I am a Dork. With a capital D.

There is a guy who lives somewhere in my neighborhood. I see him around sometimes, and he rides the bus. I see him in the evenings usually. Over the past couple months, we have started chatting. I'm not going to lie. He's H-O-T hot. Smart, funny, nice, hot. Oh, and I'm 60-73% sure he's gay. Given my long and sordid history of falling madly in love with gay men...Well, never mind. I'll save that for a good therapist.

Anyway...I haven't seen him in the past couple weeks because of my work schedule. He got on the bus tonight and was about to sit a couple seats in front of me when he saw me, looked happy to see me and proceeded to sit down behind me. He starts talking to me and what happens? I feel like I'm going to vomit and can't think of ANYTHING to say.

I need to have an exorcism of my inner 7th grader. Quick.

Anyone still wondering why I'm thirty-cough cough cough years old and still single?

oh Meg! I can only laugh. I STILL do this. Yes, I've been married for 13 years and if a hot guy so much as looks at me (like that happens when my 5 kids are trailing me but every now and then I DO get out without them) I turn beat red and stutter. SO ATTRACTIVE! And hell - I'm not even in the market.
Best of luck with that sweetie - maybe you can keep a small flask of whiskey in your pocket and discreetly take a drink next time you see him? I am sure people flirt more successfully in bars is because the alcohol smooths over these rough spots

Yeah, This is exactly why I am all for arranged marriages. Clearly I am incapable of handling this on my own. *sigh*
