Tonight was a good night. I spent my few recreational hours with Amanda, and I am growing quite fond of her. We got through the underground passage and found the dark woods waypoint after running into some technical difficulties early on. But I managed to remedy the problem and get us playing for an hour or so. But I had to call it quits just now because my alarm will be going off at 6:30 am and I start work an hour after that. Tomorrow, after my shift, I will be headed out to get the tumblers going on the 500 grit, just two weeks away from their final stage. My mom will be back in town just in time to see them finish. Then I’m going out for coffee with Amanda. I’m really excited to see her. We’ve had fun over the last week or so. We exchanged over 200 messages on Match and have been texting each other every day just to see how things are going. Not only is she fun to be around but I’m really attracted to her. She’s cute, and is quite small (5’0″) which is so awesome. I love to be the big guy with the tiny girl. I can cover her up like a big man blanket. Wow. That sounded weird.

Anyway, it’s going to be a fun weekend. After that coffee date, we are going to go see The Battle Of The Five Armies on Sunday. I don’t know what to do about my growing feelings. Should I make the first move and ask her to be my girlfriend? Should I wait? We’ve been talking for 8 days, but I feel like I know her. Granted, there is still a lot of time to discover each other, and I’m not in a hurry to get anywhere. I feel my heart beating in my chest when I think about her, and the ways I’d like to kiss her. I’m pretty passionate, and sometimes that gets me in over my head. Things feel good right now, and I don’t want that feeling to stop. And neither does she, from what I can tell. I don’t know what to do still. I’m defaulting to taking my time and letting things play out naturally.

Have a safe and fun night. I’ll jet you know how it goes.
