Am I growing up?

I asked a girl out tonight. We're going on a date next week.

This will be the first time I've actually dated someone. It's been all about the one night stands and meaningless encounters up until now.

I have finally met someone that I really like and respect and want to spend time with and I think she feels the same.

The best part is that I feel no trepidation about starting this new part of my life. It feels great.

Anyway, that's all. Just thought I'd share this

No. You're just trying your hand at the concept of "having a relationship." It's a beautiful thing. I prefer it over the "meaningless encounters" approach that evolve into nothing after the first few dates or so.

Heck, I act more like a kid when I'm with my girlfriend (in body, not in mind), and only she can make me do that and enjoy it as much as I do!

Good luck. If you need some pointers about relationships, page Air.

Doesn't mean you're growing up, just means you found somebody worthwhile... well we'll see after the first few dates.

Most girls I meet are worthless and result in meaningless encounters...

What will be the determinant as to the extent of your recent growth spurt will be the actions you take after said date.

If you kiss and smile, your growth spurt was nil. If you make love and hug, you may have grown substantially. If you bang and bolt, your growth spurt was negative.

Why do you want to grow up?

Have you started gaining weight that you're finding it difficult to take off?

If not, you're not quite there yet.

Weird Al says it best: "Girls just want to have lunch."

Unfortunately, they want us to join them.

OH, Mirona, don't listen to these silly people. Good for you for wanting to invest some time and energy into someone that is important to you. Yes, my dear, you are growing up and you will survive the transformation! :-)
