Last night I put Chloe Jo to bed and then went out onto my balcony to read for a while. My balcony overlooks a swimming pool and there were two guys sitting in pool chairs talking. When I came out one of them asked me if I wanted to go for a "late night swim" to which I responded that I would rather read. The guy then told me that I could put my book in a ziploc bag and swim while reading. They continued to talk to me and he asked me about myself...if I was married, had children, what I do for a living, etc. While I was talking to them I didn't really think much about it. I had seen this guy at the pool all week and knew that he had moved in with a friend because his wife is wanting a divorce and he has a son who is 19 months old. I was telling Russ about this guy (the friend was not near as Chatty McChatterson as this guy was) and what he was talking to me about and Russ said that he was hitting on me. And then I got to thinking. He hangs out at the pool a lot and talks to the girls that sunbathe. He was out there all day yesterday and went out today before 10:00 a.m. and is still there. One part of me thinks that there is no way he was hitting on me, but I haven't paid attention to that kind of stuff in 6 years so maybe I just don't know when it's happening. Then another part of me thinks he is creepy for skulking around the pool all day and talking to the ladies. But isn't that what guys do during the summer? The another "think the best of everyone" part of me thinks he is just lonely because he and his wife decided to get a divorce this week and he is just being friendly.
So my question is what do you guys think?
Is he Creepy McCreeperson who needs to stay away from the pool and my balcony or is he just lonely and trying to make friends? And did he really hit on me or am I just being crazy?
