A brief encounter
After a few short encounters with a workman completing tasks at home, I find I cannot get him out of my mind. I am married with kids and am not with a radar out for such things. Very thrown by this. Life is fairly uneventful, I work p/t so not housebound but I am at times lonely. My husband and I are quite detached from each other, more companions than soul mates, not a lot in common, little conversation. So the workman with his friendly attentive interest, lingering looks and stopping tasks to directly focus conversation with me at length was flattering. I really enjoyed the short times together and he seemed to be in no hurry to go to his next appt, or leave for home. Thoughts of him fill my mind, not clearly mapped out ones, I don't know where this can go. He is married too and mentioned her. He will of course know I am married and there are children. Is this just part of the friendly way of workmen to innocently flirt? Am I making more of something here because this chap has shown me attention that I am perhaps lacking? I am not someone to mess about, never have done, but I am filled with thoughts of him. I would say that I am perceptive and felt some connection and was sure he was stealing many glances at me more than he should, and occasionally was pink with embarrassment (showing he was a bit self conscious in my presence). More work is scheduled in the coming weeks and I am worried about my thoughts running away with themselves.
