Putting Myself Out There

So I like to do stupid things. Or at least things that result in me looking foolish. You be the judge.

This past Thursday I approached the guy I have a crush on. And I asked him out. Even though I was 99.99% sure he was married. Even though I was 99.99% sure what the end result would be. But I decided to go ahead and do it for a few reasons.

  1. I needed to know for sure if he was married.
  2. I wanted to find out if I was imagining the spark that I thought was there.
  3. I wanted to know if I had the balls to ask a guy out.

Well, let’s just say that I learned a lot Thursday morning. He was an absolute gentleman about the whole thing and he is very much the type of man I thought he was. One with integrity. He did tell me that if he wasn’t married, he’d say yes, but that he couldn’t in good conscious go out with another woman. And I knew that there was no way I’d date a married man.

However, the experience made me realize that I am tired of being alone. So, that night, I rejoined a dating site (since meeting people in person is so hard). And while most of the guys messaging me are clearly looking for only ONE THING, there is one guy who is not. We have a date Monday.
