First of all, the earth-shattering news is that I'm dating someone. I guess I have been, but I just didn't know it, which leads to the title of the post. A couple of Wednesdays ago, I met up with the boy for a little DTR. Boy tells me, "I'm just trying to get to know you right now," which was slightly exasperating because I felt like we'd been on enough dates to kind of figure out if we were going to date - and to continue to get to know each other - or not. However, I had been on the I-don't-want-to-date-him page only days before, so I figured it was fair and I would just have to be patient and wait for him to decide if he wanted to date me or not. Not only that, but not dating was kind of convenient because a good friend of mine had asked if he could take me on a real date sometime, and since Boy told me he might go out with this girl that some people are trying to set him up with, I was at total liberty to go out with my friend (which I did). Since that time, we've spent a ton of time with each other, and I feel like he's treated me like he's dating me. I mean, he bought me a tree for my birthday - doesn't that mean something?? :)
This evening I was talking to him on the phone, and something comes up about him not being able to invite girls over or something, and so I replied something like, "Why not? We're not dating." To which he replies that he thinks we are, or something. What?? So we had a fun conversation about how he's not dating anybody else, and he tells people we're dating. I don't know how I was supposed to get that out of what he had said before, but oh well. I know now. Communicating with boys - good times.
