This isn't a problem, there's nothing anyone can do, I'm just ruminating.

I appear to have developed a raging crush on a guy I know who is literally less than half my age. We've only spoken a couple of times, and at least I've not made a fool of myself yet, which is the the main thing. And he started the conversation last time, which is one feather in my cap (Just realised what this smiley is called   ). So he's not actively avoiding me.

I suppose he is quite nice-looking, but that wouldn't be enough on its own to gain my interest. He's very talented in a number of ways, and I think that is what is driving me to want to know more about him.

I know I haven't got a snowball's chance in hell here, and if he's called for, cool, I shall turn the raving hormones onto someone else. I won't be seeing him for a few months because he's going abroad, so that's plenty of time for me to calm down a bit.

I thought these feelings belonged to the beginning of my reproductive life. The blessed M-word must be striking again.

That's all. Just wanted to get some thoughts straight in my head.

omj - age is just a number; forget that bit.

If you two connect, and share mutual interests; why shouldn't something develop? It may be a relationship; or just a fantastic friendship; but don't let minor things get in the way of letting things happen.

These things usually happen naturally and come to a natural conclusion, either friends/more than friends or maybe nothing - but don't analyse stuff too deeply (I used to do that, (still do sometimes) and it can do your head in!!!)

Maybe whilst he is abroad, he will think about you and come back knowing what he wants - and please, DON'T SAY you don't have a "snowballs chance in hell" ... who knows???

Let it take its' natural course - but don't let it "bother" you!

Thanks for your thoughts, folks.  

I very much doubt he will be thinking of me at all - I'm not even sure he knows my name.  
Still, as you say Maxine, concentrate on getting to know the person is the thing, enjoy it as far as it goes.

It wasn't too long ago that I was toying with the idea of a (fairly fit) pensioner that I know. However, he's definitely called for, so that's knocked on the head - but everything's cool. It felt nothing like this though. That's why I blame the hormones.

snap, I would not worry about the age thing.. Just go with the flow and see what happens, he may be thinking just the same thing.

Pity he's going away for a few months...  

Do you have any way to keep in touch then?

I have first hand experience that trips abroad can do strange things to a bloke. Don't be too surprised if he's not the same when he comes back.

Mind you, I once omited to tell someone who was about to go away that I had a shine for him and things ended up horribly complicated... (one of those stories that could come under the "strange but true" thread, if there was such a thing). Do you think you could handle telling him how you feel even though he's going away? I rather wish I had with hindsight...  


Onwards and upwards...

Things are really not that far advanced, believe me. I may hear about him through third parties, but that is all. As I said, we've only spoken a couple of times.

I shall bear that in mind - equally I suppose I could change....hmmm.

You never know, maybe he does know your name - or wants to know your name!  

You sound a little like me - quick to negate yourself - and you know, you really should not do that (she says, sounding very "pots and kettles"!!!) because you know (and I know!!) that men DO work in mysterious ways. Alot of men these days also like older women - (god! I watch too much Jeremy Kyle! ), and besides, age is immaterial - if you get on. He may have exactly the same thoughts going through his head - and for all you know, he may be half wishing he wasn't going away.....

I think it's "good" that you "steer clear" of "taken" blokes; that can cause way too much aggro

Have you considered that it might simply be that you have met someone special???

Blaming hormones is all very well, but you said (and I quote!!!) "It felt nothing like this though".... that is how I began to feel a few weeks after meeting the guy who is now my hubby. So I don't think it's hormones omj, not at all....

I still stand by what I said, don't think too much into it (and I really can give that advice because I'm the worlds' worst at analysing stuff) and see what happens....

Don't beat yourself up, or blame hormones - maybe, just maybe, you've stumbled across someone who could, in time, be very special...

I'm chuffed for you - but please, don't beat yourself up... PM me if you have to; having been an over-analyser most of my life and now have it more under control, I could give you some tips!!!  

Be strong; and happy!

I didn't mean to imply that that guy was giving me any encouragement - he's just good company!

What you should try and do is when you see/speak to him next say that he should send you an email to let you know how he is enjoying his time abroad or some sort of virtual postcard, if he agrees, then you know that he is interested in wanting to be in contact with you.

I think sometimes you need to grab the bull by the horns and go for it as you may regret not doing it.


I am a fairy princess, what is your wish.....
