So, I went on a date. Yeah, I know I don't Date. It was a date. Not a Date. I'll get around to explaining the difference sometime later. Anyway, I discovered this morning, while walking and talking with her, that I had opportunities to tease her and WASN'T TAKING THEM. I'm not sure how I can explain this to those of you who haven't dated me. I consider conversation like fencing. Poke, poke, parry, thrust, a hit, a palpable hit! And no joke, none, absofuckinglutely none, is not worth trying.
My motivation for not taking the teasing opportunities was very strange, too. Most of the time, if I don't take those opportunities, it's because I'm not comfortable doing it. You know, you don't mention kinky sex to your co-workers anytime they say a vaguely relevant word, that sort thing. This wasn't that. This was me thinking "I have nothing to gain by making this joke. She likes me, I like her, it's not funny enough to waste the time."
This is a strange new world for me.
