I am such an ignoramus! Or naive... Take your pick.
On the train I sat next to a man because he had a plug socket I could use for my phone charger.
As I had to ask to use the socket (as it was in front of him) conversation was sparked by me.
He was very interesting - from New Delhi working in Glasgow.....
We exchange phone numbers and facebooks, because he sees me using Facebook and I assume he wants more local friends having moved recently to Scotland.
2hrs later he asks "so are you married, have a boyfriend...?".
THEN the penny drops!
It's quite nice to think someone would be interested. Perhaps this dieting think has made some difference... Been a long time since I've been chatted up. So long I no longer recognise it.
Note to self: drop in boyfriend reference earlier in the somewhat unlikely case that the situation might occur in future. Not sure I used "we" very often either in my stories now I think about it. That'd be a good idea too.
