When I got the text last Friday night I thought Paddy was going to ask me to lend him money. He has an opportunity to buy a salon and needs another $80k. I didn’t think he was interested in dating. Paddy told me he wanted to set me up with a guy around my age, who likes art, owns a house, has a car and is employed. The guy sounded like a match made in heaven (I’m being sarcastic). Also, Paddy had a date scheduled with London on Saturday night.
Sue called me after Paddy cut and colored her hair on Saturday. She told me Paddy liked me. He really, really liked me. I couldn’t have been more confused. Paddy was trying to set me up with another guy while he dated London. Yet, he had feelings for me. It didn’t make sense. It was beginning to feel like high school drama.
Paddy and I had dinner Sunday night. I talked to Paddy after dinner. Paddy didn’t want money. Paddy wanted to date. Sadly, I didn’t feel the same way. Paddy took it well.
