What an amazing weekend! Friday, after youth group, Kimberly, Sterling, Christin, new friend Tessa, and a few others went to eat at IHOP. These girls are the joy of my life these days. I took Kimberly home afterwards.
Saturday, after going to Northwest River Park to measure a pier I found there for a short film I hope to make, I went to Kim’s birthday party, and everyone just had a fantastic time. There was so much laughter!
Afterwards, some of us went to the movies and saw She’s All That. It was definitely a movie for 16-year-old girls, but that’s who I surrounded by, so it was fun. I took Kimberly home then as well. I sat next to her in church this morning and felt like a helpless high schooler again. She’s unbelievable, and I wanted so badly to reach over and hold her hand, but I didn’t. Sometimes it feels like I like every girl I ever meet.
I went over to Sterling’s this afternoon and we played in her room all afternoon. At the Super Bowl party tonight at church, the teenagers started talking about potential guy/girl relationships, so I walked away and stayed out of it. Later Rebekah came and talked to me and asked me if I knew how women wanted to be treated. I shared my answer and her mouth hung open in disbelief. She said I was spot on. My feelings then were bittersweet. Many women tell me I have them all figured out, yet I don’t have anyone to give share my life with.
David and I talked a bit after everyone left. He is interested in a 20-year old girl at church. He’s 26. It should happen.
February is around the corner, so it feels like talk of love and relationships is in the air.
But no matter how much I dream of Kimberly or Christin, these girls are simply too young for me at this stage of life. They are Winter Dreams. I will have moved on from here by the time they are of the right age for a serious relationship to truly go anywhere.
But that doesn’t mean I won’t lose sleep thinking about them now.
