OMG OMG OMG.
My heart is full and my smile is even fuller. Talk about an unexpected turn of events.
The other day whilst at work I got a text from Mr L… Hey! Can I give you a call later tonight? Or could we catch up soon? 🙂
After freaking out and making some joke about being in trouble he sent this (which really got my over-thinking mind buzzing)…It’s no biggy, just easier to explain/ask face to face/ 1v1 🙂. Ummmmm omg. I then came up with three scenarios in my head as to what he could be wanting to say:
- He found out I liked him and he wanted to let me down easy because he was into someone else
- He found out I liked him and he wanted to let me know he was also into me
- He found out I liked him and he wanted to let me know that he didn’t see me as more than a friend
I was really hoping it was number two, but like I’ve always said, I wouldn’t want our friendship ruined, so I braced myself for any of the three. So I arranged to pick him up from work and that way we could chat on the way to my friends house where all my best friends were hanging out that night.
So at 8:30pm I picked him up, he got in the car and we started driving and making small talk. He then blurted out some comment about how you’re supposed to make four minutes of small talk before having a deep and meaningful conversation, then he let me know that we had a minute and thirty seconds left. What I really enjoy about being around him is that he can make me laugh, even when I’m freaking out about what he’s about to say.
After the longest minute and thirty seconds of my life, he started rambling and not making much sense, so I pulled him up on it and said, “look, I’m really not understanding what you’re saying.”
That’s when he said the words I never imagined coming out of his mouth… I see you as more than a friend and I would love to take you out on a date or two, and just see where this can go.
I think I then went into shock and couldn’t find the words, I was still driving so I had to pull over and just breathe. He then kept talking nervously, because I hadn’t said anything.
Finally I said to him, “We are on the same page with a lot of things… and this is no different.”
Then I couldn’t stop smiling and grinning from ear to ear. The best guy that I have ever met, also the guy I have had a crush on for the past 7 months, who also happens to be one of my best friends, just asked me out on a date!!!!!!!!!
That is a night I will never forget.
So, we agreed to go out on a date, and not tell any of our friends, mostly because we don’t want them getting involved, but we are just going to see how it goes and we don’t want to make the group dynamic different.
Okay, so vent over, I wanted you all to know my exciting news, mostly because there’s no one else I can talk to.
