I've been confusing people as of late. In the attempt to be charmingly vauge, I've been cryptic, obfuscatory, and plain annoying. At least to myself.
So, lets recap some events, their interpretations, and listen to Dashboard Confessional ("Ender Will Save us All" as a matter of fact.)
Tuesday night we all get together and chill at Andrea and Greg's. Sarah, Dennis, Myself, Andrea and Greg (obviously) and Cate. I've met Cate once before, and had shpif conversation with her, but for some reason, she didn't stay clear in my head, so this was like a first meeting part 2. Again, we had alot of shpif conversations, and exchanged a decent amount of "Hrm... you're interesting... I'm not quite sure where to go with this" body language.
So, suffice it to say that night, I discussed this with Sarah. I find Cate interesting, and I'm attracted to interesting, and therefore, have an attraction towards Cate. Sarah mentions this when hanging out with Andrea and Greg, who through Sarah relay a warning that I could very well be setting myself up for a fall on that one. And agreed, the general, normal way of dealing with things, would quite easily lead to a big "oopsie".
So anywho, last night I get back to my computer after watching "Enterprise" and "Special Unit 2" (two absolutely great shows for totally different reasons) I find that Cate had shot me an IM. We get to talking, and through twists and turns in the conversation, I end up having with her a conversation very similar to what I'm discussing right now. And we both have reached the same conclusions independantly.
So where does that leave us? Exactly where we started. All that to get to the beginning, sounds annoying I know. Hey- pause, we're going to listen to Rasputina now.
"Prosthetic synthesis of butterflies sewn up with a virgin stitch."
Anywho, being that both Cate and I subscribe to very similar mathmatics of interpersonal interactions I have a feeling we're going to approach this in very much the same way. Hang out and see what happens- with no purposeful direction. The best friendships and anything else on the relationship spectrum generally results from organic growth, not directed "I'm going to make this happen this way."
