He who does not weep, does not see.

It seems I've been in a weepy mood the last couple days. Nothing major, just seeing parts of Galveston washed completely away and tonight's episode of One Tree Hill. Ike didn't affect me directly, other than taking my vacation away and making me feel like a fucking prophet because I said it wouldn't hit here. I think we got maybe thismuch rain, and that wasn't even all over.

Date Four turned out to be twelve hours long. Yes, twelve! He picked me up at 13o in the afternoon and we headed to one of the large museums at the university here. After three and a half hours of making fun of art (Seriously, we had a deep discussion about why the West Wind is smelling his finger in that painting.) we were a little arted out. Went to dinner at a sushi place, which I am told is a good sign. Met two of his friends who already new who I was. They were cool, but probably a bit upset I was rooting for USC and not OSU and um, well, USC kicked the shit out of OSU. Ooops. We were going to watch Gilmore Girls, but Blockbuster didn't have it, so I picked Run, Lola, Run. Entirely in German. Good one, Ruby Soho, pick a movie you actually have to pay attention to. There was some close sitting during the movie, arms and legs touching. After the movie was more talking. We even talked about not assuming anything until we have some sort of talk about "commitment." He dropped me off a little after 130 in the morning. Date Five is tomorrow with him cooking.

Okay, so as I ruminated lat time, there's a general thought amongst my friends that he's gay. Both PB -the gay best friend- and RepoGirl -the best friend- think this and they only have what I say to go on. Is he just shy, which I'm going to believe? We talked about taking things slow in relationships in general and he's said he's been with women before so...... I'll be honest, I've been celibate this whole year and I'm beginning to get antsy, but I won't rush into anything, 'cause that's you know, bad. I'm also very damn impatient and want to be all "What the fuck are we doing?" We ended Date Four with a slightly tighter air hug.

Does anyone have any advice? I'm trying to be very good, but damn.

Well, my husband, who was my boyfriend at the time, was VERY shy about stuff like that. So, maybe if you initiate small stuff like holding hands then things will get rolling...
