Something happened a couple days ago that made me remember this thread. This will probably be one of my last posts in it or with this name, since it really isn't relevant any more.
See, I met someone else. Someone who I really, truly can have, right here and now. No waiting, no distances, no being unsure if he wants me or not - it's awesome!
We met in a kind of random way - I was sitting at my computer, IMing a friend of mine I hadn't talked to in a while. All of a sudden, she invited another person to join the conversation. We chatted about gaming and music for a little while. For some reason I thought he was a girl at first - I have no idea why.
A few days later, my friend added him to another conversation; the next day he added me on MSN and as a friend on Facebook.
The next day I was sitting around on the computer after I got off work chatting with him. I was bored out of my mind just sitting there, but didn't feel like going home just yet. So, since he lives in the same city as me, I suggested we meet up. We ended up having a delightful evening; we ate dinner, went to a late-night coffee shop, then wandered around the foggy city, talking about Elizabeth Bathory and getting yelled at by homeless men.
It turned out that we had delightfully similar tastes in books and music. Our senses of humor are also similar - rather crude, silly, and dark. I'd very clearly decided that it wasn't going to be a date before I'd even met him, though. I don't even remember my reasons for deciding that now.
When I went home, after hours and hours of just wandering around and talking to him, he told me he thought I should be his new best friend. Hehehe. We also made plans to meet up and watch a movie at his apartment the next day.
