So there's this girl.
I was good friends with her brother during the early oughts. We'd go out drinking amongst friends and his sister would show up. Never had much time to talk to her ( a twenty something Wheels was a little more frenetic than he is now...Seriously), and she ended up moving to Colorado, she got married and all of that.
Ran into her a few months ago. She was getting over a divorce, I was still hinky about meeting new women because of a failed relationship, etc. We did talk, and I found out we pretty much dig all of the same stuff...Bands, and she's a huge Baseball fan. We exchanged numbers a few weeks ago, but I never called her (I'm far too modern to actually call a chick...Or you can call me chicken).
I ran into her tonight and mentioned that I was gonna drive down to Cincy and catch a game. Her response "Really!?" ( as she kinda clasped her hands together, and I could tell she wanted me to ask her to go) so I asked her to go and she emphatically agreed.
In all of my years, I've never had a girl almost ask me to take her to a game......My question is, how do I actually....ACT?
There's a chance that I can fall into the friend zone. I'm not diametrically opposed to the notion, but I am a batchelor that likes women. She's not into anything serious because of her recent divorce, and I'm totally afraid of commitment at this point because of past relationships, but this situation is brimming with possibilities to say the least. Mutual interests and such is a big deal, dig? Or am I just sooo alien to actually meeting a female that's into the same stuff that I might be reading into it the possiblity of "things"? Or it could actually be something more permanent, and that's the source of my trepidation?
So how do I act?
I figure things are natural, and I'm never nervous around her because I can pretty much say what I want and she LAUGHS at EVERYTHING I say.
Could it be that she digs me, or is it that I'm just this big baffoon that she finds amusing enough to spend time with?
What types of seats would be appropriate? Diamond seats would be overdoing it, but I also don't think she's a bleacher type of girl.
I need help, fellow Baseball fans.
By 11 a.m. tomorrow would be optimal.
Either way, it's really cool having conversations with her, and we're gonna have a good time. It's just the after part that I wonder about.
