Do I believe in love at first sight? I never used to. But now I’m not so sure. A guy once asked me to describe my feelings for him in one word. I was caught TOTALLY caught off guard because it came up out of nowhere in the middle of a completely unrelated conversation. I mean… who does that? Come on, really? I paused for a long time. I didn’t know what to answer. Well… I did, I just didn’t want to pop out with the first thing that came to my mind. I really didn’t know how to explain how I was feeling at the time. To be honest, the first word that came to mind was love… but I wasn’t going to say that, I just couldn’t justify the thought. Besides… what am I crazy?

I met a guy, who made me happy every time we spend together, I laughed so hard I could pee in my pants. I looked forward to seeing him every day and wanted to know more and more about him… first as friends (of course) but with the hope of it becoming something more than just
