I don't know if you are familiar with the phrase "talking", but it refers to two people who have an interest in each other geting to know each other. There is a lot of time spent on the phone, maybe in person as well. It's a step below dating. And when you're "talking" to someone, there's no expectation of exclusivity, nor is there any formal allotment for jealousy for anyone with a higher title. For example, if you're talking to someone, you can be mad if they start talking to someone else, but not mad if they start dating someone else. Or something like that. I prefer to just outright date someone. But whatever.
I mentioned is some previous post how Top has been speaking on the phone to this guy we went to college with. Well, she's starting to kind of like him. I immediately got worried because of two reasons: he's the marrying type, and he lives in a different state.
She's against marriage right now (I hope that changes. She'd make a great wife and mother) and she's also against dating someone long distance. But yet, she likes this guy. And they've been speaking more frequently. But then I had to reming myself that Top isn't like most women. She doens't set some rules for herself and then turn around and break them just because she's found someone who may be worth it.
This guy would have to move to New York if he wanted a real shot at her, and even that might kill his chances. He just finished grad school and is looking to settle down somewhere new. But if he were to try to go to NYC without a good reason to be there besides Top, it would turn her off so fast that he would be left with his head spinning. She's definitely a tough cookie to crack, but that's what makes her awesome. She would never end up with a loser who would try to take advantage of her.
PT Update: He has decided to go to the game with us. Should be interesting... And we haven't heard back from the family friends yet on whether they're coming. If they aren't we'll see about if his daughter will join us.
