Somewhat physically attractive, nice lips and face but was balding. Good muscular body. I liked his chill attitude more than anything else.

How/where did the hookup BEGIN? What led to it? Was planning involved? Who instigated it? A gig. I got talking to another guy somehow and he was that guy’s friend. No planning involved. We had an interesting conversation, he was a glass artist. He lived in a trendy part of town and invited me to his place. I lived in the suburbs and wanted to see the house so I said yes.

His housemate walked in in the middle of it but the dude sent him away on a walk which I found amusing. I normally would have been a bit embarrassed but I knew I wouldn’t see this dude again so didn’t care.
