Mr. Wonderful

WOW! Those were his words about my profile. But those are my thoughts about him. We wrote back and forth on Frumster for awhile and then im'ed for another half hour. Until we both realized how comfortable we were with each other that at the same time he asked for my number I supplied it.

His voice.... yes, you all know that I have a thing for voices... well, he has a British accent. I wasn't sure if I liked it at first. I thought that it sounded a little formal, but then as we continued talking I felt so at ease that now I absolutely adore his accent. We spoke for about four hours on the phone. Neither of us wanted to hang up, but he finally did. He has somewhere he needs to be at 8:30.

We talked about children, parents, imaginary numbers, physics, Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy, and even some gemara about carrying things on Shabbos (not picking something up if it's at rest and what at rest means exactly). He was quoting Tosfos verbatim to me.

He told me some things that were very personal, but it didn't feel like anything was being rushed... except for time shooting by while we were on the phone. He told me that for the past week he had been reading my profile once a day and kept on seeing different aspects of me in it. He finally decided to contact me and boy, I am sure glad he did.

I have a date or rather "we have a plan" - his words. Friday lunch in the city. He's flying in to Oz tomorrow night/tonight for a meeting on Friday, and he's staying for Shabbos and Sunday out in Queens with friends. DB is with his father for the weekend so maybe I will have a date Sat. night too. I already have plans with fellow blogger sw/fm for basketball on Sunday.

He's understanding, caring, funny, intelligent.... yes, I'm gushing, but this was really unbelievable. He's not crazy and trying to make things rush. But he is very interested. AND ...drum roll please he has no problem with relocating to Kansas. You read it correctly no problem at all.

I need some help. I know that I've been living in Oz for quite a long time, but I really haven't gone out with stbx or anyone else (excluding Bud) to any restaurants. He would like to get some good fried chicken for lunch where should we go????? In Manhattan

I HAVE A DATE!!!!!!!!! Omigosh what am I going to wear?????

btw-I'm going to check him out with a very good friend of mine who lives in England. He went to school with her twin brother. I'll keep you posted

I think Kosher Delight has fried chicken. Good luck! I hope you have a great time!

Scraps said...

Oh wow, good luck! This guy sounds great--I hope he's as awesome in real life as you make him sound online!

When I'm not sure what to wear, I usually go for the type of outfit I'd call a "Rosh Chodesh outfit", a little nicer than usual but not overdressed. I wish I could advise you about the fried chicken, but alas, my experience in that area is sorely lacking.

I am so happy for you, good luck, and no matter how good the date is make sure another date don't interfere with our date!!!:)

The chicken fingers here rock: http://www.wolfandlambsteakhouse.com/
and the service is good, and it's not grimy.

I totally get you and I have my outfit picked out, with jewelry, and just got a pedicure.... so I have pretty pink toes

sw/fm,

diana,
welcome and thanks for the suggestion. I'll let him choose between wolf and lamb and mr. broadway.

You are so loyal, but I haven't been practicing so you have the edge...it's so freakin cool that I am one of your labels, wow!

Foreign accents can be sexy.

sw/fm,
I figured if I was going to write about how badly I'm going to beat you on Sunday then you certainly deserve a label.

jake,
Can I call you Jake? I absolutely agree... but then again I find almost anything sexy...

socialworker/frustrated mom said...

Are you really really good or you just doing a superb job scaring me:P

come running said...

sw/fm,
just playin' around. If DB can make more baskets than I can, I don't think you have anything to be worried about. Looking forward to it
