I’ve been keeping my secret crush hush hush because I really didn’t know what would come out of it in the long run. We met on OkC (where else) and his profile pics were so hot. Tan, blonde, muscles. Need I say more? Small problem however, did I mention he lives in Indiana? So what’s a girl to do. Well I did what most would. I told myself it was unrealistic and to move on. He initially was my funny comic relief friend to chat with during the week. He would send me funny pics or say things that put me in the friend zone just a little which was totally fine. He would make jokes like, so when are you coming to visit me? Guy talk that I’m used to hearing. They always want YOU to do something for them. Give me a massage. Make me dinner. Etc etc etc.
Then everything changed one day. We were exchanging our normal hello’s and we both started being extra flirtatious. He’s a good looking guy, I’d say I’m also equally as good looking so pics were exchanged. The wow factor is there, but again he lives in another state. But it was fun and entertaining so we kept up the flirtation. It feels very sexual at this point but it’s just for fun. Well until I suggested possibly meeting in a sunny location like San Diego. Win win for both of us, little vaca and time spent with one another. Even typing that sounds crazy, your going to spend all weekend with some guy you barely know? Not smart. But I don’t care.
We are talking now throughout the day and well into the night. I tell him I have a few more dates but was planning on turning off my acct which he said he would also do (pinkie swear as he called it). Then he asks me, as cheesy as this sounds, to be his Ok Cupid long distance girlfriend. I blush when I read his text. Even if it was a semi joke it still meant the world to me. I accepted of course. Being slightly buzzed this morning after my horrible date I decide to call him. We had yet to talk on the phone and I was scared. Here’s why: guys can be awkward on the phone for one and two, you finally hear their voice. I can’t tell you how many times I pegged a guy to be a certain way and he opens his mouth and he has a slight gay lisp or a feminine voice or a total surfer or frat guy. Shoot me now. Can’t stand that! So I was immediately shocked to learn his voice is exactly as I pictured it. The way he talks is like his texts. Very witty, intelligent and lots of laughs. I was impressed. We talked for AN HOUR. Thats unheard of and it didn’t feel like we were. So natural and the flow was smooth. After we hung up we knew this spark was more than anything we’d experienced in a very long time. He said to me today that he’s never talked to a girl this much and couldn’t keep his mind off me. He finds me incredibly smart and sexy and likewise for me. Another thing that came up was the fact the reason he reached out to me wasn’t just because he thought I was cute. He was planning to find a job here in Seattle! Talk about the impossible turning into the possible. This just came out of nowhere!
So now we are both so head over heels for one another after today. I have no concerns for wondering if we are on the same page, I know he really wants to be with me. It’s so evident and he shows it very frequently. We are planning our San Diego trip to be in early May and it can’t come soon enough.
We found out our birthdays are just 6 days from one another too. Totally random but kind of cute.
