So this morning, for some odd reason, I started reading through all me and Lane's old text messages. And I just kept wondering, What happened? And that got me thinking about Bill, and how I don't want to play games. Shit or get off the pot! That's my new motto. So I decided I'm just going to be up front with him, and I sent him a text.
Me: So what's the deal with you?
Bill: What do you mean?
Me: You know like...what's the deal?
Bill: No, I don't know. What are you talking about?
Me: Lol relax! I feel like I've offended you in some way.
Bill: Haha no
Me: Well do you wanna hang out or what?
Bill: Ha I do!
Bill: I'm with my parents right now though
Me: Lol well I didn't mean right now!
Bill: You're being so assertive. I'm totally turned on!
Me: Lmao. I guess I'm just a no nonsense kind of person.
Bill: I love that. I'm all nonsense so we will really balance each other out.
Me: Lol that's good to know.
Bill: What are you up to today?
Me: I'm about to head up to school to do some work in the dark room for a little while. Then who knows?
Bill: I'm going to be at the improv tonight you should come hang!
Me: What's going on at the improv tonight?
Bill: Funny people on stage. 10pm.
Now I'm undecided about going because I don't want this to be another awkward Lane situation. For one, I don't know who else is going to be there, and two, I don't really want our first date, or whatever it is, to be with a bunch of people we both know. Hello? Awkward! So now I don't know how to respond. Should I just ask who else is going? Or would that sound like I'm weighing my options too much? Ugh... There I go over analyzing again.
I have to say though, I'm really surprised at how well my up-front approach worked. I mean, I got the answers I wanted. Now I just need to follow through.
