As mentioned earlier, I was having brunch the other day with my friend when I was asked the question, “How long has it been since your last relationship?”
I mentally counted the months… my god, it’s already been 20 months and counting!
Has it ever been THAT long? 🙂
Funny however that time flew by so fast — you know what they say, time flies when you’re having fun!
And yes, I was having tons of fun with my new job (though no longer new as I’ve already surpassed probation period), meeting awesome new people, studying for the CFA (ummm… or maybe not) and yes, “hanging out” with a cool variety of men.
But for some reason, Cupid’s arrow just kept on missing!
Sure, I’ve met tons of guys — for the past couple of weeks, there were a handful of guys popping up in my life here and there. So actually, Top Climber teasing me that I had guys of the week was kinda true.
There’s the guy who I had an enjoyable time hanging out last Monday. He flew in from Hong Kong for business, and after dining atop the Taipei 101 and sharing some lovely conversation, we felt comfortable enough to decide to hang out again later this week.
Yes, on the good side, he did call up to followup on the times we’ll see each other tomorrow and Friday. Hahaha, at least, I have someone to watch “Pirates of the Carribean” with, so I’m so looking forward to the next couple of days.
Then, a week ago, there was that other guy who wanted to meet up as soon as he flew in. We had drinks at the Villa but since it was a school night, ended the conversation by the stroke of midnight.
Likewise, I don’t think we’ll see the last of him yet. He is coming again in the next couple of weeks so we may hear from him again. 🙂
Oh and yes, two weekends ago, there was that Nomad guy who I had a radical time dining with at People, and then having drinks outside the steps of the Shangri-La Plaza Hotel.
Sure, he propositioned me to go up to his room to continue our conversation, but still, it was an interesting experience nevertheless.
And no, in case you’re wondering, I’m naive but I’m not THAT naive.
Anyway, that’s beside my point.
Despite meeting up with all these eligible, envy-worthy men, it seems that love has escaped my grasp and for most of them, it’s just one dangerous banana peel waiting to happen. Sure, most of them were great in their own way but for some reason, something was still missing.
Sure, I knew I was going to have a grand time going out with them, but somehow lacked that chemistry, that emotional roller coaster ride that I used to have for example, with Michan. I liked them… but I didn’t really like them LIKE them.
I knew for most, I had the upper hand and yes, I am not stupid to not know that they are interested, but how about me?
To put it frankly, I wasn’t interested enough.
But all these came to an end these past few days.
Yes ladies and gentlemen, I am very interested in a guy right now. People would say it’s a crush. Top Climber said that I’m practically obssessed.
“I’ve never really seen you get excited with any guy before,” he observed with eyes wide open. “What makes this guy so different from the rest?”
“I feel, I know, he is an old soul,” I began. “I think he’s the type of guy I wouldn’t care about what other people think or what it took to make it work. I KNOW I want to get to know him better. I really, really like this guy.“
Yes, this guy, let’s call him Skipper, has been running in my mind the last couple of days:
Frankly, I have yet to discover what makes this guy special, but from our teasing banters over the phone, Skipper has endeared himself to me unlike other guys can. When I talk to him, I get really excited and after the conversation, there is a skip to my walk, a smile to my face.
Yes, it’s been awhile since I’ve felt like that. And it feels really good.
I wonder if he knew though?
Gawd, I hope not — that would be so embarrassing!
Chances of this crush being reciprocated is quite slim, but a girl can hope can’t I?
So we’ll see — only time will tell and luckily, it won’t take that much time to see him again. Ooooh, so excited in his arrival.
Crossing our fingers and do pray for me! Wish me luck!
