I've been dating this girl for about a month now. Going pretty well. She was a work friend at my old job, and apparently, she was always interested in me when we worked together. I had a girlfriend back then, so even though I had a thing for her too, I couldn't really pursue it.
So I lost that job, lost the girlfriend, but then this girl moved to China for 2 years. She got back over the summer, and we started catching up, and went out, and it's nice. She already knows me, so I don't have to pretend I'm not a screw up. The only real downside is that she is still looking for a job and her own place since she's been back from China. Not a deal breaker though.
the really interesting thing about this is kinda seeing how the universe puts people together. Maybe the reason I had that awful ex is to keep me from dating this girl 4 or 5 years ago, where we probably would have had to break up either after I got fired, or she moved to China. Like, if I was going to be with this girl, it would HAVE to be now, you know?
Anyway, last night was the litmus test. I made her watch Troll 2 with me and she enjoyed it.
