It sort of became a routine, and since I know how people like that need routine and he was nice, I was ok with it. I also needed to be kind as the host and business owner. The man had no charisma – none of the ability to schmooze or charm – he was always very straight and literal. Honestly, it was kind of nice. I had had my share of men trying to charm me and I never took the bait because I didn’t want to get a reputation as the host with the mostest. I figured if the men really were interested in something more than a hookup, they’d return, and they never did. But this man showed up nearly every day to talk to me.
