Got this today as an offline message on MSN messenger, from my friend Bahati:

Secretgeek, how are you? Thought i should let you know, there are many ladies around you. You should ask one out. There is no lady that can resist love and persistence. Believe in yourself. You are a wonderful guy. You and your girl can build a future together. Okay?

I’ve been contemplating this lately, and I think as soon as my life is back in order and my finances allow it, I’ll check into visiting her after all.
