NEWSFLASH! dating is awkward! (hear the sarcasm?!)
It’s awkward b/c there are rules and things you have to follow to make a successful dating situation.
but how do you know when you’re successful?
you can look to the obvious signs like flirty texts, smiling, slightly touching the other person’s leg, saying sweet things, making follow up dates, sweet nothings, blah blah.
but there are less obvious signs that drive a person—okay me—crazy. right now I’m in a situation where I’ve made myself vulnerable to another person (vague I know, but life’s freakin vague sometimes). I’m not sure how he received it. I’m afraid it scared him off.
I’m waiting to see what happens next. Does he call me back for another date or does he let it burn? ball is in his court, and I hate waiting on the other side.
I’m having my own little flashbacks from the island these days.
1. On BART, I notice a Dharma Initiative logo with swans in it’s center on a boys sweatshirt. On the back of the sweatshirt, there’s a giant logo of a plane SNAPPED IN HALF. I felt nostalgic. Then I realized that the person who was wearing it was WALT!
No just kidding. it was not Walt. But it would have been freakin awesome if it was!
2, Mom gave me an old issue of Entertainment Weekly. On the Cover: LIFE AFTER L O S T. I thought to myself, “but really, is there life after l o s t?” I’m sure many of you would say NAY.
If you ain’t up on autobuds, ya need to be. Quick explanation - these 3 blue Toyota Rav 4’s chilling in the same vicinity = autobuds. This is epic cause not only is it the first non-parked/in-motion autobud sighting, but god damn if I don’t see not two, but THREE autobuds in this shot.
