Soul Bearing: In which the Romantic boldy goes where only Meg Ryan has gone before

3/08/2011 The Romantic 3 Comments

I hope this isn't too weird. And I may even delete this later because I feel that weird about typing this. But oh well, here it goes.

Confession time.

When we get new followers, or people that comment on our posts, I'll check out their profiles, and scan their blogs from time to time. It's all in the name of curiosity; just to see who reads our stuff. .

There is one particular male reader who's commented on a couple things.

So naturally, I've read your blog dear sir. And you know what? You have great things to say! And your picture is really cute. (yeah, i just went there) My intrigue has been peaked. But this isn't the 90's, and you just can't go approaching people on the internet. It's weird.

However, today I was making my way through the library, and I saw you! And we made that weird eye contact that strangers do. I knew I recognized you from somewhere, but I couldn't remember where from. I only knew it was somewhere that I should probably be embarrassed about, so I immediately averted my eyes. And it wasn't until I walked past that I realized we'd never met before. And yet, if you have read a lot of our blog, then you know me in a way that only my closest friends do.

It was the strangest sensation. I felt like you'd recognized me. Which is impossible. Of course. Isn't it?

I don't really know where I'm going with this.

Maybe its too many late nights watching Sleepless in Seattle with my room mates. But I'm feeling bold today and why not pull a meg ryan? After all, they don't call me the Romantic for nothing.

So here it goes:
You don't seem like the type of guy a girl should just pass by. So, I'd like to formally introduce myself. If you're up for it. Email me?

And if not, then that's fine. But thank goodness for anonymity.

ps. for those of you who are wondering how i could do something so bold after last weekend, i don't know where this is coming from. but guitar hero isn't worth it. and if this aforementioned reader's posts are any indication of what type of person he is, then he is worth an outlandish inquiry that may or my not garner a response.

who knew i could be so bold?

First off, forgive that earlier outburst about marriage. Clearly, the BYU mindset has started to get to me.

Anyways, I am so excited that you're putting yourself out there! I always dreamed about something like this happening to me! I suppose I will just live vicariously through you :)

Oh, and PS...Hi. I'm Kelli. I love your blog because it seems so much like something I would do :)
