More on the wedding later, but a strange thing happened. A guy I was at university with and haven’t seen in nine years spent all night telling me I looked “a million dollars” and also “a bit like a mermaid”. The Little Mermaid was my favourite as a kid, so I was happy.

I don’t fancy this dude. I don’t fancy anyone right now. And he is basically Ross from Friends. So I told him about the ex to put him off. The heartbreak. The missing him. We chatted about it.

I woke up this morning to a Facebook friend request and an invite to go on a “hot date” next time he’s in London.

It didn’t give me butterflies.

But it made me smile.

    Haha! I swear I was about to write a post with the same title. My story is a bit different. Keep up the good work!

    It might not have given you butterflies but it shows that you haven’t lost it and that you shouldn’t think bad thoughts about yourself like I’ve been doing. You are a desirable person! It might not be the guy you want but that doesn’t stop you being desirable!

    It may not have given you butterflies, but one day someone will. You’re just not ready yet.

    Don’t know how I missed seeing this post over the weekend – weird.
    This is honestly such a good thing, in a couple of ways. You at least know that you’ve still got it goin’ on, and that others are noticing – AND – you also know that you’re strong and level-headed enough not to perhaps, rebound or anything like that. A LOT of people really can’t not rebound for some reason, I guess because loneliness can be so crippling and the company of someone – anyone- else very tempting…
    Very glad to read this post.
