So, earlier tonight I gathered with some of my friends to catch up on everthing that's been going on since Christmas. Most of us are back in Miami to bring in the new year! We love bringing in the new year in Miami!
Well, I have to tell you that we laughed at one of my friends and his missed opportunity because we all told him it was going to happen and he didn't want to listen to us. He should have listened!
You see, sometime around the end of November/beginning of December he confessed to having a crush on a girl he knows that none of us have met yet. He said that she got divorced about a year ago and around the time he admitted his crush to us, she announced that she was ready to give dating a try again.
We all encouraged him to ask her out, but he listed his reasons for waiting until after the new year. Now, you have to keep in mind that while we all laughed at him; he was completely serious.
He said that asking someone out for the first time that close to Christmas was a bad idea because if it works out you're stuck with a new relationship for Christmas. That means you're faced with deciding what kind of present to give the person ~ You don't want to buy something that says you're too serious but you also don't want to buy something that says it's just casual when you don't really know where you stand because it's a new relationship.
Then you're also forced to decide how much of the holidays you spend together. It's too soon to take someone home to meet the family, but do you really want to just ignore them for a week or so. And what happens if they invite you to their family gathering? If you go or don't go, you may be sending a message about how you feel when you really don't know how you feel cause you've really only had a couple of date.
Then, if you survive Christmas, you're stuck with new years eve a week later. Do you bring in the new year with this person? If you spend Christmas together do you have to spend new years eve together? And since it's a new relationship do you really want to bring in the new year together and what kind of message are you sending if you do or if you don't?
Seriously, we tried to tell him that it was just a dinner invitation, but this is where his mind went.
Well, now it turns out that the girl will be at the same new years eve get together that he's going to attend and she will be with a date. A date that asked her out for the first time around the end of November/beginning of December.
lol! We shouldn't have laughed, but we did and I'm kind of still laughing!
Let this be a lesson to all of you guys ~ (Even though I seriously don't think I have many guy readers) ! Don't miss an opportunity! If you're crushing on someone, ask them out! Especially if you have to be rich and/or good looking and I'm the someone you're crushing on! lol!
