I am a delicate and coy little flower - no really!
True to his promise, Berry Boy indeed did send me a follow-up email from our date on Saturday. It was brief and to the point. Allow me to reproduce it in its entirety for you.
Oh well, only took me a couple of days to polish off the raspberries. Hope you had fun picking them - I certainly did!
I read this with a glimmer of hope - surely an exclamation mark is a good sign? Of course, I am a girl, and will always read far more into it that may be warranted. Wishtup read it and said that Berry Boy now had a clear conscience. He said he would email and he did - and no further response was required. Despite this, I decided to ignore every dating book I have ever read, and responded to BB's email asking if he would like to catch up again sometime.
After a day of waiting for a response (isn't email supposed to be quick!!???), he replied, that he "would love to", but followed it by asking "when, where and why?". "WHY?" I know I did try to tone down the outrageous flirtation that I am known for, but I didn't think I was that effective. Might have to step it up a notch then for the next encounter!
