“Follow Your Inner Moonlight” (Allen Ginsberg)

HE HAD ME AT “Γειά σου”

I met WEB STALKER at a birthday party in Boca Raton, Florida.  He had fled the loud music, as I had, and was standing alone on the wide veranda of a beach-front restaurant, looking out at the moonlit sea.  When he saw me he moved – actually sort of slithered — in my direction.

WEB STALKER is a year younger than I am, and in heels I’m an inch or so taller. He has black eyes, a full head of real hair, and a delightful Greek accent (I am a sucker for accents, as you can see in my PASHA and TV IDOL posts in the Dating Gallery). When he speaks you overlook the fact that he dresses funny.  I can’t say he swept me off my feet, but the description of his yacht in Corfu got my attention.

We had about 10 minutes together before his friend Constantine came and dragged him back inside. He asked for my phone number.  I gave him my business card.  He apologized for having left his in his other jacket.

The next morning WEB STALKER called to say he’d be leaving soon for Athens.  Would I have coffee with him?  We met at a snack shack on the beach, drank stale coffee and ate yesterday’s croissants. He was less fascinating in the daylight. He kept his sunglasses on, so his beautiful eyes were hidden. The accent was still charming, but he really didn’t have much to say, so he told a joke, admired my t-shirt (don’t ask what HE was wearing – OMG), and hinted at sunny days lazing about on the deck of his yacht. 

His continuous smile seemed compelling at the time but in retrospect it seems — well, slimy. When the coffee hour was over and we rose from our chairs, he peered over the sunglasses, winked, kissed my hand, and promised to get in touch from Greece. He was undoubtedly handsome and exotic, and I looked forward to the contact.

    I tend to beleive this to be a beautiful thing. People meet for a reason. Destiny,greeting,and meeting should never be avoided or judged in a negative way. Especially if the desire is there between the two individuals.Besides what else could possibly happen,if it was never able to be serious.To gain a new friendship surpasses all of the above. The materialistic aspect or an accent can never over-power one’s good spirit, mind,and soul!

    Most women looking for men on line want a man who has money and you are just like them. I guess an accent helps in your case, but you are most interested in the yacht.

    I think “didn’t have much to say” should have told you something. Can’t say I admire you for hanging out with this one.

    What is it about women that makes them suckers for accents. It’s like WWII when women fell for men in uniform, no matter how jerky they were

    why are you even blogging about this guy? He sounds like a loser. I hate men who kiss your hand. It’s so phony
