Alright, so here is my story about “mystery girl”. At the beginning of summer I was at the SRWC (Student Recreation and Wellness Center) working out helping one of my guy friends with cardio as my other guy friend was running around the track in the loft. My guy friend who I was helping started peddling the stationary bike so fast it was moving and I laughed, toughed his arm and said “you do know it’s a STATIONARY bike, meaning, you aren’t suppose to move it right?” He pointed to the girl running in front of our guy friend on the track and I’ve never seen him run so quick either. This girl was beyond gorgeous. I had never been so immediately attracted to anyone as I was her. Fast forward a couple months to the start of the Fall semester. I saw this girl everyday (except for Sundays) at the same time at the SRWC. I had never had the guts to ask for her name or anything and finally I got fed up with my friends giving me crap. It took me 2 more months before I got a random burst of courage and got her name. I was so excited! I added her on facebook and we started IMing on there a lot. I gave her my number and told her if she ever wanted to text me she could. To my surprise she ended up texting me 5 minutes after I gave her my number.
We started hanging out at the SRWC everyday playing basketball, and I mean HOURS! On New Years Eve I was suppose to be at 1 bar all night with my friends, but ended up bar hopping to the club where my best friend was. “Mystery girl” is only 20 so she couldn’t go out to the bars but she does work at one and had to work until Bar Close at 2 a.m. I brought in the New Year with my best friend, her friends, and one of my guy friends. She ended up texting me “Happy New Years! Did you get a kiss?” and I replied “No. Sadly there is no one I am interested in kissing” to my surprise she replied “you should come to my bar and I will be your new years kiss.” At this point her and I had been very flirty, she knew I liked girls and I knew she had a daughter. I texted her “lol you just want me to cave and kiss you. I really want iHop! what are you doing after work?” she replied “So what? Maybe I do ;) OMG! iHop sounds so good. I have no plans” I said “Do you want to go with me when you get off?” she replied “Of course :) I’ll text you when I leave.”
We met up about an hour later around 2:15 in the morning at iHop. She had heard about my ‘charm’ before, but she had never actually seen it. In the 3 hours that we were there eating and talking losing track of time, 2 random guys came up to me and asked me out and more had checked me out. She laughed and we joked about her being my first date of the year. She was the best way to bring in the New Year, not even the bars were as fun as talking to her until 5 in the morning.
Her and I have become even closer. We are very flirty still. I still keep turning her down for a kiss despite her efforts, but her and I cuddled for a few hours the other day and I have to admit, the closeness of her body was hard to resist doing anything. My guy friend (who was running behind her) and I told her the other day that she was “mystery girl” and she laughed and said “I’m actually really flattered.” She is curious and keeps telling me she could be bisexual and for me to just act on impulse and kiss her sometime. I don’t know what my hesitation is, other than she is like me in the fact that she is very confident and normally gets what she wants, so I’m not giving her what she wants (i.e., a kiss from me).
She is the best part about the SRWC, besides saying tan, fit, and sexy. Who would of known that a girl I was scared to talk to for months, checked out all the time while working out, and desired, would turn out to be one the most amazing, sweet, intelligent, incredible, and one of the most awesome people in my life? I sure didn’t, but I’m glad that one day I got that confidence to ask for her name, because that one day gave me a new friend and honestly probably changed my life. Who knows, maybe someday I’ll even kiss her ;)
(me, one of my best guy friends, and a girl that is very flirty with me are laying on my guy friends bed. Her and I are the only sober ones)
Drunk Cop Friend:iHop Time!
Me:Seriously? You just text me that 6 times.
Drunk Cop Friend:Yup! And did you notice that I didn't capitalize the i and only the H. Do you know how hard that is to do when you're drunk?
(everyone starts laughing)
Best Guy Friend:(gets off the bed) Alright buddy, let me walk you to your apartment.
Drunk Cop Friend:iHop Time! They have $4.99 endless pancakes.
Drunk Guy Friend:You can't even stand up, how do you expect to order iHop?
Drunk Cop Friend:The wall is helping me. "I'd like $4.99 endless pancakes please!
(everyone laughs harder as me and my girl friend start cuddling on the bed. the boys get our drunk cop friend and start walking him home. her and i are about to kiss and we hear the apartment door open and lock, a few seconds later we turn and look at the bedroom door and it's our drunk cop friend)
Drunk Cop Friend:I showed them! Who's the drunk one now!
(we start laughing so hard we are almost crying)
Sexy Girl I'm Cuddling With:Did you seriously just lock them out? And out of his own apartment?
Drunk Cop Friend:Yeah! I ran up the stairs real quick then back down the other way, and they are so drunk they couldn't catch me. iHop Time!
Me:I think we may have to take him to iHop.
Sexy Girl I'm Cuddling With:I think we might. Ugh! I almost had you kissing me too! You're not going to give in are you?
Sexy Girl I'm Cuddling With:I need to get you drunk and take advantage of you, it's going to happen.
Me:Uh huh, we'll see, but you're right, in time MAYBE.
Drunk Cop Friend:iHop Time!
(eventually I got to the door and let my 2 drunk guy friends back in the apartment and her and I left. there is never a dull moment when hanging out with my boys)
Me:My profile picture cracks me up! (talking about facebook)
Her:Me and you are gonna get married and honeymoon in Italy
Me:Sounds good to me! I told you when we're 23 that I'll take you to Italy, I won't break that promise.
Me:When are we going to realize we belong together?
Her:I have to say in the last couple years, I think out of all the people who have come into my life, you are one of the people who have empacted me the most :)
Me::) Aww. Why do you think that?
Her:I actually was gonna put it on my status but decided to make it more private. But really if you think about it, when I'm depressed you cheer me up, you talk sense into me, you help me, criticize me, and stand by me always.
Me:Honestly, you've been the only consistent girl in my life the past couple years. You drive me insane, but in the best possible way. I haven't left you yet, and that should tell you that I'm never going too.
Her:That's how I feel too, everyone else is in and out...
