I met this guy a week ago. He seemed gentle
with the smile of a cool PE teacher. We hit it off
so went for a drink the next day. I had a frothy
coffee and he had a fruit smoothie with bits in.
I enjoyed his company and things went a bit further
the next four days: we were making
each other laugh and learning. He told me
he was one of three and hated his hairline.
He said he liked seeing shapes in clouds
and how Edge was his favourite wrestler.
He told me about the best pizza he’s eaten
and how he puts on a mask in front of his mates.
We chilled the next day and I kissed him.
I’d love to hear how he thought the week went.
