Went on two (casual) dates with the girl. They were awesome.

#1 was supposed to be getting dinner, but we caved and ordered a pizza, then cuddled on the couch watching How I Met Your Mother and/or talking.

#2 was just hanging out at a park for a few hours. Mostly just us talking while climbing on random shit before she had to go pick up her sister.

We both seemed to have a great time with both. We continue to text for at least a few hours every day.

She doesn't want to do long distance because that was how her last relationship ended and apparently it was ugly. I think it could work because we're only long distance from now until spring break, and from then until the summer, and we spend most of our time texting even when we're in the same city (she lives like 45 minutes away. Or, more accurately, I live 45 minutes from anything). Debating whether to try and convince her.

Got an interview with a theatre in small-town Maine that's looking for a lighting/sound intern. It'd be cool, but I don't think I want to live in small-town Maine for a summer in exchange for $300 and "experience." So probably fuck that.

Have you two smooched? That was always my Achilles heel, that first kiss. There is the point of no return, when you wait too long and end up in eternal "friend zone." -I've been there before. It's no Bueno.

But you sound like you're 1000 times more emotionally mature than I was at your age. Sounds like a fun time Galen. Young romance is the best. Hell.... all romance is the best. Enjoy!

Indeed we have. We even did the classic teen-movie "make out until she finally pulls away and says 'I really have to go, my parents want me home by 11'" :)

Ha! That's awesome.
