Can I just talk about last night? And ignore how shallow I am?
Volunteered at an event. I got there, caught the eye of this cute guy, but kept going to check in. And you know what? He was my volunteer partner.
Well, yay 🙂
Let’s call him LA. He was so easy to talk to – we carried easy banter the entire night. We got each other’s number in the first hour.
This guy from his school came up and awkwardly stood by us, and I asked LA why…LA told me that that random guy was into me. Um…okay? But since LA is totally hot and completely nice, I wondered that if he thought other guys were into me for no good reason, did he think I was hot?
And he made this joke – I asked him what he wanted to do (we had some free time), and he responded, “I don’t know, make out for half an hour?” I gave him this ‘come on’ look, and he laughed sheepishly. This is shallow, because I literally met him that night, but I would have been totally down for it.
The night went on. Turns out we have a mutual friend, KD, so he called him up and KD showed, with some other guys – one, PJ, and some others. They were all really, really nice to me.
After we were done volunteering, there were people dancing – we just joined in. Why the heck not?
LA left, and I walked around the town with KD and PJ…after a bit, PJ had to go in a hurry, but he looked me in the eye and said “I’m really sad that we didn’t get to talk tonight, but…” and he went to pull his phone out. I stopped him – he really was in a rush – and he said “Here, I’ll just get your number from KD, and we’ll talk more later.” And I just kind of went along with it – sure…?
KD and I walked a bit more, and he actually opened up to me – about being friendzoned, about being rejected, about how LA apparently made out with his ex, and about moving all over his whole life – nightmares and fears.
Oh, and another thing.
Earlier in the night, the guys had been whispering while I wasn’t looking, and doing that punching each other thing, laughing.
KD told me that PJ was single.
Later, he asked me where WB and I was…I almost told him, but I brushed it off. “We’re just friends,” I said. And we are…
A bit later, he asked if I liked PJ. Just in general. I told him yes, because I really do. PJ seemed so genuine and sincere – he left in an emergency because his friend was in trouble. And from what KD told me, he’s a loyal guy and a great friend to KD – not the type to just ditch him ever. And then he asked me if I would actually text him back. And I said yeah, why not?
And then he got this sneaky face and did this eyebrow thing and I just kind of ignored it.
Guys are such hopeless romantics – EC, WB, ML, and now KD. It’s adorable.
Drove home, got there around midnight…I don’t think my parents know about curfew.
