While I’m neither clairvoyant nor a middled-aged Black woman of questionable Caribbean descent who constantly tells people to “call me now!”, I do have a flair for the obvious.
(By the way, what is the statute of limitations on actually using Miss Cleo references as a punchline? Has it passed? Has it? Why did I ask that question twice? Why did I ask that question twice? Hold me.)
I’m going to take a shot in the dark here and say that what “he” means when he says he would like to both marry you AND live with you someday is that he’d like it very much if you all would split your bills down the middle and spend an exorbitant amount on a ceremony to show everybody you two REALLY like each other. Now remember, this is just a shot in the dark.
What I will bet is that he doesn’t mean he’d like for you to stop calling him. And he never wants to see you naked again. I’m nearly positive that he doesn’t mean that. But you should probably ask him.
Ladies, every now and then, us guys say exactly what we mean, and mean exactly what we say. Nothing is more straight forward than a straight forward statement. If a man tells you that he would like to marry you, then at that moment, that is exactly how he feels. It isn’t like you asked him and he said yes. Anytime a man offers up statements like that of his own volition, then it is exactly how he feels at that moment.
Sometimes, a duck really is a duck.
