Sorry for the rambling post that is going to follow, but I needed to write this down somewhere, and getting feedback from Vag is a bonus. I met a girl (Girl B, we'll call her) over the summer through a friend. We hit it off, found out we went to the same college, etc. Got up to college in the fall, and it became apparent within a month or two that we weren't compaitable enough to date. However, I did meet her roommate, Girl A. Girl A is everything I could ever ask for in a girl. She doesn't bullshit, fuck around, or lie like a typical girl. She'll tell you what she thinks, what she feels, and she'll tell you to your face. It is a wonderful breath of fresh air to know that if she's got something, ANYTHING to say, she's gonna say it. She's a very geniune girl; what you see is what you get with Girl A. She's VERY smart, and she's got a sense of humor that'll see her in hell soon enough We often have "retard" conversations with each other and joke about having to wear helmets to class when we're in stupid moods. We've been haning out a LOT the past couple weeks. We've cooked dinner a few times (cooking is a hobby), and its been just me and her. She comes over and drinks with us when most people aren't drinking (Wednesday at 6 p.m. ), we go shopping/run errands together, have a class together, etc. etc. People have starting getting misconceptions about "us" because up to this time we've just been saying that we're friends and enjoy each other's company. However, I think she knows as well as I do that friends don't sit down and have dinner for two with a bottle of (good) wine and watch a movie afterwards I often get the feeling that there might be something more brewing between us, but I really don't want to take the chance of fucking up our friendship. I really do enjoy her company moreso than any other girl I've ever met, and even most guys. She's headed out of town today, and its a 6.5 hour drive to where she's going. I burned her 4 CDs of 80s music, and a couple others I'm pretty sure she'll like. If there is a friend zone, I'm firmly in the epicenter of it. I like it. IMO to find somebody you can really really fall for, you've got to go through the friendzone to get there. I really hope it works with this girl, because I can tell already she's going to be the basis of comparison for every other girl I meet in the forseeable future. Comments and responses would be welcome; I just needed to get that out there and it feels really good to write that down and look at it Thanks folks.
