Beautiful Disaster

Have you ever met someone for the first time and your first thought was “wow!”

That happened to me on Wednesday. Well no, it happened before I actually met the person we will call TH.

My week was a mess, with organising a terrifying work event that featured a live band. The record company were providing the sound engineer and only the day before the event, I discovered they had forgotten to book one. TH was the only recommendation I had so I cold-called him. This man could not have been more amazing. Incredibly helpful and sweet and even willing to change his plans to allow him to work at the event, I could not wait to meet him.

By 7:30pm on the day of the event the guests were piling in, everything was crazy and I thought my head would burst. I was briefing the door staff on the guest list when in walked the most beautiful man. I instantly knew it was TH. In person he was even more lovely than on the phone and oh so attractive.

The night as a whole was mad but a big success. I had very little time to speak to TH but anytime I asked for his help (I admittedly looked for reasons to talk to him) he was more than happy to help and so his manner was so calming and sweet.

The following day I sent him an email providing him with invoice details and to say thank you. Rather than returning my email, he sent me a text saying what a pleasure it was to meet me and that he hopes we see each other again.

This couldn’t be more of a disaster… Judging by my track record, I now have approximately two weeks before he never speaks to me again.

    Funny. Too funny. I think (and I say 'think' here because I am far from an expert!!!) that you just need to play it by ear, have no expectations and just go with it. Whatever it is. At least you know he can be reliable..and that is a good thing in any case!
