Thinking I Blew It...
Find a Conversation

I went out for the night to my usual Friday nightspot, but the place was dead, so I left. I took a chance that some friends were at their usual bar, a place I never go alone. They were, that is the only reason I stayed.
About an hour later a guy sits down at the video machine (one that sits on the bar) and asks if I am done playing. (He called me "ma'am", how polite.) I was, and he started playing general trivia. Every once in a while I would lean over the chair between us and give him answers if he didn't know. We would just laugh if either of us was wrong, and would cheer if we were right. We started up a conversation that lasted 3 hours. We talked about everything -traveling, music, religion, sports, family backgrounds - everything.
At about 1 am, the bar got busy, we ended up sitting practially on top of each other. He asked if I wanted to go somewhere else, and we left - ended up back at his place.
At 3 am, I told him I should probably go home...and he said only if I wanted to. I wanted to stay with him, but didn't know if I should - so I left. As I was walking out the door, he kept asking me if I was ok - said I was acting a little strange.
I know his name is John K. I know he is 33. I know where he lives and where he works.
What I don't know is his last name, if I should have gotten his number or left mine, and if I could see him again.
I also know that it was just a one-night stand, but this time I wish something would come of it. I'm 27, have had 6 partners, counting John - have had only 3 one-nighters...and he was the only one who acted like he wanted me to stay the night.
I will be out of town this weekend, so I can't go back to where we met to see him.
I would like to see him again - What should I do? Besides forgetting about him?
