This seems likely.
In related news, I was told last night by a heavily-accented customer that I am “very charming”. He says this with sparkling eyes and I am charmed myself. There’s a sucker born every minute.
As for the much-requested deets on Fantasy Football, I know that my previous post was a tease and I’m sorry. But let’s be honest– so have the last two years. I’m certainly not seeing him exclusively and the jury’s still out on basically everything, but I’d be lying if I said he didn’t make my heart skip a few beats now and then.
Our first date was last Friday and five hours felt like two. He texted me the very next day, which gets a C- from Swingers, but an A+ from yours truly. He came to visit me at work that night and I spent the rest of the night with a smile so wide that my face hurt the next day. Sunday night I stayed the night at his house, but don’t worry– I was chaste as a Catholic schoolgirl.
I’ll let you decide what that means.
I’m not going to gush, but I do want to tell you one quick story that I have already told to literally every person I know, including my third grade teacher and random people on the bus.
I woke up during the night on Sunday to get a drink of water, as I am wont to do. I poured some from the tap and then left the glass on his kitchen counter while I was in the bathroom. When I came back out, I noticed that the water seemed cooler. When I got back to his room, I asked him about it and he said that he heard me getting water from the tap, but he has filtered water in his refrigerator, so he came out and switched it for me.
He treats me better than I’ve been treated in a long, long time and I’m trying not to duct tape my heart directly to my outer sleeve, but it’s hard, y’all. I feel so cared for when I’m around him. He never makes me feel like a bother or an inconvenience and that’s a feeling I’m not used to with men.
Then again, I’ve known the dude a total of one week, so maybe I should give his jerkier qualities time to surface.
I’m planning to keep seeing other people, but that’s hard, too. It feels deceitful even though it isn’t. I don’t know. Thoughts?
It might also be worth mentioning that one of my OkCupid suitors is in his grad program. His grad program that has, like, six people in it. This should not be surprising given that my life is an actual sitcom.
