My thoughts (even though you didn't ask for them):
I relate to this more than I would like...one of my many concerns/insecurities is that I'm super boring... I tend to freeze up on people in person...something about being paid attention to that scares me and it's never more obvious people are paying attention than in person.
Who wouldn't get the chocolate chip pancakes? Honestly...("You're not getting the chocolate chip pancakes, are you?" Um, hell yes, I am.), that was so very him, so I was pretty amused.
This is why I want to take my future boy to see my grandparents' houses. And my college town. And my home in Alaska, if I end up with a different future boy than the one I want.One of the coolest things about him coming to AZ was I finally, finally got to show someone things that were, in their way, important in my life.
Squee!!!I had, probably, the sweetest moment I've ever had with a guy. We ended up going to the Saguaro National Park and making a very short hike up to a nice vantage point, and got to see the sunset. It was beautiful; cacti everywhere and the green shrub vegetation throughout made it look like the desert was carpeted, there were these perfect clouds that caught the light in just the right way to make them look lit up, blues and oranges and some red in the sky, and this boy I like so very much with his head in my lap, so I could play with his stubble. I don't know what it is about his face that I like so much (for these purposes) but my hand was very happy cupping his jaw or running a finger from near his ear to chin and back again.
Your rational person is very smart. But yea...definitely have been there.there's the teeny tiny nugget of rational person in me that thinks he is talking to me and visiting me and interested in me and who gives a s*** if it makes sense to me (it doesn't, not even a little bit), it is what it is and I should just enjoy it as much as I can.
SQUEEEEE!!!I didn't want him to go or I didn't want to have to stay. He smells nice and is nice to cuddle with and talk to and just silently be around, so it sucks he has to live so far away.
