Okay, this whole boy/girl thing is waaaay too complicated. To quote the Lethal Weapon Franchise, "I am too old for this shit." And yet, witness the following exchange between Eden and myself as we try to decode the secret language of boys.
me: ok, I'm going to tell you about an exchange with Facebook Guy, and you have to tell me if he's asking me on a date
me: because we are in high school, apparently :)
me: ok, so we were talking about getting together so that I can loan him some dvds and he can loan me his blackberry (long story, but teh awesome, no?) and I asked what would be good. He asked if I was free for lunch this week.
Eden: that's a date meal = date
me: hang on, there's more. So I tell him I busy until Friday. And he asks what time I was thinking because he's going to see a band at this club at 9. What happened to lunch???? first we were talking lunch, and now this! so confused. Is it a flyby? Fishing for dinner? An invite to the club???? What????
Eden: I think so. Ask. say, "Should I wear my dancing shoes?"
me: oooh, that's good!
Me: I said "I dunno...should I wear sneakers or my dancing shoes?"
Eden: does he like you or does he like you like you?
me: I don't know. My friend Ethel put a note in his locker to ask him.
(seriously. She messaged him)
5 minutes later
Me: and there is now an ominous silence from facebook guy
Me: what happened to "hey, would you like to go out with me?" Didn't boys used to do that?
Eden: I did the "do you love me? check yes or no" in 2nd grade
About three hours later, I got this reply from Facebook Guy: I think it would be more of a sneakers type event.
So, any ideas? Did he ask me out? Invite me to the club? And if he did, is it a date? Not a date? Just Friends? Any one of which is cool, I'd just like to know what underwear to wear.
Excuse me while I go buy a YM magazine and try to figure this out.
