I found Lillian already seated. There was a match review on TV, involving Man U. I took time recollecting myself as I watched it. So I asked which English team she supports and she said Arsenal. As we kept chatting, I asked if she would accept to be my friend. She said she would.
â€œItâ€™s okay but you have to be patient as we study each other.â€ I asked for her contact but she said she did not have a phone. I directed her to my work place and even invited her to be our client whenever she needs hair treatment. She pledged to be coming.
â€œAre you married?â€ she asked.
â€œIâ€™m just searching but itâ€™s not yet the right time for me to get married,â€ I responded.
â€œWhen is it the right time? At your age, you should get a woman,â€ she advised. â€œGetting one isnâ€™t the issue; itâ€™s getting the right one,â€ I said.
â€œWhat kind of woman is â€˜the right oneâ€™?â€ she asked. â€œItâ€™s not easy to get one but you look like one,â€ I told her. Since she was tipsy, I asked her to come to my place but she said she would not do that on the first date.
What struck you about the lady?
Sheâ€™s beautiful and portable.
Will you continue pursuing her?
Yes. I have seen she is a serious person.
How do you tell a serious lady?
As you talk to her, trying to woo her, she gives you hard time. I tried to lure her to my place but despite being drunk she refused, insisting on meeting me the next day.
She does not have a phone, how will you access her?
I am planning to buy her one the next time we meet so that I can talk to her anytime.
Where does she live?Nakulabye
Occupation: Shop attendant
Interests: Dancing, watching movies
Favourite Film: Titanic
What do people find attractive about you?
What would you love your mystery dream date be?
Self respecting and willing to be there for me
What makes you laugh?
Any thing funny
He found me having a beer. At first I was nervous but he sat down quietly and proceeded to watch a soccer match on TV. He said he had come late because he was committed at work. When the waitress came, he asked for V&A.
He asked whether I was single and I told him I was. â€œYouâ€™re the kind of girl Iâ€™ve been looking for, model-like,â€ he said.
â€œYou may have liked me but I have to study you to ascertain if youâ€™re the right man for me,â€ I said.
I excused myself to the ladies. When I came back, he said my bum was wow. â€œBut are you sure of what youâ€™re saying?â€ I asked. â€œYouâ€™ve just met me and youâ€™re heaping praises on me. Youâ€™re a liar.â€
â€œNo. Honestly, I love you,â€ he said.
The more he drank, the louder he talked. I told him he was talking too much but he would not listen. When Man U scored, he jumped and yelled. When I complained, he apologised.
He asked for a kiss. When I refused, he said, â€œIt seems you donâ€™t like me.â€
I said, â€œI liked you the first time I saw you because you looked responsible.â€
He said he was only behaving that way because of excitement. He again asked for a kiss saying every one was paying attention to the TV. â€œItâ€™s not about people seeing us; I just donâ€™t want.â€
Though he wanted to take me to Club Silk, I insisted on leaving.
What did you enjoy most?
His company; he began well and was a nice guy.
What happened later?
He annoyed me by becoming a nuisance when he was drunk.
What is it you liked in him?
He was smart and handsome. Besides, since I am a quiet person, when I meet a chatty person, he makes it easier for me.
Any hope of meeting him again?
Yes. By the way, he can make a good friend. I called him yesterday and he said he was looking forward to meeting me.
