If you haven’t already, read part one of Indecent Proposals here, or none of this post will make sense. All caught up? Ok, good.
He replied saying he was busy traveling for a few weeks. Then no other communication for two weeks, until I get the email below (in green). Apparently, he’d not been traveling as he said in his previous email. When reading his next email, with his thinly-veiled indecent proposal, keep in mind we have had one phone conversation and we have not met.
Dear Blond Lemming,
Good morning. I hope that you had a fabulous holiday weekend.
Are you making the move to (town to get away from the ex Speck) this week?
I’ve been catching up with friends and trying to get my back yard ready for a 3 week trip. I’m planning to leave this weekend, hopefully Saturday, to go to a conference in OH and then spend 2 weeks in MI. Then I’ll drive up through the Upper Peninsula and back down through WI. Should be a lovely time for a trip. I’m busy lining up appointments and visits now.
Sorry we haven’t met yet. We’ll have time to talk in the car if you want to ride along;-) I’m taking my friend’s kayak and am especially looking forward to the shores and inlets of Lake Superior. I’ll be passing through a lot of areas where wealthy Chicagoans have their summer homes. They might be good regions for your sales? Ready for an adventure?
Or a cup of coffee, of course;-)
WTF? I’m thinking the “wander” portion of his signature was a typo on his part. And he wasn’t paying a bit of attention during our call if he thinks I sell door-to-door products, or anything, to homeowners.
The move to (town to get away from the ex Speck) was scheduled for a week ago. But, it has been canceled. The manager couldn’t get me in.
Hmm, that’s an interesting proposal: Go on a several-weeks-long road trip with a male stranger I met on the internet. Do you get many takers? LOL
I’m flattered, but something must’ve been lost in translation. It appears you’ve got a mistaken impression of the kind of woman I am. We’re looking for different types of relationships.
Thanks anyway, but I’ll have to decline. 🙂
Have a safe trip!
I didn’t bother to reply to his follow-up (read: back-peddling) email. Blond Lemming says, “Enough of this shit.”
After the fiasco of Speck, the indecent proposals, and no better options on the horizon, with synchronous timing like only the Universe can provide, I received an invitation for a free coaching session with professional relationship coach Valerie Greene.
Holy Catharsis, Batman! She is good! One call gave me a great deal of insight, things I never considered. I got a list of things to look for, and questions to ask potential mates to tell what kind of person they are – with one or two simple sentences! No more guessing what kind of man he might be when the chips are down. No more wondering if he has integrity, and good character.
Anyhoo, I’ve been relaying my dating dilemma’s to her and she has given some great feedback about the guys mentioned in the last few posts. She also quickly ruled out a couple more just by what they said to me over the phone or text. I wish I’d worked with her years ago!
Many of my fellow self-improvement friends know how much work we do, and have done. But just one call moved me ahead by leaps and bounds in the relationship and self-discovery arenas! If you want to check her out, she is offering a free 60-90 minute coaching session to everyone who wants to learn more about their relationships. She works with couples (either individually or together – you don’t both have to be on the call), and with singles like me.
For info about the free coaching call and how she can help you have better relationships (of all types!), go to Valerie’s website. No spam, no high-pressure sell. Seriously.
Enough of the dating stuff. We will now resume our regularly scheduled posts about weird, wacky, and wonderful goofy roadside attractions, which I lovingly call cheezy Americana.
