my type at first glance but his pictures were all quite old. We talked a few times over the last month but still hadn’t seen each other at work…. Until last week. I was doing some new training and I immediately knew him when I saw him. It was a situation where we couldn’t speak or even say hi and were on opposite sides of the room from each other. That’s something to do with where I work, which I can’t really reveal on here but just trust me when I said that it wasn’t a moment where we could finally say hi.
I knew he would likely recognize me, but I never even caught his eye contact. I must say, he was MUCH more attractive in person. Probably because he had a bit of beard scruff and we all know I love beards. And he was in uniform. No, he’s not a cop (I wish). I messaged him when I got home to ask if he saw me and he said that he did. We chatted about something funny that we both experienced at work that day and today we talked again and I gave him my number to text me instead of through POF.
It’s funny, no one at work knows we have met or are on POF. Not that it’s a big secret or anything, but it’s kind of fun knowing him without actually having met him in person yet, but having work in common and talking about things we have both seen. Hard to explain but it’s like a fun secret. I’m sure I’ll get to talk to him at work soon but based on where my training is going, it might not be for another couple months. I’d make a bet that we hang out outside of work before we even talk at work. Funny how that works.
