DATING AFTER A BREAKUP
He tells me about all his dates and shows me photos. OK, I insist on seeing the pictures he had, and they were all lovely looking. Pleasingly, most of them turned out to be crazy. I am impressed by the kindness and understanding he showed these women, but also gobsmacked by the essence of each story.
Men take rejection much harder than women. The Muddy Farmer hadn't got over it five years on, and here again is a guy that is badly affected not only by his wife leaving him, but a lady walking away after a relationship of only a few months. If you are back on the market in your 50s, you are damaged.
Just as I think I have been stood up, a lone chap arrives, clad in a lime-green anorak, looking anxious and slighter in stature than I was expecting. The barman points me out, and Home Boy steps up and greets me confidently with a kiss on the cheek. He's a bit on the skinny side, but not bad at all.
It is very exciting flying from one weeny local airfield to another. Sexy, too, with my date at the helm. We eat at a nice restaurant and I am delivered back before dark (it has to be light for private pilots to land). It's probably one of the most exciting dates of my life. Am I smitten? Well, I'm trying to be.
