I tried the online thing for a couple weeks and found it wasn't my thing. The majority of girls online in my city are pretty shallow. I had a brief email exchange w/ a couple girls but nothing came out of either. I dunno, it's a good way to meet new people for sure but I just found it wasn't my thing. In some ways I found it made me feel kinda sleazy - like it's a "shopping mall" for guys lol. I guess I'm more of a traditional kinda guy (not surprising really as I've been described of old fashioned when it comes to dating heh).
On that note, I have met a couple of ladies at my weekly volleyball league One I mentioned before in another thread, the one where I mentioned how shy I got around her and all that silly stuff. Well we started talking a couple weeks ago. Found out that she's kinda seeing someone but it wasn't going well at all. Said it's nothing official at all and more of a friendly type thing. Anyhow, this past Wednesday we talked again before the games began and playfully flirted quite a bit when our teams played each other. At one point one of my teammates told me she was checking me out quite a bit during the game Definitely something I was happy to hear. Unfortunately she left before I was finished my last game so I didn't get a chance to talk to her anymore that night.
A couple weeks ago, a girl on my team (who I met a couple times before through my buddy) asked me out of the blue in between games if I wanted to come out w/ her and her friend (who's on my team too) after the games were done. I figured why not, it'd be fun. I also didn't think much of it because I know she's in a relationship and the figured her friend was also. Well we go out and girl #1 left to go home an hour later leaving me and girl #2 by ourselves lol. We chatted and laughed quite a bit, we just had a great time. Found out she was actually single too but I didn't take it beyond that for the time being. I just took the whole events of the night at face value - good times, good laughs and good people.
Right now I don't really know where things will end up. I'm just going with the flow.. taking my time and just enjoying things for what they're worth. The league's banquet is in a couple weeks so we'll see where things go. It's funny though... I'm finally feeling like I can make myself happy and I don't think I've ever felt this good and confident.
