So, I've been seeing this girl I used to go to high school with. We have a class together at UAB. I had a thing for her back in high school, but I never did anything about it. I mentioned it to her one day and I guess it interested her and she started thinking of me as more than a friend.
Make a long story short she broke up with her boyfriend of (on again/off again) six years and now we are dating. It's weird, because she is coming out of such a long, serious relationship and she wants to get close to me, but she keeps pulling back. She doesn't want to, but a lot it going on in her head.
It's complicated, and I'm just trying to give her the time she needs. She says she wants to be closer to me, and I want to be closer to her but it's just going to take time. And that's a good thing. I'm in no rush.
Fact is, things are pretty serious between us. We have a lot of fun together, and like being around each other. She's great to me, and I try to treat her as good as she does me. Nothing can ever be easy, but what's new?
Now I just need to get some sleep. I don't want to go to work tonight, as usual. At least it is my Friday night, and I just got paid. I'm looking forward to my weekend. I've got some nice plans for me and my new girl.
