“Wait, you want to go to Portland? That’s crazy. And why would you want to go to school in Montreal?”
“You do realize the world is never going to accept bicycles as a form of transportation. Americans love their cars.”
“There’s no such thing as sexism in politics.”
And after that, I get a note under my door, asking if we could go out sometime.
Honestly y’all- I can’t be more serious than I am about this right now. I really don’t think it is possible for me to date in Albany. Maybe that will change one day? I don’t know.
If there is anything I have learned in these last three weeks- I’m really enjoying being single right now. Of course, it gets lonely sometimes- I miss having someone to get coffee with, go biking with, and take random adventures with. However, as much as I miss that kind of company, I realize that I can’t do what I enjoy with just anyone either.
As I told my boss- I’m pretty convinced I’ll meet the right guy one day when we park our bikes at the same bike rack and he asks me out for coffee.
Until that day, I’m just enjoying being Alex.
