Just over 24 hours ago I told him how I felt. And, I admit, part of me would have loved him to say "YES!" but at the same time it just feels so good to have it out in the open regardless of the outcome. And, I'm in no rush. It's not like I'd take him to bed right away even if he did say yes. Sorry, I'm just not that kinda girl.
In many ways this is all so new for me. I'm falling for someone, I have multiple people to discuss it with, who actually give a shit, he likes me (to what degree I don't know but...), and I'm not completely stressed over it. Because, yes and no both have upsides, and I'm relatively confident that, no matter what, we will still remain friends. Also, for the first time in my life I told a boy I liked him and I didn't get shot down in flames. Is that cool or what?
You know, sometimes this life rocks. And the complications and difficulties along the way along the way just make it that much more interesting.
