Single Status Update
Hmm...been having some thoughts lately that have been making me think, mainly in regards to humans of the female kind.
On the one hand is girl #1, who we will call Sally to protect the innocent. Before I left home for Japan, I talked with Sally and told her I loved her. She never outright said that she loved me too, but instead said she felt the same way towards me she thought. Also, she told my friends that the reason she hasn't gone out with me is because I was going to go to Japan. Sally is a girl I've been "wooing" for about a year now, and while we've had some fights where I didn't want to even have much contact with her, I generally like her very much, and she's starting to show signs of liking me very much, too.
However, since I met Sally, I've always questioned in my mind just how well we would be able to date one another, and how "reliable" or "true" (both used as a loose terms) she would be to our relationship. And there's always the question of just how she feels about me, as she's not very open about it, at least not yet.
Girl #2, whom we shall call Susan (who is NOT Japanese, but another exchange student), is someone here in Japan. Susan is someone whom I'm finding out I really really like, and who, at least at times, appears to like me as well in a way that's a bit more than just a friend. Susan reminds me of Sally in that she has all of Sally's good points, plus none of Sally's bad points. Susan of course has some bad points (come on, she's a human), but they aren't noticeable to me. She also seems like the type where I would have the same questions popping up in my head as with Sally. And my mom would end up liking Susan better than Sally as well. Susan seems more family oriented than Sally, which is a trait I like to look for in girls.
The problem is, back in the US, Susan lives a few states away. And she's only here in Japan 'till December 11th, me the 12th.
What to do...what to do...I just don't know which way to go.
Eh. Do them both.
Numbermind's ultimate philosophy: When in doubt, whip it out.
Now for the real advice, well...it looks like you could have fun dating and getting to know either girl, though Susan seems to be the best bet. Anyway, I don't think it's always a good idea to "date to marry", because then you try to hard to find someone who's perfect, and that simply isn't very feasible. Not only that, but the seriousness of such a search would ruin any fun you get from dating. So just relax, let come what may and see what happens. Don't try to plan anything major around either of these girls - you'll only be setting yourself up for disappointment.
