I was in the bookstore today, as I am every Monday because I run my autism group there on that day. As I entered, I saw this girl. But, I had just entered and was caught off guard and just getting my thoughts together, so I pretty much said hi to her, but walked away.
I suppose this is an improvement because I actaully spoke to her and she said hi back. I also asked her how she was doing and she offered a response which meant she was receptive, but in the end, I just didn't pursue things further. Nothing was coming to my mind, and I was already walking onwards because I have a very one-track mind. I mean I had a destination I was attempting to reach and despite seeing this lovely person, I just zoomed on ahead. I don't regret that, but I wished I talked to her a little more. She seemed very nice.
So, what does this have to do with Valentine's Day? Well....I don't know. I'm just trying to say that I actually talked to someone today and didn't run away which is often what my instincts tell me to do. I often get very scared when I see a girl that I'm attracted to and think is my "type" i.e. a quirky, smart bookworm of awesomeness.
So, with that said, Valentine's Day falls on a Monday. That is the day I run my autism group at the bookstore. What I think would be really romantic (for me anyway) would be if somehow I met this girl at the bookstore and we ended up talking and found out we had a lot common. We could play Upwards (a variation of Scrabble, but more awesome) and perhaps I would show her the first couple chapters of my book. It would be nice to just walk around the bookstore and get to know someone and have fun playing board games. That would be an interesting way to meet someone, but it would make a great story later on, especially becaues it happened on Valentine's Day.
But, I am fantasizing now, and I know the odds of said story coming true are low, but wouldn't it be something if it did? Though, if that ended up coming true, in a way, that might make this journal entry's existence a little on the weird side. Maybe. I don't know. I'm probably just gettting ahead of myself.
With that said, I'm not expecting anything to happen on Valentine's Day, and I'm not going to try and force anything happen. If somehow, I meet someone, great. If not, that's fine as well. I will be happy either way.
Anyway, I thank all of you for reading today's blog entry and wish all of you a most awesome day of awesomeness and a most wonderful, romantic, and happy Valentine's Day a week from today. :)
