I have an update for you.
It concerns him, Mr Dipstick.
If you can't be bothered to click away and read the link, I'll precis in bad haiku:
Bobby asks boy on date
"Yes, when my trolley-dolly 'boyf' is away"
Bobby wanders off.
Remember we spoke about it? What kind of knob-end goes "yes, let's go for a drink but only when my significant other is out of town." What a shit.
This week I'm at the gym again and you'll never guess...
Yes, Trolley-Dolly has dumped Liam (for that is going to be his name from now on).
I knows this because Liam's talking about some random guy. I says to Liam 'but aren't you spoken for?'
"Well..." In short, they broke up.
After our session Liam and I are filling our protein shakes at the water cooler and Liam goes "maybe we should go out some time for a proper drink."
(Please note this is nearly identical to the way I asked him.) I says that would be nice. That was a week ago.
Since then Liam has mentioned it every day, at least four times. Every time I have given him a whimsical non-committed answer.
As far as I care, I asked him out like anyone else would ask a mate. He assumed I wanted some dirty little tryst while the" trolley-dolly boyf" was away.
I will go out for a drink with him but not until he's nearly begging because he blew up my first offer so spectacularly.
Of course Liam has a very good physique. This is why I've not immediately gone "piss off dude, you shat on my first proposal."
He's still a dipstick though. For now.
