The Single Life

Haha, life sure is a funny thing. At the rate I'm going, I think I should enter the lotto :P So you know about 2 weeks ago I was wishing for a boy-crush and suddenly 2 boys appeared as hopefuls.

So not too much actually happened. Well that's not entirely true, it kept me entertained for a little while. Boy-Crush and I exchanged a few very tentative, not really about anything emails and then I decided that they probably fell into the "replying just to be polite, waiting to see who gives up first" category and promptly stopped replying and gave up on that idea. He had my contact details and didn't really seem interested. Internet-Dating-Boy and I exchanged longer and longer emails for a few days, became Facebook friends and I haven't had a reply since last Monday. To be fair tho, he is overseas at the moment, so we will wait and see if I hear from him again when he gets back. The strangest part tho, was discovering that Internet-Dating-Boy is my very good friend's @saulkza and @nadgia's new neighbour ... how mad is THAT?

Anyway, back to my story. So yesterday I was wishing for a little sparkle to cheer me up. And I got it! A chatty email from Boy-Crush. Seriously? Don't worry, I was as surprised as you. So yesterday we spent the day exchanging emails again. This morning I'm back to "what the hell do I reply?". These emails are not coming nearly as easy as the ones with Internet-Dating-Boy ... most specifically because they're all very non-committal and vague "so did you watch the soccer" type stuff :P So although each reply has me over-thinking about what to write to keep the conversation flowing, I'm having fun and my mood has definitely lifted :)

Am definitely starting to wonder (having not done this in absolute ages) when it turns from emails into "hey let's go for coffee / get a drink" or something that involves actual face to face conversation?! (which I suspect would be far easier than these emails!)

See, definitely time to play the lotto, the universe is listening! Oooh, and today I'll be booking my trip to Peru :) Slowly getting super excited about that. Have decided that I don't even care if I get an Inca Trail permit or not ... the Lares Trek sounds just as good (in some ways maybe better just because it's not as commercial actually) so have decided to leave it to fate.
