Bit of a vent .. or maybe just airing something out.
Okay, the guy that moved my mare for me last week.... he and I have been acquainted for years. See each other at the feed store, church, playdays, gas station, etc. Years. We always hug and exchange hellos and howya doins.
I've always thought he was nice .. he's older than me (60s I'm guessing) .. Always involved with horses somehow, at auctions, playdays, everything.
Well, he calls me when he's ready to go get my mare to tell me he's around the corner with the trailer. Then he asks me if I'm wearing something sexy.
I said "Uh NO" .. he says "Too bad. You know I've always thought you were sexy" (which I'm not) "I've always had a thing for you"
I replied "Uh, I'll see you in a few minutes"
Got in the truck and he leans over and kisses me.. on the cheek after I turn my head. Then he rides down the road with his hand moving from my arm to my leg as he's talking.
Now, I know that some folks are touchy feely .. I'm a hugger and a toucher, but this was uncomfortable.
He proceeds to tell me about a time (over 20 years ago) when I was riding a Riskey Business son at a local team penning. He thought I was the sexiest thing .. bla bla bla ... He has the hots for me .. bla bla bla ...
I told him "Look, let's just keep this between you and I. I don't think my husband would appreciate you talking to me like this."
"Neither would my wife..." .... nice.
Long story short, I'm stuck with this guy for the next couple hours as we go get the horse and move her. I proceed to talk about church and my husband most of the time.
When I thanked him for moving her for me, he hugged me and wouldn't let me go .. ugh.
I'm soooooo disappointed. I've known this guy for EVER. Now I'm utterly uncomfortable around him.
He's called my phone twice today .. I haven't answered him. The message,
"Hey girl, I was just checking up on you to see how you're doing. Give me a call."
Do guys really think we are flattered by THAT kind of attention?
He's a really good contact to have in the area, but I don't want to have to freakin' dodge him everytime I'm around him... I also don't want to shoot him. Ha.
I guess I just need to be straight with him and tell him that he made me really uncomfortable and ... and what?
