So there is a girl I've been talking to for a couple weeks now.. I've been seeing her once a week on weekends and then we talk almost daily for like 10 minutes on the phone. I've been wanting to kiss her the past 2 times I've seen her but the mood was never quite right either time. The first time we went to In-n-Out burger at like 1am after I got off work and a bunch of my friends / coworkers were there. She drove herself and I had to give a friend a ride home so there was no opportunity.. The second time I went bowling with her against her mom and dad but since I didn't know them at all I felt a bit uncomfortable doing it. So... tonight.. she was in town and told me she was coming to watch a movie with her parents (I work at a movie theater) and that she would see me later.. Quick rewind: We made some bets while bowling and part of the bet that I lost was that I had to say "(her name) is great" when I would start a conversation with someone while she was around. .. So tonight when she got there I did it for a few minutes before she made it into her movie with her family. Before each movie starts we do announcements to the whole theater asking them to turn off their phones and telling them we can handle any complaints they have, etc. I did the announcement in her theater which had about 110 people in it and at the end of the announcement I made the whole audience give her a round of applause saying that she was "one of the greatest customers of the year"... After that I had her come outside and gave her this gourmet pretzel thing we sell cause she likes them so much.. Right after I gave her a kiss. Made me feel happy not just because I got to kiss her finally but it was a huge step in confidence for me, mainly because of the announcement in front of everyone. Most of the reading I do in here speaks about confidence (it's no mystery that women are attracted to it) so I tried my hardest to do something I normally wouldn't do, and it worked.
