So…I go to a pretty big church and because I’m between boyfriends, every now and then, I’ll look around the church and cutie spot. The church is big, but I’ve been there forever so most of the faces are familiar. Every now and then though I’ll see someone who catches my eye.
A few months ago, I was doing my normal look-around and my eyes landed on a particular guy. He’s cute, tall and obviously Christian. I know nothing else about him but those three things are a *great* start.
I’ve seen him several times at church since then and once at a Masquerade Ball my church put on. I said hi to him for the first time at the ball, but that was about it. I told a girl who knows him that I thought he was cute and she said he was single. (Extra points!) I told her not to mention anything to him and went about my way.
I saw him at church the next day but didn’t get a chance to speak to him. I’m prone to developing crushes on guys I don’t know at all — and I could feel myself starting another one.
Anyway, this morning, I decided I should get up and go workout in my complex. By “workout”, I mean I should walk on the treadmill for a few minutes and catch up on the latest Cosmo magazine (hey! Gotta start somewhere!). So I put on my workout clothes and a headscarf and head outside to get my tennis shoes out of my car. Just as I was getting ready to cut through the walkway and go to the complex’s gym, I saw him. I.Am.Not.Kidding.
My new crush lives one door down from me. Who knew???? I was so shocked, I could barely contain my mouth from falling completely open. I didn’t speak — but I *know* he saw me. He was locking his door from the outside and I immediately nixed the gym idea, jammed my key into my door and ran inside like a rottweiler was after me.
I can’t believe he lives by me! Of ALL places! I don’t know how long he has lived right there (or if he truly lives there). There is a possibility that the apt is his friend’s house or his girlfriend (my source couldve gotten it wrong). But I don’t think so. It’s 8am on a Wednesday morning and he looked like he was headed to school. (He goes to World Harvest Bible College.)
I am shell-shocked. What are the chances? That’s a good conversation starter for me though. I can ask him next time I see him if he lives in my complex.
Wow, I hope I run into him again. And this time I hope I’m not in workout clothes and a bandanna. *sigh*
