No, not the pizza. I’m talking about the little black blocks of wood/plastic that when lined up and pushed over cause a chain reaction which causes further dominos to fall.
This year (2011) I began tertiary education at the University of Newcastle, Australia. First and foremost I realised how huge this place was, secondly I realised how cute all the girls were/are. So at my orientation at the beginning of this year (after doing what I was actually sent there to do) I scoped out all the ladies, one in particular caught my eye.
A few weeks passed before I began seeing her around all my classes, finally I worked up the courage to go talk to her. She was (is?) a very pretty, nice, down to earth girl and after a while we started getting along, however she kept mentioning her friend, Lisa, who she kept hanging out with because she had known her from high school. The next day looking for this girl lead to me meeting her nice friend - the infamous Lisa. She was (is?) also a nice, down to earth girl that, although we weren’t initially each others “types”, we both shared a common interest (which I won’t go into). :)
Over the next few weeks this “common interest” would allow for Lisa and I to develop a friendship, consisting of the exchange for secrets and many phone calls (growing in length), Lisa would develop to become one person who I would feel more close to than any other person in the world. Lisa would serve as my
very ineffective “wingman”, helping me with all my lady troubles whilst giving me advice on the subject. Eventually, after many failed pursuits, Lisa said to me that perhaps “I was not looking in the right place” - something that I had been expecting to hear for a while :P
My friendship with Lisa blossomed to become a much closer “boyfriend/girlfriend” relationship, and although it was hard to decide whether to remain purely friends or take a shot at something more, I found myself falling for her more and more.
Today (21/6/2011) would mark the first week since Lisa and I became a couple, and although I can’t always be sure of what I’m feeling emotionally, I know that I’ve found a really great, worthwhile girl and it is just curious to think that this all happened through a random decision to talk to a cute girl - I guess that’s just life isn’t it?
