    Yes!! She asked me to text her so she can save my number and said she will text me during the week so I can help her non profit/startup

    @dreamingfreely I have no idea. Ive had two separate people tell me she gives off serious vibes without me asking or saying anything. She's been single ever since I've known her. But I BARELY know her. I have a feeling she likes girls but hasn't really figured it out yet. ugh. Still, I'd like to get to know her. In any case, she could be a good new friend. And trust, in the apocalypse I'm living in, I can never have too many friends.

    That sounds fair enough. I think that is the right attitude, treat it as though you are getting to know a new friend and anything else is a bonus.

    So we've been messaging back and forth. I'm helping her spread the word. It'd be nice to spend more time w/ her and figure out if she's into girls or not.

    Also, being attracted to someone makes me feel less broken, idk if that makes sense. Like I can still feel.

    Good for you. Like Silverhalo said at the very least you can make a new friend. You can also help people very much. It seems like a win win situation. Also you have something to do to keep your mind busy.

    my bff made me dinner tonight and her new bf and her were saying that they are really invested in me + this girl's story and that we'd look super cute together.

    UGH

    I don't wanna get my hopes up. But I agree, we would totes look cute together.

    Soooo PROUD of you @Soundofmusic ! What a perfect way to make a first step! And her response seems very encouraging. After all she could have responded, 'okay thanks, I'll let you know.' Not the case AT ALL!

    Makes perfect sense! Especially right now and going through such a difficult time. An attraction, something positive to focus on, to feel something---priceless. And just what you need right now.

    You go girl! :slight_smile:

    You guys now I feel like a straight up creep.

    First, I messaged her the link to the relief website for my company to show her that I shared her initiative and she read and didn't reply.

    Second, my office lost power so we are moving to the co-working space from which she works from (which happens to be in my apartment building, btw)

    I'm gonna look like a stalker lol. eeek

    Don't panic. I know it's easier said than done but she probably didn't reply because she was busy or because she didn't think it needed a response.

    As for moving that's not in your control. It's not something instigated by you so you won't look like a stalker. Just enjoy the view.

    well, we're no longer moving offices. my boss decided its better for us to stay in the dark for hours rather than go to an office with wifi and power.

    I'm torn. I wont look like a creep but also how am I meant to work? lol...

    On another note, just put my apt up for rent and my cousin said I can move in with her in queens as soon as I'm able to get a flight out of the island (idk when that will be - maybe a month).

    Wow, that's great about having somebody in Queens! The job search might be easier if you are already here.

    So... found out i can rent out my apt for twice what i pay. Found out flights are being sold for next week for $99. Found out i have two connections willing to help me in the city.

    Whats holding me back?? Fear. Im so scared.

    Meanwhile, crush girl (in the spirit of @RJay, lets call her A), just followed me on instagram. :\

    It's scary for sure. Think about it in that worst case scenario you go and you spend 6 months there or however long there and decide you don't like it. You can always go back. Right now it sounds a lot like anywhere is better than where you are. So maybe that is the push you needed.

    Oh and yay for her following you on instgram.
