Please feel free to disregard this post as girly obsession.

Okay, so I'm not really the sort of girl to fall into crushes all the time and get obsessed with them. I'm level-headed. The most major crush I had was six and half years ago on one of my now best friends. I've had exactly two what I'd call boyfriends, although one lasted a mere five days and since we were in high school and neither of us could drive, I didn't really go out on dates in either situation. I actually swore off dating for all of high school because I didn't think I could deal with it.

But now I met this guy here in college and I have a major crush on him. I thought at first it was just a "hey he's a nice guy friend" sort of thing. But I keep finding myself wanting to hang out with him, feeling all special when he says nice things about me or walks me back to my dorm at night because it's dark. I actually have spent the last three days going to clubs with him at night. And I had a great time being his DDR partner on Friday night. Between our turns we watched Iron Man on his laptop and I watched him draw. I know that a lot of this just sounds like things that friends would do together, but I keep finding myself wondering what it would be like to go on a date with him, or even kiss him.

I don't know if he likes me that way, although I wonder if maybe he's dropping hints and I'm just dense. He mentioned on Thursday when we were walking back across campus how he stumbles over his words sometimes when he's talking to a girl he likes. And he sort of stumbled over saying that. I'm probably just being crazy and reading too much in it. I sometimes have an overactive imagination (like I keep imagining a scenario from Greek, since I'm in some clubs with the guy's friend, where I date my crush but he gets suspicious or jealous because I'm spending a lot of time with his friend as well). I'm probably going to wait for him to make the first move since 1) I'm not good with confrontations, even friendly ones, and 2) I don't want to mess up a friendship with him.

Sorry about sounding like such a basket-case/teen girl. I swear I'm actually not crazy or whiny. I also swear that I will spend some time either today or tomorrow putting up the mondo book review post.
