Unrequited Love

I spent the day with Jesse today. He is such a wonderful man. I feel quite lucky to have found him in my life. It never fails when we are together, he always wants to hold my hand, tell me how lovely I am and that he wishes he could marry someone just like me. He always adds he knows I am married and would never want to disrespect my husband however, I am pretty sure he is flirting with me. It’s the way he looks at me, laughs at all my jokes and wants to walk arm in arm everywhere we go. Then there are the things he says to me.

“You are one of the nicest women I have ever met.”

“Thank you, Jesse!”

“I really mean it. I so enjoy spending the day with you. You always make me feel like I really matter to you.”

“You really do matter to me, Jesse.”

“Well, I appreciate that. I’d marry you if you weren’t already married.”

“Well, Jesse, I don’t think Bob would like me marrying somebody else but thanks for thinking of me.”

“Don’t worry. I will always behave like a gentleman when we’re together. By the looks of your arms, I think you could deck me.”

“Um……thank you?”

“Besides, I’m ninety-three years old. How much trouble could I really cause you?”

“Well, Jesse, I have a funny feeling if left to your own devices, you could cause more trouble than anyone could imagine. I’m just saying….”

There May Be Snow on The Roof
But There's Still Fire in The Furnace

In the extremely unlikely event that I live to 93, I desperately want to be a sex pest too. Somehow I think you have earned the right to flirt outrageously once you pass 89 :-) (actually I have started this already)

"By the looks of your arms I think you could deck me." I am thinking he was absent that day in Flirting 101. But I want to meet this man. I may need a back up.

Dude's got game. What a rap. Bet he was quite the ladies man in his day and, based on this post, may still be. Love this.

He sounds wonderful.

Flirt away. At his age it's the only romantic thing he could physically do.

Cute and sweet. Psst, I'm single. (He sounds like a keeper.)

Coby said...

This. Was. Awesome. At first I had to think..."Is her husband's name Jesse?" So sweet!

A brother brought a (61 y.o.) neighbor over a few weeks ago. Days later, bro said the guy wanted to know if I was married (I wear a diamond ring on my ring finger). He told the guy, "No." I asked, "Did you say I was already in a relationship?" He replied, "Yes."

So, yesterday, bro says, "(neighbor) really likes you." I replied, "Good for him."

Your story is cuter.
