Yesterday & Valentines

What I didn't say in my last post was that also on Valentines day I'd been considering calling a friend and going out. I got cold feet. This whole dating thing is a new experience for me, and while I'm several years older than my High School days, those days still leave me a bit scarred. There's nothing worse than getting rejected by someone you like. And, so.... Valentines I debated whether or not I should call this person or not, and the cold feet won out.

So, Sunday. My computer broke down. Boo hiss! I bought a new keyboard, loaded software, and restarted. It froze on restart. I restarted a few more times, and it froze over and over again. So, finally, I got tired of battling my computer. Seeing as I was in Glen Burnie and by myself with nothing to do, I decided maybe I should try this friend again. That resulted in an hour long discussion with myself about whether or not I should call him. Eventually, I took a deep breath and gave him a rang.

Turns out it was probably the best thing I could do. He agreed to go out. We went to the movies and dinner, then we hung out at the house afterwards. Generally, we had a great time, and I don't think I laughed so much in such a long time. In fact, I think I slept last night with a smile on my face. I know the many times I woke up there was one there. I even remember bouncing happily a few times before drifting off to bed.

What does this mean for me? I'm not so sure. I'm in a good place and I'm happy right now. That's a good thing. However, I'm not rushing into anything either. My heart still needs to mend properly. Nice and slow. Baby steps. But, it's good to be happy again. And it's good to spend time with someone who can make me laugh.

You could have called me, I was watching kids all night for some friends so that they could spend some time alone ;)

Distraction and laughter are the great healers of broken hearts :)

Re:
Yesyes. Distractions are good things, particularly when they are rather pleasant distractions. :)
