I’m just starting to date a new guy, who has been out of town since that date where we really should have kissed at the end but didn’t because we’re fail. It’s been almost two weeks and he finally came back in town yesterday with his niece and nephew in tow. He was shy about it but it was clear that he wanted to see me, so I invited myself out to dinner with them. I hung out with him and his family for dinner and then they went back to doing touristy stuff. But it made me feel very liked and appreciated that he wanted to spend time with me on his one and half day trip back with the kids.
(Seriously, I almost martyred myself to a justifiably angry black woman on Jezebel for the sin of being a white lady and that's not condescending at all.)
