|All told, it was a good date. As is rather typical when I take a girl skating, I fell several more times than she did. Not that she was a good skater, but that I tend to try to do more than skate in circles. After we left the ice rink, I asked if she'd like to go for dessert and she mentioned that she hadn't eaten dinner. So I took her to Taco Bell and then Village Inn for pie.
As is rather typical when I take a girl on a date, I think I fell a lot more than she did. I'm a hopeless helpless romantic, and she's cute and easy to talk with. This evening, I went over to the apartment (I'm friends with the entire apartment). They were watching a movie and invited me to join. She was sitting on the other couch and was consistently flirting with the guy sitting next to her. Their hug good night seemed just a little bit more than a friendly good bye.
Once again, I am the "flower boy." I'm that sweet, thoughtful kid that brings treats and surprises. I don't give anything grudgingly, even if my over-reactive senses are proven to be correct. However, it's still as annoying as ever that I hear girls wishing for a romantic, generous guy, yet they ignore the one right in front of them.
Girls don't want a romantic. They want the unattainable.
