Friday night recap
Tonight was a night of interesting late-night phone conversations. I was talking to a friend, who is interested in this girl but seems to be changing his mind after hanging out with her a bit more. I loved what he said: “My dream girl isn’t so dreamy anymore.” Haha…that made me laugh. I know, my reaction sounded so unsympathetic, but I liked how he put it. These things are so hard because you never know what the other person is thinking. You really have to put yourself out there to get to know the other person a little bit more. Then sometimes it doesn’t work out and you get depressed. Man, why can’t He just tell us exactly who we’re supposed to get married to so we don’t have to play these painful games. Ah, but then it takes all the fun and excitement out of dating, of being vulnerable, of telling someone you like them but aren’t sure if they like you back.
It didn’t help for me to talk to him because I’m in a blah sort of state myself. Another friend tried to encourage me by saying, “You should go talk to someone. You’re not normal.” Thanks. But what she meant was, “You’re not your normal self.” I’m glad she finally made that clear because she was not making me feel any better.
Well, on a happier note, Don, over at JesusJournal.com, emailed me and asked me if they could put up my blog as the featured site of the week. Glad to hear that someone out there thinks my ramblings are worth reading. Since this Monday is a holiday, he said he would put it up for 2 weeks instead of the usual 1 so people will have a chance to see it. Good deal.
