Single. And Impatient

Call me, dammit!

OK, remember that boy I was confused about earlier this year? Yeah, well he showed back up again in my life. Without a warning, he offered to help edit my honors paper (and I mean, trust me, I was NOT going to say no to someone with decent grammar willingly offering to proof read…I have to bribe my roommates with brownies). And then I have vague recollections of drunk texting him one night (not one of my proudest moments, but occasionally these things happen to the best of us single girls on rough weekends). Whatever, you get the picture. So things continued from there, we hung out a few times, grabbed a late night dinner together twice..same old drill.

EXCEPT here’s the thing. Nothing has progressed since then. We haven’t gone on a date, hooked up, or done anything outside of the friend zone. Granted, I am busy (that might be an understatement), as is he, but still, you would think he would at least be able to find the time to ask me on a legitimate date somewhere (outside of the dining halls preferably) in the last month! I know that he’s interested in me as more than a friend because he asked my best friend if she thought I only liked him as a friend…

Now here is the problem. He is a nice guy, the kind of guy that I would actually date, not just maybe drunkenly hook up with once. He is a nice guy, who knows me and STILL likes me, except he can’t get his sh*t together to make a move. I think I really like this guy. He’s the first boy since my ex to make my heart flutter, make me daydream in class, give me that feeling in my stomach when I see his number pop up on my phone.

Except I am tired of waiting for him to make a move!

I know, I know, it is the 21st century, and girls have just as much of a right to ask out guys as vice versa. Yeah, except that is just not something that I would ever do. I beat boys in soccer games, change my own tire (not quickly, but I do), even command authority in meetings, but that is as far as my feminist independence goes. Call me old fashioned for still believing in the notion of chivalry, but I just would not be comfortable taking control of a relationship and making a really forward move.

The way I see it, if he wants to talk to me, he will. If he doesn’t, well, I don’t want to be clingy, a nuisance, or THAT girl. So for now, I am just going to have to wait, analyze and daydream until he mans up to make his next move. And waiting is something I don’t do well.

Honestly, people wonder why girls don’t fall for nice guys. All I want is for this nice guy to take some intiative, and I would be falling.
