OMFGISFH!!! (OMFG-I'm So F-ing Happy!) for those who were wondering...
I just got off the phone with a friend, who I'll call S., who i used to date like a million years ago. anyway, i ran into him at the DMV, we started chatting and he asked for my phone number and address, so that, in his words: "if i wanna contact you, i can..." and as he left, i felt a kind of tug at the heartstrings as only unrequited love can bring...(I've kinda carried a torch for him for a while...in case you couldn't tell...) anyway, i was expecting a call in a day or three, but he called like 1/2 hour after i got home and i just got off the phone with him, he asked how i was doing, and all that jazz, and then;
S.:"i have some thing to ask you..."
S.:"would you be willing to get together with me again?"
me: (before he finishes the question) "yes!"
S. "you do know what i mean by that, right?"
me:" yes, i do"
S.:"i want to date you. not just have an occasional, 'booty-call'... i really want to be with you."
me: "and i, with you... and i'm not going to be with anyone who just wants sex... and you know why..."
S.:"yes, i do. would you like to go out some time this week?"
me: "of course, what day?"
S.:"i have to look at my calender and see which day is busyest, then i'l say 'to hell with this, i need to see jac," and come pick you up then. ok?"
me:" *snickers* "ok..."
S.: "another question: you have two choices; you could be with any one but me, and have a family, or you could be with me and have no kids, which would you choose?"
S.: "you didn't even think about that!"
me: "i didn't need to...it will be you every time...you are the first person i fell in love with and will be the one i'll always love."
S.: "i'm not that special! why do you find me attractive?"
me: "i find you attractive in every way possible; intellectually, physically, spiritually... and you are more than special, you are mine just as i am yours...i hope..."
S.:" yes, you are mine and i am yours, i have to go... i love you, babe*"
me: "i love you, too. bye, darling"
S.: "bye" *click*
(ps, this was the first time he has said 'i love you' spontaniously... i'm really happy, cuz one i have a date, 2, it's with the man of my dreams, and three, HE LOVES ME!!!!!)
