Fate or coincidence that is what I’m thinking about tonight.
I have come to terms with the fact that I have been single for almost a year now and that it’s totally fine. I shouldn’t force anything. Little fact about me I am not a big drinker or someone that goes out to bars and parties. I like to stay home, hangout with friends or watch movies. Yes I am a grandmother. This semester being my last semester as an undergrad I started meeting new people who did go out meaning I would go out with them. We went to a bar called WT’s, it was small and crowded for a Thursday. They told me about “Thirsty Thursday” guess that’s a thing in college. Like I said I don’t get out much! So we had just taken green tea shots when I hear my friend call my name to introduce me to someone whose in his class. There he was mister fate/coincidence. We can call this guy Kevin. Kevin was wearing a red flannel and I couldn’t stop staring at his smile, scratch that I couldn’t stop staring at his face. Not because he was hot or anything, I mean he was handsome but he just had this nice guy face. He sounded like an actual adult which never usually happens I mean you know how college guys are, or just most guys in general they’re not mature. This one was, he was asking me all these smart questions about myself and he just carried himself like a grown man. I never actually got his name and my friend didn’t know it either. They just knew each other from class.
Now here is what you guys don’t know, my friend actually has a crush on me and he’s my best guy friend and it’s an awkward situation I’ll write about it soon. So my best friend, before he told me about his feelings just didn’t really seem to want to help me figure out who this guy was. I honestly thought about making a post on Instagram to see if anyone knew him: “Wanted Guy in Red Flannel who was at WT’s Thursday Please Call Me.” Obviously I didn’t, I’m not desperate. I just assumed this happened to reassure me that it was going to be okay. That I would meet other people and AL was just another person to walk into and out of my life.
The days went on and on the last day of classes as I was walking to my car I stopped in the hall. I don’t know why I stopped but I did and as I turned around guess who was walking towards me…. my best guy friend and the guy from the bar!!!! My mouth dropped, I couldn’t even believe it and he recognized me!!! So he walked me to my car and as we were walking I got a message from my guy friend saying “you finally found your man.” I brushed it off because I still couldn’t believe it. We exchanged numbers and I found out that he doesn’t actually have any social media which I found to be amazing. He doesn’t like it, he told me he would rather have an actual conversation with someone and focus on life not things that aren’t real. Now I’m not saying it’s going to lead to anything. It might not and that’s totally fine. It was just so crazy how things worked out. What are the odds of that happening? I just know I’m not looking to rush into anything right now, I’m still healing. Either way life has ups and downs but one thing is for sure and it’s that life always finds ways to surprise us when we least expect it.
