"How long have you liked me?"
"For a long, long time."
"How long?"
"A long time."
"I didn't know you liked me until you 'put the moves' on me."
"You mean when I asked you for coffee?"
"That was a long time ago! Like February! You've liked me since February?"
"I've liked you a lot longer than that."
"How long?"
"I liked you when I first met you, three years ago. You were always so different. So funny and entertaining. I would look forward to our parties because it meant that I would get to see you."
"Really? Wow, I never knew."
"Well, it's not like I could have done anything about it... I mean, I WAS married."

I have found myself in the most unconventionally awesome relationship, ever. Don't worry, he's been divorced from his wife since September. We just started dating about 3 weeks ago. That conversation above took place last night. I love taking things slow... and goodness knows he does too.

There's plenty more to this story, but I'm tired and kind of want to make my posts worth it to you guys :-)

i wouldn't say he's smooth but looks like he had done it well.

Am I the only one that sees a downside here? This is coming from a guy who just got out a relationship with a recent divorcee.

I'm not gonna shit on your parade, but I will set up a few caution and yield signs... Perhaps even a Wet Floor sign for good measure.

Tread lightly, and good luck.

Good for you. I hope it all works out.

I don't want to get your hopes too high but I knew a girl who did that and she got married to the guy. :)

Streon: I was thinking the same thing! Thanks :-)

Milwaukee girl: Don't worry, more's coming... I've got better stories than this one, that's for sure!

Carmen: I love the butterflies too. I get them pretty much every time I see him. *swoon* haha

Noe: I know, I was completely shocked when he told me that!

Alice: Yeah, when I sat down to write this post, I had forgotten EXACTLY what he said, but this is a good rendition. He's a pretty smooth talker, but not in a "let's just bone" sort of way like other guys I've come to know.

Pele: How am I supposed to go anywhere with all those signs?? ;-) Thanks for your cynicism :-)

Churlita: Thanks!

Lindsey: Thanks too!

PhD: It's too early to think about that!!! haha but thanks for the good thoughts.

He obviously lied to you. Men will say anything to laid. Reminds me of all of the things NotElliot used to say to you.

anonymous: that's really interesting, considering I never slept with NotElliot. What things did he used to say to me, anyway?
