I thought the story was over but I figured more people wanted to hear more so here we go.
The first few weeks after we started “dating” went off well. We still talked normally, except now we would talk more on the phone verse internet. So much so, a lot of times my phone battery would die midway in our conversations. Of course I got in “trouble” for it. We would webcam a lot too and it was weird at first. Before our first webcam session this girl did not have a face, she was just a screenname, a voice. All I could see of her were stills from facebook pictures. But I didn’t realize or remember how cute her smile was, or how kind her eyes were, or just amazingly hot she was. Honestly, I stunned that I got a girl that hot.
But I was still hesitant about the relationship working out. It was long distance and quite frankly I did not put any bets on a long distance relationship working out. In fact, neither did she. She kept bringing up that we keep the relationship open, so I were to find anyone in my area, I could leave her easily with not hard feelings. But I am not that type of person, I believed in monogamous relationships and I simply refused it. And it was a good decision to make. Over the course of time of phone and webcam conversations, I grew a deep attraction to this woman. And it was deep emotional attraction with the physical aspect not a major factor. So thus I decided it was time to see her. After my midterms and the start of fall break I decided to drive to Michigan to see her.
Naturally I was hesitant of meeting her, that I did not fit her standards. I was paranoid at times; especially around the time I left I read an article about genetics playing a role in mating, how women can smell someone who is genetically healthy or compatible. I was worrisome that my pheromones did not match her taste. But at the same time I was optimistic. I challenged her that she won’t be able to wait 5 seconds before she kissed me. She said she could wait all day, and I bet her she couldn’t.
After I was done with my last midterm (which was at 8am), I hopped in my car and drove the 6 hours by myself to Michigan. As I was nearing her place, I got lost and I called her up for help. Every turn that got me closer, I could hear the excitement in her voice grow. As I pulled up in front of her apartment, she was waiting out, all dressed up with the biggest smile on her face. I stepped out of the car and at first she tried to walk up to me cool and relaxed. But after a half a second she forgot about her plan ran up and planted a big wet kiss on my lips. She tasted good and all of the worries and paranoia I had went away with that kiss.
We went inside where I unpacked my things, relaxed a bit, while she talked and talked about anything and everything. And I know this superficial to say this, but I was speechless because she looked extremely beautiful that day and I felt like all I could do was stare at her for the rest of my life. In mid sentence though, she grab my hand and was like, let’s go eat its late. We went out to this nice arab restaurant, and I ordered a lamb kabob. Apparently that was test to see how “manly” I was. I passed.
