Dating your friend39s crush
I take many liberties to push my limits and on one particular day, I was definitely feelin’ myself.So there’s this guy, I’ve had a crush on him for YEARS.But for some reason, I’ve remained hopeful and very open to any new potential opportunity. And the biggest issue isn’t getting a date; it’s getting a date.And when you get a QUALITY date, you’d be surprised by the extent I would go to make the date actually happen. I talk a good game, a really good game—especially when it’s on social media or over text.It was on and off, but nonetheless, close to a decade of my adult life went to one person.So, I’m an expert on dating my ex, but when it comes to anyone else, I’m a complete novice.He’s a writer, social activist, business owner and musician.Many of our interests overlap, but because of his legit stardom, I just admired him from afar. (Sometimes I forget I’m not from NYC.) I became a fan of his because of his poetry, but he is no starving artist, let me tell you!
I’ve basically resolved in my mind that unless I am fortunate enough to find myself in an arranged marriage, this may never happen.
We work out of three different offices, but I had gone to one of our other offices and was helping out with some of the work of another coordinator because she was out sick with the flu! That night, I started my own self-medicating remedies to get better. I should have stayed home, and that became very apparent when I was trying to work while quietly dying.
I basically took every item in my medicine cabinet until I began to feel less sick. I had taken two different types of vitamins, cold medicine, flu medicine, anti-nausea medicine; I was drinking apple juice and eating only crackers and Jell-O.
That same night, I was going to dinner with a youth group I volunteer with.
I was having a great time, but out of nowhere when we were heading home, I started to feel like crap. All I could think was, I was so afraid, but then it dawned on me: There has been a flu that has been going around my company for almost two months now. I tried not to panic, I just knew I had less than two days to get better. This was a real shot at a quality guy and come hell or high water, I was going to be there.
