I shouldn’t say anything, but I actually got a reply from a girl whom I had written to when I was filled with doubts about Gwen. She replied the day after Gwen dumped me, but I only saw the reply this past week. I don’t see the “perfect” match in interests with this one, but she is cheerful – almost a bit bubbly – and fun, so after a few days of emailing I asked her out. Details are still being negotiated but she did say yes, so I presume it’ll happen at some point this week.

If you do have any smart advice for me (and I am not being cynical), now is the time. I am looking at you, Love [Handles] and Lipstick. ;-)
