High fives all around!
I think that was the longest dry spell I have ever had as an adult (it was self-imposed, but yeah, long time).
He was lovely, and it was easy and fun. He's ten years younger than me, and I can't see it going anywhere, except maybe a casual thing. But he was really sweet.
I didn't think I'd ever be sleeping with a new person again, so that was weird, but I've waited long enough and I didn't freak out or cry on the guy so I'll call that a win.
I texted him with a low key meetup option and haven't heard back, which is fine, I'm not fussed either way.
The only thing I'm mildly concerned about is that I'm using a crappy old phone that can't get picture messages, and I kept getting a warning that someone was trying to send me one. I wouldn't want him to think I was ignoring him.
