Well, I think it's time for another dating life update. I'm not
sure if these would make more or less sense if I did them more
frequently. On the one hand, I don't particularly want the tone of my
site to be too "OMG, she, like, totally looked at me!". On the other
hand, it is pretty important to me and some people still care about
it. So you know what? It's my site, I'm going to write what I want. Of
course, I'll have to remove this one from the facebook feed.
Especially considering that the person I'm going to be talking about
the most definitely sees my facebook updates.
Well, S was fun while she lasted. We went on
several dates during her Christmas break. She was pretty cool to talk
to, even though (maybe partially because) she spent a lot of time
talking about her really crazy family background. It was always
somewhat awkward physically, though - we never seemed to touch each
other. I don't know if that was me or her. At any rate, I kept asking
her out until she told me that she just wanted to be friends. And I
was fine with being friends with her, but I pointed out that she never
even called me - it was always me asking her out. I said that if she
ever wanted to hang out, feel free to give me a call and we could do
something. That was... oh... just over a month ago now. Ladies, I'm
sorry, but if you're going to pull the friend card you have to, well,
actually be a friend.
I actually first met A about a year ago. She's in Abe's
old ward (no, I don't even pretend to protect my roommate's identity).
She was at some party that I went to with Abe. At the time, she was
kind of flirty and so I asked her out. I guess that by the time I
called her, she had hooked up with another guy in her ward. I actually
forgot about all of this and wasn't even sure if I'd actually gotten
around to calling her before - there were a couple other girls from
that timeframe that I met through Abe that also turned me down, so she
didn't really stand out a whole lot at the time.
Fast forward about a year to about a month ago. I went with Abe up
to a fireside in Lynnwood that was combined with the University Wards
and the Halls Lake Ward (Abe's old ward). We were hanging out talking
afterward, and Abe went over to chat with a few girls that he knew
from the area. I joined him and he awkwardly reintroduced us
(something along the lines of "You remember Jo-Pete, don't you?"). The
group of us ended up chatting for another hour or so. We ended the
evening with me walking her to her car on the other side of the
building and said that I'd see her later. She seemed agreeable with
that. Meanwhile, Abe and her friend had been plotting and suggested
that we all go on a double date.
