I’m in the very beginning stages of seeing this woman. The twist is, she’s actually my ex-girlfriend… we were together for a couple of years when we were ages 18-20, and haven’t had any contact since, until a couple of weeks ago. We’re now 39 and 40. We’ve talked a lot on the phone, and seen each other a couple of times, but we’re taking it S-L-O-W. We haven’t even kissed yet (though I’m hoping to change that tomorrow night :)).
So with Valentine’s Day coming up on Monday, I’m thinking I should do something, even though we’re not really an item. Neither of us has any money. We’re both students, and unemployed at the moment. We both have class on Monday night, mine goes from 5:15 to 6:30, and hers goes from 6:40 to 8:30. So I’m thinking I’ll wait around for her to come out of class, and surprise her with…??
With what? She has to go straight home - kid and babysitter and all that. So I can’t take her anywhere. Candy is out because she’s on a strict diet. The only other thing that comes to mind is flowers, but I don’t remember her being into that sort of thing - back in the day I was Mr. Metalhead and she was Ms. Punk Rocker, so we weren’t exactly into mushy stuff like that. And it would give away my intention if I asked.
