Samantha works in the same office complex and just stopped by to pay her rent.
"If you'd ever stop in to see me, I wouldn't have to come down here and bother you at work!" We chatted for about 45 minutes about everything under the sun.
It was like a ton of bricks landed on my head. Oh. She really wants to hang out with me. Most of the time, I think people are just trying to be nice.
I always think that everyone else has plenty of friends. They're busy. Doing cool stuff.
This time, I'm going to make a good effort. Not let fear take over and let it go.
I just told her to call me and let me know which afternoon this week is good for us to spend some time together. She could use a little help with her business and offered me some free services in exchange. But honestly, I think she just wants to be friends.
I'll let you know how it goes. You can never have too many friends. And I really like her.
