I'm just pleased she got this attention, and moreso than she didn't throw out some judegemental comment about "immoral" or something similar.
I met her for lunch yesterday, and she tells me that this guy has emailled her again, asking her out. She said she replied with agreeing to a coffee date next week.
She said "hes playing a game", so I said "you can play, too just have fun with it".
I get the feeling shes testing to see if I mind. Its a good test for me, too, because I didnt feel jealousy at all, Im just pleased for her.
How nice to have a 20 something after you when you're nearly 40? I see it as her reward for all her running, and for achieving her goal weight with weight watchers.
