Still no reply from Mark, so I’ve decided to pull out another option: I’ve messaged Sarah to ask if she could arrange a dinner at her place and make sure he’s invited. (And me too!) She replied asking if she could promise I’d be dressed the same as last time I went to theirs for dinner (i.e. naked) because then he’d be guaranteed to come along. I said that maybe I shouldn’t look too keen, and the cheeky girl that she is replied with “Is there any such thing as too keen?” She’s quite a minx considering she’s a happily (almost) married woman.
