Valentines Card

I sent my part-time bloke a Valentines card via an online site and signed it 'From a secret admirer.' He hasn't mentioned it yet and although I have the worlds biggest mouth, I have managed to avoid messaging him to ask him if he got it yet.

I am CERTAIN he has got it, and thinks another woman sent it. grin 🤣 💋 I don't know how long I can bear to leave it before telling him it was from me. Wicked, I know!

Muttley snigger here 🤫

You must keep it up for a bit! grin
Are you planning to ask any leading questions,subtly, of course?

I would love to MissAdventure, but I am as subtle as a brick. I'm dying to though!

How he thinks he's gained a secret admirer in lockdown I don't know. UNLESS he has been online doing dodgy things.

Well, you would think he would have mentioned it by now, if it was a total surprise... suspicious, that's me!

Heh heh heh. I can't decide if he is dim or if I am being a b***h by letting him delude himself. Probably the latter to be honest.

Aw, you could have fun with this. Buy yourself a Valentine card, just put a x in it and display it on your mantelpiece. Next time he comes round / Zooms / whatever, make sure he sees it, smile coyly and thank him for his card...

Well, it's harmless enough, I guess.
Probably given him a spring in his step. smile

Email him and thank him for his card........grin

Ooooo Sarah! The problem is, he could well have sent one. Post is taking ages to get here at the moment.

I do like the idea of him bouncing around all happy at the thought of a new, enthusiastic woman, instead of the grumpy old bag he is stuck with.

I might be missing the point, but why send it ‘from a secret admirer’ and then be wondering whether to message him to ask if he has received it? You might just as well have put ‘Love from Gagajo’ on it.

And you say he is your part time bloke. Perhaps he thinks as he is not full time, he has another ‘part time’ admirer!

Only joking.

Pretty sure he knows it’s from you.

I don't mind if he has an admirer. MA is right, he'd have a lovely spring in his step if he did!

I assumed he'd know it was from me too.

Does he live in another country, GagaJo?

GagaJo Tue 16-Feb-21 09:54:17

He's in the UK. I'm working abroad.

I'm with CG on this one.

Tell him.
