a proper conversation

key account executive surprised me when he called me on the day i was warded. and then i was discharged and i was a lil hesitant bout calling him to let him know. so i decided that i would drop him an email when i got back to work again in 2 week's time.

he beat me to it. today he called again to ask how i was.

and we proceeded to have a fantastic 45min conversation. somehow this guy and i really do get along. the conversation was friendly and open. and once again we talked bout some more personal stuff. the conversation only ended when both our phones ran outta battery.

i left the conversation feeling really happy. like finally i had an actual proper conversation with a guy that i could talk to.

this made me realise that it's been entirely too long since i've had a proper conversation with a guy. sure i talk to guys at work but more often than not it's bout work related stuff. and even if it does border on the more personal, it doesn't get all that personal. and we certainly don't talk with the whole 'getting to know you' purpose in mind. as for the random guys i meet in clubs, somehow those hardly got beyond idle chitchat, perhaps flirting and sometimes random kissing.

talking to key account executive made me realise that i've missed that. proper conversation. and in this day and age of texting and IMs, on the phone no less. it's been absolutely ages since i last talked to a guy on the phone.

so key account executive suggested us going to a salsa club for a drink once i'm all well again. and i agreed. anyhow it sounds interesting.

that said, i'm not gonna get all that excited since i'm still not sure bout his marriage status. at best he's divorced. and i'm not even sure how i feel bout that. and then of 'coz there's the whole work connection thing. but for now i'm just gonna go with the nice feeling of being on the same wavelength enough with a guy to just talk and have a good conversation.

You don't pee where you swim, honey!

(that's my best Blanche-advice, but then again, I'm not Blanche, I'm Sophia...) :)

Hold off, and see. If he's divorced/single, go for it. Just think that if things fiddle away (or worse - go straight to hell), you'll have to face an ex at the workplace on a daily basis...

Even so - more power to you!

Flirting is all about follwing the kinds advice - lil' less conversation lil' more action plz...

... but when you want to connect on a deeper level, and want something to last, conversation is definatly the key. You want a man that challanges your mind, exchange new thoughts and ideas with, but also someone you can just hang out with, talk random stuff with and even share silence with without it becoming akward..

the strongest communication could be done without uttering a word..

But regarding the manager - iiih. Isn't he like already married? hmmmm

I don't know, I think you should def go out with him, unless he's still married of course. Then he's just an asshole.
