About a boy.

So um. Today was weird. But in a good way.

Remember the guy I mentioned here from my State & Local class?

Well, we hung out again today after class.  We didn't do anything except sit in my lobby and talk and flirt.  It was fun and cute, but at the end became very cute.

I don't even really remember how it happened, so I'll just get to the point:  I told him I'm attracted to him. He told me he's interested in me...but he doesn't have time for a girlfriend.

He's interested. in me

And at first I wondered if it was just some sort of lame way to give a rejection, but then he explained and gave me a hug and it made sense because on top of his full class load, he's in ROTC and that pretty much kicks his butt.  So okay. I get it.

But seriously, y'all.  This has never happened before!  And while I kind of thought he was flirting back and might be interested due to the fact that he came up to me before class and initiated the hang out after, my low self-esteem didn't want to let myself believe it.  Talk about a good surprise. :)

Really, though, most of all, this was like one big giant reminder from God that I'm okay the way that I am and I can't change for anyone.  That He's got a man in store that WILL love me exactly the way that I am.  That if I stay true to myself and follow His will for my life, wonderful things will happen.

Even though I don't foresee anything happening with Nick in the near future, which is totally fine because I also have a lot going on, today has meant a lot.  I'm pretty happy.  Okay, maybe really happy.  And grateful that God has chosen to bless me like this today.

It's been a good day. :)
