The other night I went out with my (holy crap! I don’t know what to call him since I didn’t get response from my “Relationship Labels” blog) male friend at a Westside watering hole. There was only one seat at the bar so of course my friend had me sit. We ordered drinks and since we knew a lot of people there we started socializing. My “friend” was mingling, which is what we both do when we’re together, and so did I. The guy next to me struck up a conversation and we did the small talk. “Josh” as I will call him, gave me the 411 about job, why move to Maui etc. I gotta say, I was just being nice so if you quizzed me on him, I couldn’t tell you squat. During our chit chat, I introduced him to my “friend” and after a while he asked me if we were together. Heller, I’m not one for PDAs however, you can tell. So I played ” Josh’s” game and spelled it out for him. Ironic since my “friend” and I have yet to define our “dating” status. Anyway, when “Josh” was ready to leave, he said,” I’m going to give you my number and when you are ready to get rid of him… call me. ” And then he wrote his phone number on a napkin. OMG. now I don’t know if I described my “friend” and I have yet to describe “Josh” It’s not that “Josh” was a toad. But then again, yes, compared to my undefined “friend” there is no comparison. We left shortly after and on the way home I told my “friend” what happened, showed him the phone number and we cried “Weeeeeee!” all the way home. Was that the right analogy? Regardless, it comes back to the point about “Josh”–Fabulous confidence or nothing to lose?
