Working with a Deadline

I am definitely interested in The Boy Downstairs.

Noting that I have less than a week to try and establish some sort of a relationship with him, I decided to invite him over for dinner yesterday. Usually, I wouldn't have done something like that so soon for fear of freaking him out (after all, we'd gone on a date just the night before). But I'm working with a deadline here!

Dinner went fabulously. My best friend/roommate totally approved of him...she came into the kitchen to grab something and he seamlessly integrated her into the conversation. Definitely gave him brownie points for that one. Apparently, he understands the age-old concept that "If you wanna be my lover, you've gotta get with my friends."

The problem has become: What now? I found out he'll actually be heading out on Friday, not Saturday. So as of today, I have four days to do...something. But I have no idea what. I guess I'm not sure what I want to happen between us. He made it very clear that he wants to get together again before he leaves. I made it clear that I felt the same way. But beyond that, I think neither one of us knows exactly what sort of a relationship we want to have. I think I'd be interested in dating know, when he comes back from Europe in two months. Right now I think my recent break-up is still a little too fresh for me to jump into any new relationships. But what can I do now to make sure that he's still interested when he comes back then? I guess I'll just play it by ear and see what happens.

In other news, I walked out my front door this morning and found a little gift from one of my other admirers. I've been a bit under the weather, and Cute James left a can of soup on my doorstep. Aww. Looks like he's also trying to make it very clear to me that he's interested.

FYI, playing both sides of the fence is not very courteous. Just a reminder, in case you were thinking of doing so.
