I Met A Hot Guy And Deleted His Number

And I'm proud of myself!

This was on Fire Island, where I was hanging with a friend and became joined by two shrieking fans, who were campy and hilarious.

Just then, a handsome, mixed-race, sort of 30-year-old version of the Rock sauntered out--looking hot--and said he wanted to join us because we seemed more festive than the club he'd been at.

He didn't say much else--he just smiled a lot while keeping his cleavage carefully exposed.

And when it came time for him to go back to the club, he gave me his number.

"We could hang out," Mr. Man suggested in a very silky voice. "It's hard to find people with personalities like you. I'm a producer."

I dutifully recorded the number into my cell phone, feeling intrigued and titillated.

And the second he walked away, I just as resolutely erased it.

I mean, what good could come out of this?

He'd want me to take him to fabulous things and promote his producing gigs.

And then I'd get hooked on him, wondering why he hasn't texted in five minutes.

And then it'd turn out he has some dark secret that makes any kind of friendship impossible.

And then either he'd kill me or I would kill myself.

Or maybe he'd just be nice.

But still, I'm not taking the chance!

Bravo for me.

I stumbled across this randomly and must comment that your whole deleting number story seems foolish and incredibly counter-productive.  Did you really do that?  Come on...

But by deleting his number you blew the chance to blow his back out! Topping a hot Rock look-alike would be at the top of my list, if I was a total super top, like you!

I $u$pect that your in$tinct$ were correct, and thi$ would not have turned out well.

Whatever you choose, it'sallgood.  However, what happened to your comment (I think in your hating sex column) about liking to get it on with strangers?!  Why didn' t you pounce while the iron man was hot?

I would be very happy to take his number off your hands.

I'm always kinda scared of "karma" in those situations...though I'm not "famous" in any sense of the word...meaning "you" (me) wasn't seeking them out, yet they talked to you [hopefully not messy drunk]...the hopeless romantic in me always wins.

BUT!  If they approach me later....[drunk] YOU DON"T HAVE THE NUMBER I GAVE YOU! [last week]....I blithely put it out....case closed...solidly.

I swear Mr. Musto, sometimes you have too much common sense.

The only common thing about you, I hasten to add.

Turn off the phone immediately and take it to a good electronics repair shop specializing in computer software. They might be able to recover any recent deletion. Not that you'd want to use the number, you know. Because it might turn out to be a great adventure, but what if it isn't? But just having the number might be nice.

Get the number back. Set up a sex date before you do anything. Have sex. Don't call him back. I think you got his "number" you may as well take advantage of it!

Very responsible behavior when you're 80+. Any younger than that: it's a shame ;-)!

Oh, come on, call him!! Get his number back somehow and see what happens.

Good for you to spot potential trouble and avoid. Don't want another mess like that "911" queen.

By time he gave me his number, he wasn't a stranger anymore.

P.S. -  and yeah... the "I'm a producer" line blew his chances...totally.
