First Phone Conversation

I accepted a guy's request on a matrimonial site. We had our first phone conversation. Within 5 minutes, he told I am weird. When I asked for clarification, he said "brilliant". We continued to talk for 40 minutes. What was on his mind when he said that?

I was taken aback by that remark. He actually even asked me out later in the conversation but it was more in a casual way...like "the weather is going to be pleasant, perhaps you could join me on a walk on the shore". It's been 2 days and he hasn't called or texted me. But the fact that he used the word "weird" and then twisted it is still bugging me.

Reminds me of a compliment from a friend's husband to her.

So, are you saying that he actually gave me a compliment? I don't understand.

Well, it wasnt necessary a compliment, but it certainly could have been.
