There once was a girl who got a job at a nonprofit.
There, she met a boy.
Well, not a boy, a man.
He was a great deal older than her, but she didn’t care about such silly nonsense like age or social norms. She liked him.
He wasn’t quite as responsive. In fact, he thought she was pretty weird.
But she made friends with him anyway.
And she flirted with him. As best as she could, anyway. Which wasn’t very good at all.
Mostly, she just talked to him. Unfortunately, they worked in different office buildings, so she had to rely on talking on the phone.
And chatting online.
Which they did…a lot.
But, he still didn't want to ask her out. So, she waited.
Eventually, he realized she wasn’t so bad. And he started flirting back a little. Well...mostly, he just said filthy things.
And finally one day, while she was walking alone in a park, he sent her an email asking her out on a date.
And she grinned like an idiot.
And they had a wonderfully nerve-wracking first date. They realized that they very much liked one another, and he became Boyfriend.
A few months later, he encouraged her to start a blog.
And she did. And then one day, she realized a whole year had gone by since she first started dating Boyfriend. So she used her blog to say:
Also, she wanted to let him know that she is going to hug the crap out of him after work today.
PS. He still thinks she’s a little bit weird.
