Single J Girl: No Love Triangle After All

So Sports Guy and I have been seeing each other quite a bit these days, I’ve met his friends, he’s met mine (they all highly approve, or at least that’s what they say), we’ve gone out on the town, over to dive bars, to the movies and stayed in together. He even taught me a little about the Indy 500 and why the guy who won isn’t JUST Ashley Judd’s husband. He brought me to Hollywood Park and taught me about betting on horses, and I made him two indie rock mixes to expand his musical horizons from Jay Z and Biggie, which I think are currently the only CD’s in his car.

Sports Guy is great- we’re having the best time together and besides for being a tad too much into sports and Saved By the Bell repeats, there aren’t any real red flags. I like Sports Guy more and more each day, and while a week and a half ago I was trying to avoid having the “what are we talk” as much as possible, after this weekend of logging in numerous Sports Guy hours, I kind of want him to bring it up. That’s right, I think I want Sports Guy to be my boyfriend.

Like officially.

I know, I know, “Single Jew Girl, why don’t YOU just bring it up?” is probably what you’re thinking, but right or wrong I’ve had a strict policy since I started dating at 16, that the guy I’m seeing must bring up the “what are we talk” first or else it doesn’t count. They also have to say the “L” word first or else it doesn’t count either. Crazy and insecure, I know, but it’s my policy and I’m sticking to it.

Having said that, Sports Guy HAS in fact talked about our relationship status, albeit when he’s had a few beers. We all know that alcohol can be truth serum, and the things he says are wonderful- “I adore you”, “I’m crazy about you Single Jew Girl”-all fantastic, but I’d trust it more if it were coming from a sober place and not right after sex.
