Married Man vs. Green Eyes

I have spent the last half hour in a state of absolute shock. The words "God! Oh. My." have been running through my head like crazy, but not in that order and with a different inflection every time.

I had a really good day at work today. Got all of my work done early. There were no bitches (which was fantasmic) and we got to leave early. I stuck my mp3 player on and got to dance in the empty halls like a complete tard. It was so relaxed.

Some of my more astute readers will have known Married Man. Who I suspected wasn't married but didn't know for absolutely sure. Pretty much everyone will know Green Eyes. What you don't know (but you may suspect) is that because I suspected Married Man wasn't actually married, I renamed him.

But I wasn't quite sure. So on top of todays high I decided that today was the day. The day I stopped waiting for a chance and found out for sure. He came down just as we were about to leave. I picked his brain about something and he wandered off to his area to do his thing. I went and got changed. Then I went around to ask him where it would be more private. He was absorbed in his work and wouldn't be able to talk to me. Dammit. I went back to the tearoom to talk to my supervisor (we're working tomorrow morning). And he asked me to turn off some lights back where I had been already. Naturally I jumped at the chance. As I walked past his work area I saw that he was finished doing his thang.

I asked him straight out. No beating around the bush, because I know if I do that I will invariably chicken out.
Me: Are you single?
Him: Am I single?
Me: Yeah.
Him: Yeah.
Me: Do you wanna go out sometime?
Him: Do I wanna go out sometime?
Me: Yeah.
(I just realised he repeated what I said an awful lot)
Him: *Moves closer*
Me: *His body language says 'let her down gently', craaap*
Him: Sure.
Me: Cool...
Him: What did you have in mind?
Me: I dunno, I hadn't thought beyond the asking bit. Do you still have my number?
Him: You texted me about *subject* yesterday?
Me: Yeah, that was me.
Him: Then yes.
Me: Ok. Come up with something and give me a call.
Him: I will.

Hooray for me!

nice work - now what happens?

Everybody - thanks. It takes me 8 months to work up the nerve to ask a guy out. Don't expect to hear too much about him for the next few weeks. I don't want to get all excited because if it doesn't work its going to be too hard.

Pie - I had thought about it but I didn't really know what I wanted, so I had planned to say that if it came up in conversation

Ingsoc and Underhill - the drought isn't over. There are just some clouds forming on the horizon.

Mel - I don't think it will. I'm thinking he might be over the cunty stage in his life.

You are the bravest person I know. Please keep us updated on every lil thing that happens! I love living my dating life vicariously through people that are much braver than me.

Michael C said...

Don't hold your breath waiting for details, readers.
Blogging output is inversely proportional to the square of the amount of sex the blogger is getting. The more she gets, the less she'll blog...

Cazzie!!! said...

Green eyes hey...hmmmm, they are lovely to look into arent they?
Oh, and hooray for you!!

phishez_rule said...

Thanks everybody. It always is up to the guy to do the asking and I didn't see him doing it any time soon, so it was just up to me.

Fingers - that comment seems oddly optimistic. Should I be scared?
