This is my first semester at this new college after transferring from somewhere else. I met this girl pretty much at the beginning of the semester. It was slow going at first, but gradually we grew closer and closer, and now she’s the person I trust the most and I think we both feel really comfortable with one another.
I didn’t think I was interested in her in any way except for friends at first, but it becomes more of a possibility as time goes on. The thing is, of course, that I have no idea how she feels.
She’s a really active Catholic, and we have a lot in common. Every time we hang out or do something that should only take an hour or so, it ends up lasting more like 4 hours sometimes. This evening I thought I’d only be there for 2 hours at most, but I came back 6 hours later. We have a lot of fun and enjoy each other’s company.
I guess I didn’t really realize that there was anything there at all until I realized it’s going to be really weird not seeing her over Christmas break, which is about a month. I told her as much and we’re trying to make plans to at least meet up once for a couple of days hopefully.
Anyway I’m still figuring out what I feel, but I don’t exactly know how to proceed. I’m 21, but I’ve really never dated seriously. I’ve generally been too focused on my own studies. I don’t want to take it too cautiously and miss an opportunity, but also don’t want to jump to any conclusions too quickly either.
