I think I'm floating!

I met someone -

Things with Paul kinda fell apart and it made me reallize that all this time I've been thinking Paul is who I've been looking for but he's not. And no - I'm not saying this just because I met someone else. I've been rethinking this for a long long time. There's a lot about Paul and I that don't mesh. And the biggest thing is - HE'S IN AUSTRALIA! He has asked me to move there - and get married and start a family - but he wants me to do it in 3 - 6 months. I told him I couldn't do that and he wasn't very excited about that and wasn't really willing to wait. The right person would be willing to wait.

So anyway - back to the point of my entry. I met someone!!! I recently moved out of my other apartment and into a one room efficiency up the street. I love it and I LOVE living by myself. I don't have to worry about ANYTHING but me! So the guy who works in the office showed me my apartment when i was wanting to view them and we flirted then. And then, when I signed the lease - and when I've gone in for various things since then we've flirted and then for the last week and a half we've been trying to make it out to the club together to hang out.

Let me tell you how that came about. :oD

I'd gone into the office to pay rent and grab an extra key to my apartment. Josh (the guy) was the only one there and got the key and stuff for me. We made polite conversation and just as I was opening the door, he made on last ditch effort to start a conversation. I'd asked him earlier how he was feeling (he'd been sick for quite some time) so as I was leaving he says "Yeah, I'm feeling much better - better than I have the last couple weeks - I think I might go out this weekend." That weekend happened to be my birthday, so I mentioned that and we starte dtalking about the weekend and plans and he said he was going out Friday night and said - "Well if you go out this weekend - maybe I'll see you here." I said - "yeah that'd be great." We said our goodbyes and I left. Friday I went out, by myself - hoping to bump into him at the club. Of course I didn't. So I went out again Saturday night with friends (Sat Jan 3 at 12:00 midnight I turned 21 - My birthday's the 4th) hoping I'd run into him but I didn't. Then on Monday, I called his office to give him hell about being stood up. But he said he'd just felt worse and worse as the day went on so he didn't go out. But he said he was going out Wednesday (ladies night) and I should go then. So I did - with some friends - but again - we didn't find each other. I called Thursday and he said he was there - but we just missed each other. And he said this weekend (this past weekend) was his birthday (1 week after mine) and he was going out with a bunch of his friends Saturday. So I went - by myself - and FINALLY - we met up with each other. You'd think we'd have found something else besides trying to find each other in a crowded, dark, loud club. But it's all good. We had a blast and danced and talked all night. Most of his family - his sisters, aunts, cousing, uncles and friends were all there - and I met ALL of them. I didn't reallize that my other landlord is his Aunt. His family owns the complex. AND - he's moving to the apartment RIGHT below mine in just a few weeks.

But anyway - as he walked me to my car outside the club we exchanged home/cell numbers and I told him to call me when he got home (he'd been drinking a bit) and he said to make sure I called him the next day. He called that he made it home and said again - to call him the next day. I did - and left him a message but he never called back.

I needed to call the office today anyway to ask about my dishwasher in my apartment and he answered. I gave him a hard time for not calling me back, we talked for a bit and he said he wanted to get together to talk sometime. I said "yeah I'd like that." And he said ok when are you free. And I said well anytime for lunch or after 5:00. So he said "How bout tomorrow after 5:00. I work till 6:00 so why don't I call you when I get off work." I told him that'd be great and he said - "Great - I'll talk to you tomorrow then." We said goodbye and hung up.

I think I'm gonna have a perma-smile for the rest of the day!!! I haven't been this excited about a guy in a VERY long time.
