Sorry for taking so long yo update since the last entry. I guess I needed time to consider things and see if I really wanted to continue with the blog. Lucky for you I did.
Things are actually going really well, and I owe that all to Jason. I feel like he is the friend I have been looking for since I got here. I feel like I can text him any time to hang out and he's totally okay with it. We have continued our nightly walks around the city and have had some really interesting conversations about girls, sex, and prostitution. Even with all this, I haven't decided if he's gay yet. Although I noticed something that he does that I do as well. he says things like "attractive people" and "date people" instead of saying "attractive girls" and "date girls". Even in situations when most guys would say girls or chicks. Does this mean he is hiding something? Is he bi? Or does he not know yet? Whatever the case, I'm interested.
Something interesting that happened last night was he told me about reading questions on a website where people were asking "weird" things like "What kind of underwear do you prefer?" and "Is it normal to pleasure yourself daily?", as well as the common question "How big are you down there?". Anyways, this was interesting because he had obviously planned to tell me this, it wasn't just a random conversation. It just doesn't seem like something you normally bring up in conversation. I asked if he answered the questions but he said no. I should have said "I'll answer them if you do", but didn't think of that until after. I kind of feel like that's what he was going for when he brought it up, but I can't be sure.
Oh, and about the picture. Well, there is this big fountain in my city and we always see little kids playing in it. But I was feeling adventurous at dinner with Justin, so I said "we should go play in the fountain." At first he was a little hesitant, with a blank stare and "Seriously?". I pursued, and he quickly gave in. We went back to the dorm and changed into our swimsuits (not together, unfortunately). We looked a little funny waiting in the lobby with our swimsuits and towels at 9pm. But we went anyways. On the way there he said "This is the craziest thing I've ever done". I responded by saying "Yeah, well I have a feeling we will do even crazier things as time goes on. We are in college after all".
When we got to the fountain we set our stuff down and took our shirts off and walked towards the fountain. It is near a bunch of really formal restaurants and hotels so we made sure to go in when no one was looking. The water was colder than I expected but not too bad. He started out by blocking one of the shoots of water with his hand, getting me soaked. I grabbed his arms and pushed him towards the center where he was laying back against the heightened part in the middle of the fountain, soaking him (The perfect movie moment would be to push him back until I was on top of him, then kiss him. But not yet...) He laughed then pushed me off of him. We then continued to walk around the fountain until Jason decided to climb up on top of the middle section. It was a big step up. It took him a few tries until he made it. I tried to join him but couldn't pull myself up. So he reached out his hand to pull me up. I grabbed hold, then tried jumping for it. My foot missed and I fell and scraped my side on the way down. It hurt like hell, but the fact that I got to hold his hand made it worth it.
After our "Wet Expectations", we sat on a bench to dry off. We talked about favorite colors. He told me he hated purple (which Mikey told me was his favorite color on me). I know when not to wear my purple shirts then. I'll save those for home. He also mentioned that he wanted to dye his hair bright green. I told him that he should and then "now was the time to experiment". I give so many hints that I'm not sure he picks up on. Or maybe he does, he seems smarter in that department than Mikey.
Anyways, I'm thinking about asking him if he wants to take the bus to a big city nearby Saturday to go shopping. I'm going to wait until Thursday or so to ask him. Just to give him a little break from me. I thought about also looking into getting a hotel, but then figured it was too early for that. But if I ever figure out that he is gay then I'm going all the way haha.
This is the start of a beautiful friendship, that may blossom into something much more pleasurable.
