    That's why this confused me, haha.

    For a chunk of the night a distant acquaintance, him and I were having quite an engaging conversation. I mention this because when we were about to jump into our respective cabs (the guy was taking the same cab as the distant acquaintance) the guy genuinely says something along the lines of "Can I ask our mutual friend for your number? To go out". I reply something like: "That distant acquaintance has my number, too. So you can ask him. Let's all do something." Obviously I blew it by dismissing it as a group hang out. That's why I then contacted him and whatnot.

    So I just try to be fun and light when he calls. Just following his lead. I noticed, he is a caller not a texter.... So in between calls, every so often I send a text to show I'm interested... but its usually something funny or not requiring a response. And he does respond timely but then I let it go....
    Good on you! I hope it's still going well! Well, when I sent him funny stuff, he'd still reply with "Haha, this is hilarious" or something a day later or something.

    Hehe, that's good to know. What some consider one thing, others may see it differently. :)

    Batya, I enjoyed reading about your experience with lovely guy. My experience has been similar to yours in that men normally find a way to ask you out.

    I also agree with this. I'm in that sense a traditionalist as well, so I couldn't ask a man out on a date.

    You're wise but also funny, hehe! I don't believe in boredom as there are too many things that can be done in life, even during self-isolation.

    I think that's the key right there. Overthinking and "too much thinking time".

    It's good to talk to you all lovely people and I appreciate your insight! enotalone is a really nice haven!
