I did something totally out of character

It is a well-established fact that when it comes to meeting and interacting with new guys, I'm pretty hopeless (hence joining the dating site). I have never slipped my number to a guy before and it's not something I ever plan on doing.

Except that I did. On Friday I was eating dinner by myself at this tasty fish restaurant and I was reading an old issue of National Geographic. The waiter happened to comment on this, asking if it was a good issue because he just got a subscription to it and hadn't read the current issue yet. I told him it was an old one, but he still seemed interested. Now, he was probably just interested in the magazine and making small talk, but something made me decide to leave it behind, for him, with a note written on the cover indicating a good article and, should he want any more back issues, my phone number.

I haven't heard from him—he's too cute to be single, anyway—but it would have been kind of cool if I had.

Well you go, girl! In my own opinion, the best parts of life are usually things I never thought I'd do.

Good for you! I am totally impressed. It's not the sort of thing I assume you would do, either, but it's cool all the same.

I'm soooooo proud of you!

Life's best surprises come from taking chances.

Love you!
