Day 314

Today was an interesting day. I think the term...when it rains, it pours...would apply to the past week or so. And no, I'm not talking about actual rain. ha I had the most enlightening (and real) conversation with a co-worker when I left work tonight. He is my "brother" I never wanted. ;) We grew up going to the same church and he's known me since I was born, he's about 10 years older than me. We joke around all the time and give each other a hard time. I mentioned something to him at work today which of course needed a bigger discussion than we could have at work, so as I was headed home, my phone rang...it was my "bro." I am so glad we had the discussion and yet I'm utterly flabbergasted. It takes a lot to render me speechless and I still feel like my brain is mush! I can't wrap my brain around it.

Suffice it to say that when one guy is interested, at least 1 more will be. When no one is interested, it is a barren desert. That's the honest truth!

Last week AFTER my date night, a different co-worker (not my bro) popped into the office and nonchalantly asked me out. I am amazed that I was able to keep my mouth from gaping open! I mean....WOW. It's not that he's not a nice guy. He seems to be. I don't honestly know much about him (yeah, yeah...says the HR girl) because he's so darn quiet. He has a great smile and he's a cute guy. I think I am mostly shocked because I don't feel like he knows much about me (he's maybe said 10 words to me since he started in October) and he's not really the type of guy I'd normally date (which is good, right?) and I don't consider myself to be his type. Apparently he told my "bro" that he was interested in going out with me, but that message never made it to me because bro has always joked that I should go after this guy because we're both single and I always denied it saying I'd never date someone I worked with. The guy who asked me out doesn't know about any of that other scenario...or even that I've gone on a date with someone else (though it's far from exclusive). WHAT DO I DO?? If we didn't work together, I'd probably say yes to a date just to see if we had anything in common. Working together (although we don't really...I'm in the office on 1st shift and he's in the plant and will be on 2nd shift coming up in a few weeks) poses a new dynamic. Now the date-asker has taken it upon himself to find reasons to come into the office to "see" me. Not talk to me, but look at me...be in the same room as me. When I walk out into the plant, I feel like I'm being watched (because I am!). It's like he has a radar on me. hahaha This is so insane. Am I making too much out of this?!? AAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH

I guess I should back up and say that I glossed over not being available last weekend because I had weekend plans at the Super Bowl Village and then the Purdue basketball game. Talking to my bro today, he told me even more to the previous knowledge of date-asker wanting to ask me out....he told my bro today that he thought I looked really cute and if he had the balls, he'd go in the office and find a reason to talk to me! EEK! So now I KNOW he's finding reasons to come into the office, even though he hasn't found the courage to ask me out again or talk to me since asking me out originally, I know it's only a matter of time until he does. I feel like the clock is ticking and I need to decide what to do before then. HELP! You can email me (most of you have my email) or message me here or send me a tweet or text me. I mean, I need some serious consultation on this matter! ha

Coincidentally, I did feel cute today....I was wearing another of my new purchases from the weekend. I bought this cute top (in 2 different colors) from Lane Bryant - in the SMALLEST size I've ever gotten there!! A 14/16. I am stoked. :) Sorry it's not a great picture (why can't I look as good in pics as real life??), but I do love the shirt.

  2. I think you should go for it! :) You never know.. I met my Mr. Right right after I swore off guys for good. He could very well be yours!

    (And if it doesn't work out, he is going to feel more awkward around you than you will around him.. so it'll be fine! ;)
