The pattern in my life thus far has been such: Chris likes girls (to be fair I rarely commit myself to a particular one), Chris attempts to gain girls’ favor, fails, and complains about the whole endeavor. Last weekend this pattern strangely inverted. I had a girl ask me out one night (not a first, but a rarity) and another tell me she really likes me the other. To say confess her undying love for me would be quite an exaggeration, but she did come out and tell me that she has liked me for a while (I could’ve broken my dateless Valentines streak) and that I’ve evidently been completely missing the signals. I like her as well and we’re now dating. Weird no? I guess this is the way it’s supposed to work, but I’ve never really experienced it this easily. My theory is that the closer I get to medical school the more irresistible I become. That and my sideburns are pretty much amazing.
