i met this guy the week of thanksgiving
i gave him my number, but i haven’t really responded to his invitations or anything, but i get messages from him about once a week. today he sent me a message pertaining to something we must have talked about in the 10 ten minutes we met. i’m both flattered and a little freaked out. stalker? anyway, he wants to take me to a show tonight. should i go?
