Ticker to Goal

So for those of you who don't know ...

I have a crush on a guy who works in an aquatics (fish) shop where I go to buy stuff for my beautiful aquarium. I have been going there for a couple of years. He has worked there the entire time. We have always got on well and I have had this crush on him since I first started going. So much so that I NEVER go to this shop without make up on or my hair done nicely. I do not go in wearing old clothes or something that I have just chucked on. I make an effort when I go there. For him essentially. I even kept going when another guy who worked there started following me around the shop (probably thinking the hair, make up and nice clothes were for his benefit even though he was old enough to be my dad!) He sheltered me from said creepy guy and talked me into making a complaint (which I did and creepy guy left!) Since I upgraded my tank in October, I spent A LOT of time and money there and after a while he asked me to add him as a friend on facebook. I did but the next time I went in, he complained about the lack of photos of my tank so I sent him some and then the messaging started. First via facebook and then via text. Then back in March, we decided we were going to watch a scary film together. He was coming here so he could see the tank in person. It took us long enough to get a date but today was the day.

Well ...

It turns out he likes me too :oD Apparently he has liked me for ages but didn't know if I liked him too. He knows now. Such a shame he has a girlfriend :o( He said I was beautiful though. That's made me smile more than anything else has done for a long time. The fat girl inside me will never really get used to being told that.

I don't know about the guy! Crushes are great fun, don't get me wrong - but any guy with a girlfriend who makes scary movie dates with other women and tells them he likes them and that they're beautiful sounds like a bit of trouble.

Ahhh. Blessed trouble though, so irresistable. ;)

He must really 'love' his girlfriend alot to come over to your place just to 'check out your tank' and tell you you're beautiful... (I'm being sarcastic) i would hang tight and see where this goes.
btw I have the best husband - who is not fat - in the world (89% of the time) who I got as a fat chick and many of my skinny friends and family are miserable with their boys.

You're fat girl inside is a part of who you are and what makes you beautiful... but its ok to tell her to bugger off and let you enjoy the moment!!!
