Dating isn’t easy in my body, but the truth is, it’s complicated for most people. I just have the added
frustration fun of waiting for someone to see past my size and gorgeous friends. (Seriously, I have some incredibly pretty friends, but I wouldn’t trade them.)
I spend a lot of time at Starbucks because of the free iced coffee and tea refills and Wi-Fi. I’m there several times a week for meetings, coffee with friends and to work or study before of after class, and lately, I’ve noticed that I’m not the only habitual tea drinker at that particular location.
There’s a guy. He’s tall, dark and incredibly handsome, and he’s been in my line of sight during my last several trips to Starbucks. He tends to show up around the time that I do or a few minutes later, and while I wouldn’t dream of talking to him, I wish I had enough confidence to consider it.
I don’t know the guy. Maybe he’s a jerk, but he seems like the handsome, slightly nerdy type who would know that Eric Cantor was defeated in the Virginia primary earlier this week. (Nerdy, politically aware girls can dream too.)
Since there’s no way that I’d talk to him first, I suppose I’ll just have to drink my coffee in silence, while wondering what his name is or if he likes cupcakes. (If I had to guess, I’d say that he’s not crazy about them, but I could look past that…maybe.)
Have you ever seen someone and felt like you just had to know them? If so, did you act on it?
