I've always said that I like to get to know someone first before I even have a real date with them. I like meeting someone, slowly developing a sort of "friendship", and then moving into dating or whatever. But I'm getting impatient with this guy!
So I have his number. I texted him. He responded, but I'm not sure he knew it was me so he probably doesn't know he has my number, or didn't save it. A couple of weeks ago, he sent me a friend request on FB. My girlfriend (the one who got his number first) is also friends with him now. I'm not sure if she sent him one, then he sent me one, or he sent one to both of us. Anyway...not a big deal because I don't consider FB a dating place, but at least he maybe sees me as someone he'd like to keep in touch with.
In the meantime, there have been many glances, prolonged eye contact, smiles, etc. exchanged during trivia. He's been telling me goodbye when he leaves, with a little pat on the shoulder. This Thursday, he came over to our table and somehow got on the topic of how he wants kids. (Can we say uterus throbbing??? I might have just taken him right there if I'd had a stronger drink!)
Ugh. I feel like there's progress...we're getting to know each other, talking more, etc....but it's soooo sloooow. Which I guess is what I like. But in the meantime, I've still got those uterus throbs! I've thought about just texting him a random (unnecessary) question one night about something, but I haven't a clue what I'd say. I need to talk to him without my friends around, and that's not going to happen at trivia. My friends are always around!
In the meantime, I wait. And try to ignore the fact that his friends seem like crude jerks!
