[Ramblings] A Change in Fortunes

I'm not sure what I did, but whatever it was, I seemed to have done it right. She wants to see me again, or, at least, she says she does. We're going to go around and poke through some shops, maybe have lunch, spend some more time together and maybe get to know each other a little better... I just don't know when. Both of us are working around busy schedules, and that's all right, just calls for a bit of patience. As long as she wants me around, I've got all the time in the world.

As long as I don't die abruptly or something, but I'm fairly certain that won't happen. Knock on wood and all that.

I feel a bit out of place, I'm not going to lie. I'm so far out of my depth that the fish aren't even fish anymore, and I'm nervous as hell... but I'm also happier than I've been in awhile. Even though I'm not naturally a confident person, I feel confident. And a bit scared, because, let's face it, she intimidates me. The situation intimidates me, but I think Meg Cabot put it best when she wrote "Courage is not the absence of fear but rather the judgment that something is more important than fear."

That's about where I'm at now.

One of these days, I'll look back on all of this and laugh, and I know this because I already look back on crap like this and laugh. It never changes, does it?

The only thing I can do is ride the wave and hope I stay on top of it.

You should take her to go play pool, if there's a pool hall around you that isn't too seedy or smoky. Pool is an excellent early date because it takes the pressure off needing to make constant conversation. If you're good at it you can help her out, and if you're bad at it you can both laugh at it.

And don't let her know that you're nervous. Girls are like inkjet printers - they can sense it.
^ And that's okay.

Happy to hear man! Have fun!

Bowling might also be a good option.
