We traded a few messages around lunch time which I started. Then in the evening he messaged to say sorry his day had been really crazy and asked about mine. Then he asked about Mom’s operation (which is tomorrow) and wished me luck. She needs it more than me but the intention is good. He’s promised to chat tomorrow.
Such a kind and thoughtful gesture. If only we had managed a date or two recently I’m sure I would be happy with how things are going.
