2 drunken nights ago I hung out with her and two guys one of which I thought was really cute and sweet. I knew he had a girlfriend and I didn’t want to say anything that would ruin our friendship. The whole night our little group is cracking up and having so much fun. I noticed, as the night went on and several beers later he is sitting on a bench next to me and gets closer and closer to where our arms and legs brush up against each other as we laugh wholeheartedly. He continues to compliment me about how much he loves my hair. I do my drunken thing when I start speaking in Spanish and he replies to me and I instantly fall in a hole.
As our group dwindles down we each go home and I, drunk in my car fathom the courage to text him and tell him how cute he is. Now this was the second time I had tried to tell him and I would write out the message and tell myself it’s not the right thing to do but this time around I was more drunk than before.
I got home and fell asleep not realizing I had actually sent the message. So I wake up and see that there are 7 messages on my phone. As I begin to read what I had sent him I was ready for embarrassment to come but…his reply was simply this.
"I think you’re very cute as well and while I do have a girlfriend, our relationship is hanging on by a string. I need to figure out how this is going to play out before I make any moves. Above all i really like you as a person a lot and think we should continue to hang out…thanks for coming out tonight I had a blast"
My heart stopped. To think someone I like, actually likes me for who I am is a kind of rarity. While I will try to not hold my breath, it’s still an amazing feeling when someone responds like this. It’s nice to feel liked, when you’ve been passed up for so many years.
